I am starting a series called: Who should have been bigger stars than they are.

This is for everyone to present. It can be an individual dead or alive?

I will start this now on the next post.

Congolese Music / Reddy's new song is good
« on: April 12, 2022, 03:08 »
Listen to Reddy's new album. It looks like Reddy is preparing a new album. This song Jeancy Mayasi is classic. I suspect that Reddy sings in choir with Luciana Demingongo and Djanana.

It has influence from OK Jazz's song Tangawizi which was a Papa Noel song towards the end of the song.


I think Werrason should either kick out Makaba or Sarah Solo because it is clear that these two will never care for one another. SMH

Lately I have been watching this video non stop from the older days of Extra Musica. I love the song also. Cri du Coeur from Oxygene. This song has great harmony with Hermann Ngassaki and Oxygene also. I notice that Roga Roga is at the front. It is clear to me, this was the sign that Roga Roga was coming to dominate like he is now.

I don't why but I have been having dreams of Fally Ipupa and Roga Roga singing together. It sounds so good in my ears. Also recently Roga Roga has been singing Fally's praises. Then not long ago, Fally Ipupa performed as guest in one of Roga Roga's show.

There is chemistry singing wise with these two briefly.
Also recently there was a interview with these two men.

Do you guys that Fally Ipupa and Roga Roga do a duet album. For me, it is a yes. What about you guys?

Congolese Music / Jf Ifonge has a good song with Solange

Jf Ifonge made a good song here with journalist of Soliel TV named Solange. I must admit this song is very good.
I must admit, it is good.

JF Ifonge has not lost his dancing skills. Good job JF.

This song is a classic. I love the vocal solos of Koffi Olomide and Sam Tshintu. I wish Koffi and Sam had harmonized on an additional vocal solos. Their voices would have melded well together.

Paty Mbengani claimed that the Wenge men used to borrow clothes from Defao during his years in Choc Stars. Paty Mbengani was a big fan of Defao.

Congolese Music / Do Akongo worked with Pepe Kalle apparently.

I got a commentator telling me that Do Akongo worked with Pepe Kalle on his 1993 album "Dieu Seul Sait". He said that he was the composer of Pepe Kalle's song Loin Des Yeux

If true, what others songs did he compose and did he play Rhythm Guitar on any Pepe Kalle song on Dieu Seul Sait (God only knows)?

I wonder how Koffi Olomide felt about Do Akongo working with Pepe Kalle?

Congolese Music / Ado interviews Koffi's brother Tutu Roba
« on: October 31, 2021, 01:02 »

Ado talks to Koffi's brother Tutu Roba. He is mentioned in many Koffi songs. Here he is trying to defend his brother.

I am a big fan of Franco and my name comes from my enjoyment of Franco's music but I want to say like every great artist, there are errors. Franco made quite a few ones. One of them was bringing back Kwamy into OK Jazz after Kwamy attacked Franco over money issues on the song Faux Millionaire.

I mean after all, Kwamy decided to sing with Tabu Ley.

Franco responded to Kwamy with two songs. Chicotte and Course au pouvoir.

These songs are brutal towards Kwamy Munsi.

For some reason, Franco decided to bring back Kwamy into OK Jazz after 1968 or 1969. While it was not all bad, Vicky Longomba was very upset and it would lead to Vicky leaving OKJ in 1971 (WorldService report). It was said that Simaro was behind in bringing back Kwamy Munsi because he never liked Vicky Longomba and wanted to be closer to Franco. Remember at the time, Franco and Vicky were the leaders of OKJ with Franco being president and Vicky being vice president.

Franco did manage to make a memorable duet with Kwamy doing a propaganda song for Mobutu Sese Seko

But it was clear that Franco did regret in my view how he brought back Kwamy into OKJ since he lost his close friend Vicky Longomba in spite that Franco did a Africa Jazz takeover into OKJ with Josky, Ntesa, Ndombe, Diatho Lukoki, Djo Mpoyi and Wuta Mayi. The reason I personally believe this is because he decided to replay Course au Pouvoir at Ivory Coast concert in 1980.

At this time, Vicky Longomba left music and became a full time business in the Zairian Music Association. When Vicky Longomba had Lovy du Zaire from 1971 to 1974, he did get us a Franco copycat in Syran Mbenza.
BTW Syran did a tribute to Franco which was done in Soukous and it was Franco if he was a soukous guy full time.

While it is true that Franco went on to be the legend we know today, I think Franco would have been better served if he kept Vicky Longomba for a little longer. Like I said, if Vicky had stayed, I am sure he would have left in 1975 and then Franco have a complete takeover. That is my opinion only.

Some good news for once. Ferre Gola got Bill Clinton and Celeo Scream together for a dinner.

Cappucino in this video says that Heritier never stayed to promote him during their time together in Wenge Maison Mere. Oh Wenge drama.

Congolese Music / Koffi Olomide works with Ninho: Hercule
« on: September 06, 2021, 03:29 »

In spite of autotune, the song is somewhat ok for me. Hope you like it if you can.

One feud that should have never arrived or come to be. It is the conflict between Koffi Olomide and Werrason. These two men should have done a duet or a duet album together back in the late 1990s or early 2000s like JB did with Papa Wemba.
Looking at this video makes me angry.  >:( >:( >:(

It is funny  ;D ;D ;D but it is also disgusting. I can understand Koffi Olomide having problems with likes of Kester Emeneya and Papa Wemba but why with Werrason. Why would Koffi and Werra get into a war. I mean Koffi and Werra were close during Wenge original era. If I am not mistaken, Koffi is a godfather of one of Werra's daughters. SMH, Koffi and Werra, why did you two had a fallout in the first place. SMH.

Can anyone explain to me and others what was the cause of the conflict between Koffi Olomide and Werrason?
