#MarchWithTito #Interview | Tito Valery, Part I - The Bio

In Cameroon, Chifor Tito Valery (@Titoval) is THE entertainment guru. From hosting to photography, Tito always has that cool effect that makes him one of the best at what he does. In his country, he is undeniably a powerful inspiration to a large and growing fan base that crosses genders, ethnicities, and even demographics. Dreadlocked, a killer smile, a swag like never seen before, plus a smart brain and a creative mind to match, what’s not to like about this native of Bamenda (English speaking part of Cameroon), who now runs the big cities of Douala and Yaounde? There are so many great things to know about this young African mover and shaker and we couldn’t just make it a one-part interview. So we are kick-starting a weekly series during the month of March and dubbing it MarchWithTito.  This month, we are embarking on a steady walk led by Tito. Let's go!

To warm up, Tito let us get to know him as a person, from his favorite drink to his flaws and of course, the hustle. Enjoy!
