Title: Was Bikunda part of Anti-Choc?

So I was listening to Bozi Boziana's Jeu Muke, and as it neared its end, there was a certain bass lick which I had heard before in a few songs.

Just today, I looked up the Discogs credits for Dany Engobo's Premiere Classe, which the last song is from, and Jean-Louis Bikunda was one of the credited bassists. Seeing as he was a rather prolific session bassist for a few years after leaving Defao's Big Stars, I see that Lofombo-esque lick as one of his trademarks. Disregarding that, the bassline in each song sounds similar. Returning to my main point, this begs the question.

Around the time Defao dissolved the Big Stars, did ya Bikunda briefly join Anti Choc, as his bandmates Kabose and Theo Mbala had done so?
