Donny was born in Cameroon and grew up in Paris. Ever since he can remember his home was filled with love for African music, dance and culture. His first memory of dancing is the dance with his beloved mother, "Dancing gives me freedom to express myself, my emotions through movements".
In 2008, when he moved to London, the multinational and multicultural mixture of this city allowed him to discover kizomba, and that is where his journey with the beautiful dance began. In 2011 he won his first competition and became UK Africadancar champion. Shortly after that he joined a prestigious teaching school, where with Iris de Brito and a team of other wonderful dancers he trained his skills to become UK Africadancar champion for the second time in 2012.
"Kizomba gives me that incredible feeling where I can loose myself and find myself at the same moment, that's the beauty of it". His energy and talent were noticed not only by locals, but also international promoters, and he began teaching outside the UK and across European boarders. He also appeared in 2011 and 2012 UK edition of "I Got To Dance".
