‘My mother is from Manenberg on the Cape Flats and my father is from Cameroon. I can’t remember much about my early years but a move to Johannesburg changed my life. I was five when we moved and I was really excited to explore a new place. Unfortunately, my two older siblings that my mom had before she married my dad, stayed with my grandmother in Cape Town. My mom was struggling to fi nd work after we moved to Johannesburg so I remember my parents being happy when she got a job in London in the telecommunications industry. They thought it was a good financial opportunity so they decided I would stay with my father while my mother worked in London. I remember feeling sad when they told me that I would stay behind with my dad.
