I hope that someone would re-upload those rare Viva La Musica, Victoria Eleison, Isifi Melodia and Dr Nico's of Meni Massamba's channel back on youtube. They/We need to create a groupp of people who still have old VHS's of the 70's, 80's, 90's and early 2000 and upload them on YouTube and reupload if a channel gots deleted.

This was a great concert. Defao knew how to make a great show for everyone to enjoy. I don't know how this band could not last longer but music business can be nasty.

I was in attendance at this concert by pure luck while on vacation with family. Funniest concert I've ever been to. Man, Defao was such a great entertainer.

He was king in Cote d'Ivoire at the time, along with Koffi, Meiway, & Extra Musica. That's all you would hear on Radio Nostalgie

It's amazes me how Montana sang so much better when he was in Big Stars compared to QL. He sang well in QL, but in here you can clearly see why he was president of Big Stars and Defao's favorite.

Why did Montana leave Defao for QL?

Defao fired the whole band in switserland with some musicians going back to the UK others to the USA and some to Canada, since that they still the visa's in their pocket. With Montana going to Paris, signing a contractdeal with JPS Production and recording a solo album. Then during the recording-sessions he finally Koffi's offer to join Quartier Latin after being offered many times since 1992. In an interview he revealed that back in 1999 they were broke and stuck in Cameroun, since that the concert-promoter ran away with the money and Defao went to Paris for the mixing of Guerre de 100 Ans. Than Koffi Olomide arrived for some concerts and he met Montana with him offering to join Quartier Latin and giving him a huge amount of money with Montana faking him to accept the offer. But he used than the money to save the band by buying tickets for the whole band and they went then to another african country where they had concerts.
