i think deplick's life explains the man he has become a mature and nice guy but who also learned to show some authority when it matters

Deplick is one of my favourite from that generation of MM. Did you notice how the two (Deplick and Cafe Roum) of them were received on stage at the Zenith concert when doing that Le Representant track. The crowd went crazy especially when Cafe Roum came on stage to do his vocal.

GUELOR MAVINGA NGOMA DENEWADE AKA MIGNON ABRAHAM

guelor was born on 1st of january in 1985 in kinshasa and is the son of denewade who was a former manager of ok jazz and choc stars he grew up away from this dad since he was not the son of his dad's wife,so he spent most of his first years living with uncles and aunts who all passed away quick and around 11 years old started singing and dancing in street groups
living in very difficult conditions he will fail in the class just before high school and since there was less ans less parental authority around him decides to go missing from school for a whole year singing in street groups and playing soccer
in  1999 2000 he is spotted by songwriter duc herode mandiangu and his group golden tchatcho who needs a new generation of musicians to replace the likes of flamme kapaya,jitrois,jordan,gesan sakoko,serge mabiala,celeo and co gone to bigger groups and will participate in an album with him but since  duc herode is so much abroad most of the musicians either look for other groups to remain active or go for other jobs
guelor prefers going to brazzaville where he will shortly participate in group super ocean with the likes of eric mente and biscuit des ecoliers and in the meantime he really develop his dancing side along with friends regis toms and co and they will get some exposure at an extra musica international concert where is organized a dance competition to pick "the best dancer of brazzaville"
and they will shine,especially him who wins the competition and they will catch crowd's attention with what will be not too long after known as koyimbiko
while the other dancers join werrason he will prepare to join wenge bcbg as he is spotted in brazzaville by atalaku gentamicine lisimo he is then given money to buy clothes and ticket to go back to kinshasa where he will be leaving with gentamicine for months learning the songs and giving him dances to offer to the group
he will then be officially tested in 2002 but he does not sing well that day as he is impressed to sing next to all those guys he saw on tv's and while he had failed his test he manages to get close to jb mpiana while  bodyguards are busy dealing with some fans who could not enter the already packed rehearsal hall and tells him "boss,please let me at least remain in the group as a dancer" and his determination will please jb mpiana who tells him "go and join the singers" and will task jules kibens to take him at home and make him grow as a singer and remains him abraham in reference to his first son
 two years after his arrival he is one of the first of the new members to make clip appearances in generique pelisa nguasuma and gentamicine's song lekasopo for example
this period coincides with him leaving kibens' house to rent an house with his colleagues nono fudji,djino equaliser and sometimes their friend we will later know as robinio
in 2007 he participates for the first time on a wenge bcbg album,in the song francis solution and he is on the list for the first bcbg tour after europe ban as he nears cementing a first team role but will miss out the same year on american tour due an issue with his passport
in 2009 2010 while he has become a regular first team member he is victim of people around jb reporting to him that he was dating one of his sidekicks and talking bad about him to make her his official girlfriend aswell which get jb very furious leading to nearly 11 months of suspension,in which abraham will be approached by quartier latin staff but remains loyal and  one day as he really is hit too hard with the suspension by also losing access to bcbg's main donors he goes to see  fally ipupa to expose his situation and ask if fally can do something as jb listens to him and likes him,and fally takes him to jb's house where the issue is finally sorted as jb gets proved it was all false
so to make up for his mistake jb decides to allow abraham to add a song,being the very first of that generation to be given that chance
and still very affected by what he went through he decides to release the song code moral instead of a love song like most musicians and jb also helps him in order to get longterm belgian papers as he has two kids born in europe even before himself started regularly going there
he then becomes a strong jb favorite allowed freedom to travel to europe when he wants which creates some jealousy in the group
and in early 2013 he is offered in front of the whole group opportunity to record an album which does not get all the group applauding like earlier cases of boguys and ficarre
 he will start recording album passe en or from then between kinshasa brazzaville and paris and in that period of recording he will be hit at personal level with fire in his house while he is out and luckily for him the fire does not reach the room where his children on vacation in kinshasa were living
he will have serious damage on the house and touched by the story jb offers to totally repair his house and  offers him a big land plot to avoid him being badly seen in the group
in 2016 while still waiting for the group's album where he also has a song he causes some controversy in the group,as when gone to meet a donor at a karaoke bar he is followed by other bcbg singers metro and josky
and them going on stage is reported to jb as them performing a concert on their own while its just karaoke,so as they are part of the "camp" upset about how some of the chiefs behave it will be used to show authority to that camp
and abraham who foresees humiliation decides to secretly reunite some of the reserve bcbg members mixed with his own group he rehearses with like all artists to create vocals and co before presenting to group and thanks to his lucrative private truck transport business will buy a complete set of instruments and start preparing his departure from the group while releasing two songs amour pirate and boom boom boom
while he was still pretending to be with the group in hope that things calm down and he stays at least one more year a heated phone argument with seguin will seal it and the week after he hands to the group a letter to announce not to count on him as a bcbg member until his album is out meanwhile he starts making public rehearsals with his new group 10 eme bataillon
and in july 2017 he releases generique remontada to mark his newly signed contract with david monsoh's obouo music after declining a koffi central offer

