The videos of the show did not do mabuma bass service bass was not too audible
that being said here is my review of the two concerts
 THE POSITIVES
-ferre proved if there was still doubts that he is one hell of a singer
-crowd reactions singing along with him in  language which is not theirs,requesting loudly songs(which if he did not happen was the secret weapon of the opposite camp,that he sang and people sat looking at him  like they were forced to be there)
-the choice of songs even if i disagree to him trying to force people into accepting OKE vibes (this goes to show somehow how over the years he neglected generiques)
-well dressed
-chorus did a good job to back him
-ivorian women are bootyful oupppsss beautiful lol
-i love the interaction between marchouse and mabuma when playing songs

THE NEGATIVES
-not bringing ilunga,he is tailormade for such shows  his height his stage antics...
-not bringing unless i did not see well hadji solo ,charly is good but he is like his mentor maitre ficarre  they have periods where they will surprise you then they will go on a long period being just steady
-blaise createur on his own,this should never ever ever ever ever ever happen again,first because his style of tenor does not suit everything he has to interpret second except his time with reddy where he was doing animation on pure sebene,his prime came with lacoste on bonioma,he is a fantastic member of a duo or trio but on his own nahhhh ,i watched on instagram and fans roasted him hard
-another negative but minor he did not allow his singers much,especially his brother guy he has one vocal "muana mama vuanda no..." with that waist dancing it was PERFECT for countries like ivory coast

all that being said i hope that ferre will build on this and go on,he's done enough of that i make an effort then i  chill over past years, he is entering probably the last decade where he will be very energetic its high  time to be relentless

As a fan of Ferre, you made some good points. My only issue is why didn't those 2 other animators Kunzardo, Doupidi came along, like you mentioned on the negatives it's bothered me a lot in the 2 concerts.

I said this before, I just don’t understand for someone who came from Wenge but doesn’t seem to understand when it comes to concerts people want to be entertained. choreography and performance is more important....ain’t nobody wants to sit there for 2hr just to hear you sing, thats boring as F. Give us a show. Kunzardo didn’t travel probably because he just returned in the group, it wouldn’t be fair to those who been there while he has been away....Ferre needs to understand that Blaise is not a showman or an entertainer like Bill, Bercy or Brigade. He needs to take another atalaku who brings that energy to the stage like he had in the days of Boite noir with Kunza and Bercy. He needs to use Dupidi more cos he has that energy and spirit. As a Ferre fan I personally would rather attend the other F than Ferre’s concert...more entertainment.

the last sentence is pretty damning for him wow
but i do agree with you that there has to be more showtime,funnily enough in the wenge "children" its the two most contested as singers robinio and fabro who have that philosophy more,  the two "front generals" heritier and ferrre,and even worse the specialist showmen bill and celeo care wayyyyyyyyyyyy more about rumba these days

Robinho has no choice but to entertain people more because he can’t sing...imagine listening to that for 1hr singing...lord of mercy!

Another notable absentee is Tselele and Maty DeGaul . Illunga is rarely on foreign tours i don't understand why.

So who made the rest of the 23 member team if they couldn't even bring two atalakus.

This really unnecessary thing to say, why you feel the need to denigrate one for other.

apparently blaise was sick as soon as they landed in abidjan but still managed to perform,they were on the verge of bringing dupidi but there was no flight in time for him to be there because there is only two flights hopefully lesson is learned not to bring one atalaku on his own anymore

To be honest he had the whole arena standing screaming TALA SIMA ZONGA MOTOOOO so let’s not underestimate how much the concert was enjoyable if you’re going to see ferre you know what’s to be expected and what’s to be enjoyed

Ferre use the impetus, move to the next stage probably another country to the East and to the North. Don't go back to Congo and wait another two months to have another concert like this one.

another negative,thinking about it,ferre should have participated in the solo dances instead of being quick to stop it to go back to rumba, you can not be such a good dancer and perform and not offer the possibility to your fans to highlight your dancing skills and makes videos of that go viral in this current world with crucial importance of social media,over the years all over africa and even before social media artists could have tours on 2/3 of the african continent based on trending dancing videos alone
and sometimes even if you have made a carreer out of the same moves it still impresses some people to see it over and over again
