Yannick Noah (born 18 May 1960) is a former professional tennis player from France. He is best remembered for winning the French Open in 1983 and as a highly successful captain of France's Davis Cup and Fed Cup teams.

 During his career, which spanned almost two decades, Noah captured a total of 23 singles titles and 16 doubles titles, reaching a career-high singles ranking of World No. 3 (in July 1986) and attaining the World No. 1 doubles ranking the following month.

Since his retirement from the game, Noah has remained in the public eye as a popular music performer and as the co-founder, with his mother, of a charity organization for underprivileged children.

Noah is also the father of Joakim Noah of the NBA New York Knicks.

Saga Africa


"Saga Africa" (subtitled "Ambiance Secousse" in smaller letters on the single cover) is a song recorded by the former professional tennis player Yannick Noah, released in 1991 as the first single from his debut album, Black & What. The song is also available on the singer's album entitled Live, released in 2002.

The album Black & What was a success (certified Gold), and the single "Saga Africa", that mixes a special and sporty dance (a kind of African caterpillar), became one of the summer hits in France. Yannick Noah created the surprise performing the song on December 2, 1991, at the Palais des Sports of Gerland, Lyon, during the honour tour of the Davis Cup just after the victory of the French team that he was the captain, accompanied by his team for the dance.

Yannick Noah composed the lyrics himself, a mixture of French and Cameroonian expressions, while the rest of the album Black & What is mainly in English. He deliberately sings with a relatively pronounced accent.

The lyrics include a tribute to the footballers of the Cameroon national football team named Les Lions Indomptables, especially Roger Milla, François Omam-Biyik and Thomas Nkono, whose names are mentioned in the words. He also refers to Paris and Yaoundé, soukouss and makossa. The music uses a sample of a Snap!'s song, "Mary Had a Little Boy".
