The Triple Olympia-event was official, but Felix Petit had money problems so the administration of Olympia decided to cancel the event (music promoters have always to the rante before x date, otherwise it will be cancelled). They postponed the event to August 2002, but Felix had then problems with the materials, so they postponed it to January 2003 which also got cancelled. So later on he ended up by letting Koffi perform at Zenith de Paris.

This would've been crazy! Even if it was just for 1 day. Imagine the effrakata live sound at Olympia with arguably the best QL crew? There is so much we all missed out on. Smh

Also didnt he perform at Zenith twice in 2003? I hope those get uploaded to youtube some day.

Yes, the first one was in April 2003 just after releasing Affaire d’Etat and the second one in December 2003, being the first Congolese artist based in Kinshasa to perform in Paris after the ngulu-affaire

Sorry for my ignorance but who is Felix Petit?

Felix Petit is a musicpromoter who comes from the French West Indies and who used to organise big events for Congolese artists in Paris. For example Ememeya’s Olympia & Zenith were organised by him. He wanted also to let JB Mpiana perform at Palais des Congres-de Paris (not mistaken with the one of Montreuil were Koffi, Roga and Jessy Matador performed) in 2002 as first African artist, but it didn’t happen because of JB asking to much money.

That so reminds me! Remember when Werra was going to perform at Olympia likewise? What ever happened?
