the 3.500 seat Salle de Congres of Palais du Peuple in Kinshasa, used to have big events of artists and bands like Wenge 4x4, BCBG, OK Jazz, Zaiko, Papa Wemba, Koffi Olomide, Emeneya, Tabu Ley, etc.

If i was a big artist I would prefer Salle des Congres above the small GHK (ex'Intercontinental).

from what i know its a bit like one of the reason why they have not been performing at martyrs anymore,spiritual reasons
i think its a former minister of culture who decided that and it was never changed since,while jb and koffi wanted to performed there(together) for example when they were still good friends

man that's so stupid....  what about Cinemax ? Because that was I guess the only big hall along with Palais du Peuple were they could perform.  I remember an interview of Koffi Olomide 2 years ago, where he was almost crying that they could not perform anymore at the GHK.

yep,authorities accused musicians of doing too much spiritual stuff there which would interact with their own thing
 so the relationship between musicians and the guys who'd give authorization to perform there became so bad that it took months for wazekwa to be allowed to shoot his mutu ya liboma generique in front of the hall
