He says he did not know his father when he grew up because his mother could not stand unfaithfulness so if she discovered her husband cheated on her she'd live with his kids,and that she gave all her kids names from her family to break that memory of being cheated so his dad is not a nkongolo or madimba like his name states tresor nkongolo madimba
her mother originally named him jacob but his relatives and friends though it was a too old Bible name for a young guy so they called him tresor instead
and they grew up in nice conditions because their mother made sure they lacked nothing,they had everything a baby or a teen can aspire to have and were given strict religious education and when he started growing up he became a fan of wenge musica 4X4 and especially jb and was seeing actually wenge as jb's private group until he understood later that it was a group of admins and things like that and he was also a fan of alain mpela and tutu caludji
and when he was becoming an adult he meet fally's staff member tshiba tshibambalo as they were neighbors and he had a car he was stealing from elder brothers so he was taking tshiba who did not have a car to fally's rehearsals and one day they were at home and he saw alain nzambe who was then fally's spokesman on tv and he was telling to tshiba that he thought alain was not giving fally the due promotion for the level he was breaking into and he told tshiba he could do better and he started showing him what he could say to promote and defend fally's work and tshiba was impressed and brought the news to fally who was also not too satisfied and needed a young spokesmen to connect more with the fanbase he targets
 and he was then introduced to fally's main admin eddy badiata who told him to way for him that he'll present him to his then girlfriend now wife journalist nana boduga to test him and they were all impressed  that somebody with zero media experience could dodge tricky questions so easily
then one day he got taken to fally's house and introduced to him and fally asked arent you the guy i see sometimes with tshiba,and he replied this is the first time i am seeing you,which surprised fally who expected him to react differently,more like saying yes boss its me it is  a big dream to see you and so on
and he started working and was paid 100 dollars every month while he was paying from his own pocket sometimes 300 dollars or more everymonth(every single tv appareance of spokesmen appearance is paid unless you have some favor because your boss controls the whole company because he is the boss friend) and he urges leaders to take better care of spokesmen because they sacrifice a lot for them
so he made an impact in his work with fally but was not really getting rewarded,he was stealing his elder brothers and sisters cars to give image that he was becoming more stable,but he was hurt deep inside because people were sayinh oh wow fally is treating him well he bought him a car
 and he was asked when he joined whether his priority was having a salary of making trips and he said  salary and later he heard that  on trips they could earn via donors ten times more than salary so he regretted  not having said trips at the beginning,but still he believes fally could have decided himself to reward him but maybe fally was too sure that he would never leave him regardless of how he was treated because fally saw him like too big of a fan to be able to say no to him one day
and at some point they  recorded power and djino liaki called him to say listen fally gave you a shoutout on generique power 001 and that he actually reminded fally to give him shoutout  and he was not too happy especially as on another song fally gave shoutout to the whole staff except him so he felt excluded because as stupid as it can sound shoutout on rumba gets more attention and more respect in front of potential donors and also his friends were telling him it was not normal that with the hardwork he put in fally just gives him a half hearted shoutout on a super long generique
and what worsened his case is that he was sometimes coming to concerts and even some studio sessions with a friend who went to concerts of various artists but eddy who knew he was unhappy and started showing more and more his upset reported to fally that he was hanging out with a pire petit of ferre(while the guy is close to several artists including ferre)
and at the same time that friend started to convince him to join another group as he was seeing how he was not treated with due consideration and the friend approached ferre but ferre was reluctant not wanting to appear as having poached fally's spokesman for polemic but he insisted until ferre accepted and with ferre he has also given his best to do promotion and wanted to clear out something people expect staff around ferre to dictate to ferre  how he should do but they forget that music is like a government its never ministers who give instructions to president
so he adapts to ferre's vision and does what he is asked to,like when he came he was asked to promote the fact ferre wants to maintain old school hardcore rumba with deep lyrics and he put the emphasize on that when promoting ferre,not on lifestyle,not on featurings or whatever and leketchou who throughout the part when he joined ferre will constantly tease him about fally and belittle ferre  says but you looked so much like fally even physically and he says he has it in him that when he works with an artist he goes 100 per cent to extent that he ends up almost having the image of his artist and that nowadays people tell to him he looks more and more like ferre too
and he says people misunderstand ferre's opinion about featuring in the past,people though he was totally against it while fally was constantly talking about it,in reality what ferre wanted is to prove himself first  and cement his position as best rumba singer in DRC and that he did several feats in the past but its not something too natural for him to boast about it because the thing is the most proud of and interested about is proving how good a singer he is on his own first and conquer the world with his own vbice on his albums but the fans have been insisting so that he tries another approach to do things a bit more like the global conception of showbiz(feats,awards and so on) which is why he revived his project of "international album" and that he has good surprises lined up and unlike in the past where he'd abandon an idea because a rival or one of the challengers of congolese music in general did it before him he will still do what he had on mind,because thats common in congolese music that artists reveal ideas in interviews and that another exploits it quicker and they end up being ashamed to do what was their idea
also he said its not because people have established from the start fally as ferre's rival that he has to reproduce everything fally does  in order to stand competition to him,proof is even if they have different path,people automatically compare them even on the most random photos
he is asked about fally's bercy and says good luck to him but leketchou in his typical bothers him for long minutes about " its fally who will bring back music in france" and he tries defending himself until leketchou allows him to explain more calmly that its not a problem if fally starts its for the good of congolese music so good luck to him and also leketchou compared how they do not go to USA while fally goes every year and he says its because of the conditions,promoters want ferre to come himself first or with 5 musicians since it would be  his start there and he refuses it strongly,he wants to bring his whole band structure so it had stalled but they are working on solutions,and leketchou said but fally came with his group easily so ferre is weak in front of fally and he reminded him that fally came on his own for years before ever bringing his band there
he was asked about mampata's mother and he sends condolences and he says people should get between ferre and werra,they have history and love for each other,and with time people will see changes
and he says he feels he is in a great position to give a great assessment about ferre and fally being the only man of earth to have been actively with both so he knows both very well on all aspects
and he is asked to compare and he says ferre is a bit more open in relationship and wants people around him to be well,while fally is much more self centered but he has absolute respect and admiration for both of them as artists and they deserve the glory they have had,they have not stolen it,20 years ago already they were the elite artists of the young generation in groups of the big leaders so what they have achieved today is normal and he might write a book about them one day
 he was asked about innoss b and gave him praise and automatically leketchou asked about gaz mawete knowing people have already split camps between artists and gaz roots for fally and he says gaz is a good artist but struggled to remember his song which at first leketchou thought it was purely ignoring and belittling gaz and at some point after insisting over and over leketchou sings a bit of gaz song and tresor remembers and even adds that gaz was number of on trace tv hit at some point which reassures leketchou who thought he was just ignoring gaz and tresor adds  those young artists are good but some should remain humble and not let fame get to their head(alluding to gaz snubbing ferre on two occasions )while innoss respects and is openly cool with 99 per cent of older artists
he says he has entered politics,because thats what he is studying at university,and he feels he can play a role for the country his first main concern people struggleing to eat in a country with such a big potential it hurts him a lot and he will do his best to make voice of poor people heard so that politicians stop thinking only about their bank account and care about people

