Mankon at the age of 14. But he finally got serious with his carrier
when his elder brother Blueprint Hakeem started recording his own songs
and will take Fame along to the studio to jointly do tracks. This  
introduced him to the microphone proper and performing on university of
buea nights and student parties. It was not until his big brother Hakeem
did his second video, “Ma Head Di Hot” which featured Young Fame, then
Fame got fully emerged into Cameroon’s list of rappers with his single
