In short he explains his entrance in empire bakuba with first concert just two days after he was introduced to the three leaders  and explained how he threw his all in the group in the  7 years he spent in the group  and he was named lofombo because of a footballer who was famous for having very strong shots ,in comparison to his style of bass
he says his best memory in empire was the fact he got married( may she rip) and he had disappeared a bit because of loss of his wife he had to take time to recover and even his kids would have found him strange if he kept spending whole days at studio like nothing happened
he says the downfall  of our music is due to lack of proper sponsorship,in the past a lot of companies were being partners of the group and backing them on tours and studio whereas nowadays its harder to find people who will aim higher than the fame they expect from buying a song to their name so they have to depend on politicians and he hints that  he refuses to be part of that system where you are backed by politicians and use black magic for success and even if you sing stupid stuff people cheer he does not want that type of success and there is a lot of talented people  who struggle a lot in their career because they refuse to bow to the system
he adds that  evil has developed a lot in our music, in the past you'd see franco take some other groups on tour with him while nowadays  the  leaders  will do their best to" kill" groups or artists who are on the rise or do not support him while he worked for them whenever they need them and he has proof that one of them even tried to get him fired from one of the places he works at but thankfully his plan failed
about ferre koffi beef he says he contacted koffi praising him as the remaining legend we have after papa simaro and urged koffi not to continue into beef but rather help younger artists and be a role model to them and that he is not hearing about that beef anymore so he hopes they will sort it out anyway
for him ferre is a great singer and a phenomenon,just like bill clinton just like himself because they had influenced a whole generation  there have been a lot of singers trying to sing like ferre or atalakus trying to be like bill or bassists to be like him,even outside drc
he also added emeneya who a lot of singers followed
but he regrets that they are not supported enough so for example to fund material for his studio he had to  play on various albums or songs or be arranger and he mentions zigida,premier soin of ferre,a lot of manda chante songs of je suis,most of QQJD on bass,caligula,bill's kibota generique... but he feels overall in his contribution over the years on people's album he did not get paid back well for example in interventional rapide he programmed arranger and played bass on chantal switerzland and was paid around 40 dollars
 for him 2017 has been a bad year because he lost his lifelong wife and a couple more of people who were very close to him and at job level he was disappointed so many times so he has upped his conditions to do session work with artists and he thanks ferre who quite some time after qqjd release  gave him a good amount of money to thank him for his great contribution on bass sound engineer and arrangement while he had previously paid him those little amounts he used to get  and he is happy because it came from ferre himself as he was appreciative of the great sound lofombo helped  in producing

Kiekie, every album Werra looses confidence in his bassists and gives Lof Lofombo a call. He’s going to get  aggressively salty because he speaks nothing but facts (as he always does)