Gabriel Junior AKELEMBI MONGALA aka robinio mundibu



gabriel was born in 1983 in mbuji mayi from a congolese father and belgian mother,he grew up there until early 90's where he returns to kinshasa and lives between lemba and matete
his passion for music will start at home with his late father  who was in congolese army being a huge fan of ok jazz and groups of that era so unlike most guys of his age he listens to "music of older people" instead of groups like wenge
and luckily for him he remembers lyrics quite easily and he will start trying to sing them on his own with a guitar roger ngandu who was one of their neighboors offered him but he will be stripped of it when his dad notices it
in the late 90's he will often move to matete on holidays with other members of his family and will start rehearsing in some groups and develop now the desire to follow wenge footsteps
and from then he will become friends with the likes of fabrice mbuyulu aka fabregas,"ibrator" mbuzi and co
in 2001 he will start professional career in music with guitarist and songwriter do akongo along with the likes of nono fudji,jules "eboa lotin",julien boseko aka equaliseur,ibrator mbuzi,guelor "atshuda"...and like most of them will develop some writing skills next to their leader
but like most of them,he'll want more exposure given how their leader instead of really establishing his group keeps selling his best songs to other artists
so he returns to groups of matete and lemba to develop his art again but will have a throat problem which will affect his voice,having him to stop doing tenor role
he will be taken around 2005 by roger ngandu to join wenge bcbg  but he has his mind set on wenge maison mere were he finds the style more suitable to his new philosophy he learned in the street groups
nevertheless few months later he'll get closer to tutu caludji via the song guantanamo which he rehearses at home with tutu and atshuda
and in 2007 when tutu caludji leaves wenge bcbg he is called upon along with his friend to form the band,and there will come what will become his official musical nickname
robinho(which he will mispell robinio) coming from tutu who was a big fan of football and nicknamed him like that as to say "the next star"
he will last two years in the group and loses patience when tutu settles in europe for a long time,he will then head to maison mere test with support of papy kakol and will impress werrason who will nickname him "mundibu"(its a word used in lingala to alluded to arab people,due to how he looked)
but unlike his friend fabrice,he will take much more time to be valued as a member of the group and will have two vocals in the group's album malewa suite et fin two years later
he struggles to go higher up the hierarchy of singers in concerts but will take time to learn a lot  and in 2013 as he sees he still is too overlooked decides to try his luck as a solo artist and will release a powerful generique mbonzi mbonzi where he shows a werrason lookalike handing him a diploma as to say he's learned his lessons well and graduated aswell as a rumba vantard
both get a decent reception but he is not yet taken seriously he plans to release album "tout est bien" (all is good) in various chapters like some movies but seeing that people still did not really really know him let alone take him seriously he changed his mind and started dropping singles
starting two generiques ye yo ok and etirette  which will bring him a bigger success than previous one but still does not really establish him as a promising artist let alone a star,he will get approached in that period by fally ipupa to join his label along with his fabregas,but he declines as people around him tell him it will make him look like a weak artist if he is produced by another artist(while fabregas and fally fallout leading to creation of label wanted records and fally saying on tv's he had two young guys he wanted to push but one is an hypocrite so he feels like put project on hold)
in 2016 he gets closer again to fally ipupa but still does not sign a contract for f victeam but will finally get the opportunity to get the long awaited recognition with his two generiques 4 lettres and tsha nanu boye
its a thunderous and unexpected sucess,robinio's generiques become the most popular in kin's bars and among the rare congolese songs to make it in nightclubs who are now playing far more foreign music than congolese one
he gets a koffi central offer but also declines and prefers working with his own money and donors/friends unfortunately he loses his father who had been suffering heart condition for decades
and that death will be followed with a lot of polemic with people pulling theories like he sacrificed his father to become even bigger than what he is starting to be,he has been influenced by his new "mentor" fally ipupa to sacrifice his dad like himself fally did according to those people
very affected by this,he somehow disappears from media and even one day ponders retiring from music and moving to belgium with his mother but he is boosted by his musicians to keep going
and on the musical field,success means people now pay more attention to his music and like all stars there will be a of the fans who will try to find something negative in order to "belittle" his sucess
in his case,he will be labelled like a guy who owes his career to generiques,some people sarcastically even naming him "wazekwa number 2"
and this will give him motivation to start working on a proper album with many rumbas and also generiques to prove he can do both very well
he will name his album "noir et blanc"(black and white) alluding to his origins and his hidden talent people are yet to discover
he was meant to start studio sessions for rumbas in june of 2017 in paris where he was meant to be fally's guest but since the concert was cancelled went to get his visa cancelled
but he plans to record in europe in the future months because for him most of the classic albums were done in europe studios so he wants to taste it aswell and hopefully his album being  a new classic

