I grew up in a koffi/wemba household so althought I knew about Wenge MMM because they were everywhere at the time I had to do my own research to learn about Wenge 4x4 and this was the first song I stumbled upon. And it was that exact same video of the concert in Bruxelles. After some tike I started listening to all 4x4 albums and listened to Pleins Feux. At the time I was of the same opinion and liked the live version hundred times more than the CD version, but the more I grow in age the more I learned to appreciate the CD version as well. To me the singing part of the song is better on the CD than the live. The singing part has more instrumentalisation, but the big difference here is the sebene part. Robert Ekotoka brought SO MUCH ENERGY during the live version. Its hard to believe he wasnt able to make it past the late 90s. Such a powerful voice and powerful performance there. Thats the big difference to me.
