One of the seminal hits of the genre. Damien Dimonekene really put a lot of effort into recording; took more than a week to put the clip together.

Better image quality

Better sound


Man Manda Chante really killed it with his vocal and in the chorus, surpassing JB in the highs.

In was a big fan of Damien Dimoneke and Didier Dingalt Ping in the '90s. They were my favorite video directors. But what made Damien Dimoneke stop with recording videoclips for Congolese artists ?


Manda's contributions of vocals in the Kalayi Boeing-album was minimal compared to Alain Mpela in that album and Pleins Feux ('92), where he did a good job in the chorus of Djino and had nice vocals on Nazareth & Tcha Tcho. Somebody said to me that Manda's mic was often off or at a low sound during concerts, because JB didn't want him seeing dominating the chorus. Many people taught or still thinks that Manda Chante is a Mumbala or Muyaka, due to that vocal in Kalayi Boeing.
