Louis Brody (February 15, 1892 Douala-February 11, 1952 Berlin) a.k.a. Lewis Brody, M'bebe Mpessa, Levis Brody, Lovis Brody or Lewis Brody-Upasso was a Cameroonian actor and musician.

He was part of the African American community of artists and musicians in Paris during the 1920s and 1930s, and was known for his performances on stage and in films. Brody appeared in several films in the 1930s, including the French film "L'Hirondelle et la Mesange" and the German film "Polizeiakte 909". He was also a talented musician and played the saxophone and clarinet. During World War II, Brody was imprisoned in a concentration camp in Germany, where he tragically died just before his scheduled release. His legacy as a pioneering African performer in Europe and his tragic end have made him a symbol of the many African artists who faced discrimination and persecution during the war.
