Early Life And Education
Matthieu was reared in Strasbourg with his elder brother Julien by his father, retired professional soccer player Andre Tota, and mother, homemaker Brigitte Tota. Matthieu was 13 years old after his parents split.
He attended a local primary school in Hohberg, Germany, it was then that he developed a particular interest in football.
Matthieu had hoped to continue in his father’s footsteps and become a professional soccer player, but he fell in love with music and decided to focus on it instead. He attended a high school in Mundolsheim, France, before transferring to Schiltigheim, near his homeland.
Matthieu matriculated in 2003 but did not attend college.
Matthieu began his career in 2003, under the stage name Pokora, which means “humility” in Polish because his grandmother is of Polish heritage. He was one of the most popular candidates on the third season of the French TV singing contest show “Popstars.” Matthieu formed the boy band Linkup with some of the other two winners, Otis and Lionel, and they won the season by competing against the girl band Diadems in the show’s finale.
Linkup then released their debut single, “Mon Etoile,” followed by their debut album, “Notre Etoile,” a few weeks later. Linkup split not soon after their second single, “Une Seconde D’eternite,” failed to garner any notice.
Matthieu went on to establish his solo album with the publication of his new album “Matt Pokora,” which had been re-released in 2005 as “M. Pokora.” The album’s lead song, “Showbiz (The Battle),” became a smash in France, as well as in Switzerland and Belgium. Matthieu’s second song, “Elle me Controle,” debuted at #6 on the French chart and earned him two NRJ Music Awards (NRJ is a French radio show).
