Due to armed conflict in his region and financial difficulties, Vidiol was forced to drop out of secondary school three years ago. Despite being from a family of four children, his parents struggled to meet their basic needs.

In his TikTok videos, Vidiol often demonstrates his aircraft, some measuring about 2 meters long, flying along the streets with the aid of a remote control. His impressive creations caught the attention of government officials in Yaounde, Cameroon, who provided a battery to help him fly his prototype.

Vidiol’s exceptional skills have captivated many, including organizations and government officials. Recognizing his potential, an organization awarded him a scholarship to complete his education and pursue his engineering dreams.
