Mboua, like so many other children, started to learn football on the streets of his home city, Cameroonian capital Yaoundé. In 1999, along with another 300 boys Mboua took part in trials at local club Elpida de Yaoundé. He stayed there, as part of their academy, for two years, before moving to Racing FC Bafoussam, where he spent only one season.
In 2006, he followed the path of many African footballers to France, where he joined SC Feignies in the CFA2 division. Here he stayed for only one season before moving to The Netherlands, to join Eerste Divisie side SC Cambuur.
During his time in Egypt, Mboua met a French woman, Sophie, whom he married. They now have a daughter together, Mélissa. On 18 April 2007 a DJ by the name of "DJ Sergio" released a track entitled "Buldo" – Mboua's nickname, a song that is a tribute to Mboua, his family and concerns the obstacles in his career.
