Asobo, Mnafor Kammeyneu, known to all as Kiss, was born in Yaoundé, Cameroon on October 27, 1982 to Greg and Angela Asobo together with her identical twin sister, Asobo Nchang, that we called Honeychild but who passed away shortly after birth. With her sisters Valerie and Mambi and her brothers Beau and Lisbon, Kiss is part of the extended families of Asobo and Cheyip.
After completing nursery, primary, secondary and high school in Limbe, Maroua, Bamenda and Ashing-Kom respectively, she started university studies in Cameroon before proceeding to the DEVRY Institute of Technology in Denver, Colorado in 2002. She moved on from there and went to Collin Community College in Plano Texas. Thereafter she obtained her Licensed Vocational Nurse degree and worked for several companies.
An unassuming and modest person, her greatest achievements cannot be put on paper for they required neither certification nor endorsement, and seldom required recognition. She was a devout catholic Christian and was very actively involved in several volunteer, youth training, meditating, and prayer groups. She lived her life in constant dedication to others, and would be remembered as a devoted daughter, sister, aunt, a very caring mother to her twin sons Joseph-Kolbe and Jude-Vincent, and friend.
Her greatest wish was to be a humanitarian worker for the United Nations Organization and to own and run an orphanage. Unfortunately, that was not to be. She came and went like a shooting star, as she passed into glory in the loving presence of her family in the early hours December 8, 2019.
