Sagesse Très Très grave. HBD Mokuwa Mbongo, the most under-appreciated artist of our time

I agree with you. HBD Monstre.

Congolese Music / Re: THE ORIGIN OF MOKOLO NAKOKUFA
« on: September 13, 2018, 11:52 »
That’s not true. Btw its Faugus who wrote the song for Tabu Ley. The story about how they came on the idea to wrote that song is here.

http://www.mbokamosika.com/2017/09/l-histoire-de-la-chanson-mokolo-na-kokufa-selon-faugus.html

Faugus was inspired to write a song about the death, because of a friend who was ill and about to die.

Before i agree with you,..

Please advise origin of this song



Advising on the origin of this other one will not make him right, he may not know Dezo but we're just trying to learn from one  another. My point is NAPENDA NIPATE LAU NAFASI was produced long before Mokolo Nakokufa. Then the message in Mokolo nakokufa is different from what Kilwa sang but the instrument is the same.

Then did Ley borrow the sound from Kilwa?

Kilwa Jaz Band from Tanzania were the originators of the song under the name of NAPENDA NIPATE LAU NAFASI.

Then Le Seigneur tweaked the message and made it legendary.

I’m not feeling this. I almost feel bad for him the way his solo career flopped rather quickly

I totally agree, he wasted this lady's time.

They all wasted their time...especially the editing person.

Lol!

Congolese Music / Re: KABUYA - LINGALA FACILE (OFFICIAL CLIP)

Not a bad effort but am seeing ascenario where Zakle bought a Samsung J3 phone gave it to his kulunas with a directive to look for Kabuya from anywhere they may get him and shoot the video. They went and captured him at his popular den while enjoying with his frinds and forced him into this video!!!

This is good.

Lol he's only held back by his status otherwise he would give it a thorough dance.

Before I give advice, two questions... Is it your first time visiting the country?

Are you looking for a scenic, nice trip or the authentic DRC experience? Sound like a silly question, but the country is as miserable as it gets in all common parts of cities it pains me to say ... the poorest people you’ll ever see, garbage everywhere and associated smells, foods that’ll make you sick for days because it’s so unsanitary, etc.
It is my first time actually it will be my first time in Africa and I think I will rent an hotel since you know how Congolese families are when they know.you live in Europe, I wish to see the cool parts of the country, you like Daisy Simonini (Donor of JB'sdaughter) did when she came there, only see the good parts

8 Things to Remember:

1. Assuming that you're Congolese-American, keep in mind, you will ALWAYS get visitors.  Even from people you don't know and they WILL ask you for money. Be prepared for that.

2. Make sure to carry minimal cash.  You're going to need it to pay people who do services for you. ESPECIALLY when you leave the airport into Kinshasa.

3.
Your hotel room is not your hotel room.  Yes you may have paid for it, but remember point #1, you will always get visitors.  Your family members may even come and spend the night without your permission and there's nothing you can do about it.

4. Be sure to tour the city with a family member that you know and trust. 

5. Always drink and brush your teeth with bottled water.  Don't drink or eat anything unless it's packaged or you know what it is or what's in it.  Obviously for sanitation purposes but for other reasons I won't get into.  (Trust me on this).

6. American street smarts are different from Congolese street smarts. Keep your eyes open and always be vigilant.

7.
Congo is an "election year" right now so tensions are extremely high.  Be sure to let the US embassy know that you're there in case you need to be evacuated.

8.
There will be some instances where you may want to experience night life, concerts, night clubs etc.  Seeing that you're in town, your may family/friends want to share that experience with you and most of the time they won't have any money.  Be prepared to pay their way.

My post may sound harsh but there's a bit of satire in it.  These are situations that happened to me while I was there and I do plan on going back in maybe 3 years.  All in all, have fun and be safe.
Wow, I am Italian/Angolan/Congolese and I think the welcoming will be the same, I hate to do it, but I will not inform my Uncle and his family in Kin, and since Kin is having a lot of gangsta I have chosen to go to Lubumbashi or the Swahili part, in Haut Katanga I will try to eat my food for as much as possible.
I will go there with a lady that is a Swahili speaker and has been there before so I am fine with that, the problem I am fearing is that someone might Robb me or getting spiritual attacked, I think I will find some church to go to and for the cheques asking for money I honestly don't know how to handle it.
I don't know if there is an Italian embassy in Congo but I think I could not visit if it is because it will be surely located on Kin, for the nightclubs I really think I will go there but I will not go for concerts especially La Zamba and so, my trip will be one week long and I am planning 5o do it next year from July to August, I am making this trio because I think that it is important to understand where you come from even though I know I will not.like some things I need to go there thanks a lot for the advices to you all

I think there is good in informing your uncle. August next year is 12 months ahead you can make money to entertain your uncle plus your cousins back home. Congo is in a stage that will not last forever, one day it shall rise and I can smell it from far. If I were you, I would be more interested with opportunities Congo can offer more that good scenes to visit. Congo has endless opportunities for you to think about. If I'm honest with you, you will enjoy life and be more valued in Congo than in Rome and any other major cities of Europe and America. Start thinking of how you can come up with an empire in Congo when finally it gets peace with itself.

Congolese Music / Re: KOFFI AND FALLY ON THE SAME PLANE
« on: August 06, 2018, 20:53 »
You what amazes me.. is no matter how big of a star Fally is, Koffi always makes him look like a pire petit - whether it's in a photo op or a concert visit.

Not sure if it's good or bad, but interesting

He always humbles himself in the presence of Koffi which to me is what should be the case. I love to see how musicians react when they meet Gen. Decal, despite the fact that he's no longer active they highly respect him. They always bow before him and call him papa.

13
I would buy this guy's story because since he got saved he's remained true to it even though life is unbeatable for him.

14
The other sympathisers now you see some of the reasons why this guy is mostly rated above your man? He is trying everything to connect with his fans across board. Your man dont care!! He's so closed to himself and to the people who understands that he doesnt want to talk much.

15
Zambians don't know Koffi and also the people who were organizing his tour are not those types you would be interested in....for example Mark Malabama his promoter in Zambia is a kind of man known for womanizing a buttering his girlfriends.

I guess if they don't know Koffi then they don't know anything Congolese music.
