On behalf of Southern Africa Koffi Olomide and Awilo Longomba were the most influential this side and Extra Musica. Funny thing Werrason is even behind

1)Koffi Olomide
2) Pepe Kalle
3) Kanda Bongoman
4) Awilo longomba
5) Arlus Mebele, Sakis, Werrason

Fally got popular because everyone remembered him from Koffi, and its from 2010 they are the only 2 Congolese who had successful conerts in Zimbabwe, Werrason flopped.

Yeah I had not seen this but was award ceremony, you can check all performances here everyone was hype, you can tell by them screaming even before they start singing lok....... Despite this being a rock solid performance, during this era Congo was Africa's darling. Check Awilo's performance where he gave Mandela his award.

One thing I have learnt from today's threads (Thanks to you all) is that we should seize comparing these guys, they are all legends in their own way and our facts in comparing mostly base on our preferences.

I was really touched to see that video of Werra holding (Ferre, Celeo, Bill, Heritier, Ndombe, kakol on drums) that itself is a huge incomparable achievement imagine how successful those guys are today

Look at koffi most relevant since 90s,charismatic, creative till today...... His product Falky is one of the richedt and most influential in Africa, has a group with more than 35 people producing hit after hit

JB_Mpiana has a group full of old age men, they trust him, they have a good life through his leadership.

The list goes on......... Where else in Africa can you get this.......... Yes there has to be someone better than the other but I think those are just moments and preferences

It is the same in all over Africa depend on which generation you are, I can put this way

1. Kanda Bongo Man and Pepe Kale, pioneers of Kwasa 1989-1990S
2. Aurlus Mabele and Sakis 1990s
3. Awillo Longomba 1994
4. Wenge Musica, Extra Musica and Kofi and Defao (1993-1996)
5. Werrason, Jb Mpiana and Kofi (1998-2005)
6. ferre and Fally (2007 to present)

I can tell you those who danced Solola Bien in 1999 do not know Kanda Bongo Man, and Solola Bien and Loi was the most danced generics in East Africa , no one has broken that record, followed by Etaj Major and Pentagon.
Felly and Ferre have not been able to make the whole of Africa dance, I don't know why

Yeah this one is true, I argue to learn and understand what I don't, I have...... Thanks a lot.

I don't think there will be anything like Loi again and also I think its:

Ferre 2007-2013/14
.
Fally 2007 - present

Ferre hasn't made much impact with generiques recently

Generique wise Fally outshines Ferre 100%, I am sure that is the reason why Fally is more popular than him.
