When Tabu Ley was left behind for the trip to Belgium for the famous Table Rond-conference that were the negotiations for Congo's independence.

Also that Lisanga ya ba Nganga-album of Tabu Ley & Franco  wasn’t prepared. Just an improvisation.

He explained towards 30 min the end the reason why Franco and Tabu Ley were blocking bands like Sosoliso, Bella Bella and Empire Bakuba. Them having replaced Wendo and Grand Kallé and being scared that the youngsters would take their places, which in Michelino's opinion made the Congolese music not having developed and calling musicians of their generation a sacrificed generation.
