This is a average song but he has a memorial hook where he says "where you are leaving me and where you are abandoning me" but the animators were not given room to give their artistic expressions. That is what kills this song.

Hmmmm according the late Edo Nganga, musicians like Josky Kiambukuta and Paul Ndombe, he would often not pay them well or not pay them which forced them to become gigolo’s.
There might some truth to that but remember Josky and Ndombe would return to Franco. Franco had his flaws but he always respected Josky, Ndombe, Ntesa and others. Now with Edo, it looks to me that Edo and Franco had a fallout. Why did Vicky did not become OKJ during the early days of OKJ or Edo himself? I will always wonder.

Thank you so much Archos. We will do well here in spite of corona virus and racism.

Werrason wanted to make his singers known, but Madilu wanted to be he only star and liked to see how his musicians were suffering. He didn’t care about performing at Zenith, Olympia, etc. He just wanted to release his albums and please musiclovers with his songs.

Madilu would often abandon his band without money when going on tour in Africa, going back to Europe and those musicians fighting on their own to get back in Kinshasa. It’s sad because his band was full with talented artists like Pathy Moleso, Fofo Le Collégien, Volvo 840, Adricha Tipo Tipo, Babel, Rio Kazadi, Jeannot Ngidingongi,Mardorchee, etc.

That's very harsh, but it explains a lot! So Madilu was a bad hearted man? Or is it safer to say that his time in OK Jazz made him greedy when he became a solo artist?

I heard Franco rarely paid his musicians and members stayed loyal because they played for passion more than money.

Franco was someone who respected his musicians and appreciated his talents unlike most leaders. That was also true of Pepe Kalle. That is why Djodjo Ikomo stayed so long, as well as Elvis Kunku, Doris Ebuya, Kinanga Boeing 737 and Djouna Mumbafu. They knew that they had a leader with deep authorities.

Franco and Pepe Kalle were the best leaders of their ages. They were the ones who respect for their musicians.

Congolese Music / Franco MASSU (lyrics to English) 1986

Franco's song Massu

I am not perfect with Lingala but I got most it so I will try my best as I can.

Lyrics

Jolie Detta's vocal solo one (repeated)
Massu azalaki kotambola ehh (Massu, she was walking)
Tozalaki na misato na gout (It was three of us with taste)
Toyebanaki na masolo ya mokili (We were known in world's stories)
Tokabwanaki pona nini ehh (Why we separated)

Jolie Detta's harmony with Franco (repeated)
Matongi, eleka biso na mbeka (Slander, It passes us from a sacrifice)

Jolie Detta's vocal solo two (repeated)
Eloko ebomaki kicomrade (Something killing friendship)
Kaka Songi Songi Soki Nazwa ngai moto (Only gossip when myself gets a individual)
Eloko ebomaki kicomrade (Something killing friendship)
Kaka Songi Songi Soki Nazwa ngai moto (Only gossip when myself gets a individual)
Akotuna ngai, apesa ngai nini (She will ask me, what does he give me)
Akotuna ngai, lobi nalambaki nini (She will ask me, what did I cook yesterday)
Akotuna ngai, lobi nalataki nini (She will ask me, what did I wear yesterday)
Akotuna ngai, kolula mobali ya nini (She will ask me, what man will I desire)
Massu, tala kaka moto okotonga (Massu, only look at the person you are connecting which is used in this context of mockery)


Jolie Detta's vocal solo three 
Massu, tozalaki kotambola na yo (Massu, we were walking)
Evandele ngai na makambo (It sits me with problems)
Makambo ezanga moto na makolo (Problems don't lack a person with legs)
Okumisa ngai mwasi ya nganda (You honor me as a bar woman)
Massu, tala kaka moto okotonga (Massu, only look at the person you are connecting which is used in this context of mockery)

Jolie Detta's vocal solo four
Massu, tozalaki kotambola na yo (Massu, we were walking)
Evandele ngai na makambo (It sits me with problems)
Makambo ezanga moto na makolo (Problems don't lack a person with legs)
Okumisa ngai mwasi ya nganda (You honor me as a bar woman)
Massu, tala kaka moto okofinga (Massu, only look at the person you are insulting)

Jolie Detta's vocal solo two (repeated)
Eloko ebomaki kicomrade (Something killing friendship)
Kaka makambo ya motindo eyi (Only problems of the manner coming)
Eloko ebomaki kicomrade (Something killing friendship)
Kaka makambo ya motindo eyi (Only problems of the manner coming)
Otonga moto, otia ngai na kati (You connect a person which is used in this context of mockery, you put me in)
Ofinga moto, otia ngai na kati (You insult someone, you put me in)
Koseka moto, kombo na ngai na kati (To mock someone, my name is in)
Soki batuni yo, opanzi ngai na yo na nganda (If they ask you, you spread yourself from me in a bar)
Massu, tala kaka moto okotonga (Massu, only look at the person you are connecting which is used in this context of mockery)

It looks like Debaba was getting assistance from Charles Mombaya's clan because I see Aime Kanu and Mbuta Kamoka who are from the Charles Mombaya's crew.

Why did Nzaya Nzayadio went to Koffi in 1999?

8
It is a good song and he is not using autotune that much which makes me happy.

9
Why did Adolphe and Werrason participated so little on Feux de l'amour?

It should end but I am afraid that it will not end as I am sure Fally's people will approach to attack Ferre Gola more.

Thank you for submitting this video. My question is why did Adolphe Dominguez decided to follow Werrason since he was closer to JB Mpiana. What was his motive?

12
What year was Sonor recruited into Extra Musica?

13
Yes that's satellite. Dinara and mwaka also feature in other songs. This is a very good album. The generiques were overplayed before release making them sound so weak. I think Werra needs either Bercy or Ambulance back. Diego and Golbert are too average for such a big group. Jamaique needs serious competition. He has potential and is versatile but he lacks Bercy's energy.

I'm of a different opinion. I feel Jamaique is not living up to initial hype and I have a feeling Werra might ditch him soon. Goldbert is not being given the spotlight he deserves but so far he's bettering Jamaique in all possible ways
I agree with you 100 percent but I don't think Werra will dump Jamaique because he is a Bill Clinton copycat and we all know that Werra wants a Bill Clinton copycat for his group. Unless another Bill Clinton copycat comes along, Jamaique will be in Maison Mere for some time.

Robino is actually talented but he is too addicted to fighting with others and it will destroy his career. Ask Didier Lacoste.

I'm not gonna lie. The beat slaps hard but at the same time... Koffi this ain't it lmfao! However I'd still bop to this. I've never laughed so hard in my life!


Heheheehehe ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D
I apologize, this song is total shit but it is dancable. I don't what he was thinking.
The beats of this song is a remake from Chicotte a Papa except less sexual. It is pretty similar.
