ARISTIDE LOUA represent KENTE GENTLEMAN from Ivory Coast
Aristide Loua was born in the village of Gadouan in western Ivory Coast. His mother says she gave birth to him with the help of her sisters, naturally and with the means at hand, behind her earthenware kitchen.
Two years later, Loua’s 100% Bété family moved to the far north, to Korhogo, where they lived for 7 years.
The family then moved to Dikodougou before settling in Yopougon, Abidjan.
At the end of June 2005, Aristide‘s family moved to New Delhi, India. As a teenager, he moved on his own to Pondicherry, where he spent his last two years of high school.
After graduating from high school, Loua took a year off, then moved to Utah and New York to pursue his studies in mathematics and actuarial science.
After traveling the globe, Aristide returned home in 2015 to reconnect with his roots and actively launch Kente Gentlemen.
