The Most Reverend Paul Mbiybe Verdzekov died on 26 January 2010. In 2020, a file was opened to gather material so that the course of canonization could begin. Many believe him to have lived a holy life, and hope he would be declared a Saint some day. Before then, Nsay ki la had done this tribute to him, highlighting some of his outstanding qualities: man of integrity, truthfulness, assiduity, holiness, respect, simplicity. This a capella version of the song was first released on 26 January 2019, although it had been produced a year before.
He was born in Shisong on 22 January 1931 and ordained priest on 20 December 1961. On 13 August 1970, he was appointed Bishop of the newly created diocese of Bamenda.
