Z1 International wasn’t a flop. They went to Europe and their first album was a huge succes in Brazzaville with the dance Tchekele, getting then the award of “revelation de l’annee”. Things went wrong when Regis Touba left to form his own band. Then Durell Loemba on his side started to lose all his important musicians Levyson, Rav4 & Kerson Saddam who all went to join Extra Musica Zangul. Durrel didn’t had the same support like Roga, so he had to do some jobs in Francs to be able to finance his band. That’s why he lost it towards the end.

He’s just correcting Guyguy Fall & Roga Roga about the history the way Extra Musica got founded.

Wow, I thought it was just Extra Musica International and Zangul that toured in Europe! So what caused Durell Loemba to leave International? And was Regis Touba ever popular enough to justify going solo like Guy Guy Fall?

There were leadership issues with Quetin Moyascko which made him leave along with Regis Touba, Pinochet Thierry and Cyrille Malonga who had all important roles in Extra Musica International.

Regis Touba was already very popular when Super Helico came out, getting the nickname Grand Tigre. In Z1 International he was like a leader, since that a singer while Durrel Loemba was a guitar player.
