Recorded with only 3 singers Marie Paul, Manda Chante & Depitsho (JDT & Rento Vena being in Europe). During this era Marie Paul predicted Wenge 4x4's split. The album was recorded in South Africa and arranged by Maïka Munan. Marie Paul had finally the chance to react to JB Mpiana's "Le Monde est Mechante" (Remix of Kin E Bouge), after a long ban of Kongolo Mobutu. Most songs of this album were meant to be released in 1993 to counter Wenge 4x4's Kalayi Boeing. The album was well received with Manda Chante's Ibrahim  being a huge succes and him being voted as best singer of the year. The Atalaku-departement was at that time juged as weak and would lead to the recruitment of Bizima Kondos & Patou Bofosa to help Doukoure "Papa Douk". Wenge El Paris would with the succes of this album give an memorable performance at Stade de 20 mai and l'Esplanade de Palais du Peuple, which was overcrowded. After this album problems in the band restarted, because of Marie Paul who wanted to have the fully control of the band. JDT who came from Europe, decided to leave the band and join Maison Mere,  after a long war with his ex'best friend Depitsho, who was then the Chef d'Orchestre. Then Depitsho left, after long years of conflicts with Marie Paul. He almost followed JDT in Maison Mere, but decided to join Quartier Latin, after being contacted by Koffi Olomide. Manda Chante also almost left the band. Marie Paul offered him to join his brother Werrason in Maison Mere, but he refused.

Excellent album, but they could've gotten someone other than Deptisho jeez. He was on brotherly terms with Kester, who made his grand return to Kin... Kester would've gladly lent Victoria singers to marie Paul

lol, you reminded me of Marie Paul's "erm, obviously they were going to split" recaction on camera just after the Wenge 4x4 split happened.
(2:05-)

"Après tout, j'ai dit tout le monde doit partir" ;D
I don't think he anticipated how JB and Werra would become superstars with the way he was calling for a split months before. He thought they were going to become the usual diminished popularity offshoots

Amost forgot that the official creator of Coupé decale, Douk Saga, got his name from atalakou Stephane Doukoure.
