when the artists will protect their works well and have their accounts / channels certified it will be better

Some say they (DRC artists) joined way too late to really capitalize.

Example - A quick YT search returned close to 350,000 clips for search query ”Koffi Olomide”, meanwhile his own channel has a max of 100 clips. Had he joined in ‘05-‘06 and uploaded his content from then on, things would be very different now. His own uploads would have millions of views, which in turn means profit and an even larger audience.

Then in came Fally and all he did on Libre Parcours was to remix this album.

Can your elaborate on that? Both albums couldn’t be more different from each other

Karmapa used to be in the same position as Wazekwa, but he looks to adapted to the likes of Fally, Ferre & Koffi for his new album & google advertising. It seems every time I’m on YouTube lately, I’m getting a recommendation to watch Caligula. 

The song is going to have a million views within a month and I’m happy he’s getting the attention he deserves

So sad to loose such a legend of African and jazz music

From BBC
“Legendary jazz trumpeter Hugh Masekela, a leading figure in the struggle to end apartheid and "the father of South African jazz", has died aged 78.

In a statement, his family said he had "passed peacefully" in Johannesburg "after a protracted and courageous battle with prostate cancer".

Masekela gained global recognition with his distinctive Afro-Jazz sound and hits such as Soweto Blues.

The 1977 song became synonymous with the anti-apartheid movement.

In a statement, South African President Jacob Zuma said Masekela's death was "an immeasurable loss to the music industry and to the country at large".

Zuma continued: "His contribution to the struggle for liberation will never be forgotten."

I really think it would shifted the paradigm away from Wenge MM vs Wenge BCBG rivalry at the time, especially with how good Jugement Dernier (1998) was. Son Altesse should've been among big 4gen leaders - he was even signed to JPS.

Had Titanic or Force d’intervention sounded like this album, people would’ve lost their minds. The sebenes are arguably more powerful and unique. The off-beat “lentement” drumming style really sets it apart. The sound still blows me away, waaaay ahead of it’s time. One of the rare albums where you hear every single instrument very audibly. I believe the sound engineer was Jean-Marc Bidaubayle at Studio Marcadet.

This album was recorded with fresh recruits, including the likes of Alvarito Solo "B52", Jeansan Sakoko, Kaddy Bass, and Jordan Kusa (when he was still a vrai chanteur).


Been thinking about ndeko Shamala's predicatment all day. It's just about the scariest ordeal anyone can encounter. Hopefully there's a peaceful solution and Shamala can return to his post as our benevolent "Porte-parole de JB Mpiana et Wenge BCBG"

Excuse my language, but holy shit this is a crazy situation. Let us hope there is a swift and peaceful solution. Ndeko Shamala is as calm and peaceful as it gets

I believe bill has been cursed, either that, or we can forget about getting back the old charismatic Bill.... This song is absolute trash even Werrason can sing better

Haha, spot on. Relatively similar exploration:

lol, the clips from Temoignage are so terrible and cringy, I can't even watch it.

Bullcrap .....this band died when kill bense and co joined Fatboy....the bcbg that could have excelled, was the ppu bcbg.

lol, JB can come out of nowhere with a fresh band and release TH Part 2 and you'd still call it crap.
lol are you mad? Jb with a fresh band without kibens rio jdl and seguin would make emo love bcbg again and make him put bcbg on his name again loool

I have a feeling Emo has gone past the point of no return of disliking "Bafanya Erreur"

Lol that’s my boy, he loves Werra to death

 :D :D :D explains it all, i have a cousin who even named his twin children werra and noel, madness

lol, what? ;D ;D Do they know about the guy their named after yet?

I swear Congolese and theiir children's names sometimes

Bullcrap .....this band died when kill bense and co joined Fatboy....the bcbg that could have excelled, was the ppu bcbg.

lol, JB can come out of nowhere with a fresh band and release TH Part 2 and you'd still call it crap.

Oh Matebu you're gonna piss Emo off.... ;D ;D
What about the sebene songs in quel est ton probleme? The sound in SS was horrible till this day I can't believe they put that out

We await his appearance  :D

I classify Quel est ton probleme as a single though. One of the best singles - they should just made it a full album now that we what happen to the band afterwards

Wow, undeniable ;D ;D ;D Very smart guy though.

lol, the commenters:
@marlahkumbu "Aza vraiment na mutu ya koffi"

@Ariel Arianho Mfundu - "oza na raison omba pe azalaka na mutu ndeti koffi mais jeune garçon oyo aza photocopie ya leader nayo koffi en plus alobi aza prêt pona kosala test ya ADN"

In my opinion, the last truly great BCBG sebene song from a BCBG album, as the sound is perfect. Great composition as well.

Eric Gbenye "Mobali" was one those names you always used to hear, not so much anymore

Loniatara on SS was alright, but the sound was bad.

HAHA, that’s some classic Wenge MM alumni behavior. Werra used to make Ferre, Bill and others walks miles to concert venues and pay them next to nothing despite the fact they were reason he got big.

Now we have plenty of stories about Ferre, Bill, Fabregas, etc. chopping all their money on used Ferrari’s  and houses while musicians struggle to make ends meet.
