Afanyu got interested in music at the very early age of seven when he started playing conga and shakers in church. While leading the church service one Sunday, he discovered his singing skills upon deciding to lead the service in songs and not in standard speech as customarily required. His music echoes his rich sonic heritage given his prolonged exposure to gospel and traditional music. It is an ode to indigenous rhythms tinged inspirationally with modernity.

Between 2016 and 2018, he worked with a collaborative artistic initiative, Living Studios, in Bamenda, recording two tracks, “Duntombi” and “Wap Libi”. In 2022 he released an album of 20 combined songs featuring artists like Viola Konfor and Tata which is available both online for streams and offline on flash drives.

Afanyu believes so much in Africa and the potentials Africa possess to conquer. He so much values the African culture and encourage Africans to count more on themselves for growth and development. Formerly recording as Ambiano Ndiku, he continues extending the frontiers of his music to take his positive messages to new audiences. Afanyu means God given in Limbum, his mother tongue. It represents his recognition of gospel music’s formative influence in his musical upbringing and a commitment to making only positive music.
