Abdel, l’enfant du Sahel (“the child of Sahel”) as he was called in prison, spent only three months in prison after being mistaken for another man on the scene of a car theft. Originally from the Sahelian north of Cameroon, Abdel sings in his native Fulbé language as well as in French, Senegalese Wolof and Arabic. A hard-worker and passionate rapper, Abdel still goes to prison from time to time to record his songs. His musical style ranges from rap to afro and raggae.
