At a recent musicians reconciliatory meeting called by the Police Chief in Kinshasa General Kanyama, Mamu Nationale Tshala Muana begged General Kanyama to ensure that everything is done so that all musicians' spokesmen are barred from speaking on national tv.


Wenge BCBG PR team member in white says that it because of their jobs that they feed their children,build houses etc, he says why should spokesmen be singled out simply because of one person(Koffi) blah blah blah.

Can someone please provided me with the names of Bob Marley's Spokesman? Or Franco Luambo spokesman? We don't need those CLOWNS...they just show up every where to INSULT; that's what they do best. Kanyama can create a new band full of clowns like Sankara and Mosaka to make people laugh. I'm sure they can make a lot of money doing that.

Maybe if he had one he would've shot more than the sheriff, spokesman take the heat for or off the artists; then again you can argue that Luambo and Tough Gong were spokesmen of their genre...

I think these spokesmen are just for Congolese TV and Internet because I don't even think they announce the programs of their groups internationally, Congolese artists just like other artists have managers who manage them and stuff but I don't really think they need a spokesman because they artists themselves can go on TV and say " album na biso ezo Ya kala mingi te". And if someone else attacks another artists then the musicians of that artists can defend their boss.

 of course their role is limited,dont expect them to do song analysis and stuff like that,but it would be unfair to condemn the whole corporation because of clan wenge and quartier latin spokesmen who have always been the most involved in polemic
 many do their job quietly and properly
also they feed their families with that job or "job" if we consider them based on the "big names" spokesmen
i think fault comes for their leaders aswell, the day leaders wont send them to do it ,they will calm down,but unfortunately we still have leaders themselves mocking  others' physique and those type of things

Those guys are just good for a Puppet-show. They know nothing when it comes to marketing, music and organization. But when it comes to INSULTS, I can bow my head before them because that’s THE MAJOR GIFT THEY GOT FROM SATAN. THEY REALLY KNOW HOW TO USE IT TO PLEASE THEIR SO CALLED LEADERS.

Jdog,

I would like to inform you that most of the Congolese Singers have no Managers. Some just use their close friends to pick up their phones when they don’t feel like talking; the friend improvises himself as the Manager. After the conversation is over, he goes back to the “friend” status. It is very hard to deal with a Congolese Artist. I dealt with Tiken Jah Fakoly, Alpha Blondy, Papa Wemba and a Salsa band from Toronto. The person I had trouble dealing with was the OLDEST one;  Papa Wemba.

So are you saying that it would be better for Congolese artist to do what Lokua Kanza does which is having no bodyguard and plain clothes etc?

Why was Papa Wemba hard to deal with?

Why would they do song analysis in the first place, I really don't get you unless the spokesmen on TV and say that a songs from a artists isn't good and they analyze it like how Sankara said Brigade's first generique had a lot of unnecessary changes.

At this very moment Fally doesn't even have a spokesman he just has Ambassy go on TV and announce the groups program.

yes technically singers can do what they do but since they have been given a role for over 2 decades now i find it unfair that their role would stop completeley
kanyama has apparently scared musicians and their employees enough so that they stop polemic anyway
