How is it possible ? He made an interview with Mbuta Likasu a few months ago and forced people to donate for his fellow choreographer Kinsekwa burial.



I hope that its not true

Mawa trop. Rest in Peace.


He would have liked to see images of him dancing for late Abeti Masikini & TP OK Jazz.

I felt like Lambert wasn't really concentrated when doing his interview with Mbuta Likasu. Because I remember him doing an interview years ago with I think a girl working for Cleboa or another youtube-channel where Lambert was really calm and didn't praise himself alot. Explaining in  all details  how he started as kid with Chem-Chem Yetu. His time as dancer in nightclubs, the work he did with Kinsekwa when dancing for Abeti Masikini. His friendship with King Kester Emeneya when being in Viva la Musica. His time in TP OK Jazz and the way he used to give late Luambo and Simaro massagas, explaining that decenia wearing heavy guitars killed their back. Also how he left along with other dancers after Luambo's death because of TP OK Jazz being broke and him collaborating with multiple artists in the early/mid- 90s.





Many people dont know that Lambio Lambio actually made the choreography is the dancers and singers in Koffi Olomidé's videoclip Loi. Koffi Olomidé said it once in an interview he did with Papy Mboma before visiting Lambio at his anniversairy for 40 years of music-career. If I remember well he was credited along with late Kinsekwa in the credits of Loi-Clips. Lambio also made the choreography for the singers and dancers of Wenge BCBG's Zenith 1999 Intro.







Lambert was important Reddy's tour in Zaire when he came in 1995, also for the dancers he recruited for Nouvelle Ecriture in 1996 called "Ba Petites Chance Eloko Pamba" (most being those who already danced for Reddy in 1995). When being left behind by Papa Wemba for Zenith 1999, he created in Kinshasa the fioti fioti which revolutioned the Congolese music-scene and from then other bands also wanting to recruit dancers of the age 15,16,17 & 18. The shows of Zenith 2000 & Olympia 2000 made Lambio Lambio being respected by everybody also winning a special award of ACMCO. In the same period he also became important for TV to hype Papa Wemba and Nouvelle Ecriture up and mobilizing people for big events. Because his important contributions behind the scenes for Nouvelle Ecriture and also being one of the key figures to hold the band together after Bendo, Pompom Miyake and Ramazani's departure, Papa Wemba gave him the title of president of Nouvelle Ecriture. In 2001, he created another group of dancers called "Ba Nion-Nion" who performed along with the Fioti-Fioti's at Bercy. In 2003 he was often linked to a departure towards Wenge Maison Mère, but it didn't happen. In 2005 Lambio left after getting fired from his function as president, he started his own band/group called Vidjana and collaborating with other bands at the same time.

By sometimes collaborating with other bandleaders, side business and also by doing some matolo.  Many artists used to use Lambio and Manda Chante for matolo. Because they knew that with Lambio or Manda they would get easy acces to the office or house of politicians and businessmen to get money. Years ago there was a time that journalists like Vincent Tshiluizi and Jazz Kahvulu used to critize Mamie for inviting Lambio almost every week in her show to give shout-outs instead of real musicians. In reality its sad how artists are forced to make from matolo a living while with the big work they have done in our country they need to be millionaires.
