Roger Izeidi explaining how Tabu Ley himself made his band after Olympia, by creating conflicts between musicians knowning that everybody wasn’t the way they weren’t paid. Also the way the late President Tombalbaye of Tchad paid 10 millions franc Francais for African Fiesta National in 1968 for the way he fought musicians in Tchad how the make Congolese music. But Tabu Ley who didn’t even help after some months secretly going to Tchad to get the money and his musicians not even knowing it. Tabu Ley spending all the money on girls and cars.

This is no shocker. Tabu Ley was too egoistic and he often let his ego get the best of him. No wonder musicians would leave Tabu Ley more easily. This interview confirms Tabu Ley's ego problem that was well documented over the years if you are a serious Congolese music follower. Stealing money was part of it.
