Looking back, it seemed like he was eager to get to Monde Arabe, with the way he was previewing in songs well in advance.... He wasn't too enthusiastic about Affaire D'etat like previous group albums, despite the fact that it was a fantastic album. I also remember hearing about sabatoge that was attempted upon release.

One of the biggest mysteries is how Monde Arabe would have sounded if Next didn't go bankrupt or if he didn't take to heart Ley's criticisms. Original release was supposed to be late '03 combined with the Zenith concert.

From a pure analysis stadnpoint, I do think Monde Arabe had the biggest body of great rhumbas since V12... it's just that it took time to grow on people because of the lack of sebene.

Habi Toure... she's a beauty







They're cast mates on a new show called River Hotel, which will premier on TV5 Monde on June 25th:

RIP, the great poet and activist Franklin Boukaka who was assassinated. That song was a continental hit and the one of the biggest hits after Independance Cha Cha

Songs that make proud to be an African, like the Senegalese and Malians like to do. We're too obsessed with trying to be European that we often loose idenity. The sapeurs have influenced Congolese music culture so much, as well as those who really wanted to distance themselves from Mobutu's once mandatory abacost dress code.

There are songs like Ebale Ya Zaire, Ultimatum (sorta), but the rest is mostly bolingo or mabanga lyrics.

One of the my favorite examples (and favorite song) from Defao:


The original is just as great:

160K views in one month is very, very good for an artist like Blaise who basically went 11 years without an album

lol not good timing from him

lol, yeah the damage is done... unless he posts something with his wife and kids.

What does Adolphe have on his beard? An infection ? before, what he had on the beard was very little present but today his entire beard is touched

Keloids. He's very subconscious about it; unfortunate lifelong situation.

As far as leaders go, Defao in his prime for me.

Disgusting they snapchatted him dead in the car.... unfortuately saw it while IG. He was clearly "gone" then and there, but we now live in a "record first" society. Never heard his music, but too young man.

Matebu leave our friend bebe Jitrois kiekie,

you say koffi keeps a young fresh and but does he use them? If so who are these guys haha and these colleagues you're referring to jb and fally especially fally right?

 and I'm so happy to see my guy asso back I just pray he's used in the next album otherwise I'll riot

I'm also glad a certain someone wasn't there at the repetition......

Kiekie, yeah I couldn't name 90% of this crew if my life depended on it. And point, he rarely uses most of them outside local concerts, but at least he has those guys on call (or texto like he infamously likes to do :D ) , if needed.

Mama Candy was probably waiting up stairs  ;D ;D

Good music, but imagine being Koffi's neighbor (like Papa Cherie) and hearing this repetition at 1-2am ;D

Dead weight Bebe Jitrois is resilient

Monde Arabe (Heros National)... Good stuff.... Koffi keeps a fresh/young band, which is something that can't be said about some of his colleagues

That rainbow kid especially needs to chill with his Chicago stuff

RIP. Don’t pay attention to the current rap scene, but these young guys really need to chill with the social media taunting and flexing. There’s always goons nearby ready to react

Tchip, this is so-called music. These DJs have taken over Brazza local scene with these basement production songs
