Tonye (pronounce: Tôn-yè) has been, at least in Cameroon, quite popular as a soukous singer during the 1980s and 1990s. Of Bassaa origin (as opposed to most makossa stars who are generally Douala), he mixes this Congolese music style with makossa and antillian zouk. The result is hot and very dancable.



Born: as Tonye Bienvenu
Style: soukous, makossa, afro-zouk.
