Congolese Music / Did Werrason push Karmapa behind the scenes ?

Did Werrason push Karmapa behind the scenes? Because the album had Eric Lukasi as executive producer who used to be close to Werrason. In the album there were shout-outs towards King Tekila, Werrason's wife Sylvie Mapaata and other influent people of Maison Mere. Btw when promoting his album in Kinshasa, he immediately got a contract with Bracongo (Skol) and through Erick Lukasi's management he got nominated at the Kora Awards of 2004 as Best Male Artist of Central Africa.

I remember Karmapa once saying in an interview (with I think Ado Yuhe), that when he was thinkig about the name of his first album, Werrason said to him that he had to name it "Nani Apesa yo Permission ?" and adding that Werrason and Wazekwa were in conflict at that time. In his first album, Karmapa threw alot shots towards Felix Wazekwa.

This all made me also wonder why this wasn't the case anymore for Karmapa's second album "Temps d'Amour", about influent people of Maison Mere not receiving shout-outs and what was the reason of their fall out with Werrason ?

Was Dindo Yogo inspired by the Soki brothers to make a song about rain/water ?

The Soki Brothers made songs about different subjects such as Masanga (about the bad-side of drinking alcohol and being drunk), Nganga (which is about a jealous guy, who goes to a witchdoctor to get his rival fired from work), Nzambe Mokonzi (which is about a father that's broken about losing his child), Zamba Zamba (praising the rainforest) and Shofele (advising car-drivers to be careful on the road).

There are also rumors about president Mobutu being fed to hear only love-songs on the radio and asking musicians to sing also about other subjects which made many artists around 1975-1974 suddenly sing about different things for a short time. But I don't know if it's true.

Finally not those makelele sebenes. Wait is that Kimbangu on the lead ?

Werrason released in June 2001 his first solo album Kibuisa Mpimpa after announcing it already back in 1997 before Wenge 4x4's split. It was the most awaited album of 2001 and it was a huge succes when it came out. However there wasn't a VHS of clips released on market. There was just a videoclip of Operation Dragon which was aired on the television channels of Kinshasa & Brazzaville and MCM which was a french-television for the African diaspora. A few months later just after that Werrason won 2 trophees at Kora Awards, they finally started recording the clips. They recorded the clips with ultra-modern equipement. 6 clips along with Operation Dragon got released on VHS somewhere in december 2001/january 2002 as volume 1.

However, volume 2 never came. Only Kibuisa Mpimpa got recorded as clip, being released on a dvd produced by JPS Production called "Kinshasa Hits volume 2" along with clips of Abeba Lipordo, Fondation Empire and some tracks of Extra Musica's trop c'est trop that hadn't a clip (12 Balles, Guivano and Probleme sur Probleme).

Was it that Werrason a to busy with preparing Double Zenith in Kinshasa ? which he prepared for 2 months, him even cancelling at some point concerts in Kinshasa for a month to prepare the show at Zamba Playa. Or was it that Jean Pierre Saah wasn't motivated to put his money in volume 2 after already gaining alot of money from the album sales and volume 1 of the clips ? Or that Maison Mere being busy with touring in Europe after Double Zenith and preparing A La Que Leu Leu ?


Look Celeo's face. But on tv at that time always having a big mouth when talking about Maison Mère.
