Wally died apparently because of an overdoses, after swallowing a quantity of drugs when the police was following him. There were people who accused Bozi who sacrifcing him (like often happens in Congolese music, when a musician died in a band), because he just rejoined Anti Choc after returning from Kinshasa.

I think that if he released the VHS of Titanic earlier, that he would have easily won the kora of best central african artist in 1999. Because Titanic was a big hit in Africa that year. It was Bozi Boziana who won the price in that edition.

Yes, he was nominated in 2005 for the Kora Awards, his band Wenge BCBG was nominated as 'best african group'. But he didn't show up and sended Kisindjora & Blanchard Mosaka there. It was then Les Marquis who went away with the price of 'best african group'.

He was also nominated for the Kora Awards of 1998 with Feux de l'Amour, going there with Alain Mpela & Tutu Calugi. But in his category of 'Best Central African Male Artist' there were also Awilo Longomba with Coupe Bibamba, General Defao with Animation and Koffi Olomide with Loi (who came there with Depitcho & Bouro Mpela). Koffi with just a few votes away from General Defao. My dream is to see that footage of Kora Awards 1998 which was filmed by MCM Africa, with them all doing playbacks.

In the VHS Coupe Bibamba of Awilo, you can see Awilo jocking with General Defao & Koffi Olomide in a bar at Sun City before the awards and Awilo dancing with Alain Mpela & Tutu Calugi in the videoclip of Gater le Coin which was for a part also filmed there.

Getting rid of Blaise and Makaba that early was one of the most stupidest decisions Jb ever made
I agree. It would have been nice to see them battle Maison Mère with that team

Yeah, Imagine a fara-fara concert of Wenge BCBG and Wenge Maison Mere on the same stage in 1999 at Stade des Martyrs or Bercy. But they would surely refuse. The guys of Clan Wenge are from another planet. Back in days, Tabacongo wanted to let Wenge El Paris and Wenge Musica4x4 on the same stage, wanting to put alot of money, but Werrason, JB, Makaba and Makaba all refused.
Reason why they refused? Ba banga ki?

I think that they feared Marie Paul's powers, because he already done crazy things with his nkisi (getting all the public of them away when they were performing in Bandal after coming back from their Europe-tour of '92, getting all their public when they performed in Nsele and the public screaming "Roi Pele, Roi Pele" like they were hypnotized)

It could also be that they feared that Marie Paul would hold a eternel supremacy over them, in the case that they would lose the fara-fara, while he is a guy who comes from their band. So they could have refused it for these reasons.

Changement de fréquence disappointed me so much at the time, it was the Skol Vs Primus war.  Jb had just released Bongolowayi and Wazekwa had just released Primus ngwassa especially since we had just had Tindika Lokito and alerte générale.  it is not for nothing that werra did sous sol very quickly.


in concert, bazonkion had a bright future especially after nkila mogrosso ... but papa wemba's dedications were very noisy ... already in somo trop, i find that he spoiled the work with his "FLEURY MEROGIIIIS" and others.  I forgot Bendele!  especially that bla bla bla made the buzz, I remember on msn, everyone had this song ... la chicote and Skol Mandradamada were horrible, he had tried to copy DJ ZEMBE etc.

Sous Soul came in December 2006 and Changement de Frequence came in August 2005. Werrason released Sous Soul because Bralima wanted a generique dedicated to them for christmas and new year, it had nothing to do with Changement de Frequence. Changement de Frequence was released in the same period like Bongolowayi of JB. Primus Ngwassa of Wazkewa was in 2004.

Werrason didn't want WMM to use all their energy in Changement de Frequence, because they were still working on Temoignage. That's why he used to call "Changement de Frequence" photo sans flash. In the same generique he said (ezalaki nango mise en  scene) to refer to it.

from 40:35 min

I liked Changement de Frequence and Bazonkion made people dance (the last days of Wemba's succes). I also used to like Satelite+2

For me the worst generica are Kaka Yo of Papa Wemba (there wasn't a cohesion of the way Wemba was doing mabanga with the animations and the transitions of the sebene), followed by Bendele of Koffi Olomide (I didn't get the first two minutes, it sounded really chaotic).

Btw its from Canada, that those problems started. When JB suddenly appointed Alain Mpela as Chef d'Orchestre without talking about it to Alain Makaba & Blaise Bula,.

Wow, they are monters. Traveling from Tchad to Montreal through Paris, after performing there and having to travel the next day to Toronto with the train, giving a concert of min. 4h long.

It's a shame that Wenge BCBG didn't go to Japan. That would have brought Clan Wenge on another dimension like Clan Zaiko.

The last two concerts of Fiston Zamuangana in Wenge BCBG.

lol, look the way Alain Makaba said "there isn't a Wenge of Werra or a Wenge of JB". So weird to hear Makaba say that Titanic is ready for end June, but they ended it by releasing it in november 1998. Makaba is so harsh, refusing a possible integration/return of Werrason & Didier Masela to Wenge BCBG.
