Videoclip: Sergeo Polo
Serge Mpollo a.k.a.  Sergeo Polo was born in Deido (Douala) on November 14 1970. He was raised by his mother and his maternal grandparents. He started singing at school concerts when he was in college. In the twelfth grade he decided te become a full time singer and stopped his studies. He performed several years in night clubs where he accompanied some well known big names such as Eboa Lotin, Salle John, Ben Decca and many others.
Then he went to Paris where he married and became father to a daughter, Melissa. In November 1996 he released a duet album with "Njohreur", a former singer of "Les Sans Visas de Petit Pays". The record  "Le mari d'autrui" was well received in Cameroon and in 1998 Sergeo Polo came with his first solo record "Carton rouge".
During the making of a tribute album for Eboa Lotin he met Aladji Toure, which led to the production of the record "Georgie" on Toure's label in November 2000. With three successful albums in less then five years, Sergeo Polo soon became a household name in the Makossa community. It is therefore not surprising that he managed to bring together some of the biggest names in Cameroon music for his next album "La chicotte de Papa". With the help of Guy Nsangue, Aladji Toure, Manulo, Congolese guitar wizard Caen Madoka and Jean Philippe Tamba as arranger he won a gold disc and the title of 'best artist of 2003'.
The same year he did another duet album with legendary singer Guy Lobe released as CD and DVD under the name "Cocktail". With "The Prisoner " an album released in November 2005, he stayed at the top of the Cameroonian music and in March 2006 , he was once again honored by the Cameroonian public who chose him for again as best male artist of 2005.
In 2008 he released a mini album "On est ensemble" at the request of "d'Orange Cameroun" that  accompanied all events organised by the mobil operator and the Cameroon National team "Les Lions Indomptable".
