SERGE KEZIPAME OMOTI AKA DJINO EQUALIZER KAPOREDJI

Serge was born in 1978 in lubumbashi and grew up in kinshasa in the area of lemba where he started music at church at 8
 around 14 years he will start combining soccer martial arts and music in his spare times,starting to work in street groups of his area with a makeshift guitar to learn his trade
then in 1993 he'll be invited by his classmate fally ipupa to join new city which then had the likes of sankara,blaise element,flamme kapaya,chikito...so he rehearses with them a couple of times but he is sent to boarding school in lubumbashi straight after those holidays
there he'll start having some success in the school groups singing songs of his two role models papa wemba and jb mpiana
in 1998 he'll return to kinshasa as he graduates from high school but still is not obsessed with becoming a professional musician so he starts going to university while still doing some music for fun and he will be taken by late songwriter colombani wasenga to sing songs he'd sell to the professional artists
in early 2002 as he is in his final year of licence he will be spotted by gentamicine lisimo who takes him at home for a while to prepare him for tests and especially introduce him to those who were then closer to leader jb
and he will then introduce him to tutu caludji who was then the group's second most influent member and who will ease things for him to join wenge bcbg
his first steps in the group are not too easy as he is quite new to the environment of high level groups so he is very laid back while in congolese music opportunities arrive more easily for those who have some "character"
he'll then learn songs along with his friends abraham fudji and co and learn with the help of kisindjor to "act like a musician" and become more confident
in 2005 one factor will help him gain more esteem from jb as jb discovers he is actually the son of one of his(older) friends so he starts becoming a favourite of the chiefs caludji,seguin,jdl and making more and more appearances
in 2007 he will be used by seguin and jdl to unsettle caludji as they know he looks up to him in terms of "character"(tutu then being the perfect stereotype of congolese musician "attitude with cars,fancy clothes,big confidence...) and they convince he'd be a brilliant caludji replacement
so on two occasion he is sent to take by force caludji's microphone and sing in front of him which he does,once ending in a heated argument
at the end of the same year djino make his second participation  on a bcbg cd having three vocals,the first in zadio which was very well received and made him become popular,the second in claude itoma and the third in the song exces d'amour which he "stole" from colombani wasenga to get genta in his pocket
he is then obviously on the list for the return of bcbg in europe after serving the ban and gets a great reception there and becomes father 
boosted by this success he starts developping the stereotypes of a congolese musician becoming then the only bcbg musician who goes on tv to brag about his car and hit back at the likes of heritier and co of maison mere while most of the other are more of a low profile,media shy
and in 2009 when jb announces another group album will be recorded instead of his solo album djino expects to be one of the first to be given a song as a reward for him "fighting for bcbg's image through that lifestyle boasting" and he will end up sulking for weeks as he hears the first member of their generation to get a song is abraham who just returns from 11 months of suspension but he ends up getting his song as jb allows more than ten members
in 2010 while on europe tour with bcbg he will approach producer david monsoh to tell him he'd be interested to work with him one day as he feels he has become THE star of bcbg
on stage he starts becoming more and more confident even starting at times to act like a leader and tell older members to stop their impro and sing like it is on cd or to restart their vocal for fans which they do not appreciate
he'll offer them golden opportunities by continuing to act like a chef who just does not have an official roles,bullying new members like metro for example and will totally lose support of the "old guard" of bcbg when he dates a seguin sidekick and from then seguin starts betraying him to jb that he has some pre records and plans to record his album in europe should the group go on tour but jb first plays mind games waiting to see how far djino will get
in 2012 things will completely go hardcore as several donors report to jb that in private djino tells them that he is the guy who handed bcbg the europe tour because of his vocal in zadio followed with seguin bringing reports that him and rio were seen at didi kinuani house getting money and the nail in the coffin will be djino openly breaching the group rules of smoking weed in public at a professional context which gets jb absolutely furious and he decides that instead of suspending djino and letting him return to first team he'll let him perform with the group but he does not want to see him anywhere near podium once he has made his entrance
djino who feels humiliated to sing with people he sees as far inferior to him decides to leave and with financial support from koffi,among others,starts to seriously record his album while starting to diss jb  and belittling his ex colleagues(koffi's support followed by his attacks towards jb will be one of the starting points of the 3rd jb-koffi conflict)
while he still gets some support from some bcbg donors he goes on tv to start intense praise of didi kinuani which gets jb absolutely mad and orders donors to stop giving him money and informs kin's representatives of europe's authorities that if a musician called djino comes to apply for a visa in the name of bcbg they should know that he is no longer a member  so they should treat him like  a random congolese citizen but since djino applies just with his passport and no letter from his group(one of the cases which eases visas) and no clear idea of what he will go to do in europe as an artists he gets his visas rejected
suspecting jb to be behind his failure,he goes even harder on attacks gaining support from koffi's fans as the conflicts rises
in the meantimes he releases his album commandant de bord under david monsoh's obouo music label but he will face two factors which will strong go against him
in fact,despite recording a good album overall,he gets no support from bcbg fans obviously as he adds insult to injury by singing in his albums two songs which were destined to bcbg albums mposo and lituka,sees koffi fans much much much more interested in release of koffi's 13 eme apotre and sees monsoh signing heritier watanabe in which he has much more hope
he releases some clips which get some fans acknowledging his good job but does not get the huge success he expected and seeing in 2016 that in the first two years of their collaboration david monsoh has not done enough for him he decides to write a letter to end his contract and possibly join koffi central
and at the same time people around him and some bcbg donors who talked to him in private advised him to go on tv and apologize to jb in hope to turn things around for his career and get money from bcbg's donors back which he openly admits in interview,with presenters then telling him that his apology is not honest if driven by target of money
on media field,he loses his spokesman francis dibaya to heritier watanabe on a gentleman agreement with heritier but after hearing comments from francis once fully settled on heritier's side and with his desire to pretend he is up there with the very best of that generation he decides to go at all costs to europe to prove a point to francis who labelled him a local and deluded guy
he releases a generique which he does not even promote properly and decides to sell a lot of his stuff to fund trip to europe via greece and turkey since he is struggleing to get visa for france and he will post video of him in turkey
his move will split opinion,some mocking him for having to go through such a risky way just to dare somebody who is way ahead of him(heritier) some saying its part of a man's life to something go through such things and end up having a brighter future
unfortunately,a drama happens in the seas leaving so much people dead and at first people think he is among the victims,taking some days to be cleared out and confirmed he is alive
then few times later people see some videos of him singing and playing guitar in front of european people
and apparently he just returned home after seemingly failing to prove he can go to europe like fellow young leaders which are "taken seriously"

