In short he says that he was tested when bcbg return from their first tour and it was hundreds of musicians who were tested in groups of 5(in another interview he says fally was in the group after him) and he was the 17th person tested that day and he sang conseil patcho and i love you from feux de l'amour and did an impro which became his famous impro of zenith olympia later and from then jb stopped tests and said he was  picked because he liked that traditional flavor in the way he sings which kinds of reminded him of werra at times in 4X4
and two months later they went to europe which was a dream come true for him since jb was his idol and he was saying to people he'd sing with jb and will go to europe way before bcbg existed and he did not realise he was in europe until he woke up in hotel and was joking with his roommate gentamicine lisimo  and the concert of zenith was so special because they prepared it very very seriously and he believes no group ever behave like them the day of concert as at 8 of the morning they were already at zenith with everything needed to eat,sleep,soundcheck and the concert was late in the night and they played non-stop like  on cds and dvds
he is asked about aimelia and that accident in canada which unfortunately caused dancer patricia bingetox to be paralysed,and he says his vieux aimelia had become too full of himself and was not listening to anybody anymore including jb,and jb gave order that everybody should be in the bus from toronto to montreal but aimelia decided on his own to follow friends in a car and they were driving fast while there was heavy rain and unfortunately they had that accident,and he insists on aimelia's ego saying he was trying to convince caludji and alain mpela to rebel together against jb(funnily enough yesterday when there was some discussion on forum about les marquis i said to myself what if when alain mpela left bcbg,he had got aimelia to leave maison mere and caludji to follow him and form a band together maybe we'd have one of them remaining in a strong position the way ferre resisted the best from marquis collapse) and even when returning from zenith tour,they postponed return because of alain mpela gone to germany to buy his car and in that tour alain mpela fought with titina as titina started as the chef d orchestre after blaise and since they did not want to risk returning without mpela and titina plus aimelia at the same time jb made sure to convince mpela to return with promise of making him the chef d'orchestre leaving titina with discipline role
he was asked about the period of campaign against older musicians in bcbg and how he was not targeted and he says it was a bit stupid that process since its actually the younger guys who become the least loyal to jb in the long run with djino abraham abel zakoko gone  while only him and bogus left among the older guys,and also unlike his friends of the older generation ,he understood that the best way to face them was artistically and not in terms of authority so he went toe to toe with them and fans gave him credit or that while his friends were not working hard to compete with the younger ones
he says his only regret in bcbg is not having been able to get european papers which would make his life easier now,and he says since they loved jb a lot they did not really push for that but also he thinks its was jb's responsability to tell them to go get it,and reveals that they could have got europeans papers in 1999  via the label secteur a but jb neglected that option preferring to go back to DRC ,which academia grabbed( and now jb seems to have changed a bit on it,jdl goes to europe,abraham had papers before leaving bcbg,trezeguet,patou solo...)
he reveals he was not meant to participate in the song liberez because sunda said he sang a lot in previous album already but he believes there was somebody behind sunda and when jb went to give a preview of the song on tv he grabbed a second of silence between singers' vocals to do his unexpected vocal and straight away that day,jb ordered people to pay studio session so that they add his part
 he is asked about the famous situation with djino which lead to djino leaving,and he says it all started from their return from europe tour,with djino becoming very arrogant and full of himself which surprised him because he was his pire petit he'd sometimes sleep at his house after chilling together or working and it all started in angola tour jb received threats from combattants of angola when the phenomenon freshly started so he gave order that musicians should not go to areas where there is strong congolese community because something bad could happen who knows and everybody listened except djino and  when djino got caught by combattants and questioned he responded in arrogant way and it was reported by some of the pro-bcbg combattants to jb and it started creating bad blood between jb and djino with jb not talking to djino anymore during the whole tour, and when they returned in kinshasa it was planned that all musicians including jb himself give their passport to secretary mbuta kiss,everybody gave it except djino and few times after jb received call from embassy informing him that djino had applied on his own but with the professional passport(by the way i now understand the passports issues which existed in the past when you could change the picture,musicians have two passports,a private one and a professional one which has visas of their tours and so on) it created even more distance
and the final nail in the coffin being that situation in lubumbashi at the house of producer djino took weed out of his pocket and wanted to smoke before eating and chai told him he should wait and go smoke outside afterwards and he  gave him very rude answers and the wife of producer called jb to say there was almost a fight between chai and djino and jb sent jdl and seguin who were with him at a donor's house to go check what was happening
and since jb is the type of people who can see you starting to act weird  and will take time to  watch your acts closely until you fall into a too big trap jb had seen several things already from djino and this one got him furious and when they came back to kinshasa he said djino was not welcome on stage when he arrives on stage so he should sing with the reserve guys and djino who found that insulting for his ego started missing concerts while him chai and seguin were doing their best so that jb forgives djino
then came an austral african tour and to be in the tour djino needed to get his passport back to get visa which he did not do obviously having the europe visa and fearing to lose it  and visa got cancelled by authorities since he lied to them
he says he goes to bcbg concerts whenever he wants because he has kept good relationship with jb and he never insulted him

How come Gentamicine's participation in Toujour Humble was so minimal even though he toured with them in Europe and participated in Zenith of 99? He only provided animations for Mohamed Kaniansy.

I agree with you, archos. I think they could have resisted BCBG and Masion Mere because Intifada was already a strong project especially with Tutu Calugi and Amelia were able to sing alongside Miel de Son, Dady Masudi, Mon ami Guelor, and Mirage Supersonic on the album.

This would have created a serious polemic, because Alain Mpela's departure from BCBG is attributed to Koffi. We already knew that Koffi helped fund Generation ABBA with instruments and studio time, so JB Mpiana would have been furious and attack them in Anti-Terror.

But again, Aimelia is a very arrogant personality in those days so who knows if they would have lasted.

genta was roommates with aimelia so as they were going to studio without aimelia automatically genta missed and kaniansy was done at last minute so thats where he participated plus the second generique which was never released in which genta mainly had tshiluba animations

What caused Burkina Faso Mboka Liya to first leave Wenge BCBG? I remember being disappointed when JB Mpiana did the "sovereign premier" call instead of shouting out Mboka Liya like they did in concerts prior to Toujour Humble being released @ 5:30 minute mark. If you listen to the generique on the album, JB Mpiana praises himself and Ficcare @ 2:28 and once more 5:17

Looks like you asked that question 3 times already lol.

Burkina Faso left Wenge BCBG back in 2000, because he was left behind in Kinshasa with Gentamicine and also Fi-Carre if I remember well. JB Mpiana had then to mix and correct some lines and add some guitare licks for TH and brought only Tutu Calugi, Alain Mpela & Titina and some ngulu's. It pissed him off because he had to get a mercedes as gift and some money for mabanga's of TH. When the Maison Mere-camp heard that, they offered some money, a car and promised him a mercedes. Which made him join Wenge Maison Mere. When JB Mpiana heard that Burkina Faso joined Maison Mere, he decided to erase that Burkina Faso-call which they recorded in 1999 to replace it for "sovereign premier" with Tutu, Titina & Mpela in the chorus. He also invited then Caien Madoka for some songs and to correct some things.

This is sad. He looks like he is crying and yet he is not. What i don't even understand is, why would a guy want to bleach their skin?

Why would everyone want to bleach their own skin, this obsession throughout Africa (yes even Arab countries has it) of bleaching/wannabe white/look white/obsessively looking white people to marry so your spns can be lighter needs to stop.
