He came to Brikama in 1997 to join his mother. He followed the family tradition because of his uncle, because his father was a soldier. His uncle brought him to the market and taught him. In 1998 he started working in the arts, specializing in the design of bowls, though also working on other carvings. He has 5 children who go to school, some seem interested, but he does not know what they want. He was raised in an area covered by fruit trees, and they’ve always inspired him.
