Falling into the soup at birth in August 1992, he discovered his passion for public speaking, dance and drawing from the age of 5. A true bohemian, a single book cannot tell its story. Alidou TOUGMA was born in the land of upright men and the adventure takes him to the land of eagles and hippos, Mali. Much more than hospitality, the land of griots will offer it a new life, declaimed with joys and sorrows. But with courage and relentlessness, his brilliant academic career will command respect and admiration to the highest peak of the state. From the award for best student to that of best President of the Children's Government, Alidou will repeatedly testify to his love for poetry through several laurels including the 1st prizes of: Poetry from his establishment in 2007, national poetry-slam competition for the 45th anniversary of La Francophonie, national Maxi Vacance poetry competition, best slam text, online slam competition ...

In April 2018, the staff of the 2nd edition of the Hello Vacances Festival gave him all the confidence and appointed him president of the juries. Used to associative and particularly youthful movements, he joined the UNESCO Clubs of the Malian Federation of UNESCO Clubs and Associations and then became a leader in his artistic activities from 2018 to the present day. Leader, nowadays he activates a large part of his efforts in the coordination of the UNESCO Clubs of the Left Bank of Bamako. Towards the end of 2019, his courage and determination led him to coordinate the slam (training workshop, supervision, supervision and animation / slamaster / MC) at the 7th edition of the Christmas Hip-Hop Festival.
