this gotta be one of his most relaxed and chill interviews ever since his "change"
in short he says,he always had passion for music since he was quite young and his favourite singer was kester emeneya,and one day in class they were meant to sing a specific type of song their teacher requested but he sang kester's afimiko instead and the teacher was so impressed that he went out to call other people,at some point in his time in kinshasa before going (back) to europe he was classmates with alain makaba and he says in their generation(those born in 60's) jb was the leader and many of them guys of the same ages looked up to him the way papa wemba became the model of the previous generation so he was also trying to be like jb
when he went back to europe he had to complete military service then since he loved it went into army and only retired when he was about to be sent with french army to  baghdad which his mother was strongly against because she did not want his children to kill people or to be killed so he stepped down from army and prior to that made one of his first steps to being a full time musician as marie paul was stuck in hospital and his friend cesar loboko who was in el paris invited him and they did not know how to cover for marie paul's absence and cesar told ricoco "give this guy a chance he is a singer" and ricoco laughed at him and said "you want to transform wenge into army or what" but he still sang and impressed(in all honesty  he nailed that marie paul/kester style back then)
and one day wenge 4X4 returned to kin too early after an african and european tour and it went so well with gifts,cars and so on that they forgot about a contract in america so the producer who wanted to still honour somehow the deal called aime buanga and he went to america with him jf,jdl and some other guys and at first concerts people did not know its not the real wenge 4X4 but once they arrived in canada there was a good congolese community and the guys knew jb and co so they knew it certainly was not 4X4
few years after he released his album which had great success in africa and was given a shout out in loi by koffi olomide and he recalls that back then he was the star of his producer jimmy houetinou before awilo signed later on and koffi invited him to a couple of concerts and he sang and had dance battle with bouro and koffi convinced him to join quartier latin
and during his early days in the group people were curious to see him because  they heard a guy from the west indies joined quartier latin(his mother is from west indies which is why he was born french) and he said he enjoyed back then his time in the group and talks about a scene when he had pimples all over his body and showed it to koffi and koffi laughed and said this is a normal disease for us love addicts(both of them had a crazy number of sidekicks)
and he started seeing strange things from koffi as time went on and he gives example of bercy with one of his colleagues who came to rehearsal before bercy with two girls and koffi like them and ended up sleeping with them and both died in a matter of days
or during the concert when he was doing his solo dance(which is removed on the tape like depitcho's) crowd was very excited since a lot of friends and family was there and when he was dancing out of excitement  koffi pushed him  into crowd and  the crowd lifted him with their hands the way we see sometimes in rock for example and when security   made sure he went back on stage koffi went  and kissed him on his lips which he found very strange
and he says the music industry is a world of domination everybody wants to be as powerful as he cant and thats why they are easily lured into dark things,for example how before big concerts the likes of jb werra koffi and co have to have a lot of sex the same day with different women to complete their spiritual "duties" and also he regrets that its a world where there is too much hypocricy and he gives example of suzuki who once went hard on koffi and claimed koffi killed dancers and now he says opposite thing and praises koffi and also he does not like the mentality leaders have about musicians they bring to europe,because they bring them in europe for a good reason which is that they have talent so he does not understand that system which is that you have to worship like a god your ex leader because he took you to europe because if you were crap you would not make the list so its not like he is doing you a big favor and he adds that the rare artists who are not hypocrites are badly seen and gives example of jordan kusa who speaks with no filter and people give him hate because they are used to those who'd prefer to lie to remain politically correct and gain support from fans of ex boss because God recommends us to be sincere,honest and to hurt people with truth rather than slowly killing them with being fake to them not to frustrate them

JF needs to learn to talk like this in all his interviews so that people will take his claims more seriously. What he said about Suzuki is soooo true he flip flops too much with koffi. Haha man I'd love to see that bercy footage

JF Ifonge's dancing part was apparently the best dance act of the concert. But he erased that part, because of the way he attacked Koffi with Depitsho in that VHS when they left. He came just after Mustapha. You will notice that there is a part missing before Mamale arrives. People who were living in Kinshasa were lucky to see that bercy footage, because it was broadcasted live on RTNC from the start until the end. There were alot of parts missing like when Roga Roga came, or the part with Meiway, African Kings with Passi, Koffi inviting Felix Manuaku, when he sung Apolosto Ya Bolingo on his acoustic guitar, Koffi singing with Nayanka Bell "Je t'aime non plus" or those rare backstage footage who were broadcasted once on MCM Africa. It would have been better if MCM Africa released the concert in 2 parts (vol.1 & 2). I remember people claiming that Koffi erased many parts because of his concert at Bercy being one of the worsts concerts ever. Not knowing that MCM Africa bought all those rights to release that VHS, wanting a 90min VHS to broadcast it every week on their channel.

I would like to see JF's dancing part at Bercy. So Koffi had sex with two women and they died couple days later?? According to JF.
