Btw, hate to be that guy but how tall is Roi David?

Always looked like he was 160cm. Reminds me of the Nigerian twin movie stars - the one's you where can't exactly tell if they're adults or toddlers and Pawpaw....

Congolese Music / Re: Bercy arrested

Does anyone know how old Bercy is? I'm curious to see how long it's going to take him to be mature or if the boat has already sailed.

 ;D ;D

Congolese Music / Re: Extra musica 242 is out
« on: March 17, 2018, 22:43 »
I listened to this album, honestly as a huge fan of the Extra Music sound...I am really disappointed, though it should be expected. Im speaking from the standpoint of a non-lingala speaker but as musician and a huge fan of the seben/soukous. Like others have mentioned before, the sound of Extra is the same thing over and over.  The fact that this album is mostly seben sound I think hurts it simply because the beat is the exact same song for every song. If you were to run each seben one after the next you can't really tell you're on a new song. This was an album that was purely recycled Extra Music/Wenge songs. I feel Extra Music with this album has not advanced their music one bit, they've actually regressed. Nothing innovative here

From a pure musical standpoint based on the quality of the music alone and my bias towards their sound it gets a 7/10. Nothing innovative or different vs the music of today.
From the standpoint of knowing the previous work and how this album is recycled..a solid 2/10.

This album sounds like a more polished version of previous albums 100%. The sound is not bad rather just absolutely nothing new.
1.  242: This song sounds just like Sorcille Kindoki from start to end. The distorted guitar solo at the end is used in at least 5 other songs in this album and has been heard before in songs over the past. "Jesu sur la croix" The entire arrangement is the same song
2. Ingratitude sounds like a song from Wenge's Les Anges Adorables mixed with something from Shalai album
3. MM International...see number 2 and number, solo sounds like Innodation
4. Same as number 2 with "Jesu sur la croix" solo
5. Another previous rumba
6. See number 2
7. Le philanthrope starts off like and old Wenge/Shalai/Obligatoire song then he literally goes into the same solo from Innodation @ 3:15
8. Le jour sinistre....This song is the same as Chagrin plus plus..LITERALLY!. Bass line gives it away. It transitions into a Makaba ish rift at the end.
9. Drumming actually sounds a lot like one of Papy Kakol's on a Maison Mere album...cant think of the song. It transitions into a halfway solo and goes back into the "Jesu sur la croix" solo
10. Toko Suka Wapi...I had hope. But again its just and old song repackaged. They took Chagrin plus plus and put it in a major key in the 7/7 progression. Then again "Jesu sur la croix" solo at the end.


Guess the whole thing was overwhelming for him but he should have taken the guy to the hospital since he didn't die immediately. Too bad really...smh

How true is this please?

One of the rumbas where I pay particular attention to the lyrics. And his signature laugh always makes my days. Ah liwa eza moyibi!

Here is the lyrics and translation for non lingala speakers.

Madilu Systeme – Frere Edouard (Le Grande Ninja Sings about Edouard a greedy man)

1) Ha ha ha ha,
Frere edouard
A pimelaka moto ko seka na ko lela te, frere edouard
Soki ngolo ayebisi yo que ngando aza malade
Ndimela ye oh, po bango nyoso ba vandaka na mayi

Ha ha ha ha,
Brother Edouard
They share laughter and not crying
If Catfish tells you that crocodile is ill
Believe it because they both live in water

2) Butu eko komaka eh
Tongo pe eko tanaka eh
Ba mama bako lamuka na tongo
Ko luka mapa na boulangiere
Bango nde bako lamusaka biso, tongo esi etani

Nights come
The sun also rises women wake up
They go to buy bread from the bakery
They are the people who wake us up, early in the  morning

3) Ba mama ya mapa
Kinshasa a bosana bino eh
Que bino bato ba lamusaka bison a tongo
Po ba ndeko na ba soso ba bandaka ko lamusa
Biso na tongo, ba bunga oh

You, women who sell bread
Kinshasa has forgotten about you
It forgot that you wake us up in the morning
Because birds and chickens that used to wake us up disappeared

4) Nga, Diesa, na botama na nga mokolo ya eyenga ah
Yango mpe na mesana ko sambela
Mikolo minso ya lomingo
Na pokwa nga na mesana ko kende messe na nga
Po nalula nzambe eh

I, Diesa, was born on a sunday
This is why I am used to worshipping on Sundays
I am used to going to evening prayers
Because I love God

5) Nakomi na ndako ya nzambe
Frere Edoire a luli nga na miso ya bato
A beleli na miso ya ba ndimi
Ngai mwasi naye ya molimo
Na tika mibali nyoso ya misuni

