Summary of the interview. He explains how he joined Maison Mere after being approached by Ferre and that for some time he had become a fan of Werrason even before the dislocation of Wenge 4*4 Tout Terrain. He also says the first day he was due for tests at la zamba, he didnt manage to do the test for some reason. So Ferre approached Igwee on the 2nd day after he saw that the person he had brought to join the group was not being given a chance to do the tests. And that when Ferre was introducing him (Kabose) to Nsone he (Nsone) mistook him for Montana Kamenga. He says he was then able to do the test on the same day as Zulema who would later join BCBG. He goes on to say Ferre was really worried that Kabose may not really impress the La Zamba parliamentarians, lol (the la zamba faithful audience who usually have a huge say as to who joins the movement). But to the surprise of everyone including himself he impressed during the test when he sang the song "Koffi Ayina". But that after that impressive test the worry about were he would fit into the Maison Mere first line up crept in since that almost every position in the line up had equally very good musicians such as JDT, Baby Ndombe, Ferre, Heritier, Adjani and Mabiala etc. So he says after the test Ferre advised him to buy a walkman and get all the three albums of Maison Mere at the time so that he could perfect his knowledge of the songs.

He also explains how Eboa Lotin joined the group. He says since Werrason was buying sometimes songs from Do Akongo. He says Do Akongo would write songs and play the guitar and basically put the melody to the songs by having Eboa Lotin sing in the songs before sending them to Werrason and that Eboa would deliver the cassettes to Werrason. So at some point Werrason asked Do Akongo to say who is the guy who sings in the cassettes you send to me and Do Akongo explained that Eboa the one who delivers the cassettes is the one who used to do the singing for him. He says thats how Eboa was asked to join the group. And that point during repetitions they would put Eboa to Compete with Ferre on some songs. He says it is at this point that he personally saw problems coming because that Eboa was sort of being sent to do that in order to frustrate Ferre.

He goes on to say they were on tour i think (UK) if i heard correctly, and it is during this time that he heard (he didn't witness it) but the story was that Ferre and Nsone got into a disagreement were Nsone slapped Ferre and Ferre was found crying in the toilet by Bill Clinton, so Bill Clinton appraoched Nsone to find out why he had slapped Ferre but that he couldnt get a clear explanation. And it seems that disagreement was the last straw and that is how Les Marquis was officially born while the rest of the group went back to Kin. He goes on to disclose how Nsone was clearly sad during the flight with the fact that Ferre and Co had officially left, and that he went to encourage him not to feel down.

He also talks about Heritier and how anyone who has passed through MM always has something bad to say about Heritier when in MM but that he didnt want to criticise Heritier because it happens that in every group there is that one guy who is close to the boss who is used to do the dirty work for the boss. He also talks about the Aimelia and Heritier affaire which i think Ndeko @Archos has written about in some posts sometime back. He also talks about how he left the group after being told that he was too old for the group and that he was not needed anymore.

He ends by talking about his upcoming group album with how many titles? (My french is still pretty bad but am teaching myself, any help will be appreciated ba ndeko. Lol). Ado then asks him why is it that songs by musicians nowadays have "explicit" lyrics. Kabose answers to say it just the interpretation of people which makes the songs to seem explicit. He gives an example of how people want to relate his recent generique "buka mbeto" to insults or excplicit lyrics. Lol

Just watched this last night...good interview, it’s funny how Ferre fought hard for him to join MM and to stay but this is the same person who often throws shades towards Ferre for some reasons. The Amelia and Heritier thing lol...”natoki nase ya mapeka”. It shows how big headed and dominant Heritier became once Ferre and co left to create les Marquis.

i am sure  he rewarded that much heritier over how wata was the most supportive when he was literally crying at times, wata kept telling him vieux as long as i am here you have nothing to worry about and you'll see and he went to get songs from ibrator vigas and co,tried to convince both werra and baby so that baby returns and gives a bit of strength to the team and also of course heritier told him he'd cover the spiritual side  for the 4 departed chiefs(bill jdt baby ferre) there  started his craziness lol 22 years old and you want to be the number 2 of maison mere and you get it,how wont you be big headed he took great benefit from how distraught werra was,it was kinda the same with cindy later,the leader in a position of weakness and boom somebody pops up and becomes untouchable
kabose throws shade at ferre to try to please fally who he sees in private much easier than ferre who he has not seen for ages other than that they have zero problem i guess he does it also to get ferre's attention

Was it by design though that despite the influence Heritier had in MM he never rose to those bigger administrative roles such Chef de Repetition?

he always said he does not need those roles because technically he was bigger than all those roles combined with werra giving him big responsabilities werra was calling him vice president of the group

It's an interesting interview, was surprised to learn how Ferre was instrumental in his recruitment and am glad he had a warning to not only Werra about pitting singers against one another, Werra was pitting Ferre against the new Eboa Lotin just like Koffi pitted Fally against Ferre causing unnecessary rivalry that saw the disintegration of Quartier Latin. His remarks on Heritier where interesting hope Heritier follows.
