Congolese Music / Re: REVIEW- FALLY IPUPA AT THE APOLLO....

I remember at one of the African Music Forums there was one guy, forgotten his USERNAME, he once said this KO-KO-KO-KO-KO-KO-KO Song is the beginning of the Wanabe Fally Afropop star. We all buried our Heads in the sand.

Haha, that’s vieux Grande Prête PC Mpondolo. He called back in 2004-5. Miss that guy

Highly doubt that was Mpondolo as he was not a diehard QL fan. I’d put my money on Haha Le Prof.

As for the show, I was going to sell drugs to attend the DC show because my wife wouldn’t let me put it in the budget. Glad I didn’t bother especially if he’s still promoting Tokoss, that album was garbage. He must’ve thought that R. Kelly feature was going to get him further exposure but Kellz career was beginning to wane at the start of the MeToo movement in America and then the Lifetime documentary and subsequent arrest by the CPD and then Feds, Fally should let that era go and disassociate himself. Kings get knocked off the throne and younger guys like Fabregas are waiting.

You’re right bro, however, Papa PC criticized him for becoming a R&B singer after ko ko ko

Ah Fally. It's good that this review is coming from someone as neutral as @Matebu. I have always said it's one thing to do one or two cross over songs (so called world music) in a rumba album but it's another thing for someone who gained fame for a certain genre to completely abandon it for another. From where am standing, it seems to me that Fally was not interested in releasing a rumba album after Tokoos he was basically forced by the hard core fans that's why he did that Control album but still goes on promoting songs from Tokoos album whenever on tour. So I guess people gotta get used. Sad to read such reviews from someone widely regarded as one of the leaders of his generation. The only thing going for him now is that his direct competitors are not in a position to tour places such as Europe so he has an edge.

Yeah, it’s just unfortunate. I’m at the point where I just want to listen to good music doesn’t matter who. Not going to waste my time trying to like what I perceive as bad music

Fally is just waaayyy too full of himself - I felt it’s gotten worsewhen I briefly met him. I think to a degree higher that Koffi or Wemba, because they had to really prove themselves. Not saying Fally hasn’t, but he’s definitely didn’t go through the hurdles they went through

Of course, we all know this, but the affirmation in real life just leaves a bad  and lasting impression. I still remember meeting him for the very first time in 2001 during Koffi’s US tour in NYC. He was a quiet shy guy then.

Masta @CM the review is coming bro, kiekie

Actually the guy is from Europe (I don't remember if from France or Belgium) and gome back im Comgo to be the guard of Werrasom and now to be his singer. I don't know what's wrong with people.

Yeah, that’s crazy. He’s a bigger Werrason fan than you, kiekie

Is it me or does the crowd look dead in this pic?

Exactly as i stated. The vibe was completely off - too many people standing around.

I see myself in the second row looking disinterested, kiekie

It’s a USA tour.... this review is based off of one show... I’m sure with Bercy he has to put his all into this performance.... Most US promoters for the African acts don’t respect African artist, almost like a brush off; sadly... I’m sure when he performs in Cedar Rapids some bullshit will happen with the promoters and organizers.
Its the artist who has to perform. The promoters do not tell a musician how to do a show. He needs to up his game.
Exactly. The promoters have nothing to do with how the artist’s performance is run. His Washington DC show was also lackluster
Where’s his answers to our questions?

Coming shortly bro. Lost motivation to post after the disappointment of the concert kiekie

I'm glad I never decided to go to one of his concerts. I want to hear sebenes like the old days. That is sad. Especially for $200.

I paid for second row seats then the MC  said everyone can come to the front next to center stage and stand before he got on stage, which made me think “why the hell did I pay so much for these seats”. Never again.

Next time I want to see Ferre, Héritier, or even Fabregas perform here with the same opportunities they’re not getting. Below are how concerts are supposed to be organized

My cousin told me the EXACT same thing. I’m worried about the Bercy concert now especially if he selects the same lineup. Looks like Jdog called it right


Bro, Bercy will be a another waste of a venue. His creativity limitations were on full display last night. I’m probably going to sell or get a refund for my ticket

When you go to a concert and end up liking the artist less than afterwards then there is a huge problem. He’s lost motivation and wasn’t even trying.

I also got annoyed when he went on and on with the El Marabiocho... el picici.. and so forth nonsense. And if you’re asking the crowd « Est-ce que ça va » after every song it means something is not clicking.

For a while I used to wonder what Koffi saw in her, but now I think long hair really suits her


also she never really took holidays after birth or things like that, i remember sly saying in past years that he suspected her of being pregnant due to some signs he was right,but one question comes to mind
 where did cindy post that given that koffi forbids her any social media
She did put on weight a few years ago which showed and she probably sent that picture to someone and it got leaked

Yeah, I remember Sly’s post exactly when he said she has the cheeks of a pregnant woman, or something to that effect

Please note, I tried not to sound like a “hater”, but the very concert was just disappointing overall. Just a lack of creative effort and professionalism from a big star like him. Waste of an iconic venue

Like the concert, my time meeting him for the first time in a long time was cut short. Thanks Garry Iwele for the link up. I actually had the question thread open to ask your questions. Will give answers to he very limited questions I asked in the morning

My god... if I knew I was going to a Tokoos Live concert in acoustic with a skeleton F’Victeam band I would’ve stayed home and not wasted $200 and 5 hours.

Weakest concert I’ve been to for a big star by a long shot. Him giving a birthday shoutout to Koffi made me missed Koffi in his prime - he didn’t disappoint his audiences. Too much people standing around for a Congolese concert. 

The concert actually started with an instrumental of Sweet Live for 15 minutes (I kid you not) because he was running late. No sebene until 6-7 songs after, which was Original - don’t really count that as a sebene either.

The sound was poor as if none of the instruments were tuned at all. The solo was completely inaudible and Fally’s mic wasn’t working when he first came on stage.

The concert was abruptly cut short at 23:15 - incidentally with the Droit Chemin sebene playing. He said a quick bye and left. Some women were disappointed because he didn’t play some of the songs they wanted.

Since the sound was bad Im not going to upload clips on my YT channel like I did his last NYC concert ls 2 years ago.

Two positives:
Arnaud Madruma did a good job on drums and some of the women in attendance were extremely fine.

I mean, just look at who he selected

Do u guys really believe this?
I don’t

The funniest thing about this is one would be lying to themselves if  they said “oh, maybe Cindy has a husband we never knew about and this is not Koffi’s child”
