Must have cost a lot of money to rent out a shopping centre just to film clips.

Not really. Most bandleaders were doing it for free since that they knew the boss. The same for the former Intercontinental-hotel also known as Grand Hotel (nowadays Pullman).

Nsele makes part of the 24 area's of Kinshasa. It's outside the city but it's in the Kinshasa-provinces. Back in the days it was making part of the Kwilu-district when Bandundu, Kinshasa and Kongo Central used to be one province (Leopoldville-province). Then in 1966 Mobutu decided to split the Leopoldville-provinces in three parts. With him adding some ground of Kwilu (Maluku, Nsele) and Lukaya (Mont Ngafula & Lemba) which now one of the districs of Kongo Central to Kinshasa. In 1966 Mobutu made Domaine Presidentielle de Nsele in Nsele. One year later he created there his party MPR along with Etienne Tshisekedi, Justin Bomboko and Singa Udjuu who were all co-founders of MPR. They made also Manifeste de Nsele. In 1991 it was looted and after 1997 it became abannoned.

My oncle said that Mobutu did some human sacrifices there in Nsele and that those 4 martyrs of the pentecost were buried there secretly.



The lootings of 1991 & 1993 really killed Zaire. It brought Zaire really down economically and FIKIN, Gombe and Nsele were destroyed.

Like Maluku who's outside the city you can also buy alot of ground in Nsele. The same for some quarters and villages in Mont Ngafula.

Mobutu was a scary person after that Defao is making a video in a location where people were buried very curious.

Lol many people filmed videos there and people used to perform there. It used to be attractive location. Those things with Mobutu happened before he build those things there like Palais du Peuple. Wenge 4x4 used to perform in Nsele often. It became a ruin when LD Kabila took the in 1997. Simolo Katondi and Heritier Watanabe used to shoot video there recently .

Hahaha what do you have with Galerie la Fleur. It isn't even that special. All those Couvre Feu videos were filmed there. Bozi shooted some videoclips. That's all that I can remember. Some journalists like Zacharie Bababaswe, Serge Kayembe, Paulin Mukendi, were interviewing people there.


I don't know if it's Madilu's house or not. But the video of Rendez Vous Manque was filmed at Werrason's house in Ma Campagne before changing it. That of Wemba was filmed in the house he got from Bracongo which is also in Ma Campagne. Wemba's house changed alot. He was changing it every year.
