No need. JB lost the glory by getting into a long term marriage to kibense, chai, JDL, Rio and Segiun....no other reason archos. Lets face it, the team which could have taken jb to some positive level was the team of didi kalombo, Kilimanjaro and co. Jb was at a level of competition with werrason which was too volatile and risky but he opted to remain with liabilities for a long time and werrason bypassed him since he knew the best team. Up to this day, jb has been sleeping. I do not know why.

I am talking of A Golden orportunity not golden orpotunities. The golden oportunity was when he missed the chance of creating a better and competitive team after bercy.

yes i understand your point,and agreebut i wa talking about something completely different,many things which happened behind the scenes with jb himself,not bcbg and not necessarily in relation to his rivalry with werra

-the first big mistake jb mpiana did,happens from 1999 to the mid 2000's as he refuses being a candidate to several awards(particularly kora)
 he gives all his focus on kinshasa and the clan wenge rivalry but seriously neflects his image at international level,whereas albums liue titanic,th or even internet are well appreciated abroad
-still about his international career, he is contacted by several west african producers for a remix album of feux de l'amour with shorter songs and all those restrictions of "world music" and guaranteed good promotion
he starts recording it with a producer from benin but then his staff(damien dimonekene,bruno matadi and co) tell him to  ask crazy money from the producer and also have as a condition thathe would bring to america the whole group including every reserve singer so the producer abandons
- in 2001 after releasing internet,he is proposed by david monsoh working in a second solo album (which ends up being named chemin de fer) featuring some african starsaswell as a complete african tour and a much organized staff with spokesmen,managers,fashion designers... ,but refuses that proposition because of his staff which does not accept "losing" jb to other managers and who convince jb that he would be forced to dump his congolese career which was not the case but who made jb refuse
-one year later, he is announced in palais des congrès,one of the biggest and prestigious halls of paris,posters spread in paris streets,intensive promotion made in drc and france as he is set to become the first ever congolese artist to perform there,but once again the bad influence of his staff strikes,as two weeks before that concert they influence him to ask for 6 times the amount they agreed with producer and at the end of the day producer abandons because its too much money
-in the same year he is approached by producer jps,(as he is in serious conflict with his own producer simon) with the promise of winning kora awards and the possibility once again of recording solo albums and several advantages who could have boosted his popularity abroad but he prefers waiting until the end of his contract with simon instead of ceasing contract and signing with jps
also the fact,his rival werrason is there makes him refuse whereas jps saw in it possibilty of killing competition with other producers by having  the two biggest stars under his wings
-in 2005 while serving his europe ban he is proposed through angolan friends,contracts for southern america for festivals but he fears taking the gamble because  he des not want to play in front of extremely small crowds as he is unsrure there are enough congolese/african people there
-three years later same situation,this time in japan
i-in 2011 a big african event is planned at stade de france in paris and jb mpiana is the first congolese artist contacted but he thinks the project is not serious because the guy who contacted him was congolese and he was skeptical with congolese producers as he had many problems with some of them,but does not understand that guy is actually only a member of a whole organization
he then refuses that contract and prefers signing a contract for angola,werrason,fally ipupa and jessy matador who are contacted later accept

In this regard, I am forced to believe that JB Mpiana should thank Werrason and May be Makaba for his popularity, he couldn't have propelled Wenge to the level it used to be if he was a sole leader, unlike Mpiana, Werra is visionary and aggressive.

Thanking makaba and werra for his popularity is a bit of a overstatement i think,if you notice well all three had different attributes,makaba was the artistic mind,werra the strategic,jb was the image of the group and a good manager in terms of human relationships
you combine all three you have a perfect artist
