Nabil Mbombo Njoya, 28, is now the leader of the Bamoun people in the West Region of Cameroon.
He was crowned King on Sunday, October 10, just a day after his father, Ibrahim Mbombo Njoya, was buried.
He was made king based on the tradition of the Bamoun people.
He succeeded his father who died recently at 83 in a hospital in France.
“Nabil Mbombo Njoya is a rather discreet young man who does not flaunt his belonging to the royal family,” CRTV refers to him.
