Emmanuel Eboa Lotin (also written as Lottin), son of Reverend Adolf Lotin A Same, who composed many church chorals, has been brought up with music. Still, he was more of a self-taught musician, since he has not received a formal musical education. He recorded a first song in 1962, which was a starting point of a successful career of 35 years. He died in 1997 following a protracted illness.

Born: August 6, 1942 in Douala, died in October 1997.
Style: classic makossa.
