Interesting story there on Chetani Gola, The fact that Werre did not do anything on musicians pay is a clear indication that he himself conspired in the whole scheme. And again why was Koffi blamed for taking in Ferre even after it was clear there was a serious fall out between Werra and Ferre?

Whoever was mad at Koffi for taking Ferre and Ferre for going to Quatier Latin is stupid because Ferre didn't come straight from Maison Mere he came from Les Marquis and even if he came from Maison mere why get mad at him because him and Werra had a fallout and Werra was also doing Ferre and the other band members dirty.

There were no need of even asking why he left  went to QL Band , you are right and i think it was health for his growth as well .That combination of Ferre , Fally and Soleil Wanga and co  was the best Koffi Olomide QL band of all the time  on my opinion but where is Soleil Wanga and why he is not succcessful as his peers in the QL band ? Archos and others please share with us i see him as one of the Fally and Ferre generation musician

after release of album miracles with les marquis,ferré chair de poule and bill clinton plan return to kinshasa while jdt is still waiting for his french papers
But in the meantime ferré is contacted again by koffi who is aware of the growing tension in the group(fight between bill and celezino,bill and japonais,bill and the secretary of the group who was recruited by ferre to name a few)
they agree for a 2 year contract and 30 000 dollars, 13 being paid before his arrival,and the rest being given to him once he fully participates in the group
but to disturb people about koffi destroying les marquis,they agree that ferre would come to kinshasa and pretend forming his group then shortly after leave it to join quartier latin so that he comes with the status of a free artist
bill clinton who had arrived in kinshasa one week before ferré and who got instruments throught his contract with skol attacked koffi on tv saying he was the man who destroyed les marquis
ferre then spent a couple of weeks with his group "les marquis des beaux garcons"with musicians like nicodem,his own brother guy aswell as a couple of musicians he had tested himself in maison mere(awulu wala and co)
then he goes back to europe quickly to sign his contract with koffi and rejoin kinshasa as a new quartier latin member
this is what happens during summer of 2005 and more precisely in june,as ferre and koffi return to kinshasa and a press conference announces his arrival in the group
one day before the concert of grand hotel where he will be officially presented to fans,ferré is lucky to avoid controversy as an incident happens between him and a cab driver he had hired for some hours so he could make his food shopping
in fact they had agreed a certain amount ferré would pay him when its over but when that time comes ferré hands the driver 1/4 of the amount they agreed and when the driver reminds him about it ferré slaps him and tells him "i am ferré you should feel honoured to be my driver even for free" throws the money on the guy's faces and  locks door of his house
luckily for ferré, his neighbours paid the driver and it avoided a big incident
the day of the concert,as expected ferré is officially presented to quartier latin fans and showcases his dancing and singing talent
and few days after,when ferré is also presented to fans in a popular concert in the area of tshangu in kinshasa,an area quite clearly dominated by werrason fans
during this concert, there are several incidents between quartier latin fans and maison mere fans as koffi is taunting them by coming to perform "on their territory" and  with their children ferré
after that concert,ferré receives a lot of pressure from his family to leave quartier latin as they fear for his security but he does not listen to them and remains in the group and quickly becomes a major member of quartier latin
in the same year,koffi adds to the generique of his sponsor skol a remix of his monde arabe hit silivi just to give quartier latin fans a taste of ferré in a quartier latin songs
from january to july of 2006 he actively participates to studio sessions of danger de mort where he has a song insecticide,it should have actually been two songs(insecticide and mercure) but other members are unhappy about it so koffi abandons that idea
ferre's influence in quartier latin grows so much that koffi ponders giving him chef d'orchestre role instead of fally ipupa who was given an album to keep him happy while treating ferré like a prince
nevertheless,koffi still has not paid ferré the rest of the money they had agreed and ferré,who reached his goal of gaining a bit more experience and benefiting from exposure of quartier latin to reclaim a strong popularity in congo,uses this  to start planning a solo career earlier than the 2 years agreed
he then starts missing concerts based on that argument and going to europe when he wants or in other cities of europe when the group is there when he wants and secretly start programming his album in belgium
to punish him koffi takes back the volkswagen he offered him and gives it to fally(his strategy of trying to make at least one of them happy ends up making him lose both) and hands him a long suspension which ferré rubbishes and when koffi decides to take him to court,its intervention from zacharie bababaswé and wrester edingwe moto na ngenge which convince him to withdraw it
ferre then goes back to kinshasa to start his solo career,contacts several songwriters(kibens,vigas,poba,eldorado,guy kashama to name a few) and visits papa lutumba and jb mpiana at concerts and they give him full blessings,aswell as some sorcerers to" ensure his career is succesful"
he goes back to europe to accelerate recording of his solo album named sens interdit (which is a kind of contrary of his rival fally ipupa's droit chemin)
5 months after his rival fally,he releases in january of 2007 album sens interdit  produced by one of brazzaville's army generals mr norbert dabira
album takes a bit of time to be accepted but by the end of the year things are better and ferre starts having concerts with his own group
the same year with support of felix wazekwa and jb mpiana ferré gets a contract with beer primus and to mark their partnership prepares a generique but also decides adding a rumba to introduce his singers
meanwhile,he tries to have europe visas for his group so that they catch up rival fally ipupa who just had his concert at olympia de paris but their visas are rejected,due to influence of another leader of congolese music
generique lubukulukumu and remix of his maison mere hit vita-imana are released in early 2008 and months later and with help of several authorities he gets visas for europe and has a concert in elysée montmartre in paris and a small europe tour
and he starts recording his future album qui est derriere toi which he releases one year after in 2009 and wins several awards with it aswell as gold disk and several succesful songs especially maboko pamba
one year after its time for a big event in europe as ferré plays at zenith in may 2010,and shortly after starts to announce futur album boite noire
but one year later he releases maxi single avant gout with songs leke leke and porte monnaie he took from boite noire just to give fans a taste of the quality of the future album
he receives best singer award at ndule awards,aswell as a couple of awards abroad and a nomination to kora awards with coupe decale song tchekelepete
two years after that,in july of 2013 he releases album boite noire which earns him best singer and best song award with kiti ya libaya(on par with fally ipupa's service)

