The current indigenous people of the city of Douala, the "Duala" come from this town of Matadi in DR Congo.
It is a people with about 50,000 people now.
They say that they arrived in Douala in the Cameroonian coast around the year 1450. Their language is similar to Kikongo and many of their words are also similar to Lingala.
Many Congolese friends of mine say that they understand about 45% of the Duala language.
