Congolese Music / RIP DJ ERICSON LE ZOULOU
« on: February 16, 2020, 22:17 »


One of the first congolese djs to become stars in ivory coast,i would even say he is the pionner of the first change of tempo of coupe decale since its him introducing koyimbiko here which completely modified coupe decale until that wild version arafat brought when he got deported from france
rest in peace eric bosiki ngoy aka ericson le zoulou,he died from hepatitis and liver issues
his last musical collaboration i can remember is
with sam tshintu,by the way him like dj mareshal went to ivory coast after failing to join the two wenge's after split

2

He says he did not know his father when he grew up because his mother could not stand unfaithfulness so if she discovered her husband cheated on her she'd live with his kids,and that she gave all her kids names from her family to break that memory of being cheated so his dad is not a nkongolo or madimba like his name states tresor nkongolo madimba
her mother originally named him jacob but his relatives and friends though it was a too old Bible name for a young guy so they called him tresor instead
and they grew up in nice conditions because their mother made sure they lacked nothing,they had everything a baby or a teen can aspire to have and were given strict religious education and when he started growing up he became a fan of wenge musica 4X4 and especially jb and was seeing actually wenge as jb's private group until he understood later that it was a group of admins and things like that and he was also a fan of alain mpela and tutu caludji
and when he was becoming an adult he meet fally's staff member tshiba tshibambalo as they were neighbors and he had a car he was stealing from elder brothers so he was taking tshiba who did not have a car to fally's rehearsals and one day they were at home and he saw alain nzambe who was then fally's spokesman on tv and he was telling to tshiba that he thought alain was not giving fally the due promotion for the level he was breaking into and he told tshiba he could do better and he started showing him what he could say to promote and defend fally's work and tshiba was impressed and brought the news to fally who was also not too satisfied and needed a young spokesmen to connect more with the fanbase he targets
 and he was then introduced to fally's main admin eddy badiata who told him to way for him that he'll present him to his then girlfriend now wife journalist nana boduga to test him and they were all impressed  that somebody with zero media experience could dodge tricky questions so easily
then one day he got taken to fally's house and introduced to him and fally asked arent you the guy i see sometimes with tshiba,and he replied this is the first time i am seeing you,which surprised fally who expected him to react differently,more like saying yes boss its me it is  a big dream to see you and so on
and he started working and was paid 100 dollars every month while he was paying from his own pocket sometimes 300 dollars or more everymonth(every single tv appareance of spokesmen appearance is paid unless you have some favor because your boss controls the whole company because he is the boss friend) and he urges leaders to take better care of spokesmen because they sacrifice a lot for them
so he made an impact in his work with fally but was not really getting rewarded,he was stealing his elder brothers and sisters cars to give image that he was becoming more stable,but he was hurt deep inside because people were sayinh oh wow fally is treating him well he bought him a car
 and he was asked when he joined whether his priority was having a salary of making trips and he said  salary and later he heard that  on trips they could earn via donors ten times more than salary so he regretted  not having said trips at the beginning,but still he believes fally could have decided himself to reward him but maybe fally was too sure that he would never leave him regardless of how he was treated because fally saw him like too big of a fan to be able to say no to him one day
and at some point they  recorded power and djino liaki called him to say listen fally gave you a shoutout on generique power 001 and that he actually reminded fally to give him shoutout  and he was not too happy especially as on another song fally gave shoutout to the whole staff except him so he felt excluded because as stupid as it can sound shoutout on rumba gets more attention and more respect in front of potential donors and also his friends were telling him it was not normal that with the hardwork he put in fally just gives him a half hearted shoutout on a super long generique
and what worsened his case is that he was sometimes coming to concerts and even some studio sessions with a friend who went to concerts of various artists but eddy who knew he was unhappy and started showing more and more his upset reported to fally that he was hanging out with a pire petit of ferre(while the guy is close to several artists including ferre)
and at the same time that friend started to convince him to join another group as he was seeing how he was not treated with due consideration and the friend approached ferre but ferre was reluctant not wanting to appear as having poached fally's spokesman for polemic but he insisted until ferre accepted and with ferre he has also given his best to do promotion and wanted to clear out something people expect staff around ferre to dictate to ferre  how he should do but they forget that music is like a government its never ministers who give instructions to president