Djino is a clear case of failing to manage a little fame.

I'm really interested in Marcahouse biography. The time he spent in Reddy's band, Maison Mere's reserve band and when he helped Reddy back in 1999 when he came in Kinshasa to promote Etoile.

FREDDY MAKOLA LINAKASI AKA MARCHOUSE DAMBA KIMJONG


Freddy was born in kisangani in 1978 but grew up in kinshasa in the area of kasavubu,where he was following even before turning 10 one of his brothers who was in street groups
 but at that time he still was not seeing himself becoming a musician,but by the early 90's he will start to follow guitartist polystar tshimanga later known as coreen kinsansina in the group promise musica,which has the likes of tutu caludji,alino biongo "vimba",mboshi bola,alpatshino,pathy bass,tosha bass and many others who will make it in big groups later
and he starts developping strong attraction for guitar as he is trained in private by polystar and he will end up joining the group officially when some are already gone to big groups like quartier latin,wenge4X4,big stars...and will continue to go to class but since he starts to feel strong attraction towards music he will convince his parents to go to institute of arts,first starting with years of indoor designer and pottery and wil later by the end of 90's study music a bit and starts doing session work with various artists including reddy amisi who he will join later
but his first try in a top group will be in maison mere,in 2000,where he will find a lot of guitarists fighting for mi solo and rhythm roles
since his chance is not coming as fast as he expects he starts pondering to join other groups where he might get a bigger opportunity despite heritier trying his best to convince him to remain patient,and the arrival of his mentor polystar in maison mere from anti choc will make indirectly make him decide to leave and he first tries to contact caludji and gentamicine to join wenge bcbg which was his favorite destination before being taken to maison mere but they will explain to him that there is already alba who has strongly cemented his position with his konono style plus zygal and some other who succeeded in tests but do not even play a second in rehearsals let alone concerts and he meets one friend of reddy who tells him reddy is forming a band and he should come to join and gives him adress and money to come there
and he will be along with the likes of blaise createur,guy bayaya,doudou amiral(rip),guy laroche and co recruited in the newly born casa do canto and will shine in reddy's first album compteur a zero especially in the song assistance sociale
and at that moment will adopt the nickname of marchouse americano,he will become also  artistic director of the group along with guy bayaya
but he will not be satisfied with the fact the group does not tour abroad a lot despite reddy being well known,while heritier tries to convince him to rejoin maison mere and play mi-solo which is kind of free with the unstable nature of japonais and mbokaliya but he hesitates as he still holds bad memories of those weeks of standing under the hard sun barely getting the chance to play a song at rehearsal,being humiliated by bodyguards...
in 2004 he will visit jb mpiana at a concert and gets a lot of money from jb himself and bcbg donors and will whisper to caludji's hear he'd really love to join since la casa is starting to perform less and reddy is super stingy with them
one week after he will come to bcbg rehearsal instead of la casa rehearsal and jb explains to him that he cant risk ruining relationship with reddy so he should go back to reddy and surely the group become bigger like he wishes or maybe in the future he might get the possibility to play in bcbg but not under such circumstances
and he goes back to reddy rehearsal and reddy in his typical hot temper style openly rips into him in front of the whole group and suspends him indefinitely but thanks to intervention of some reddy friends he will rejoin the group weeks after and he will meet ferre at a tv station and ferre tells him he really likes how he plays and to be ready because one day they might collaborate
in the meantime ferre goes to europe with maison mere and stays there,while him marchouse is often in contact with zobozi who in the long run will become the spokesman for les marquis as ferre leaves with jdt and bill clinton,and thanks to zobozi he learns "how to do polemic" as he is so desperate to really earn himself a name and he sees that 90 per cent of the promise musica guys have been going to europe and around the world already with big groups
