fabro basically was not into it like that, when he started really they were already in the group they actually started to fallout a bit when he wanted him as chef to be involved like most chef were and since he refused  he pulled the other trick which is letting mbonda player or an atalaku share the "nzungu" with the boss(and guess who had success in ya mado?)
It is witchcraft fundamental to succeed in Congolese music? Howcome every major artist is so obsessed about it? I mean Robinio had a great deal of success before entering that game with Tsha Nanu Boye, Ye Yo, Etirette and 4 Lettres also Fabregas weren't doing bad before Ya Mado and we all know it is due Koffi's influence that the song became a success.
Why are these artist obsessed about this witchcraft? I mean if it was really effective Congolese music would have dominated the global scene

its the system,there are people around who will convince you that an artist in DRC is weed,witchcraft,bodyguard,bullying people  to show authority....and very few artists have that intelligence to do things their own way

Zygal didn't play telecommandegenerique. It was the guy who went to Herieter

Any confirmation that French is the creator of the telecommande rhythm?

FISTON BOKALA BONONGE LIFAMBE BOKUNDUJUANDJOKO AKA LOBESO TIGRE


fiston was born in 1982 in his region of equateur but will quickly arrive in kinshasa with his mother who is trying to follow his father who ran away
so he will grow up in kinshasa in area of ngaba and will have a difficult childhood without father,and with his mother trying to feed a big family of children of different women
but he will be good at school and his mother will keep saying "one day fiston will become the president of congo"
at some point in 90's her mother will send him and some of relatives to village to be taken care of by grandparents but quickly it turned hard again with them caught by age and unable to work properly so he'll do some unusual jobs for such a young man like fishing to sell fishes,cleaning shoesL..
He will be recalled later by an uncle and has discovered in himself some ability to do animation while  cleaning shoes and things are a little bit better for him he is no more the first name to be sent out of class for lack of school fees for a couple of years
but as he edges towards last years of high school his uncle will lose his job then pass away following depression of such a radical life change,so he is once again in streets trying to get some opportunity to earn money and pay fees and feed younger brothers as he already has sense of responsability
and passion for music develops even more and he starts performing in various street groups until he ends up joining empire fondation kvk of boeing kinanga and co and performs on album sauvetage where he already mixes sebene like his role model caludji and traditional mongo folk
but boeing goes to europe for a while and he is spotted some time later by gentamicine lisimo who takes him under his wings and takes him at home to work in private and he will impress with his ability to create in 6 congolese languages and to be able to go on hours of impro and will be nicknamed fiston genie by genta's elder brother degaulle lisimo
unfortunately he is not tested in bcbg rehearsals as expected as tutu caludji openly boosts cellulaire  to complement genta and brings with him two of his private group pajo and chaleur coming from quartier latin integral
and on two occasions he gets opportunity to see jb himself on public test days but first time heavy rain cancels rehearsal and second time his name is removed on list by late maitre baja for not having paid something which puts genta in uncomfortable situation as he thought fiston would be automatic on list as he is backed by him and fiston who does not understand wenge system believes genta did not put him on list deliberately to keep him in private group to help him and gets angry and leaves for months
but months after he makes peace with genta and genta to appease him pays night classes for him so that he can continue with class a little bit with the hope of getting diploma one day
but since he still is not able to get him into bcbg as a full member he is advised by genta to try to join maison mere who is then just bouncing from bill's departure with roi david but he is bullied by bodyguards and he decides to go back to village to relax and think about his future when he comes back he is informed of koffi olomide about to form a junior band to quartier latin,les mineurs,and attends tests and first succeeds but few times later when montana is asked to cut some of the list as there are too many members he is kicked out and decides to try going again to maison mere in end of 2006 but he is once again bullied and thrown out
few months later,he goes back to village again and asks ancestors what he can do because he is struggleing to fulfill his dream to become a star and take care of his family
later on when he returns he is finally tested boosted by traditional power and presents an animation for announced  solo album of werra arche de noe but maison mere travel and when he comes to la zamba rehearsals in werra's absence one day he is denied access by a guard and the day after he comes and presents he has hidden in his fist he wants to give to that guard in particular and that guard will break arm the same day which will scare other guards
and when werra returns he is slowly included into rotation until he revives some of his old mongo animation of his empire foundation days and werra who is a big fan of animation in other languages than lingala appreciates it and plans to make him participate in album temps present and he will participate and shine with his mongo animation with the key dance "lobeso" which becomes his nickname but stil werra does not really fancy him to participate on clip because of his looks and it will be heritier waking him up behind werra's back and giving him clothes to shoot some sequences which werra will discover at editing but will accept since its heritier
and since his success is growing he is obviously gone to europe and shines at zenith and gets a lot of money and gifts,and when he is back in DRC his "big brother" genta who he still hangs out with everytime outside music  advises him to buy a house for his family instead of losing everything in partying life because it ends faster than you can imagine and he manages to buy a house in one of the areas with reasonable price and moves  his family there
his stellar participation in malewa will earn him best atalaku awards and he will come back from europe tour with a lot of money again from fans and donors and comes back with a bmw x5 which was quite huge for a simple band member
in 2011 during maison mere's last tour before europe and america combattants forbidding concerts he is approached by taddet and fabregas to leave maison mere and form band together and convince heritier who will be the leader but he refuses and remains loyal while fabregas leaves
two years after,during a group reunion he asks to get a song  on albums as he has to mix his mabanga names with names werra orders to put,sometimes at expense of his names,and some of his mabanga customers had become combattants so he was getting less money
and while werra does not say anything this does not go to well with people around werra who already try to influence werra with reports that he is approached by koffi to join quartier latin
in 2014 they will take their unsettling to a whole other level by organizeing arrival of atalaku bercy muana from ferre's group and he will be publicly humiliated in a very popular test of bercy and will struggle to hide emotion after that and it will take the whol night for heritier coreen and deplick to try to calm him down as he is ready to accept koffi's offer in the heat of the moment
but comforted by his friends he goes back to village to see ancestors and come back very strong with kata fumbwa which will force werra to record a new generique as he had minimal participation on fleche ingeta for somebody who was normally the number 1 atalaku until bercy's arrival,and funnily enough it will be kata fumbwa which will save werra as people find fleche ingeta generiques too predictable and overused in concerts already
he will participate on sans poteau having this time more space as he has earned back respect with his work and he will politely refuse to follow heritier watanabe gone solo,he will be abandon in angola during tour hoping that he stays there but he returns
when bercy is gone,he expects to fully reclaim his 1st spot but to his surprised ambulance who is promoted to 2nd atalaku role will participate way more than him in 7 jours de la semaine and what will make him get in a more uncomfortable situation is an interview with journalist patsho rfi where he will say he does not have money to buy lots of champagne in nightclubs and that salary is not monthly in maison mere which will be used to unsettle him
while he was promised to be on the list for private trip of werra to united states to reward him for his resilience in tough moments and how he bailed the group out in front of the storm ya mado  he will be dropped
he will be insulted by several maison mere people with especially sankara and papy le prince saying his mother did not know who is his real father because she was dating three men and will decide to go back to village to rest as he is very frustrated as he says he was ready to have his career until the end with werra and that if he had to pick between his dad and werra he'd pick werra because he has no relationship with his dad so he is hurt to be treated like that
in a tv interview he will explain why he answered like that to patcho and that he meant no harm to maison mere and will end up crying and he goes back to village for a while and maison mere guys will make mockery of him for being a village man and taddet will be sent to lie that they called him and an old person picked and said lobeso was fishing (in the musicians' logic anything which is not office work is a massive downgrade from music so people laugh until today even when guys like mbuta likasu or manda chante say they have farms outside music)
when he returns to kin he appears dressed like a traditional chief and starts announcing he is going solo despite koffi still offering to him to join and he says he'd be stupid to join when he sees what happened to gesac,and there is also ferre who likes him and a donor who wants to pay him to join ferre's group but he declines to avoid fuelling ferre's beef with werra
He will then team up with coreen to form group and will perform in some conceerts here and there with coreen but still has desire to go to america where he has a children or to europe too in order to try claiming papers which would help him be mobile to go to get contacts for their group like other solo artists of his age do
unfortunately he will as he sees they are struggleing with maison mere donors boycotting them and some of his mongo politicians who were his donors turn back on him,he will take the gamble to go to USA via eastern africa but unfortunately for him he is arrested until today and is reportedly in a bad health state

