to understand well the origin of light music we have to go back to 2005 and artist heritier watanabe on the verge of going from being one of the many stars of wenge maison mere to being the main man after leader werrason
in fact,as heritier knows he is bound to get much more opportunities to express himself as an artists thanks to his new role  he surrounds himself of several songwriters,vocals providers and so on in order to be as efficient as possible
among them the likes of ibrator mbuzi,mobe molondo,djodjo lina,adada....who will introduce to him fabregas who they also was working with
then as we all know from 2008 2009 fabregas will become an important member of wenge maison mere and him and heritier will be more or less sharing this crop of private artists and sometimes heritier asking to do some work they did with fabregas(the biggest example being him doing vocal ibrator wrote for fabregas in the song meilleur couple) or vice versa
the turning point which will indirectly lead to light music birth is zenith 2010 of werrason and wenge maison mere as few times after the succesful concert heritier tells fabregas "i can feel it,in few years it will be me leading the show at this hall,i just can feel it)
heritier's comments will have two effects on fabregas the first being that it will start making him think about a potential solo career and the second is that he will fear losing the private group to heritier as heritier who is in a stronger position in the group is able to treat them a bit better
he will then task adada to program a few songs in case either he has to release a song in maison mere(which he will never have done by the way,always singing werra songs) or go solo and at the same time that crop of friends start to feel very eager and ready to become professional musicians
omba is the first singer to leave the "group" as his mentor jean goubald introduces him to koffi followed by atalaku plata ngwangi who start some session work
knowing that heritier hesitates a lot about whether he has to leave straight away or take time before leaving most of the guys try to convince fabregas and that they will help him with their songs so that its a win win since he has some exposure already so he can help them get some aswell
while on tour with maison mere in 2011,fabregas calls some of them to ask them to start proper pre records in studios and went he comes back he informs them he thinks he is gonna seize the opportunity now as they have too good songs which he could lose as they have other customers aswell and he feels the moment has come for him to become more than a guy who sing that funny type of singing they created in matete and prove he is a proper artist
he goes on tour again having secretly done some preliminary voice records but knowing he will leave and will find a golden opportunity with the fact he meets his current wife terry alino
he briefly returns with maison mere and returns on his own to europe as visa is not over yet and takes with him the pre records ibrator adada yasser arafat but na filet thierry mugler and co did in kin's studios and records his album amour amour( the name of the church/sect he prayed at) and thanks to technology gets ibrator and co to record in kin while he is in europe  and send to him for mix and mastering
when fabregas starts to return to kinshasa he decides to officially form his band with his friends of the private group from and as he aims to do something different to fally and ferre who do not have a band name automatically given to their band the way werra clearly has maison mere,jb has bcbg ,koffi has quartier latin...discusses with them over a potential name
they hesitates over nova musica,fab music and a couple of names,in the mean times fabregas goes back to europe and ibrator starts using his funds to do a bit of promotion on tv with the then very professional carine mokonzi and doing along with other guys playbacks in nightclubs
when fabregas returns again,a name is found by ibrator's younger brother as they transform lumia musica which is one of the names they preferred into light music as to say a music  which allows a lot of soft accoustic unlike other artists who fully go with electric and electronic sound
light music is then born from the private group and some guys like yumbi,sprada lindalala or heritier's older brother pongo pontiac remain with heritier in private group while fabregas starts to present light music and promote album first true concerts in his area of matete
 the particularity of that group compared to others being the insane number of songwriters within a same group ibrator,adada,yasser,mobe,but na filet

Very informative! Thanks Marta archos. So But na Fille comes a long way too,I love that guy,his song is simply the best on the album,very good composition and arrangement.

It was a bold move by Fabregas and it has paid off,he did well to go solo!
