Gilly Doumbe - Things like this 1990


During the late eighties Gilly Doumbe was a popular session guitarist, who participated on many Makossa records. In 1990 he made a versy successful record titled Makossa Syndrum on Aladji Toure's record label. With the hit song Things like this, he dominated the Cameroon dancefloors during 1990 and 1991. His next album My feeling with the song Virgule did also very well. After this record he disappeared from the scene and does not seem to have released any new album since then.
