Old School Music / Another one from the Archives - Stage Marshall
« on: November 20, 2017, 17:49 »


This is a recording from the Old Voice of Kenya ( Now Kenya Broadcasting Corporation)

Orchestre Les Mangelepa were ruling the airwaves :



Bwamy Wa Lumona is the bearded guitarist wizard.

Bandibanga Wa Tshilumba (KaiKai)  is the lead singer on most of the Songs

Notice the Dance and the footwork - Michael Jackson had not even gone solo and they were showing his moves...

Apologies for the poor sound quality, I think the recording was not from the original studio works. Hope you can tell the quality of the horns in those days.

Especially in the first minutes, I have recognized the voice of Awilo Longomba, but I don't know much about the guitarist Diblo Dibala why he is so popular in terms of views even though the video is not the best in quality and creativity?

The Early 90's belonged to them: Arlus Mabele and the Group Loketo

In that group Was Arlus Mabele, Diblo Dibala, Jean Baron, Sahlomon, and Awilo Longomba was their Drummer.

After some time, Diblo Dibala broke off to from Matchatcha

On Koffi and QL, Give me V12 Any time....

In my opinion this album was on teh very height of the Ndombolo craze and took the Africa music secene by storm.
On musical creativity and perfromance though, I rate V12 above this one.

Other Albums worth mention are Maggie and Faux..  (Enough I sound too old already !! )

Thanks Matebu.

You are right, King Kester was  one in a million.

I wonder what happened to the Victoria Dream Team Dream Band after his demise. I read a few posts about Jolly Mubialai and later saw one of the singers auditioning for Werra....

Any date this dun does it for me....


One has to give Kester's Production crew credit for professionalism.  The sound quality of his Olympia and Zenith makes very good listening.

Anyone know who was that guitarist being introduced just before Ata Mipaka in this show?

He plays a mean one...

I once had this on the DVD player as we drove home from a trip, and as we got home my wife insisted that I pass the gate and drive round the block to the shopping centre for some groceries. when we got to the shaopping centre parking she would not leave the car as Mabala commision was playing.

Later she confessed she had no shopping to do but wanted to hear the rest of it..... ::)

The song brings heat from start to finish


Too bad mokuwa mbongo had no choice but to give into the rhumba album format after this album

Indeed this is Fire...

Zimamoto in Swahili is a Fire engine. Presumably they expect one to call it after hearing and dancing to the song.

Congolese Music / Baby and Dede
« on: October 21, 2017, 17:52 »

I have always wondered about these two songs, one by Josky Kiambukuta and TP OK called Baby
And the second by Zaiko Langa Langa called Dede.

The chorus in both sound very similar, but the name baby is replaced by Dede.

Any old connouisers in the house have the details to share the background?

Josky and TP OK :




And Nyoka Longo and Zaiko Langa Langa (Version 1) :



Remix done in Avis De Recherche :

Congolese Music / Re: THE GREATEST ATALAKOU BATTLE EVER
« on: October 15, 2017, 17:18 »
Roberto Ekokota vs. Nono Atalakou Mombélé "L'empereur". Wenge Musica 4x4 BCBG vs. Zaiko Langa Langa


The orginal atalakou vs. the hottest atalakou of the early 90's. Roberto was way too hot to handle so he won by popular decision. The crowd fanning him and throwing money while he's performing ;D ;D

It's so nice to see how happy everyone was here and having fun. This is the happiest I've ever seen Werrason on stage

Heh, Heh heh!!

When it is your turn it is your turn!
Judgement day has never been so clear for the original atalaku.
Roberto was on Fire...

Congolese Music / Re: ONCE PRIDE OF EAST

Ken speaking of Swahili music can you please help me understand who is this band and if they built a legacy?

Mbilia Bel is right, the body needs rest and good food this is why you see people live until their hundreds and athletes dying at 100 too, drinking and smoking are the last shit you need to drink just water and good food

Its my first time seeing this, have no idea who they are. They are not from East Africa, In fact they are playing copyright, their Swahili is like from the East Congo and the lady looks Rwandese or Burundian. The message at the start of the song!!! lol.

@ Ken Bilele :

This is another similar song by Black Blood that was also very popular back in the days.
The tune sounds very similar to a number by the Kenyan group - Sauti Sol  ( the one they Perfromed for Obama)

Not sure if you could recognise some phrases because of the very strange swahili ...


This was also a very poular hit with Voice of Kenya General Service back then.

Yes indeed strange Swahili but I ask again, are you the Blackest Man in Black Africa? Kindly confirm.

Ha Ha !!

Not sure I heard you the first time, but that title belongs to Fred Obachi Machoka....

This band was real entertaining. They were so creative. I would love to know if they were real stars during the time of TPOK.


They were truly good. 13:17 One day such great works shall sell like diamond but sadly they would not be there to enjoy it.


This is a recreation of the classic " Rumble in the Jungle" World Boxing championship fight between Mohamed Ali and George Foreman that took place in Kinshasa.

The fight promoted Africa in no small way, as the build up to the main event there were music shows graced by all leading African bands and the late Great James Brown, who met and gave Kiamuangana Mateta 'Verckys' the nick-name Mr. Dynamite.

Trio Madjesi was destined for great things but unfortunately they had not reckoned with Franco and Tabu Ley, who considered themselves the lords of the Kingdom, and soon the band was no more..

I can compile an article on this short-lived band when I get some time...

These were the Days!!!
