Thanks for the info I wonder if they had a contract of the agreement or the donors just gave the money in person?

Talking about Lidjo Kwempa formed his own group and recorded an album somewhere in 1996 with the help of Alfred Nzimbi.

I'm surprised that Papa Wemba never wrote a song.

Full Option was duo album only with Pepe Kalle and Papy Tex. Dilu Dilumona did not participate on that album I guess things started to turn sour for them.

This is the last album of Pepe Kalle, Dilu and Papy Tex singing as a trio from 1972-1996.

This whole album is heavily influnced by Victoria even Marie Paul's voice sounding like Emeneya.

Wenge brouggt to Congolese music something that Americans call HYPE, simple as that, the only song that can stay in Wenge history well, maybe Nicky d? But for others are good songs with great arrangments, but if we check Werra most of his songs on solo are rewriting of Franco's songs, especially on 7 Jours, JB is basically making the same style.but modernized of Zaiko, and Ferre, Fabregas, and other Wenge alumni are always using songwriter and chasing guys of past era lacking originality, Fally too even though he is not Wenge, Ferre is a new version of Carlito, Fabregas a mixture of Koffi and Mabele Elisi while Heritier still have to find his style, I think that after the Wenge era, especially the BillCeleo duo, musicians just saw music as a quick way to make music without thinking about leaving a legacy or making something historical, guys like Koffi, Papa Wemba, Madilu System, Franco it is rare to see them again in this modern era

Hahaha that's not true. Wenge 4x4 have many songs who will stay in the history. Mulolo, Kin E Bouge, Voyage, Mon Ami Coboss, Kalayi Boeing, Coco Madimba, Surprise Kapangala, La Verite and Daddet Autant.

Legends of the 3th generation all used songswriters. Many songs of King Kester Emeneya came from Kikwit. Papa Wemba is known as an arists who never really wrote a song and he wasn't ashamed about it. The same thing for Grand Kalle who was always using songwriters (one of them was Tabu Ley). Alot songs Tabu Ley recorded in the time when he was a solo artists weren't even his. He was also using songswriters. People started discovering that the artists of Wenge 4x4 when Felix Wazekwa came out with then all ghostwriters also wanting to start a solo-career and succeed like Koffi Olomide (who just started beefing with Papa Wemba from 1993, saying that Wemba has to thank him for his solo-carreer after having written 90% of his songs in the 70s). The first artist to do that was Pascal Poba. If that thing happened in 70s with Tabu Ley and co then it would be a scandal.

Reddy Amisi who's seen as the best songwriter ever has songs who were orginally written by Viva-guitarist Ping Pong Tshamala (R.I.P.), Lidjo Kwempa and musicians coming from Kikwit. But he's lucky that people coming from Bandundu have not the same mentality like those of Kinshasa. Reddy Amisi himself gave his elders Koffi Olomide and Papa Wemba some songs who were written by himself.

Off topic, Ping Pong passed away since when he was a good rhythm? :(

20 years today I listened to Bakuba Show my favourite song of Empire Bakuba along with Johnny Bitoto, Dadou and Tika Makanisi.

I think along with the kick and hi-hat at the same time.

Bill Clinton looks so angry.  ;D

He used to look that way if he was sitting still. Jdt used to do the same thing. Many Baluba look that way. My uncle also looks like that. If something doesn't please he always says "c'est la wonte" with that Tshiluba accent.

On camera they're happy but off camera different emotion.

Bill Clinton looks so angry.  ;D