NELSON NONO FUDJI KIKARA AKA NONO FUDJI R9


Nono was born in 1978 in kinshasa but started music  when sent to boarding school outside of kinshasa.In fact his real first contact with music will be at boarding school in moanda along with the likes of fally ipupa,marc iseboya and co in 1991
 one year later he'll move to study in his region of bandundu for another two years  then when he returns to kinshasa he starts singing at church and later in street groups of matete like the group rue de son where he will be singing first like his role model reddy amisi while trying to emulate stage "leadership" of jb mpiana
 in this group he'll become strong friend with jules aka eboa lotin and some other guys who did not have opportunity to make it a higher level
 in 1997 he'll make a step closer to professional music while he is about to start university as he is picked to sing along with then europe based felix wazekwa for his first concert in kinshasa but his parents will be against him become a full time musician threatening to kick him out of home so he'll restart his last high school year as he failed on purpose to show his choice was made  and start university
In 2000 guitarist and songwriter do akongo leaves quartier latin and decides to form a band and nono will be one of the guys picked along with his friend "eboa",ibrator and many other guys who later made it at higher level and will learn to play guitar and write a bit,he will for example be the guy who writes over half of singer soleil wanga's vocals in quartier latin with that particular style which they will have created from a mix of several singers
in 2002 he will sing on a couple of songs of a project by do akongo over the political negotiations of the country for presidence and vice presidence roles and there he catchs eye of two of do akongo's song customers koffi olomide and werrason who will try to recruit him and he is even taken to a la zamba test but he has his heart set on another move in fact he wants to join the rivals of bcbg and sing alongside his second role model and he will be taken for tests by a friend who was a member of the bcbg fan club of matete,but he will be so impressed when he enters the rehearsal hall and sees jb  that he'll feell uncomfortable and want to throw up and will be denied access to toilet by bodyguards who think he'll go there to curse people so that his test his succesful so he leaves and come back few minutes after and impresses jb so much that the other guys meant to be tested after him are not even tested
but "unfortunately" for him his leader jb preferring to present his new musicians when he thinks they are starting to be polished his friend eboa will be presented  earlier by the rivals of maison mere which will lead to a friendly beef between them about who copied each other's style while both knew they were working on it together way before joining big groups
5 years later he will reach the number of years jb liked to have with young new musicians before making them potential first team members and starting to make more and more appearances and will participate on album kipe ya yo and quel est ton probleme which boosts his popularity abroad and he is so requested by fans that he makes the list for bcbg's official return to europe after the 5 years of ban
two years later he gets the opportunity to release his first song ever mombamba in album soyons serieux which gets a really good reception and in the meantime nono cements his position of a first team singer and he will get another approach from quartier latin which he declines politely and in 2013 he becomes a truely important member of the group as he is given responsability along with gentamicine to help new members settle and teach them the songs
and he gets another opportunity to add a song in the yet to be released album balle de match
at personal level he tries to convince his parents to stop selling food in streets and being a cleaner at one of kin's universities but they refuse so he offers his house he could buy with the money he got from tours to them
in 2015 during a group reunion  he'll be offered opportunity to  release a solo album but he declines explaining that even though he has songs he needs to cement his reputation more with at very least two three songs interpreted by him  becoming hits before even thinking about a project of several songs
at the same time he will be victim of a guy who was meant to sell him a big land plot for around 30K dollars and who runned away with that money and will be offered support by his leader with 10k to pay to add to 5 of his own to pay the first part of a similar land plot and will be given opportunity to be probably the first guy of his generation to lead 4 songs on a group album,the song of seguin,his own,the songs of jeremie kitubu and patou solo
in 2016 2017 he will become so important to the group that some members suggest him as a potential chef d'orchestre should jb strip seguin of that role and is offered possibility to go to europe and do some legal things to get europe papers easily but declines fearing it will cause jealousy in the group like in the case of his best friend abraham
