I taught Mukulu was a nickname that was made to sound like Papa Wemba's Bokul. Jb,Werra and the rest of Wenge are lucky that they were allowed to go back to Europe after the fakes visas scandal. And what was the conflict with Mobutu's son?

Mukulu comes from Tshiluba language it can mean Elder(used mostly in churches) as a mark of respect...comes from same family as Mukulumpa(big,as in big brotheror big man)

Conflict with Sadam, I heard it was between him and JB over a woman...Sadam even went as far as calling Aime Bwanga back in Kinshasa to take the name Wenge away from them.....but I also heard that there was a song in that album dedicated to someone Sadam was in conflict with! Lol

Archos I need some clarification if u could provide it

The Songs,Moni La Rose and Daddy Bitodi

I always thought Moni La Rose(formely Dodo La Rose) was a blaise Bula song..but in an interview with Nathy Lokole he says it's Masela's song

Same with Daddy Bitodi...Credited as JB's but after their European tours, at their Maman Angebi concert, the presentator(forgot his name) asked JB; whats the name of the second song you guys gonna sing....He replies: Amitié Daddy(daddy Bitodi) of Mandundila(Djolina)

Question: How can you be listed as the composer of a song but yet you say it's other group member's song?

Thanks for that info, it must of been scary for JB because Sadam could of had him killed.

exactly the conflict was a about a beautiful woman of mixed race  who prefered jb to saddam despite saddam's money and power,saddam wanted to punish him harder but other brothers like nzanga defended jb,so the only remaining way of punishing him was blocking their album until that woman accepts to leave jb(which happened as that woman who gave him a children  went with saddam and amida came in)

  because the songs were reworked  the original songs were from blaise and djolina but when it was studio time,jb and masela gave the songs a different shape

That's how we say it in my Zambian language too,''mukulu'' meaning he's older or ''umukulu.''

while on europe tour in early 1998, they record group album titanic where jb mpiana is the only one to release two songs,one is a song with heavy traditional influence of the main ethnic groups of the country which had switched from the name of zaire to the name of RDC(DRC in english), all perfectly represented by bcbg members
the second song is omba,voted as song of the year on par with werrason's chantal
their first album is a great success and leads to several tours in africa,europe and america
one year after,jb and wenge bcbg are the first of 4th generation to perform at zenith and olympia,they also perform at stade de martyrs after european tour,which jb becoming officially the only band leader with departures of alain makaba and blaise bula
all three concerts are a huge success and jb's popularity keeps growing even more,especially with his rivalry with his friend werrason in the other big wenge,maison mere
before jb records his second solo album, he releases single y'a pas match with remixes of generique ndombolo and song papito,to introduce his new team of wenge bcbg(gentamicine,chai ngenge,sunda bass...i wont say some other names lol)
few months after, in june of 2000 jb mpiana releases second solo album TH(toujours humble) and like first solo album is a great success and earns him several awards like once again singer of the year,artist of the year,star of the year on par with his friend but rival werrason,song of the year... in total 11 trophies in same year aswell as tours in africa and europe
in november,he gets a first proposal of concert at bercy in france but prefers going to equatorial guinea for a bigger contract
in 2001,its time for a second group album internet but meanwhile jb announces another solo album chemin de fer and will finally add songs which were destined to that album to the group album internet(jeannette,bea zodeguem and sans te toucher)
he gets singer of the year award,best song and star of the year on par with werrason once again
in the same year he also becomes the third congolese after koffi olomidé and werrason to perform at bercy,in september
after a succesful europe tour, jb mpiana and bcbg return to kinshasa and perform in december for the second time at stade des martyrs,in front of an insane crowd arguably the biggest ever there(on par with werra's martyrs two years later)
in 2002 he goes again on europe and american tour and announces group album anti terroriste(anti-terro) and gets another star of the year award on par with werrason
one year after when in europe starting the recording of anti terro with his reserve group PPU jb mpiana has to rush back to kinshasa as he highly under threat of be caught for ngulu affair( human traffic) and from then start serving a 5 year ban in europe
anti terro is finally released in august of 2004
one year later,jb mpiana and werrason have arguably the longest concert in congolese music for exactly 17hours and 48 minutes at fikin,and concert was even stopped because of gun shots otherwise it could have lasted longer
in 2006,jb and bcbg record album kipe ya yo between kinshasa and united kingdom and has a concert in paris has after long negotiation he is allowed for just one concert
 one year later in december,jb and bcbg release "maxi single" quel est ton probleme with songs like zadio and liberez instantly catching attention of fans
 thanks to that maxi single,jb gets contracts for some concerts in europe and america and announce in 2009 future album soyons sérieux
that album is recorded until the end of 2010 between kinshasa and paris and is fully ready and packed in december 2010 but producer david monsoh chooses to release it in february of 2011 close to valentines day
 one year after,j in june 2012 jb and his group start balle de match,which goes from 3 songs initially,to 8 later,then to 12,Then to 15 and then to 30 and is in his last stages
at solo level,jb mpiana is yet to release long awaited chemin de fer which he absolutely wants to record from first to last second in europe
