EXPLANATION SONG AND CRIES:

Elok'Oyo  a song which is a remake of the popular song by Mabele Elisi which was made by Mimi Mongo, Mabele Elisi and Mimi Mongo in fact had gave plenty of music that a lot of Congolese artist has reproduced for example Boniomai by Lacoste, the crie Mwasi ya mikuse, Eboka of Werra  which in fact is made with Renée the Chef D'Orchestre after the death of Mimi Mongo and hier of Mabele Elisi (Mabele's word) and so on.
The song of Fally is very simple and repetitive and had gain a lot of success throughout all Africa like Original.
The song meaning is simple band says that what gave Fally cars, houses success and all the love and respect of people worldwide is music, when he says we are the King of Mbonda he means he is the king of music both traditional and "world" since in antiquity in Africa especially in the central and western Africa the most powerful instrument was the mbonda since it has a structure that can make the mbonda hear meters away even though it is with other instrument, the people back in the days after long days or months of work would choose a people with great music sense and would give  him the role of playing Mbonda while on this time everybody at the start of the mbonda will dance, he is basically saying that the music he made is made for making dance the whole world's village and he is the right guy to make you dance and leave you stressless.
Le 2 Juliet biso tembe na foire is a clear reference to the Congolese Fikin which in years has lost importance but in the past was the real deal if you were a proven musician only the big guys were playing there, and in fact by that tembe na foire he means that he will bring the fire back to the fikin and when he says l'autre la anginda n'elok'oyo he means that Koffi and maybe he is refererng to other artist has got rich and wealthy by simply making music.
Very simple and clean song.
This stylistic is a traditional/one leader song, where there is the whole band participating at the video but on the song it is only the leader making the song, it is a way of song that is used mostly by ex Quartier Latin members and by Koffi himself, and it is a way to show the polivalent form of the artist and to even teach the young atalakus how to handle things most of the time is the most successful song of the album and of the other atalakus, in fact comparing the datas Selfie of Koffi got 12 million against the 2.9 of Nyataquance led by Kirikou and for Fally Original had more than 24 million views against the 4 of Libre Parcours #2, if you see things is it never used by Wenge Members, which prefer give the Atalaku chance to do all the generique even though the atalaku names rarely compares between the composer for example Lobeso had only one song on Wenge (Kata Fumbwa) in featuring with Bercy Mwana, Brigade had only one in QL and surprisingly zero in Wenge and Bill Clinton had two one in Intervention Rapide and the second in Ala Queue Leu (Style Moomberg) in Wenge can happen that leaders add a little bit of them but like a gluing piece in the art like in Se Na Se or Nyataquance or Fimbu and so on.
