BIOGRAPHY

Fonyuy Leonard Nsohburinka, better known as Mr Leo, is a Cameroonian singer/songwriter who was born on August 21, 1990, in Buea. He is the third of four children. Mr Leo grew up in a small military barracks named Wander Barracks near Clerks Quarters in the heart of Buea, Cameroon’s southernmost city.

Mr Leo grew up as a member of the church choir, honing his singing abilities. He is a performer of the Afro-pop, Hip-hop, and dancehall genres.

He made his formal debut in the scene in early 2014, with the release of his track “E Go Better.” The song received a lot of exposure and everyone who heard it was moved by its cool vibe, attractive lyrics, and catchy tune. His fate was sealed after, and he soared to stardom almost instantly.
