Ferdinand FORKA (O’boy) has been performing for about a decade now but his big debuts began in 2007 upon his entry into the University of Yaoundé 1 when he joined the PRIMS GRASSFIELD ENTERTAINMENT Theatre Band.

He created with NJUME Felix (Mp3) the FUNNY DOCTORS in 2010, a group of stand-up comedians which has today over 7 Stand-up Comedians. With the group, they have done three editions of the 32 Comdey Nite Stand (Comedy Show).
Upon his entry into the NIYS Yaoundé since 2011, he has been a member of the NIYS Theatre Band, where he appeared in a number of theatre plays and performing Stand-up comedy as well.
Though an Anglophone, O’boy is unique in his capacity to fluently perform in the English and in the French Languages, but he identifies himself principally as an Anglophone Comedian.
On November 30, 2013, O’boy in collaboration with the Catholic University Center (CCU) Yaoundé organized “Saintsof the Ribs”, a FERDINAND Forka (O’boy) Concept that was aimed to raise funds to assist orphanages and in the Construction of the New CCU Parish .
