African History

World's First Black Diamond Manufacturer

Real name: ¨ André Action Diakité Jackson ¨ (aka M’zée Fula-Ngenge)
(born in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France)

The former rough diamond dealer began his career mining and supplying diamonds. In 1987, he opened his first diamond-cutting factory in Mbuji-Mayi, Democratic Republic of Congo (formerly Zaïre). Nine months later, he opened another one in Kinshasa, which now operates as a full-service diamond company. His operations have expanded throughout every diamond producing country in Africa, and he has successfully set up cutting factories in Antwerp, Dubai, Tokyo, New York and Houston.
