The drama around socoda will never stop. If it was in Europe they would arrest Nyoka Longo a long time ago for stealing 2,4 millions dollars and blacklist/boycott all his music, because to things he do. However, I dont believe that Adricha would be fair if he was in Nyoka Longo's place as head of Socoda. I think that he would be worser.

It's really sad to hear that Manda Chante and Sam Tshintu get more money from Socoda than Madilu and Tabu Ley while nobody plays Manda Chante's music nor that of Sam Tshintu at the same time every party plays atleast one song of Madilu (If it's not Si je savais ca, its always just un peu d'amour or magalie and ya jean) and Tabu Ley is still often played on the radio, especially on sunday. I really lost the respect I had for Sam Tshintu. Still dont get it why Manda is alot respected in the music-world, he doesn't do anything just making interviews and doing matolo.

What is Socoda? Is that mechanical royalties from previous album sales and streams? If so, that means the singers from bands are getting paid for songs credited to them, right?

For example, Fally can claim payments from his songs in Quartier Latin (Eternellement, Ko-Ko-Ko, ect). Correct?

Socoda is a Congolese  association collecting payments of artists’ rights and distributing the rights to the songwriters, composers and music publishers.

Singers of bands dont get paid, because the majority isn't affiliated. Those who are affiliated are mostly bandleaders and when the day of payment arrives. People working at Socoda just check the faces and pay them based on the way they like the artists. If you often attack them on television you will receive peannuts or and sometimes alot in order to let them shut your mounth, like they did with Reddy Amisi who used to come every week on the television to complain that they weren't writing on the letter for which songs/album they were getting money like SACEM and SABAM and when Verckys came to replace Blaise Bula, he wasn't complaining anymore while it was still the same system. Sometimes it also happen that they give chicken, oil, makayabu and bags with fufu to artists lol

Fally isn't a member of Socoda. If you would be, I would doubt that he would receive it, because at SACEM Koffi is credited as songwriter of all his songs (despite that they wrote something different on the credits those groupalbums). A few years ago, Actu de Net made a video about bandleaders (Koffi Olomidé and JB Mpiana) crediting all songs of group-album to their names which created a scandal. But Werrason the only one to not do that, maybe it had something to do with the contract he had with JPS, where he signed that he gave all his rights of his albums recorded at the label JPS Production to Jean Pierre Saah. One of the reasons why Serge Muloso (original songwriter of Vita-Imana) couldn't get the rights for the song Vita Imana after suing Ferre and writing letters to SACEM.

because socoda ever since it exists has always had more money for those who are close to the "right camp"
imagine in 2015 or something robinio went and received like 8 times the money late ma paulina of pepe kalle received just  because he was pire petit of one of the admins thats why reddy was always angry with the fact they do not provide receipts to justify that one receives 200 the other
and this was when he only had his first generique with brandon not even the ye yo to tsha nanu boye era

About the chicken and the bags of fufu it reminded when Shaka Kongo told Papy Mboma he left either Socoda because the late Verckys did not give me any chicken lol
