Oh yes,the list you put up is incomplete unless you didn't cut and paste well because if Ferre Gola who was one of the last to join can be on the list then where do we place Maitre Ficarre,Mboka Liya, Christian Mabanga, Ali Mbonda, Titina, Japonais,Patient Kusangila,Kaludji, Roberto,Theo Bidens even Seguin Mignon and many others who were in the background or before the band became massive and split up.

they had decided the roles after a reunion,and the fact former president mavo who was not a musician lost his head
then they picked jb president,werra financial director(and the second president behind the scenes),only makaba's role was natural as artistic director
you'll notice that it's the president and financial director who had the biggest conflict when they grew up and really understood what it meant
then there was tata as vice president and blaise as chef d orchestre but they did not have a massive role except of their singing duties

That was a problem, having a president and a defacto president.
