Congolese Music / What voice you think you have?
« on: March 03, 2019, 03:58 »
For me, some people say I can sing greatly and others say my voice is a "mess".

I like to sing and I sing pretty often. For me, I would say my voice is a baritone but it can be at tenor sometimes. I am a second voice singer. I would be better to backup someone than sing lead.

I sound like Pepe Kalle sort of but I have a Franco effect with my Pepe Kalle voice but I can also sound like Madilu sort of and actually can sound like Nyboma or Ntesa at times.

But I sound most like a combination of Franco and Pepe Kalle.

What kind of you have?

Congolese Music / Papa Wemba speaks of Koffi Olomide in 1999
« on: February 16, 2019, 20:33 »

Papa Wemba made a controversial claim about Koffi before their making of Wake Up. Papa Wemba said that "Koffi Olomide told him that he needs Wemba to help him and if Wemba did not help me, then Koffi would be lost". I am sure when Koffi heard this claim, he must have lost his mind. Enjoy the interview.

Koffi Olomide is in big trouble. He may end up in jail for seven years. It was a accusation of this incident with a dancer or more dancers back in 2004.

Here are is this article.

Congolese Music / JF Ifonge speaks with Ingrid Kabongo

Unfortunately I did not get a chance to watch the whole thing but someone can translate for those who want to know what is being said here

If Fally Ipupa and Koffi Olomide did a album, one song that they must do is Ngobila. They should add the voice of Suzuki.

Fally Ipupa, Koffi Olomide and Suzuki will sound perfect together. They will sound like flowers like Koffi sounded with Josky and Madilu on this live work of Ngobila.

This will be Koffi Olomide, Fally Ipupa and Suzuki if they decided to sing together especially on the song Ngobila.

Congolese Music / One song that Koffi should remix

This song right here. He can get new animators and remake this song. It is a very good song. He has new singers and they can sing this and Koffi can sing in his way.

Listen to this song. You will dance.

When I heard the voices of Wemba and Emeneya in this video, I was weeping because I realized how perfect their voices were for one another.

Kester Emeneya as a second voice kind and Papa Wemba as a first voice kind together made a delicious harmony in Congolese music. There two men that were meant for each other. That was Kester Emeneya and Papa Wemba. Unfortunately they had too big of egos. Had they kept their egos under control, then they could have made a duo album and it would have been bigger than Papa Wemba's Wake Up Album with Koffi Olomide. I can assure you of that.

It could have a harmony like this song here

This video also shows my point.

Look from 47:10 to 56:46

Just look great it was with them together for their harmony moments.

It is so sad that Kester Emeneya and Papa Wemba did not sing together more often as they were a perfect duo in my humble opinion.

Congolese Music / Another interview from Somono

Here is the interview

Old School Music / This is good song from Marquis Original
« on: January 06, 2019, 02:31 »
Hear this love song by Marquis Original. Clara is a classic in my ears. Wimbo mzuri sana kwetu. Sasa tunacheza kabisa. Kabisa tunaishi mzuri kwa wimbo huyu ichezea.

Yes Celeo Scram makes the claim that Fally and Sankara were never "real friends" but Sankara was a strong of him, Deplick Pomba and Kadjos. REALLY? I find that very hard to believe. I doubt that Sankara and Celeo Scram could ever been friends especially that both are too aggressive. While I believe Celeo on most things with Fally Ipupa and Werrason as well as Maison Mere affaires, I find laughable to say that Fally and Sankara were not friends but Celeo was buddies with Sankara De Kunta. Nonsense. Celeo also says that Fally and Sankara are friends for publicity. Come on Celeo. Sankara and Deplick make sense together but never Sankara and Celeo together.

BTW Fally and Sankara were members of Flash Success and they make sense because they could complete one another. That is the truth.

He says this in this interview: 43:22 to 44:09


This Vincent is too obsessed with Werrason, it is very creepy.

I am going to do a little controversial thing. I have been listening to some Koffi songs. I feel that they are two members that would have been perfect fit into Empire Bakuba. I know one QL member did sing with Pepe Kalle who was Laudy Demingongo. But they are two QL members that would have fitted well into the music of Empire Bakuba and be great with Pepe Kalle's smooth voice.

They are three people. Here they are.

I would say Bouro Mpela, Suzuki 4x4 and Modogo Abarambwa. These men would have fitted well under the style of Empire Bakuba. When I listen to their vocals, I wonder if Pepe Kalle was a little more ambitious then he could have gotten these men into his band because they would have added a more youthful element into Empire Bakuba especially when Wenge Musica was on the rise during the 1990s.

With Suzuki, he could be the middle singer with Blaise Matadidi in a song like Mwana Mobowa or Djouna's song Keba na Mopepe, because Suzuki would have made the songs have more breath into the vocals with Blaise's simple high vocals and Pepe Kalle's strong baritone vocals or he could sing low if he sang with Djodjo Ikomo and Blaise Matadidi or German Kanza. Suzuki could have been a great fit for Pepe Kalle and Empire Bakuba.

With Bouro Mpela, he would bring in a more softer version of Evoloko Jocker because Pepe Kalle loved Evoloko's voice (I don't know why since his voice is a joke at best). Yes there was Desouza Santu but Desouza sounded more like Evoloko but with a little vibrato. Bouro would be able to sing the high notes with more softness in a more controlled than Evoloko could have ever had dreamed of. Yes Bouro's voice can be a bit raspy but with Pepe Kalle, it would have been more controlled. He would be a great fit sing high with the middle range of Djodjo Ikomo's middle range with Pepe Kalle's lower range. Think of songs like  Saravejo Continue and Lisola. Bouro Mpela would be the greatest fit for Empire Bakuba.

With Modogo, he is much more a lower range or a high bass or low baritone singer. He would make some Pepe Kalle fans happy because some argue Pepe Kalle would be better singing the middle or slightly high baritone than the low baritone that we were accustomed with him. That is where Modogo would fit perfectly. He has a little more smoother voice than Pepe had and has a more finessed vibrato than Pepe had. I think he would be great as a the low range singer with Pepe in the middle with German Kanza as the high range man. Think of the songs like Guy Guy Madimba and Chou. Modogo would have been a excellent fit for Empire Bakuba.

What do you guys think?

Pepe Kalle did a few songs with Bozi Boziana. BTW they were members of Papa Noel's La Bamboula. They sounded very alike and yet made memorable harmonies. Enjoy them here.
