Welcome masta. Boni ko

Haha, from his Gabon concert. He was so damn drunk that night it was crazy  :D

My uncle knew the person who drove him to hospital when he died. He was living there under a fake name and was limited in his movements, as he had a contracts & bounties on his life (Kabila administration predominantly) and was getting progressively very sick.

He had a personal doctor and lots of stolen money but there was nothing he could do. I don’t even think he went to his father’s funeral, if I remember the funeral footage correctly.

Mutu mabe!!! As people would refer to him. He and the DSP (special police protection) did anything they wanted and kill people like nzinzi. Basically he was short and ugly so he had Napoleon complex. The only time he looked innocent (beginning):

"azo tuna yo... c'est n'est pas musicien"   :D :D :D
This is how parodies are supposed to be lmao. He literally got all of them, Koffi, Wemba and Werra especially.

Can someone explain to me what the Ngulu(Pig) Affair was? I remember it being something in the early 2000's dealing with our artists.

We had all of Siatula's VHS tapes, Kombi ewuti poto is a classic!

Basically, the Ngulu "pig" represented all the people who were listed fake band members to get passage into Europe in exchange for a payout. Stuffing the pig is stuff the band with imposters. Early on it would be just a few people, but as they were getting away with it early on they got real greedy, which raised red flags to EU authorities. They would pay Wemba $3500 fee for entry in Europe via aeroport CDG Roissy & Brussels.

When he got arrested in Feb 2003 we all thought his career was over, as every major media outlet made a report about it. At the moment of arrest he was smuggling 15 people guised as Nouvelle Ecrita members.
After he was released from prison late 2003 and had his Zenith, he was extradited to Beligum after to answer for the same crime. The Ngulu affair scared the sh*t out of every artist to the point they were willing to set aside polemic and show solidarity.
Late 2004 he recieved 30 months suspended sentence with his previous 4 month imprisonment credited, meaning he walked free. He got lucky in the end.

Belgian court said 200 Congolese entered Europe illegally via Wemba, meaning he made something like $700,000 gross profit over many years.

So much wisdom, yet equally as funny. As blunt as an artist will ever be, no sugar-coating anything.

"Quand nous avions créé ce monde des artistes, nous étions à deux. Si ce n'est pas lui c'est moi, si ce n'est pas moi c'est lui"

Regarding the stiff competition at that time: "Il faut beta Zenith plein, Olympia plein, Bercy plein, Stade de Martyrs pleiiiinnn!!, okenda pe na Japon, okenda pe na Etats Unis et na Canada.... partout! et puis okoma pe na Chine.... Corée (Korea)... po gagner" ;D ;D ;D

Gaspard Love pushing him with questions comparing him with his colleagues, yet managing to do proper journalism. Rare today.

How does the Congolese justice system work? Because Bercy should have a bail hearing. And on what evidence is there if actually arresting Bercy and that he was the drive?
Only thing I know there aren't life sentences if I am not wrong maximum 20 years, anyway man, Bercy killed a guy how can you say Free Bercy

Kiekie, some people love the music too much. Like R Kelly fans

(3:10-) & (6:11-)

The album that was too good for Koffi’s & QL’s sake. Of the thousands of Congolese albums I’ve listened to over the years, I can comfortably say this the best sounding one, overall. When i play it on cd with home stereo it sounds like I’m sitting in the studio.

You know your lineup is stacked when you got Ramazani on mi-solo, Fofo, & Tyson and can alternate between Titina & Cambodge. Ridens Makosso on reserve

No touchling  ;D

Does anyone know how old Bercy is? I'm curious to see how long it's going to take him to be mature or if the boat has already sailed.

He was born in 1988, so 29/30. His mental age seems to be much younger though

It always amazes me when non-dedicated artists have better sounding albums than serious artists. Compare this album to something like... Affaire Ya Tonya Tonya.

Bébé Kerozene was also an atalakou on this album

That song he copied Wemba, Emeneya. But I don't know the language. From what I heard of him is that he is a comedian. Also like mbuta likasu?

Yes, a very well known artiste-comedien in Europe. He was doing funny but very good tribute/remixes of the legends mostly in Lingala. He also did a funny comeo in Madilu’s Bonheur “assistant sociale”

Another thing about that time was if you were absent from Kinshasa from a long time (no internet), it was very easy to make false rumours that an artist either died from AIDS or was arrested in Europe regarding illegal immigration.

Side story:
That was the basis for Koffi's hit songs "Ngulupa (The Relevant)" & "Dieu voit Tout" that directly ended rumors that he died from AIDS. It was even reported that his mother believed the rumors and was very distraught. He once said in the interview that was the watching 80's hit show "Dallas" when a friend told him that his family thought he died from SIDA.

After that he decided to base operations in Kinshasa from Henriquet/Elle et moi/Golden Star era onwards. He would record in Paris, hold concerts, then return to Kin instead of staying for months on end.

Didn't note this until "Niggaz With Enjaillement" posted it. Zero inspiration  :D

"Quand Cristiano marque le but il saute comment ?" (1:06) "When Cristiano scores a goal, how does he jump?"
The edit is funny:
