Why did Alain Mpela's career fail? I thought Intifada was well received, plus he had a solid band. I heard he was offered Ministry of Culture position, but declined

Intifada wasn't well received it flopped, because of multiple problems (I talked about it in other threads). Alain Mpela's career failed because he already made a false start with Intifada and he made it worser by his behaviour (prefering to sleep long like JB and let his musicians rehearse without him), spending months long in Europe and putting his money in unnecessary luxury instead of his band.

He became the adviser of the minister of culture, but he had health issues. His sister Gisele is Felix Tshisekedi's second wife.

i remember once i went to say hi and mosaka was there as alain tried to drag him into generation a and tell him to see how much roger is far more privileged and here he'd be spokesman and director of marketing,and that day alain was buying his 6 th expensive dog to the son of an ambassador
he was importing everything he ate from france haha even water
while he had a team which could have done big things
