None of the booklets Next Music made for Koffi  were on the level of Sono and Sonodisc. Do you also have Wake Up ?

Thanks for posting the booklet. A big to shout-out to Koffi Olomide, Papa Wemba, Popolipo, Maika Munan, Philipe Guez, Souzy Kaseya, Alain Makaba and Jean Marie Motingia of Zaiko(Koffi used to be a big fan of him) for the big work. Till this day Clan-Wenge fans, their journalists and leaders keeps minimizing this album and see it as attack to their legacy, acting like they are better than Wemba & Koffi and that the Congolese music-scene only belonged to them, being still traumatised the way their elders demolished Pentagone.

Koffi Olomide and Wemba are credited as songwriters, but the most songs aren't even written by him. The songs like Wake Up and Litio Ya Calendrier are written by Colombani Wasenga (R.I.P.), the song Naomie was written by Max Mongali (R.I.P.) of the old Yeye National (who also orginally written the song Esclave for Papa Wemba backin the 80s), songs like Dodo Mpela & Esakola by Bogus Bompema who used to be leader of Lemba Musica of Binda Bass, Sweet Elesse, Bourman Idolo, Armand Ngolo (R.I.P.) and co.

Wake Up is in my opinion one of the best duo-albums in the world. But many people see Wake Up as a Koffi-album, but it were the Wemba songs of Wake Up who had were big hits (Mi-Amor, Esakola, Maryama Terre Batue and Dodo) while of the songs credited to Koffi (except Wake Up) were not big hits compared to those of Wemba. The album would give Koffi a bigger boost, who was already a big star in Africa and a little bit in the shadow of Wemba who then a big star in western world, because of Le Voyageur and Emotion and had then a big fanbase in Kinshasa (if you will say it today, many people won't believe you or even attack you, but it's the truth. You can't change history), so crazy that Wemba lost all the respect he had in the mid 90's in one minute.

Its a shame that the two guys didn't make a big tour around Europe, America, Asia and Africa to promote Wake Up. Just after the release of the album they restarted beefing again, because of "songi songi" from their so called "common friends" who told to Wemba that Koffi attacked him in the song Moussoukou-Soukou by saying "pona ko kanga ki-pungu pungi, il faut kotia soyi". There were already conflicts during the recording, because of Koffi don't wanting to share the mabanga-money he received from donors and fans with Wemba (Wemba sung all his friends and donors for free) and Wemba calling him a "commercent" and saying Bavard vas (Emeneya profiting from it after the release of Wake Up, being furious then he didn't receive a shout-out and releasing a VHS with the title "Bavard Vas" and attacking both guys).

Litio ya Calendrier is a song credited to Koffi Olomide. According to Colombani Wasenga the song had to be credited to Papa Wemba, since that wrote Wake Up for Koffi Olomide and Litio ya Calendrier for Papa Wemba. But Koffi Olomide apparently felt in love with the text that is difficult to understand, so he asked Wemba if he could credit the song to himself which Wemba accepted.



from 9:12 min he is explaining the song Litio ya Calendrier

Me being a massive fan of Alain Makaba's work, I never knew that he did the solo of "Zaintoin". I only thought that he did the solo to "Esakola".

The album booklet of Droit De Veto is so well done. A lot of time and effort went into it.

The acoustic quality of all the songs on the album were really top notch, alway find myself listening to it.
