he says he does not understand why combattants are mixing politics with entertainment, kabila leaving or not has nothing to do with music,so he is confused and french authorities cancelled concert because what happened was pure terrorism so they  had no other choice than fearing it worsens and apparently they told him to postpone it
one of the artists who should have performed along with heritier,dibi dobo from benin was assaulted in all that mess and is in emergency at the moment
the ban is not affecting only congolese people but also people from other countries because our stars have fans in several countries and the concert was also an occasion to officially launch his channel bblack africa so there were other artists such as dibi dobo from benin,waly seck from senegal,fababy from france/ivory coast
he had agreed with french police on the security as he knew that combattants were eagerly waiting for whenever artists try to do their job here to come and cause havoc he even wrote to minister of interior who had given him green light for concert,olympia's boss got scared with what happened especially with combattants calling to tell them they'd pay tickets as if they came for concert and cause what happened at bataclan
he is asked whether this could make him fear to produce congolese artists and he says no he is a guy who does not  take step back and he wont let it go like that he will put french authorities in front of their responsabilities because that's their responsability to make sure to handle such stuff because if it was french star johnny hallyday performing no way they'd cancel 30 minutes before start of concert
so he'll continue legal action in any possible way starting from the french association of producers and again authorities
he is disappointed of course but he does not give up

But why can't they round up the leaders and paralyse this organization? It's not like they are not known. In the UK they managed to hold that peace concert in "Manchester" after the initial event was abandoned due to terrorist acts. Now in this case these guys and their intentions are known. It should be easy to lock them up.
David is right. If it was a French artist they would not tolerate such acts of sabotage.

Merci monsieur Archos pour le translation, I was actually thinking if David Monsoh will stop producing Congolese artists because of this. It's disrespectful that the police canceled on an African artist after giving the okay. Hope the Didi Dobo will be okay, I taught the BBlack channel was already running.

This is utter rubbish! Some miscreants gathered themselves to go disrupt the peace of a concert and the French police couldn't stand to protect the people and artistes coming for the concert. This is terrible!  Seriously, Congolese artistes have got to form a united front and fight this anomaly to a definite end! This would keep happening if it is not handled properly now. This shows how envy and rivalry can eat up the soul of a man and turn him to a devil.

 toolz you just raised one big issue here for black community in france,sometimes you'll call them to rescue as you are assaulted or witness a fight and they'd control you as if you were the guy doing those things
and they also have developped some "'well,them again,ok let just move on" thing because of how in several cities here african or afro carribean nightclubs are quite often closed by police due to too much fights
 so i think they do not take the issue too seriously, the french guys  especially wazekwa should keep going in their fight instead of  fearing that if they get a strong decision from authorities quickly they'd get very bothered outside music
and i feel that might  be the other issue we'll face should concert happen the first ones will be surely followed by combattants tracking them outside music at any opportunity for revenge

this message from former music journalist jacky ndala who has gone a lot into fighting against kabila pleased me a lot
 let me translate he said
" i cant attack my brothers for the fight against kabila's system but i strongely disagree with those wanting to pretend suceeding in cancelling heritier's concert is a victory,no no and no,that would be belittling the real big fight we have ahead
the real fight is about our country the guy from electoral commission came to europe to announce to european authorities  that elections are postponed and there were nowhere near such noise as about the concert
look at how congolese people from all around europe came to paris to be fully involved in blocking the concert of a young guy who has not even  really cemented his solo career
unfortunately,its the blocking of the concert and all the havoc done which made the headlines around the world while it has zero influence on congolese people's daily life  in kinshasa and co
 lets wake up our enemy is smart and wants to stay president for a long time and lets realise that we have  much bigger issues than music
the real enemies of congo are known (he clearly named some congolese authorities without any fear) and they are totally free and enjoying their life, so lets have courage to expose them and try to make them stop "working" the way we have been doing with musicians
this is what we have to even throw our life on the line for
