As a boy growing up in the village of Mankon in Bamenda, Cameroon, Achu always could feel his heartbeat synchronizing with the drum beats played by the village dance groups around him. Being the son of a guitarist, He soon picked up the guitar and started playing to these African rhythms.
Soon after, Jazz music caught his attention and he was engulfed in the harmonic minor swing feel. He started experimenting by combining the African rhythm guitar playing style with Latin chops and a dash of jazz. All these, coupled with his soulful sounding voice, have enabled him to be able to tell his story to the world.