What's the reason of his beef with Fally ?

the beef with fally started even before both arrived in big groups
in fact when ferre was in staff london and fally in new city they already had a little beef before a wenge musica concert as both groups have  some minutes before wenge came on stage
then it took another dimension when both became chef d'orchestre,there was competition of the most popular and best chef d orchestre between both and alain mpela aswell
 then after that,the fact fally was often at the house of one of ferre's girlfriends to "cover" for koffi who had a relationship with her(he was giving her money coming from koffi and stuff like that)it ended in a suspicion that it was fally who was sleeping with his girlfriend so it went a bit more personal
and now the rivalry is more about the fact both are leaders of that generation coming from clan wenge offshots and quartier latin

When Ferre made his group and left it to join Quatier Latin I think that is the same thing Bercy did to join Maison Mere, he left Ferre and made his group and released a generique then went to La Zamba so it looks like he came from his own group and not Ferre. And which artist had influence to reject Ferre's musicians visas and how would they have influence? Ferre should name his group "Les Marquis  des Beaux
Garçon" or "Les Gaulois" or something you can't just have your group called "Ferre's group" even though they are Ferre's group.

probably nsone,as celeo and kabosé had similar problems for their own visas,the rest of their generation were saved because they had french or belgian papers already
and leaders in general have an access with some authorities if you are too talkative when you live them they will make you pay for it somehow
latest example of that,is djino who got his visa rejected two times when he tried to do it on jb's back while still being in the band but suspended, and a third time after his noisy interviews in almost every kinshasa tv
and about  ferre's group, all them followed fally,plain and simple,had fally name his group for example new city de la bogania like one of his former groups,all the others would have followed
even bill's les samourai arrived because he nicknamed himself le samourai de tous les marquis

His arrogance, not being serious in signing contracts, his complex towards Fally is killing is career and his bad entourage.
There are every time problems between session-musicians or songwriters about the amount they agreed that he must pay, he also had every year problems with concert-promotion for not showing up(most notable is the problem he got with Lumba Bawu). It was better for Ferre to chose David Monsoh to promote his album instead of General Dabira, but he was to hurried to record his album for not letting Fally dominate Kinshasa. Which led to refuse of Maika Munan to arrange his album. I think that if Ferre to more time to record his album and letting the promotion to David Monsoh that he would be more feather than he now is or maybe feather than Fally.

I've noticed that Ferre is very into satanism since Qui est Derriere Toi. He's promoting and supporting it indirectly in songs, interviews and posters who are announcing his albums. Examples are his slogan 'toko mema bango likolo', some songs in Boite Noire and the promotion poster of Qui est Derriere Toi & Boite Noire.

Even though Sissi Silivi was a remix I find it odd that Fally didn't get to put his vocal and Soleil did.  ???

Archos, the vehicle that Koffi had given to Ferre was a Mercedes Benz coupe, the very yellow one shown on the Danger De Mort promotional bonus videos, it was Koffi's from way back. I think the VW Beetle was always Fally's,it's most likely the blue one Fally was shown driving on the same videos around 2005.

no man there was also a beetle which koffi bought him and then gave to fally
i particularly remember it because it was headlines of a newspaper back then
it said "mopao gives to dicap ferre's kiula"(kiula being the way people called this type of car and there was an interview of montana in that newspaper trying to  rubbish rumours of tension in quartier latin folowing ferre's arrival
