Prince Eyango started singing in a folkore singing group in Douala in 1980. In the second half of the 1980s, his star was rising and the song You Must Calculer was a big hit both in Cameroon as in the rest of francophone Africa.
Other hits such as Les Problèmes followed, but in 1992, Eyango decided to leave Cameroon and he settled in California. After a couple of difficult years, he finally came back with a new album recorded in 1995, Another Part of Me.
He now owns a production company, Preya Music Corporation, and is frequently performing in the United States.