so he adapts to ferre's vision and does what he is asked to,like when he came he was asked to promote the fact ferre wants to maintain old school hardcore rumba with deep lyrics and he put the emphasize on that when promoting ferre,not on lifestyle,not on featurings or whatever and leketchou who throughout the part when he joined ferre will constantly tease him about fally and belittle ferre  says but you looked so much like fally even physically and he says he has it in him that when he works with an artist he goes 100 per cent to extent that he ends up almost having the image of his artist and that nowadays people tell to him he looks more and more like ferre too
and he says people misunderstand ferre's opinion about featuring in the past,people though he was totally against it while fally was constantly talking about it,in reality what ferre wanted is to prove himself first  and cement his position as best rumba singer in DRC and that he did several feats in the past but its not something too natural for him to boast about it because the thing is the most proud of and interested about is proving how good a singer he is on his own first and conquer the world with his own vbice on his albums but the fans have been insisting so that he tries another approach to do things a bit more like the global conception of showbiz(feats,awards and so on) which is why he revived his project of "international album" and that he has good surprises lined up and unlike in the past where he'd abandon an idea because a rival or one of the challengers of congolese music in general did it before him he will still do what he had on mind,because thats common in congolese music that artists reveal ideas in interviews and that another exploits it quicker and they end up being ashamed to do what was their idea
also he said its not because people have established from the start fally as ferre's rival that he has to reproduce everything fally does  in order to stand competition to him,proof is even if they have different path,people automatically compare them even on the most random photos
he is asked about fally's bercy and says good luck to him but leketchou in his typical bothers him for long minutes about " its fally who will bring back music in france" and he tries defending himself until leketchou allows him to explain more calmly that its not a problem if fally starts its for the good of congolese music so good luck to him and also leketchou compared how they do not go to USA while fally goes every year and he says its because of the conditions,promoters want ferre to come himself first or with 5 musicians since it would be  his start there and he refuses it strongly,he wants to bring his whole band structure so it had stalled but they are working on solutions,and leketchou said but fally came with his group easily so ferre is weak in front of fally and he reminded him that fally came on his own for years before ever bringing his band there
he was asked about mampata's mother and he sends condolences and he says people should get between ferre and werra,they have history and love for each other,and with time people will see changes
and he says he feels he is in a great position to give a great assessment about ferre and fally being the only man of earth to have been actively with both so he knows both very well on all aspects
and he is asked to compare and he says ferre is a bit more open in relationship and wants people around him to be well,while fally is much more self centered but he has absolute respect and admiration for both of them as artists and they deserve the glory they have had,they have not stolen it,20 years ago already they were the elite artists of the young generation in groups of the big leaders so what they have achieved today is normal and he might write a book about them one day
 he was asked about innoss b and gave him praise and automatically leketchou asked about gaz mawete knowing people have already split camps between artists and gaz roots for fally and he says gaz is a good artist but struggled to remember his song which at first leketchou thought it was purely ignoring and belittling gaz and at some point after insisting over and over leketchou sings a bit of gaz song and tresor remembers and even adds that gaz was number of on trace tv hit at some point which reassures leketchou who thought he was just ignoring gaz and tresor adds  those young artists are good but some should remain humble and not let fame get to their head(alluding to gaz snubbing ferre on two occasions )while innoss respects and is openly cool with 99 per cent of older artists
he says he has entered politics,because thats what he is studying at university,and he feels he can play a role for the country his first main concern people struggleing to eat in a country with such a big potential it hurts him a lot and he will do his best to make voice of poor people heard so that politicians stop thinking only about their bank account and care about people

Congolese Music / LOL YOU CANT TRUST CONGOLESE MUSICIANS
« on: February 11, 2020, 13:19 »


Since but na filet left fabregas he had adopted a strategy of copying what fabregas does towards former maison mere musicians since he became werra's darling among ex members, and out of the blue started going hard on ibrator and took it to another level when ibrator replied without mentioning him,when asked about his solo career not having big hype,saying he is doing music first and foremost on quality not music of having hits singing like a crying baby and having success because of luck factor which obviously but na filet saw as a personal attack
and now he recruited ibrator's main atalaku vegeta who is ridiculing ibrator in his speech for the absolute pleasure of but na filet

