Title: Werrason - Chasser le Corona (Clip)
Post by: JV “Gladiator” on June 26, 2020, 22:31
Was anyone even aware that Werra dropped this video 3days ago and view wise it’s a struggle. This guy needs a new marketing team. The loss of ADT Yanki Mpuyi has hit MM badly.

It is not the death of ADT Yanki Mpuyi but it is the constant 12 game Werra played in the years kicked put Ferre, Bill, Celeo, Heritier, Brigade, Roi David,  etc. The quality level drops people start to get fed up (me) to see costantly new faces and the fans go away. Fally, Zaiko, Ferre, Koffi and evem BCBG to some extent secret is that they keep a stromg identity amd go for it, while.in Wenge is always the copycat Bill atalakus and bash everyone who makes something different (Lobeso) from that or bring in the guy who can't sing and teach him to sing so we show tht Werra is a big formateur. Results. Except from Formidable and Parking generiaue the album flopped Ngando got only 60 k views and Innoss and Fally are holding the game. Werra must understand that time changes people.can not see the Bill copycats for 20 years and support you.

Wow I'm shocked at the amount of views it has, I didn't even know it came out. Werra and MM use to be the kings of marketing JV I think you're right the loss of ADT has effected them a lot.

It seems like they lack direction moving forward as the old formula isn’t working no more and they seem to not have a clue how to move forward. Werra is all of the place and I also noticed Sankara is less in the seen promoting Werra’s music. Speaking of Sankara, he’s a close friend of one of my mate  and he’s preparing a acoustic/song kind thing.

Werrason seized to take his craft seriously some years back. 1)The formidable album cover  2)Nonsense lyrics 3)This video you can see the camera man in some shots.
Personally I feel like this song is not bad if marketed people will consume it. He will retire soon.

Parking and Firmidable have over 1 million views each. This is a simple COVID 19 song which Werra has not bothered marketing. Views can be faked, it is no big deal.

I think monib and yanki mpuyi were indeed a great loss to Werra but he’s marketing team and band are still in tact. He just needs to work with better producers from my understanding formidable is the first album he entirely produced by himself.

Having millions of youtube views especially regarding this genre of music can be an exciting thing for the some people especially the so called connected generation. Congolese music is uniquely African and therefore a high budget video or even many views may lead one missing out on alot of great music that is being churned out by everyday by our talented congolese artist. I don't know about others but for me just taking some time to listen to the audio versions of music makes me digest and appreciate music more. Watch videos and listen to the music but you tube views?.. naah they can skew ones judgement and thinking. As always good stuff from Werrason

Formidable is a very good album. It only came at a very wrong time as its release was shortly followed by COVID 19. I was checking Werras videos with the golden generation, their views are way below Fally or Fabregas video released some weeks and a month ago. I think the old guys have grown out of the hype thing. There is no money in these views or videos. Right now they are more focused on private business while dropping songs once in a while. I personally would not blame them. Music is now just one way of keeping their names going and maintaining connections not that it gives them money.

Not really bad for my liking. However, the Bill Copycat has taken a toll on Wmm for so long.

Not only on WMM but 99.1% of bands in Congo. Every group has their Bill, Ekokota, Djuna or  Somono. These type of atalakus are energetic and entertaining but I find them annoying.

You don’t know much about YouTube then if you think there’s no money in views,  if you monetise your videos you make money from views, that’s why artists care about views because they make money from it.

Yes. Everytime you stream (only paid streams the only apps who pay for free streams are Spotify and YouTube) a song of mine in whatever store I get paid a bit of the revenue of the commercials money or the user subscription money

Yeah there is a lot of money in those views, I think these guys are ignoring this and technology will out grow them, even some big concerts they look at artists views on YouTube before hiring you....... In everything we do in life numbers matters,people want to see your influence cause art is done for money and attention mostly.

Yep but the real money are and always be in concerts. I know for a fact that streaming pay but bro if you have the luck to make a conceet especially in Europe and in the states even if you are a local musicians you can make 200 dollars per show. A first timer in Italy here if he can show he has a bit of following can ask 200 euros. If he has like at least a 1000 people he can easily ask for 10 k and don't let me start with the sync deal for movies or the rights that you hold when you deposit your in Sachem or SIAE for Italy

Above all, credit to Wenge Musica Maison Mere for being consistently active over the years.
Atleast once in a while they have managed to drop something here and there.
