Today marks the 36th anniversary when Koffi formed one of the greatest (in my opinion) groups of all time Quartier Latin!

Their debut album was released in 1992, with the last album to date released in 2006


The group gave us many classics and also was able to present us talent of many individuals for example: Fally Ipupa, Bouro Mpela, Willy Bula, Sam Tshintu, Lebou Kabuya, Suzuki 4x4, Modogo, Soleil, CNN, Champion, Kerozene, Brigade, Felly Tyson, Rocky Blanchard, Babia Ndonga, Eric Tutsi, Mboshi, Somono, Do Akongo, Fofo Le Collégien, Cambodge, Mamale and there’s so many to go on loool.




Also not to forget guys that came from other groups and helped Quartier Latin reach bigger heights for example Beniko Zero Faute, Montana Kamenga, Depitcho, Ramazani, Ferre Gola, Titina, Mbetenge, Deo Brondo once again there’s so many names.

Looking back there was never any single bad Quartier Latin album and there’s still a debate of where each album ranks as the best. We also were gifted arguably the greatest chorus group of all time of the Magie and V12 team which consisted of Suzuki, Babia, Eric, Modogo, Willy and Sam.



With the groups backing we got given the famous Generique of all time Loi for Koffi’s solo album, along with Effrakata, and Rond Point which are all dance floor Anthems





With Do Akongo composing the CLASSIC Rhumba Sens Inverse which is also a wedding classic usually for the first dance


Quartier Latin took Koffi to another dimension and he was able to reach new heights with the group with successful Europe tours and playing at mystic halls such as Olympia, Zenith 6 times, and Bercy




Also not to forget the countless successful African tours and concerts in Kin




With Quartier Latin winning the best group at the Kora Awards in 2003


Aside from that we also have a couple of Quartier Latin offshoots for example: Quartier Latin Academia who released their debut album Sanction which was a huge hit and had proper Quartier Latin sound, same with Quartier Latin Integral who released Volte Face that was also Quartier Latin sound.
There was a lot of musicians that left and took the Quartier Latin sound with them to use in their own albums.
Koffi himself left a message towards all his former musicians and dancers thanking them for their service


Happy Birthday Quartier Latin and thank you for the impact you gave to our music! Post some of your favourite Quartier Latin songs on here

This quality is rubbish, but the song itself is catchy

He used to be a donor from Luxembourg and Koffi, Werra and other artists used to give him shout outs. He was also a family friend, RIP Vieux

I’ve always been wondering what it would sound like, especially the song that Koffi has planned featuring himself, Fally and Ferre. Would there have been better Sebene and Generiques ? And I’m sure the musicians would’ve had more vocals. I would’ve loved to hear how they would’ve sounded in Bomengo.

It’s crazy how literally every singer that participated in Danger De Mort there’s no vocals of them in BEK, even those that stayed like and were still credited like Montana, Shella, Jypson, Junior, Asso. The only one that participated was Arca Dinheiro despite having his vocals deleted in Danger De Mort

He animâtes on both of these Sebene by himself, he sounds so different to his normal singing voice, sounds like two different people.
