Congolese Music / WAZEKWA'S YOUTUBE VIEWS CURSE
« on: January 23, 2018, 15:46 »
Why is it that even when Wazekwa does music of honor like this one there are still no proper views? What is Wazekwa not doing right?

Guys let's be sober with it. Why is JB Mpiana not releasing album? Is there something behind it. I don't think its normal.

Congolese Music / LM Villa Nova New clips

The negativity outshines the positive contributions that the guy brings. He's been consistent in giving his musicians pace that Fally and Ferre finds difficult.

Congolese Music / BOB AND GRACE

Thinking about the situation in Zimbabwe and what came to my mind was Koffi and Cindy. Now Agbada must learn that women can easily bring you down. Am waiting for the remaining strong men to fall.

Congolese Music / EVERGREEN NYOKA LONGO & THE ZAIKO BAND
« on: November 02, 2017, 11:15 »
What amazes me is the total opposite personality to that of an entertainer Ya Jossart is and he's managed one of the most successful orchestra of our time. Zaiko got it in their style, not much aggressive sebene with very simple and likable dance styles. Nearly everyone is dancing throughout the concert.

Can someone kindly write the history of Zaiko and this man Ya Jossart.

Congolese Music / ORCHESTRE SOSOLISO
« on: October 09, 2017, 12:36 »
This band was real entertaining. They were so creative. I would love to know if they were real stars during the time of TPOK.



They were truly good. 13:17 One day such great works shall sell like diamond but sadly they would not be there to enjoy it.

Congolese Music / ONCE PRIDE OF EAST
« on: October 04, 2017, 20:22 »


Les Mangelepa was once rulers of music scene in Kenya and the larger east Africa. My question is, do musicians lose their voice as they age or is it because of heavy smoking and drinking? The old men in there were once the giants of the mic.

Congolese Music / THIS IS WHAT WE LACK IN KENYA
« on: September 10, 2017, 14:35 »


I cant believe this is Zimbabwe!! This is coming at a time when even at Fikin we are not seeing such crowds!!! Congratulations to Werra, you've done this music proud. The outdoor performance is what we've been asking here in Nairobi but we have promoters who don't think. make one concert cheap and put it out there for many fans to attend. The goodwill is there, we only need promoters who will go extra mile.

Congolese Music / MUSIC AS A PROFESSION AND LIFE OF A MUSICIAN
« on: October 17, 2016, 14:56 »
After keenly listening to two musicians one being a good friend, I have a feeling that music is one profession with serious hidden dark power that may be natural. My friend who had two successful Benga albums has always told me that music is one stupid profession with stupid players in it that its very hard for a simple and sober man to survive in. For instance my friend tried putting up a band but was pissed off and left making music all together.

For instance he said that the most talented and senior most member of the band, in this case his lead guitarist would fail to show up for one important show and did not even bother to give apologies. At some point one musician would decide to leave with a girl friend at the middle of a concert and would not show remorse the following day. He said at some point he had to go for his musicians physically to carry them to the concert hall, then again it is even hard for the leader to know where they live.They keep changing.

He said that the life of a good musician was not easy to understand, They would act in a weird manner, abuse drugs and would most of the time would lack proper reasoning.

He said that you can not TRUST a musician. A musician he said has many faces. He said its a hard balance to have musicians happy in your band because if they are paid well they don't come to work the following day, if they are paid less they embarrass you with your donors on stage, they beg and spoil your name, They disappear with older women.

He said the intense rivalry that is always there in the band among members may break you up as a leader.

He says musicians world wide most of the time receive money that is not clean. He says most of the time what musicians are paid is not what promoters are able to fetch from gate collections if there are no corporate sponsors. He gave the case of koffi's last visit to Kenya where he was paid $100,000 and surely way above what could be collected from ticketing. He said guys with dirty dealings use musicians for money laundering. Just last week I could see that to be true with Chris Brown concert in Mombasa where he was reported to have been paid nearly 1 million dollar but tickets were only selling at 200 dollars.

Those who have been close to musicians kindly share about their personal life.

Awilo's new release. Awilo is well known abroad, you can tell with comments for this video on YouTube. He should use that platform to relaunch his fame.
