Andem was born in Douala. After starting his professional career with hometown's Union Douala (which included a loan spell at Olympic Mvolyé) he moved to Brazil, where he represented Cruzeiro Esporte Clube and Esporte Clube Bahia.
In January 1998 Andem joined Portuguese league outfit Boavista FC where, during the following five seasons, he would have engage in an interesting battle for first-choice status with future Sporting Clube de Portugal and Portuguese international Ricardo Pereira. However, during the Chequereds' 2001 national championship conquest – the club's only – he played just six matches.
After Ricardo left for the capital club, Andem was restored as starter, losing the position midway through 2004–05 to new signing Carlos. He again would gain starter status after the Angolan was sold to FC Steaua Bucureşti, amassing a further 43 league games in two seasons.
