Some people have a face that’s unforgettable while others have names that are so unique that you can’t help but memorize it instantly. Mendeecees is definitely one of those names that gets up and slaps you in the face the first time you hear it. So when Yandy Smith‘s baby daddy made his debut on the third season of “Love & Hip Hop,” people immediately began to talk.

We perused Mendeecees’ Twitter feed to find out a little more about him, so everyone can get up to speed on a few good facts about Mendeecees.

1. Mendeecees Is Panamanian

With a name like Mendeecees, we couldn’t even begin to guess his ethnic background so it’s good that he cleared up this question early. Seriously, though. Panamanian was a surprise. Is his Spanish any good?

Uh, what country? Sidenote: Omere, the name of his son with Yandy, also has an African name. It’s Nigerian.
