RIP, the great poet and activist Franklin Boukaka who was assassinated. That song was a continental hit and the one of the biggest hits after Independance Cha Cha

Songs that make proud to be an African, like the Senegalese and Malians like to do. We're too obsessed with trying to be European that we often loose idenity. The sapeurs have influenced Congolese music culture so much, as well as those who really wanted to distance themselves from Mobutu's once mandatory abacost dress code.

There are songs like Ebale Ya Zaire, Ultimatum (sorta), but the rest is mostly bolingo or mabanga lyrics.

One of the my favorite examples (and favorite song) from Defao:


The original is just as great:

160K views in one month is very, very good for an artist like Blaise who basically went 11 years without an album

lol not good timing from him

lol, yeah the damage is done... unless he posts something with his wife and kids.

What does Adolphe have on his beard? An infection ? before, what he had on the beard was very little present but today his entire beard is touched

Keloids. He's very subconscious about it; unfortunate lifelong situation.

As far as leaders go, Defao in his prime for me.

Disgusting they snapchatted him dead in the car.... unfortuately saw it while IG. He was clearly "gone" then and there, but we now live in a "record first" society. Never heard his music, but too young man.

Matebu leave our friend bebe Jitrois kiekie,

you say koffi keeps a young fresh and but does he use them? If so who are these guys haha and these colleagues you're referring to jb and fally especially fally right?

 and I'm so happy to see my guy asso back I just pray he's used in the next album otherwise I'll riot

I'm also glad a certain someone wasn't there at the repetition......

Kiekie, yeah I couldn't name 90% of this crew if my life depended on it. And point, he rarely uses most of them outside local concerts, but at least he has those guys on call (or texto like he infamously likes to do :D ) , if needed.

Mama Candy was probably waiting up stairs  ;D ;D

Good music, but imagine being Koffi's neighbor (like Papa Cherie) and hearing this repetition at 1-2am ;D

Dead weight Bebe Jitrois is resilient

Monde Arabe (Heros National)... Good stuff.... Koffi keeps a fresh/young band, which is something that can't be said about some of his colleagues

That rainbow kid especially needs to chill with his Chicago stuff

RIP. Don’t pay attention to the current rap scene, but these young guys really need to chill with the social media taunting and flexing. There’s always goons nearby ready to react

Tchip, this is so-called music. These DJs have taken over Brazza local scene with these basement production songs

I am not racist but I don't support white people making black music, still to these days I go crazy mad when white people say shit like "Elvis the king of Rock'n'Roll" or "The Beatles and the Rolling Stones are the best band ever" without knowing they were stealing black people style, I am glad that to these days Congolese music stayed between us and I am glad it is in Lingala so white people can 't really steal it.
I am Angolan and you have seen the success of Dança Kuduro an Angolan genre who benefited Dominican and Portuguese people while Angolan singers rarely get through.

Quincy Jones recently said in interview he thought The Beatles were shit and untalented... got white folks outraged, but I was like thank you for speaking facts. I hate how they they try to shove those white bands down our throat in every “greatest all-time” list i see. All those rock albums I’ve sampled and gave a chance have done nothing for me.

As far as rock goes, Jimi Hendrix is one guitarist that has truly made go “wow”. Incredible talent, shame he passed so young

Then after 5 or 10 years a band will become famous with that style and whites claiming that they created it.

Yeah, cultural appropriation is getting worse and worse... then they make a viral sensation out of it. This video is a few years old so hasn't happened yet, but definitely will when we least expect it..... the same way Ivorian's robbed Congolese culture blind for Coupe Decale. Now folks like Arafat are adamant that they created the way they animate

The drummer's style reminds me of how Meridjo used to play early on. This is very Zaiko sounding to me overall