Tresor does not seem to be a bad person but it is the political context between Fally and Ferre which gave him this image. It is true that at the time of Power Tresor and Fally were very similar. It's a shame for Fally because Tresor is a good spokesperson who knows how to defend and promote his boss. Tresor only asked for more consideration because he is not a yes man.

Ferre is right to first cement a base as the best rumba singer in the DRC but the fans are also right to say that he should enter in the real showbiz (awards, feats, big concerts ...) but for that he would have to completely changes team because he has very bad management for an artist of his rank

To be honest...dont you really believe that omba is koffi son.. I still believe that jean goubald knew the story and brought him back to his father. Even my wife who is not really into music saw the samething when she first saw omba..he looks just like koffi in the 70s .. I can say he his the only koffis child who really look like him if it were to be confirmed.
I have earned that koffi was secretly building a big house for him...thing he has never done for any of his previous and present musicians

Is not omly the management but also the image. I mean I can understand you having the belly if your are from the Koffi or Werra and JB generation but in this day and age you have to be superfit. For example a lot of my friends go to Fally concert and they told me that there are plenty of very sexy looking lady on Fally concert. While Ferre is getting fatter and really didn't seem to care(like he always does) Ferre will never break internationally. Not because he is not good but simply because he only care about his music and not his image. Fally is making feat withNaza, KeBlack and even outside of Congolese atmosphere artist like Aya Nakamura and Booba rounding up interviews in France (once he wonderstood that he wouldn't have any space in America. I still laugh at the time where he got completely ignored by the media I don't remember to what American event) Ferre really do not care. And I am so sorry for him because if he kept the pace of Fally Congolese music would have a really chance to go forward.
For example you had P-Square in the past and now you have Burna Boy but for Comgo except Fally and Innoss who is th artis who can really make global music? The only one doing it is Maitre Gims but except Sappe comme Jamais Maitre Gims really never did a record who sounded Congolese

As a ferre I agree on your take.
