In the second half of the 1980s, Papy Ndoumbe's musical career got off to a flying start with two successful albums, Lézard trompeur in 1987 and A saute mouton in 1989. After that, it became quiet around this promising singer/guitarist. I read somewhere that he was disabled as a result of a serious accident. That may explain the shortness of his musical career. In 1997, another CD of his is released with the title Cathy remix, on which a number of songs from his two previous albums can be heard in a new remix. However, this album does not contain any new songs. It seems that Papy Ndoumbe now lives in Germany.
