Yeah Koffi has the best booklets. The most booklets of JPS Production artists are short.

It looks like that Koffi Olomide was the only artist who gave Philiphe Guez the freedom to do his stuff on his albums. He was on his peak on Effrakata & Affaire d'Etat. Fally & Ferre has to put him as arranger of their albums.
It's true no matter what people say about him on here koffi from loi to affaire d'etat was untouchable everything he put was fantastic fally and ferre haven't even put out album Anywhere near comparable to any of those albums koffi put out

Koffi was better between Noblesse Oblige and Loi. He reached his peak during this period (1993-1997)

That's debatable. I was in France in 2000-01 and his level of popularity in Europe for an African artist blew my mind. You would se his concert flyers everywhere, and all his albums would be in showcase at Tower records and other white people record stores.

I enjoy both periods, but the renaissance he had in late 1998 after the first QL exodus set him up for the "Mopao Mokonzi" era that lasted until late 2003, when the era of big concert halls came to an abrupt end.

No not even he reached perfection after Loi he easily sold out mystic halls like Olympia Zenith Bercy he also won Kora awards and so on every show and album was fantastic Effrakata being his best album

In an interview with Pitshou Mangaya he said that he came when Effrakata was already finished and ready for the mixing. At that moment Champion was still there with Cambodge. So then Koffi asked him to go to play the drums with him getting the headphone up and playing all the songs they did. With Koffi then asking to all his musicians, which part was better with all musicians choosing Titina's part. After that moment Champion left (he already angry that Cambogde played the two generics, while he was the Chef d'Orchestre). That's why Koffi credited Titina instead of Champion. But you can hear him on Bilan, Gilba, Washington & Ravisse.

In the same interview Titina said that he didn't had a problem with Champion. But 4 or 5 years ago Champion made an interview, where he throwed some shots to him. Saying that Koffi prefered a guy who he was paying 50 dolllars instead of him who was earing 500 dollars. In an other interview he said that he wasn't happy the way Koffi let Cambodge play the generics and some important songs, which led to a heated argument with him leaving angry the studio. The same story was reported to the press. But I was surprised to hear from Titina, that he joined when Champion still was there. I guess that it was the reason why Koffi reconciled both by letting them dance during a concert in Bordeaux ('05). Saying on the end "Ba songeur bakoti mayi whoo".



They deleted the long version

Koffi reached his peak in terms of POPULARITY after LOI. I'll say between LOi and Monde Arabe.

However, MUSICALLY, he reached his peak before that period.

Between 1993 and 1997, Koffi back to back dropped Noblesse Oblige, V12, Wake Up and Loi. This is just incredible. He never had such run after, even though he made some good things with the Fally era QL.

Effrakata is not superior to V12, Noblesse Oblige or Wake Up.

I'll put it in the same level with LOI.

that v12 album is very special, we shoud make a special thread for this album. From andrada to Zokere you can feel the fact that he realy want to make the perfect one, to me is like a african version of thriller. I mean the album have a singular color, an atmosphere and type of sound.
Loi to me it was like a effrakata 0.5.

Ndeko, @Paysan Congolais these are subjective arguments you're making, so naturally not everyone is going to agree. It's kind of like asking a Jazz fan which Miles Davis period was the best.

Brothers I was talking about Philphe Guez being on the peak on terms of arragements, not about Koffi Olomide lol. He did also a wonderful job on Wake Up. Listen to Litio ya Calendrier, Esakola & Maryama Terre Batue. Papito Charme & Sens Inverse "Remix" were also amazing.

About Koffi's peak-periode in terms of succes and popularity in Africa, I would say at it started from Loi until 2004. About albums I Always prefer  Koweit Rive Gauche, Noblesse Oblige, V12 and Effrakata above the rest.

Roga Roga's behaviour reminds me how Franco took control over TPOK Jazz.
