Celebrating African musician Manu Dibango

Cameroon's most famous musician and perhaps one of Africa's most dearly loved, Manu Dibango, has turned 80.

The saxophonist's career began in the 1950s and he has since become a globe-trotting musician, living and regularly performing in France, Belgium, Jamaica, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Ivory Coast and in Cameroon.

His music has provided inspiration for pop stars, from Michael Jackson to Rihanna.

BBC Africa's Sophie Ikenye asked him which of many, many performances he now finds the most memorable.
