To put a face to a name. This guy has been a playboy for like 40 years now. One of the early Luanda diamond millionaires; he's financed all the the big artists.

UNITA-leader Jonas Savimbi helped him alot. But Tcha Tcho started to lose it when MPLA took controle over the Lunda Norte province. Didi Kinuani who was then close to MPLA started to take everything over. I wonder were the others guys from the Bana Lunda-generations like Papito Mbala & Jeannpy Pipina "Mosenzi Ya Diamant" went, because I don't hear them anymore in songs.

For me it's Werrason who made the best Tcha Tcho Mbala-song



I remember alot of Congolese people going to Lunda Norte in the hope to become rich by finding diamonds, since that crisis was hitting Zaire very hard with alot of graduates being unemployed. But alot of them died sadly in Angola, women getting rape by soldiers, some being recuited by the UNITA and others dying of famine. The life was very hard for them. King Kester Emeneya & JB Mpiana songs about their life.




So sad that that none of the big names from the Kwilu & Kwango provinces (ex'Bandundu) build big things in their provinces. Spending all money only on Kinshasa.
