I'm guessing the early eighties or mid eighties.

Nice picture, back in those days Nyoka Longo was a big mobutist and used to praise MPR often in Zaiko songs like Kin Kiesse. Even during those so called "democracy" days of 1990-1997, he used to support MPR and Mobutu during meetings. Back in 1990 they even recorded song for the Bindo-project "MPR ezongi pona makambu ya Bindo", which was made to corrupt people in order to support MPR and forget all those crimes Mobutu were doing in 1990.

The abacost, people don’t wear it anymore since 1990. Imagine Maître Gims wearing it, he could start a trend with it.

I think he is still a pro-Mobutu. He talked about something that the "president" had an anniversary or such a few years ago that he commemorated. And many other musicians from those decades, too. However to Nyoka Longo personally I forgive this. His work as an artist is enormous. You can debate whether he could be a better boss, but it is a serious achievement that he can still keep his band on the Congolese track under such trends that we experience.

I'm just upset that combatants never have that energy to return to Congo and raise hell against the establishment, because ruining concerts doesn't make a damn of difference for the average guy in Kinshasa.