Congolese Music / FALLY'S ARTISTS ARE IN FRANCE

He says he appreciated werra for once talking well of ferre and that he respects werra but he had to defend his camp and people misunderstood him a lot because he was hitting back very hard so it took all attention with people forgetting who started but they are all doing their job for the pride of clan wenge
and he says combattants should let fally perform at bercy,the punition on artists only for the sad state of things in DRC has taken too much time and he gives fally idea to tell combattants he'll give them his money from concert so that they send it to those parts of congo where there are sad events which they lament everytime in their rants against musicians
and he talks about release of par hasard

Congolese Music / HERITIER'S FIRST INTERVIEW SINCE MEETING WERRA
« on: February 09, 2020, 18:54 »


He says mampata's mother was like a mother or grandmother to him always treating him well so he found it totally natural to go to funerals and that he decided on his own and nobody around him knew about it and went back to kin one day before funeral and once again on his own called his guys to meet the day after at his house to go somewhere which he did not inform them  and naty says he just knew he decided on his own because knowing music environment a lot of his staff members would be strongly against if he told them(the way fally's staff were also strongly against fally visiting koffi when his dad passed away) and when they arrived there his guys were surprised and when he was welcomed well and installed and when he went to pay tribute he did not know mampata was back home since earlier on her nephew apologised in his speech for exaucee and gladie missing due to class so he expected her to be with them so he passed  in front of her without knowing  then saw claudine kinua and talked with her and mampata's relatives and its at that moment that he realised she was there and he went and sincerely apologised to her because he was not really paying attention to faces he was focused on going  in front of coffin to pay tribute  and it was a special moment for him because he had never seen her or talked to her ever since he left maison mere,and he saw many many people he had not seen or talked with since he left and when he hugged werra he felt it(indeed werra has something strong in him if he hugs you  you will feel it more than some other people) and he was  so emotional in that moment that he did not even hear that people were clapping its when he arrived home that his guys showed him images trending on internet and he was surprised  and he says he will keep what he said to werra secret but it was a blessing for him to finally see werra and added that from seeing the images of people clapping for them while they came to mourn gave him another image than thinking beefs are what people like to see and he learned a lot from that moment
earlier on naty asked him how he copes with all the up and downs and controversies of his career, he says he is somehow lucky to have grown in a poor family without father so he's endured being down for a good part of his life and has learned to cope with it,its the nature of life that sometimes you have to cry sometimes you have to smile so he accepts it like that and about how people judge him he says even the Almighty  never was unanimeously loved so how would a simple man like him be loved by everybody,its impossible  so he just tries to be a human who does good and bad like every human and who just tries to make the most out of our short time on earth
 he also said he is fully for fally's concert at bercy because the ban is not normal,its not normal that only a category of congolese people has to sacrifice their work to  please some people who see themselves as stars or have personal issues with musicians
fally has the right to perform and  he gives example of franco-congolese hiro who performed at olympia with no problem other countries have their davido's and co having almost worldwide career at peace so they should accept having their fally's and co who do the same,since they target only born and raised kinshasa artists who come to europe and he urges his fans to attend fally's concert to prove them a point and he says it deep from his heart and if he is saying it just to please people may God destroy his career and that he has friends who called him that they'd go and burn two old cars to make police cancel fally's concert so that he is not the first to restart concerts and boast about it and he told them lets admit you block him so that he does not start,dont you see that the day i will want to perform too he could send people to block me so that i am not the first either? and that fans should support any artist who is trying to make steps forward

Like title says,like almost every of the last 5 to 10 years karmapa has announced songs titles and briefly explained the content,which did not please authorities who threaten to block his passport if he releases and things like that
in this particular case,he has a friend who got sick few times ago while he was in europe about to go back to DRC and by the time he arrived he was informed his friend was admitted in pretty much the national hospital,named after the name of mobutu's mother,and when he arrived there his friend died and he was so shocked with the disastrous state and conditions of that hospital that he decided to record a song about it to expose governement for letting people die like that for lack of equipment while the bosses of hospital and the minister himself are rich by stealing money
he should have been given a 6 month unofficial yet strict embargo to perform and record in DRC to avoid him singing it but thanks to intervention of his closest colleagues(werra wazekwa manda jb ) he did not get it
and he still is determined to release that song because he considers that he did not insult anybody,just he found it unacceptable to see a national hospital with sometimes 5 people on the same bed and on sheets so dirty that they are brown instead of white

