@CM PRINCE

I agree, why didn't he join them again?

He was ready to join them and had already the visa and ticket in his pocket. Les Marquis in Paris made clear that he was on his way to join them and they put even his picture on the ad-poster of their first concert in LSC. But the interview they made with Yves Kambala made Baby Ndombe change his mind. Because that interview made clear that they would not last more than 1 year or even 6 months lol (I hope that they will upload that interview one day). Baby Ndombe was also not happy the way they didn't credit him as founder of the band in Kinshasa when they were preparing Les Marquis-project back 2003 before getting suspended. So he decided to recreate his own band and record Tour de Babel. He went to give concerts in Kinshasa who were several times interrupted by Maison Mere-fans or cancelled because dead threats or callphones from Werrason-staff. I think that it would have boosted both Ferre Gola and Baby Ndombe if they united their forces. But the 5eme generation artists are very different then their older brothers of the 4th and 3rd generation.

It didn't fail. It was just that the album was bad promoted in the first two months when they released the album. Many people were even not aware about the release of the album and they were all focused on the banger of Alerte Generale. The album started to be a succes when the band disbanded. On the end it was considered as the best album of 2005 behind Monde Arabe.