he remains with reddy and participates to recording of ligne droite released in 2005 but will remained close to zobozi who informs him of evolution of things related to ferre and les marquis and will end up leaving la casa do canto as he is fed up and has strong hope of joining ferre and finally putting his career on the right track according to him
and when ferre arrives in kin,he will meet him again while he is on tv announcing he has left la casa do canto and willing to join any group,starting to show some signs of his new attitude people will discover later,and ferre tells him to call him
ferre ends up joining quartier latin but they remain in contact via zobozi,and ferre leaves to really form his band now he comes for tests and outshines most of the rhythm guitarists who applied and from then will cement his position as a rhythm guitarist but since other members of la casa like blaise createur,guy bayaya and few others came to join reddy calls ferre so that they return but marchouse says he'd rather sell in streets than go back in a group where he'll only gets calls from kinshasa and bandundu province while he sees his friends changeing cars for fun,receiving calls and gifts from europe and america
and encouraged by those europe calls and gifts he starts to get,he will start to appear more on more on tv interviews and in 2007 it reaches a new level when he is often beefing on tv with the likes of equaliseur,ronsard kanza and co on fally ipupa's side
in 2008 when he comes to europe he will involved in a "fight" against fally's musicians and really starts to talk like zobozi
he will become also artistic director of ferre's group and a pivotal member of the group both for his guitar skills but also his ever growing taste for polemic
he will play in every ferre project starting from lubukulukumu which is issues to introduce the group before ferre's first album with his group(having done the first one with europe based musicians)
in 2012/2013 when beef between ferre and maison mere guys starts to get more intense,he will be at the forefront to face sankara and as a maison mere donor is ready to invest money to lure most of maison mere's major musicians to teach him a lesson marchouse is approached with offer of money plus a car,and when he alerts ferre a ferre donor straight away calls him to take him to a port and tell him to pick the car he wants
and his boasting level improves even more  and he become a real internet attraction for fans who love polemic and maison mere tries to undermine his work as a guitarist insisting that olivier tshimanga plays instead of him in studio
few years later,he has strongly cemented his name but causes controversy,a lot of people love him for his polemic "skills" and guitar,a lot hate him to death and belittle his artistic skills
and he will end up being arrested at some point following a complaint by fally ipupa and 4 days after he is out but while many would expect him to apologize and calm down,he becomes even more vocal,ready to defend ferre at all costs against anybody
when ferre will decide in 2016 to record an album having for the first time songs from group members he will offered possibility to add a song fautif and he promotes the song heavily before release and he will decline offer to join quartier latin and attack ferre as ferre and koffi have fallen out and goes hard on koffi on interviews
and to people's surprise clip of his song is not released for ages despite him hyping it up,and it ends up being released on 17th of may in 2019

ba moyi ya kin hahahaha

I remember that after Ferre's first tour in Europe, Marcahouse went with his new car towards place Reddy used in Bandal to rehearse  prove Reddy a point. He angry that  Reddy said in an interview to Ferre to not take Marcahouse to Europe, because he would be the first musician to run away. He was throwing little shots to Reddy in all interviews he made in during the tour in Europe, he also denied that he used to be a member of Reddy's band in of those interviews.

Where's Guy Bayaya now ? He was an excellent solist, far better than Charly Solo and Christian. I liked his sebenes in the Compteur a Zero-album. He would have been far if he stayed in Ferre's band. Reddy indirectly killed Guy's career by calling Ferre to take him back. It was a good choice from Blaise Createur to join Didier Lacoste some months later. Its seems that Reddy was a big tiran. I've never heard a good word from former musicians of his band Casa Do Canta. Its so sad that he never took the advantage to really promote his band. All his instrumentalists were aliens he had one of best drummer, bassist, rhythm-player and solists of Kinshasa. Maybe he knew that his bad behaviour would let run all his musicians away in Europe.