Congolese Music / GOSPEL GENERIQUE BY CHRISTIAN BOMBOLE SOLO
« on: February 09, 2020, 05:42 »


And animation by himself

12


he says he was in kin with a project unlike journalists of fally who attacked him left right center for returning with no plan and that he went to record three songs in a short time and he is happy with the result
popol asked about the fact he seems more a singer than an atalaku these days even if with kin bopeto he went back a bit into dance music and he says he had it hard to do generiques in europe because its difficult to reunite a strong defence in europe for enough time to have strong chemistry for a great generique while with rumbas all you need is a guy like serge kabangu or pathy moleso who can play guitar and program your music and call chorus guys for you to complete the song
from his time in kin,he could see with his own eyes how press of europe is professional and press of kin is full of people who know nothing about music and who just became "journalists" as they were tired to stay at home so they are easy to manipulate
he talks as usual about lack of unity in congolese music and gives example of nigerian artists who despite competition are quite supportive of each other,for example when burna boy went to grammys many of his fellow stars posted and praised,and says he supports fally for his bercy,innoss b for his european tour,heritier who will try to perform at olympia with new album....and that himself can go for a prestigious yet way smaller in terms of crowd like new morning in paris
for him congolese music is threatened by pastors who accuse every artist to be into witchcraft,by combattants who dont want concerts,by artists themselves and their bad mentality,by fans who have a complex ...You can see fans who meet a congolese artist who has given them legendary moments but they act like they dont even know him but the same fans if they happen to see  any foreign stars are overexcited and will picture and post everywhere instead of being proud of their own artists
he was asked to react to werra saying fally fights against foreign artists alone and says werra is belittleing himself by saying that because hmself is a legend respected in africa so if he leaves all the burden on fally's shoulders its like he considers himself past it,and he adds that people should credit and support every congolese artist,not just fally, there are plenty of congolese artists winning awards and various honours all over the world people just have to be open minded and search a bit(and a lot of people also do not like to properly credit gims ,considering him like a french,knowing he'd be above fally if considered like a congolese)
and about fally he says he should not let the way he does well feel badly his ego to see himself so superior to other congolese artists and reminds him of papa wemba who had the same edge over congolese artists of meeting foreign stars,trophies,golden disk...and who when he fell from that was heavily mocked by the same congolese people who praised him and he advises fally to create festivals,in order to give a boost to congolese music as a whole,help youngsters who have talent who just lacked exposure and support and tells him that boasting against his "rivals" to ridicule them is good,but he can do much better if he puts ego aside and makes things which will even benefit his own legacy aside from what he did himself and he should not fear that if he helps people somebody will take his position because there will never be two fally's,even himself with their disagreements he knows it well that God will not transform him into fally with his career or fally into celeo
and to emphasize on the ego thing he gives example of how when he came back to paris he show big posters of fally's concert and he filmed and posted and says who knows even if people belittle him maybe two three people will go to fally's concert because of him so he finds it sad that fally did not repost it or act like he ever was made aware of it just because of ego while if it was even an upcoming artist from abroad he'd proudly post on his social media and thank
and he asks popol if he thinks he is happy with fally getting threatened by combattants and he says not at all because he knows its a good thing for congolese music to see somebody perform in a big europe hall again,yes because there relationship is not good he could have instead influenced people to block but he can never do that
most of the time for him with congolese artists its not deep deep hate but old  woman affair blown out of proportion which drag for years,or one artist who was inspired by another back in the years and once he has really blossomed is trying to belittle and dominate the guy who used to inspire him,so when the guy does not accept it it creates clash but he does not believe a congolese artist is as mean as  shooting his "enemy" with a gun
its a good thing that fally invited robinio,gaz mawete to bercy and it would be fantastic if fally takes it a step further than just picking people "because they showed loyalty to him by attacking enemies"
