He and Champy Kilo were absolute beasts at instrumentals. Other artists, even Congolese have tried to replicate the style, but haven’t come close. RIP to a trailblazer



Back in 2009-10 these were the biggest clubs songs

 djessimidjeka is the type of songs our artists say " esalami na molimo", they recorded that song in strange circumstances(nothing mystic) but it always seemed like something was against them to record that song
and the day they could record they did both the beat and his vocals one way  no restart because they had strong anger over the way it was so difficult for them to record(for example once the studio door was locked and they waited outside for almost a day until then the next time they tried another after some time somebody came to open
but i must confess i prefer by far the younger arafat,that screaming  and with no sense most of the time is not easy to listen to seriously

Yeah, overall I’m with you on young Arafat. His later music lacked one would say “profondeur” since 80% of the vocals were make up words and cries. But he created his own style other DJ’s and groups began to copy

Nonetheless, his work ethic was without reproach. Almost always in the studio trying to outdo himself
