Congolese Music / Re: SO IT IS REAL?

kiekie, the 1700's Benjamin Franklin glasses are so convincing that he'll be a competent leader  ;D ;D

At this rate I nominate Kabuya for Député National so he can represent all the chegues

I never knew Papy Cocaine was in Kumbela.

Papy wasn’t in Kumbela. He’s my cousin. His only band was Zaiko. Before that he used to sing in little bands. He joined Zaiko in 1997 and started to directly to work on Nous Y Sommes with animation like Nazelaka muana akola and many others.

Guys, I got Canne a Sucre mixed up with Papy Cocaine for some reason. He then went to Pirette Adam's band for many years with Alvarito and Champion

I love this album. You also got Champion Kanda, Kady Bass, and Papy Cocaine in that squad.

Sakoko did a fantastic job reinterpreting the original King Kester sang. Others would be scared to take on that challenge

One of Aime Buanga’s practices that hindered his ability to become a big leader was that he didn’t dress the part like other leaders did. In this clip, the singers are better dressed than him

Werra's popularity in Angola since day 1 is almost mythical

@masatomo

Most of the time the beefs were instigated by group leaders and staff to control the group. Being that a lot of these artist were paid poorly, if they all had solidarity then they would have likely left Koffi long before Danger de Mort.

Similar to how Les Marquis was started.

Bro, that generation of QL (Fally and co)  had the best living conditions of any band  by far since Wenge 4x4 TT. If any of them try to bring up salaries- I reference in this video where they were all gifted Benzes in 2000 after spending months in Europe touring. Mind you most were in their early 20's at the time coming from small and street bands. Even the dancers had some nice villas. Koffi didn't want what happened to gen1 QL to happen again during that period


In the years of 2005-7, many of them had their contracts expire and Koffi wasn't going to invest in them because they became too senior and also how Fally and Ferre left

You read my mind, I was going to make a post on him. I'm big fan of his. He's  a dedicated atakalou, but his generiques are twice as good as whatever Fally, Ferre, Hertiter, and even Bill himself are putting out in recent years

RIP. Kija Brown said she was a mother to all the founders

Congolese Music / AHH, CHOC STAR'S HARMONY WAS TOO PERFECT
« on: November 16, 2018, 16:42 »
I have yet to hear another chrous as in sync as the combo of Carlyto Lassa, Defao, Debaba Mbaki (RIP), Petit-Prince Zolandonga, and Djuna Djanana.


On top of that you got Ya Roxy (his composition), Djo Mali, and Djuju Music complementing them. Also Carrol Makamba and Teddy Lokas accompa

yes,he's now part of the artistic direction along with kibens and jeremie so he does a lot of private work with jb
since chemin de fer is on eternal update until the day it might be out

I wonder why no one poaches Fusee and Tolbert as these two are the only reliable artists in JB at the moment.

They get paid well to play occasionally, whereas in some other brands they'd be paid poorly to play at concerts a lot

Congolese Music / Re: Hmmmm so 242 is a flop in Brazzaville ?
« on: November 15, 2018, 01:53 »
People still checkin for Extra Musica? They're running on fumes at this point smh

Admittedly, the 242 album is pretty good especially compared to all Roga Rog... excuse me Extra Musica’s albums since La Main Noire. I do find myself skipping most of the sebenes because they’re so monotonous and I can’t stand États Unis’ voice. The compositions are pretty good

Congolese Music / Re: ADO YUHE INTERVIEWS PAPY TEX
« on: November 14, 2018, 02:24 »
Wow ok, this a must watch

Kiekie, pretty soon Ado will run out of people to interview because many leaders don’t want to be interviewed by him anymore because of the hot tea recent interviewees have spilt on past events
