Bijou was born in Praia. After being spotted at local Sporting Clube da Praia by scouts from S.L. Benfica he moved to Portugal, playing his first year as a senior with the reserve side in the third division.
Benfica B folded after that season and Bijou was loaned, alongside teammate Nicolás Canales, to Gondomar S.C. in the second level, where he only played one league game. Released by the Eagles in the 2007 summer he met the same fate at his next club, C.D. Fátima in the same division, having to resume his career in the lower leagues of the country.
