Musicians like lying. So why did Seniora Patra de Uomo say that it was his idea to have the introduction of But na Fillet like that?  By the way is Patra De Uomo related to Stella Uomo of Viva la Musica?

No, they aren't related. It's just that in the 80s many youngsters and musicians were adding Italian brandnames like Lino of Lino de Pepito and Uomo to their name and/or naming their streetbands like that. Ben Nyamambo's famous clothing shop in Kinshasa was called Scarpa Uomo. Later on from the late 80s when Japanese brands started to take over in the sape-world, musicians and youngster started to add names like Miyake to their names from Issey Miyake

I see. So what was the issue of the fall out between King Kester and Mambo de Panama for Mambo to influence the departure of some musicians before Zenith?

Ado is annoying. He never wants to talk about "Mboka Mboka".

I really like this album, more than "Longue Histoire". I think it's better, at least as good.

The only bad thing about it is those loonnggg sebens.

I liked those long sebens, dancing on stop-non on the dancing floors.

Ado Yuhe's a real faux journalist. He wanted to skip the events of Stade des Martyrs and Palais du Peuple, who were one of Emeneya's biggest shows in his career. Guy Kimvula was part of King Boys, he could ask him, how they prepared the event and how it was a succes. Because back at that time, they were calling Emeneya crazy for planning a concert at Stade des Martyrs. Guy Kimvula saw that Ado was wrong and quickly talked about, but didn't go in the details which is sad. Yes, Longue Histoire was an album that had a huge succes in Kinshasa, but Victoria Eleison was at that moment for a long months absent in Kinshasa (being blocked in Kenya before that Emeneya came) and came laters months after that, giving their first concert when they came from Eastern Africa (Kenya, Tanzania, Zambia and a concert Lubumbashi) at Cinemax which was a huge mpiaka before reacting strongly at a packed YMCA.

According to Emeneya himself it was about the money he made from the VHS "Ba Nganga na bango bakufi" which had Mbuta Likasu as guest star, wanting then to produce Guy Moller and co to make more and went to manipulate them to leave, after that Emeneya decided to cancel his show at La Madeleine in Brussels and the Europe-tour that had to follow.

But according guys like Guy Moller, Anthony Sampaio, Sweet Elesse, Eric Masudi, Zoe Bella and Ade Lokela (who also left along with Zozo Malaba "rip" but changed both their mind on the last minute), it wasn't Mambo de Panama who influenced them leave. They left because they were fed up for the way they they suffered and for the third time seeing a Europe-tour being cancelled, especially Guy Moller & Zoe Bella who came from the US (I explained the story how they were abandoned by Emeneya in New York and slept for 1 or 2 days in the streets with Mbuta Bass) and rejoined in Kenya after being promised by Emeneya that he would pay their tickets back which never happened. So when they came back in Kinshasa after spending 8 months abroad they wanted to stay at Grand Hotel de Kinshasa like the way Wenge BCBG, Quartier Latin, Wenge Maison Mere and Nouvelle Ecriture were doing after the long Europe-tours, but Emeneya's staff refused, which frustrated them.Then after performing in Mbanza Kongo (Angola), they left one by one when Emeneya spent months long in Europe to finish the Longue Histoire-clips, officialy signed the Zenith-contract and other businesses he had. Guy Moller being the first one to leave and followed by Zoe Bella and the rest.
