I listened to these songs, I wondered if a lot of artists (Wenge, Koffi, Wemba, Kester, Zaiko etc.) were inspired by the "West Indies" trend apart from the Soukous groups.

Do you have songs to share?

Of course they say it often in interviews,  that were influenced by Kassav who had a huge succes in Francophone Africa during the 80s, filling stadiums when they came (themselves being surpised the way they were loved in Africa). Their succes was so big, that it created a genre in Angola called Kizomba, that was inspired by their musicstyle (Zouk).

There are many songs who have Zouk-parts, a part of Eve Sukali (Wenge Musica), a part of Amie Reviens (Extra Musica), a part of La Vie (Wenge Musica), the whole song of Overdose (Papa Wemba), Experience (Koffi Olomide), Douceur (Mbilia Bel), there are alot of songs like that.

Thank you for Experience and Douceur. I did not know these songs.

I realized that this song is inspired by zouk :



If you have other titles, do not hesitate, because we are in a period of confinement, we have time to listen to music

The instrumental of the song Queen Lina is plagiat from the song St Eloi made