He should have gone to Ferre. I mean Wenge Musica Maison Mere can destroy your life if they don't like you and the only guy who could counter that was Ferre. To be honest I am a little glad Werra got kicked out of La Zamba and that Maison Mere is loosing his success despite being a fan o Maison Mere. I mean bully people who helped you, humiliating them, try to make them go crazy for what? I mean these guys have 40+ year olds still acting like they are little babies than they cry because music is not going forward.

Anyway Archos you should write a book. For real.
A book on all the Congolese musicians and tactics

Thank bro for the entire Lobeso's bio. I think that is very unfortunate that any musician/leader or donor has gone to Uganda to try to unjail him

Do you think he can turn his career around? Or is he finished?

Mmm. Probably not. There are too many odds against him and his career.
Wenge musica offshot except for Ferre and Heritiee always have good relationship with Werra so they will not welcomed a guy so mistreated, humiliated and hated by headquarters as Lobeso. Ferre had the offer but I don't think if Lobeso comes now he will find the other atalakus welcoming him with open arms. He should have just gone to BCBG amd wait to become a big member there. I mean Genta is not Bill but he will be well off forever unlike many other talented atalakus of Maison Mere who struggle (like Brigade)

He may not fit in BCBG ideology, he is quite abrasive

In what sense?
I think he would have been protected like Fusee and Tolbert solo but about his development as an atalaku that is a big question, I mean ca you imagine JB's generique with Mongo rhytm and style? I think Genta would have used some songwriters to make Lobeso sing in multiple languages

actually lobeso developped that rude image out of frustration because he felt let down  and also he was unhappy with himself for having not stayed in france despite pressure of everybody including all his girlfriends and celeo and lacoste having warned him that the day he will not be wanted anymore they'll have no mercy for him
other than that he is a cool and very very funny person
the context is totally different for the comparison i will make here but its a bit like that with boketshu a lot of people know him for his rude combattant character but behind that there is a proper good guy i have known him way before combattants and he is a really good person