I arrive at church
Brother Edouard admires me in public
He shouts in front of believers saying that I am his spiritual wife
I should leave all fleshly men

6) Na landi nanga lokuta ya frere edouard
Nakomi na ndako ya frere edouard
Frere Edouard alobi na lata robe ya molayi
Na tiya kitambala na moto
Frere Edoure okamwisi nga

I follow Brother Edouard’s lies
I arrive at brother Edouard’s house
Brother Edouard makes me wear a long dress
Cover my hair with a scarf
Brother Edouard you surprise me

7) Ah ngai, ya liwa, mawa ah Frere Edouard
Olulaki na ndenge na ngai te, Frere Edouard
Boni yo moyimi boye
Olingi ba tala nga na ndeko mosusu te

Oh me, Liya, it is sad brother edouard
Didn’t you admire the way that I was
How come you are so greedy
You don’t want other people to look at me

8) Kaka yo moko
Nayebi nyonso naza mwasi nayo
Obangaka nini, Frere Edouard
Pesa nga confiance lokola na mi pesa na molimo

Only you alone
I know that I am your wife
What makes you scared, Brother Edouard
Trust me the way I trust my faith

9) Ba ndimi eh
Eloko na monaka Frere edouard mabe
Soki ba paya ba ye ndako
To ya famille na ngai, to ya famillie naye

The thing that I don’t like about Brother Edouard
If visitors come to see us
My relatives or his

10) Oko mona Frere Edouard akomi mawa mawa
Lokola mwana ya moke ya 5 ans
Nanu azwi petit dejeuner na tongo te
Eh, ba frere na ba souer
Surtout kanda ezalaka na frere edouard

You will notice that Brother Edouard will become very sad
Like a 5 years old boy who hasn’t had breakfast yet
Eh, brothers and sisters brother Eduard gets especially mad

11) Ko meka ata senga ya sucree ten a sombela ba paya
Wana oko mona frere edouard abimiseli yo bible
Bo tanga esika moko
Et puis eloko mosusu, ezalaka na frere edouard

If you ask him for money to buy juice for visitors
He often brings out a bible, so that we can read it together
Another thing about Brother Edouard

12) Soki akangeli yo kanda
Eza lokola moto ba kangi ye na menotte na ba police
Ah, nga, Liya eh
Nga moko nazalaka mwasi ya elongi elengi

If he is upset with you
It is like somebody who has been handcuffed by police
Ah, me, Liya
I used to be a fine woman

13) Lelo nakomi lokola safu oyo eyindi na nzete
Batu kutu ya misuni ba koma kamwa ngai
En fin, nayebi te
Soki ba frere nyoso ba zalaka obe oboye oh
Ha, ha, ha, ha

Today I look like a black African pears
Sinners are now surprised about how I look
Well, I don’t know
I am wondering if all brothers behave like him

14) Na voiture nayo
Autocallant nyoso ba koma grace dieu
Na ndako na biso mur nyoso photo ya yesu

In your car all stickers say Grace to God
In our house
Jesus’s pctures are everywhere in our house

15) Na maboko naye oh
Chapelet ezalanga te, frere edouard
Yekola ko kaba, yekola pe ko limbisa baton go oh

In your hand
You always hold a rosary, Brother Edouard
Learn how to share, learn also how to forgive people

16) Kake ebataka likolo oh
Ebomaka nango bato nyoso te oh
Tango mosusu eko boma mobali
Etiki mwasi na bana

Lightning strikes in the sky
But it doesn’t kill everybody
Sometimes it kills the husband
And leaves the wife and children

17) Mabe toko salaka o se, eko futamaka o se
Bolamu toko salaka o se
Eko futamaka o likolo
Frere Edouard yekola ko baba
Yekola pe ko limbiso bato eh

What goes aroud comes around
Good deeds that we do on earth are rewarded in heaven
Brother Edouard learn how to share
Learn also how to forgive people

Le grande ninja alobi yo oko sambelaka te,
eza boye te, cette probleme individuale… instrumentals.

 Thank you so much Bro.

Would really like to know where Koffi Olomide, Felix Wazekwa and Blaise Bula are from.

Wazekwa is a Mukongo (Muntandu a subtribe of the Kongo-tribe), Koffi Olomide's mother is 50% Sierra Leone, 50% Mutetela and his father is 50% Nigerian and 50% Ngbandi. About Blaise Bula I don't know some say that he is Budja other say that he is a mukongo

Wow@ Koffi's ancestry. I know some people who go to DRC for business and Koffi would host them whenever they are in Kinshasa. Especially if he hears they are from the Yoruba tribe of South-West, Nigeria so I was very curious about knowing his roots. Thank you Mr Mvulusi.
