Aimé-Romarin Billong (born June 11, 1970 in Moundou, Chad) is a former Cameroonian football player.

He played for the Cameroon national football team and a few clubs in France. In October 1999 he signed for Premier League side West Ham United to play under Harry Redknapp. However, he never made a first team appearance for the club.[1]

He was a participant at the 1998 African Cup of Nations, playing in the group match against Burkina Faso and the quarterfinal against Congo DR.[2] Billong also represented Cameroon during 1998 World Cup qualifiers,[3] but he was not included in the 22-man squad for the final tournament in France.
