BLAISE BONGONGO IYELI aka SEGUIN MIGNON

Blaise was born on 20th of may in 1976 in kinshasa and he started learning drums and mbonda aged 6 at church and will be quickly "punished" by not being allowed anymore to do anything related to music as his results start dropping
in early 90's when his mother who was a rich businessman passed away its a massive change in their life  and now he has to do music almost to survive as his family is busy sharing his mother's wealth ,so he'll start street music in the group LARMS and shortly later he'll move to house of his cousins  alain and bouro mpela and will perform in one of the groups of matete for a couple weeks then he'll be invited by a classmate into fraternite musica of bandal with didi kalombo as their leader and the likes of celeo,mamale and co
and in 1994 he'll create with his cousin bouro and other guys versace musica and the group will be soon integrated into kibinda nkoy where he'll develop strong friendship with the other drummer of the group papy "kakol"
as he sometimes moves along with his cousins bouro and alain to jb mpiana's house he starts having strong desire to join wenge and luckily for him in mid 1996 titina asks the leaders to recruit a back up drummers as the group is set to tour a lot and during a wenge musica concert in which blaise and co will perform before wenge come on stage, werrason and jb both repeat throughout their concert that they'll organize tests at the end,and when the moment comes three drummers are tested,blaise ,the almost already proven champion djikapela and another one swalé and  leaders unanimously pick blaise not even knowing for most of them he was alain mpela's cousin  who will be renamed first blaise mignon by jb then seguin mignon coming from werra
as soon as he is accepted he is trained by titina and at the same time is taken by werrason into private rehearsals as werra is starting to ponder a concept of individual tours within the group and he'll get a chance to travel with the group on a chad tour as titina is upset by something and refuses to go and as the group edges towards the split we all know he'll rejoin jb's side by following alain
he'll make the newly born wenge bcbg's first europe tour as drummer and mbonda player and will be given a big boost in 1999 as titina allows him to play several songs at the group's zenith concert  aswell as playing champion kapangala on titanic
at a personal level this tour will also be symbolic as he becomes father for the first time but the woman "credited" the birth to another man to get french papers much to his anger
one year later in jb mpiana's solo album th he plays mbonda and drums on mohamed kaniansy plus the unreleased generique
In 2001 he will play in an unexpected double drum setup at the group's bercy concert and have his first song pacte divin which is in reality an old song of the 80's written by(now) werrason's private songwriter chela lachina and brought in bcbg by alain mpela
and as titina leaves he becomes the first drummer and at first cannot handle at all this new fame as he is often involved in fights either with musicians of other groups or with fans of other groups and also becomes one of bcbg's main men to get into those tv beefs
in 2003 2004 he almost kills a man after beating him up over suspicion of him flirting with his girlfriend which leads to him almost being arrested only bailed by a jb promise to authorities that he'd take total care of that man's recovery and to punish seguin jb decides not to allow him a song on anti terro
in order to win back jb's trust he starts gossiping to jb about musicians planning to leave starting from his cousin alain mpela he catches having a chat with koffi olomide who promised him instruments to leave jb as he does not want to join quartier latin and rushes to inform jb
in 2005 his agressive side will strike again despite having been given role of chief of discipline in hope to give him more responsability and maturity as he has a fight with tutu caludji during a concert and jb also discovers that few weeks before he physically bullied a guy appointing for a test and while caludji is suspended for a month jb is first so angry that he orders mbuta kiss to write a letter to inform seguin he is out of the group but thanks to various interventions from donors and seguin literally kneeling in front of jb his case is transformed in a suspension of 1 month and scared by what happened seguin will calm down on fights and get the song sans permission on kipe ya yo which was offered to him by bompema and in 2007 2008 when tutu caludji leaves  chef d'orchestre role is up for grabs ,a vote is organised at group reunion and seguin is on par with ficarre but jb decides to pick seguin due to him being much more media-friendly and seems to have understood  the approach he had to have at one group chef
in his first years  he'll be appreciated as a chef as he is very close to most group members and takes some new members at his house to help them settle
he'll release his third song claude itoma in quel est ton probleme and  in 2011 his fourth song eloko ya pema in soyons serieux
as time goes on his influence in the group becomes bigger and most controversial,he is offered by jb a percentage on each bcbg concert and a private care business aswell as easy access to every of the biggest jb donors and starts to consider the group like his deciding to suspend or even fire musicians without jb knowing
in 2014 while at home after coming from church he suffers a stroke which will sideline him for months and he'll almost die during a night and in the morning after that,he receives visit from bozi boziana and his wife  and tells bozi he feels he'll be standing on his feet very quickly so he declines jb's proposal to send him to india and few days after he is released and will be eased into the group and on jb 's insistance play the whole echaufemment maxi single while him seguin wanted second drummer to play as he did not feel fit enough and while he returns fully to group's activities he is more and more contested by group mates who see in ficarre and gentamicine who took his role during his absence much more suitable for the role
and that tension in the group will lead to several departure and an open fallout with gentamicine which be only solved recently
seguin is set to have another song  in group album balle de match
