Today I was thinking about African artists behave and perform musically in the world. If South African artists are so tribal that ironically black South African gather only the views of their tribes and Afrikaaners get the vuews if all the White Western world. I see that Nigerian are performing and behaving well for example I am following Burna Boy amd he had a show in Italy in Rome (Yes the same racist Italy I have talked about many times and Rome is ome of the most racist city ever) and getting all this milions of streams and getting also interviews with many many media outlets.  Why Congolese artist can't reach the same? I mean Fally tried it but since Ecole something changed. Man it is so sad that Nigerians and Ghanaians are getting iver world music making something that we created






Do you think is going to be a Congolese artist whi can do tht? Furthermore if you check his music all those English Born who are of Nigerian or Ghanaian origins are collaborating with Africam born Nigerian artists while is rare tosee Ferre working with Niska, Maitre Gims working with Fally etc. The only guys who are trying to do that are Naza and KeBlack but only because Koffi and Fally wanted to expamd in France

It all comes down to language. English is a international language whether we like or not and if you take a closer look most of these successful African artist songs are in English. Plan and simple, the language is the problem.

Yes even the best francophone artists or even actors try to reach anglophone audience to make a big step ahead
also for the congolese music the industry is one of the reasons of being behind nigerians,we have almost no international lobby and no national either

Come on guys. I don't think is the language Shakira performed in the superbowl yes she has some songs in English but the majority of her songs are in spanish. Furthermore reggaeton artists are the huys who are the most listened in the world despite only Spanish and South American speaking spanish I think that it is a problem of marketing. I hate to say it but our artists are so childish. For example Innoss is starting to advance becauee he refuse to go and bite into this game bigger leaders play to make him seem like he is not respectful. But since Innoss like o be on good terms with Everybody. Congolese media drain him because he is in good terms with Ferre and Fally media base doesn't like this.
For example you know France. It is always a Congolese artist on top wheter he is a rapper or a singer why? Because Congolese artiats in France are united to me it is about leaving childish legacy behind

Shakira hits are in English and she’s known more for those songs, not the ones in Spanish. Reggae music contains English. Our artists will never break out to that level with French and Lingala.

The nigerians and ivorians before them are doing what congolese music should have been doing. Even hough language is a huge barrier, there is so much chaos behind congolese music structure wise. Conolese artists are the best live performers ever , that is a fact, our dancing, our rhythm are unmatched, but there is no unity, we dont want to adapt to new norms, too much infighting, that scares away people , and people freely steal from us. That is why i really support people like nana , keblack etc... these kids are bringing a new breath to the culture, we have to grow mentally, evolve business wise and adapt to modern marketing ventures but then also our artist have to promote more congolese artists, but then again what do i know ?
