What's the story behind Didace Le Prof (guitarist) and Aladji (singer)? They disappeared just as quickly as they were introduced in the group.

Did Manzugidi Jean-Louis participate in this album? I don't hear his animations at all, maybe just the generique. May he rest in peace, I had no idea he recently passed away.

Manzuigidi had only 1 crie magie, which was in the start of the song of Magie. That ah yo yo yo-crie


The audio mixing for Magie was done in Brazzaville, the studio there were not as advanced as those in Europe. So the production wasn't as crisp as the previous album.

The album was recorded in Brazzaville and the mixing done in Paris with Philippe Guez adding some keyboard-parts and Beevans, Babia, Suzuki, Koffi and correcting some vocals and adding mabanga from people of London, Paris, Switserland and Belgium who received them well during the tour of 1994

I think that the video exist, but that its rare like many others VHS of the 80’s, 90s and early 2000’s.

Video of what ?

This album made Defao famous in Africa. He toured whole Africa with this album giving soldout concerts everywhere (Cote d’Ivoire, Cameroon, Kenya, Tanzania, Zambia, etc.). In Cabinda (Angola) he performed in their stadium 5 days in a row which is a record and never happened again to another artist.

It always had been for Koffi from 1992 until 2004. Touring whole Africa every year, concerts in Europe and Kinshasa, recordings albums every year sometimes 2 in a year. I think that the most bussiest year was 1997.

Koffi Olomide & Quartier Latin recorded Magie a long time ago before going to Europe. They recorded it during the spring of 1994. Then somewhere in August he went with for singers like he used to do to Europe and those instrumentists. They went also to Canada and the US, but Sckola had then already left the band.


Only with three singers: Willy Bula, Koffi Olomide and Suzuki Luzubu (Reminds me of El Paris Le Monde A Envers).

It's because Scola Miel left and Babia was in prison otherwise they would it record with 5 singers. They recorded it in Paris when they came there to tour in Europe to promote Noblesse Oblige and mixing Magie which was recorded in Brazzaville.

It was the best group, but they were all poor.

He was blocked in Abidjan. But he had still the faith to come in Europe which didn't happen (he returned to Kinshasa 5 years later). His dad died when he was Abidjan and they couldn't bury him a good way. He also talked about a filmproducur who scammed him and went to Paris getting money on his name by lying that he was seriously ill. He talked about how Congolese people aren't respected in other countries because of their passeport and the Congolese embassadies abroad who do nothing.

Back in those years you had alot of Congolese people living in Lagos, Cotounou, Abidjan who were blocked there after being left behind by those checkers.


With him performing there in Madagaskar, Réunion & Mayotte (who are Francophone areas), i think that he will get contracts for Martinique, Guadeloupe and Saint Martin who are in the Caraibes. It’s very rare to see in Kinshasa-based artists to perform in Madagaskar & Réunion. The last artist to do that was Bozi Boziana in the early 90’s. Extra Musica used also to perform there in 2000 with the succes of Shalai & Etat Major. Soukous-artists who were living in France were going there often.

If he was a clan Wenge artist then he would make alot of noise about it.

It was a bad choice of Lutumba to put him as president of Bana OK. But on the other side it will boost Manda Chante's career. What will happen with Wenge Reference ?

No, maybe for bandmembers but not for bandleaders like Emeneya, Wemba, Nyoka Longo or even Simaro, Tabu Ley and Franco used to do in the past. Back in those days it was very important to go on tv and the radio's. Now leaders don't even care, Fally did 1 year without doing an interview on tv and attacked journalists on a press-conference. If Franco or Tabu Ley would do that, then they would have suspended him for months on tv and radio's, because back in those days journalists had more power than musicians. I remember Nila Mbungu saying that he was almost fired, because Papa Wemba went to visit him in his office, while it was forbidden for musicians to visit journalists in their office. Because musicians were then seen as nothing.