he goes back  talking about congolese media and the way they are mistreating some at expense of others,and gives example of when fally had that incident they did their absolute best to "polish" it and blame the fan,while if it was another artist they'd destroy him or him when back in kin he took a bath in the rain to remember childhood they used it as he is living in lacklustre conditions so its double standards which is not good,they should be supportive equally of congolese artists and he likes all his congolese brothers including fally but he hates when somebody he considers a brother misbehaves in return and gives example when he arrived heritier was not caring about him while his employees was calling so that he visits heritier at concert and when heritier finally wrote to him he said to heritier all would be different if you loved me like i love you and from then heritier was perfect until both went back to europe
he was asked about his band and said that he disbanded because he did not want grown guys who have families to feed to wait for him endlessly and at the end earn less that a plane ticket as a salary,so his dream is that he reunites with bill clinton,which is not easy given bill's personality and the fact he is himself a direct and honest person,and they from a great section of instrumentists and dancers to perform in africa,instead of the usual system of 30 singers 20guitarists to pick from
he also has a thought for one of his closest friend mimiche and regretted not having started with that
popol asked whether he could invite werra on his album since werra even accepts singing with his "grandchidren"but na filet and he straight away replies dont think about it werra does not like me( he tried to go and see werra at home but got access denied) and that werra only talked about ferre and heritier in that interview because of papy putting him under unusual pressure and it the same interview he quickly reverted to his natural self claiming he does not know celeo is there,that celeo had come with trophies...but he is actively praising fally and other artists who have not contributed anything in his career and he is not an hypocrite to play the card" of yes of course",werra is his vieux who he has a lot of respect for,and who gave them exposure and received incredible hard work in return and he cant make any more steps towards him in 2017 he negotiated with  his late brother in law yanki to meet werra in paris and even let himself go a bit into feeling by attacking heritier a bit to defend werra and this time he tried again but got rejected so he cant spend his life begging for love of somebody who seems not to like and he said in that interview he pretended ex maison mere musicians do not call him  and that he would pick if they called while he called him on all his numbers and always got ignored
and maybe werra is acting like that over little beefs(the fact celeo answered to attacks or publicly disagreed with some werra behaviours on several occasions) and gives example of jb who he also "attacked" a lot in several interviews(him and genta could not stand each other for very long so if genta dissed him musically or hit back at him,he'd hit back targetting jb sometimes) or criticizing some behaviour of the elders including jb,and he says it did not take something extraordinary to make peace,just little things like making a video to wish jb a happy birthday were enough to turn things around so he does not understand why werra keeps holding such strong grudge against some of his ex musicians
werra is their vieux they have history linking them forever so he should open his heart,he will lose nothing in doing that ,werra is a legend who has performed in all halls a congolese artist can dream about zenith olympia bercy (and says in their generation fally would be the first to  complete it if concert happens normally) and even palais des sports which no other congolese artist performed at until today,he benefited what he could from werra and all he wants is mutual respect
he was asked if he went to sankara's brother funeral and he said condolences to sankara he is a brother and he would not wish anything bad to him but he finds it anormal how people fake sudden love at funerals as if there is no problem and that he has noticed because of that people to bad things to each other with no limit hoping for funeral to produce miraculous peace while there are things you cant forget so easily
for example sankara attacked his family and also said he sacrificed his uncle who was one of koffi's bodyguards for his album but it flopped and that  its sad that his brother sankara crossed that line just to please werra because he would never claim sankara sacrificed his brother who died recently,there must be a limit when you want to diss somebody



13


He says mimiche replaced him in every group he was in(dynamic asha,super choc,empire bakuba) and he was proud of how mimiche had become a star and great bassist and he remembers one day  in paris a disagreement happened between werra and mimiche during kibuisa studio sessions and werra sent mimiche out of studio and called him,he was eating in a restaurant and he had to stop and go to studio and then played on obiang song
he hopes mimiche can be buried in DRC because for him its more understandable for old people who have kids and grandchildren in europe to be buried there because they have most of the family available for funeral while a young man like mimiche has most of his family back home
he also revealed he  got remarried,years after losing his wife,and he was really needing it especially for the kids
