.... they meet a fan at restaurant and tried to get him to pay their food bill( a very very common trick until today by musicians)

This happened to me and a friend of mine last year when we met a former member of a group, Lol. I wont mention the name because i personally found him a likable and humble person despite him having been a very influential artist during his peak years.

poor gessan zakoko,he missed out instead of yondi last minute just because of adam bombole intervention while he was informed to get ready and everything
You mean Adam Bombole prevented him from travelling with the group? For what reason?

This is not bad from Mfumu yaba Ndinga. I like how it "changement de frequence". One of the guys who should have had a decent solo career. Is he the one who composed "Blandine" by Werrason?
Am also listening to this one:

it seems like the only artist(s) who won is(are) not from the ndombolo rumba universe,jean goubald won for sure and possibly lexxus legal aswell

I saw that Yves Emongo Makiadi and DJo Kabengele also stood for elections. How did they perform?

Those politicians are clowns. They always censor those kind of songs. In 2007 they also censored Felix Wazekwa’s Que Demande Le Peuple. They only know how to kill people, steal money, marry many women and buying villa’s in Europe.

I liked the songs JB Mpiana made about our society (Bana Lunda, Conseil Patcho, Courage, Feux de l’Amour, RDC, Omba & Education). I‘m interessed about the extrat of Chemin de Fer he sung in an interview with Garry Iwele, singing then “mabala ya lelo ekoma commerce....”

Not only did they censor que demande le peuple but soldiers were sent to physically assault his mother at the house he offered her(which is by far the biggest of his houses) and since it was  avoided last minute thanks to an intervention of a minister he was classmates with in france they blocked water and power supply for years until that minister became a minister of energy and solved it for his friend

Eish. That's taking censorship to the extremes. Anyway, i wouldn't be surprised given how protests are crushed with live ammunition. And this partly explains why lyrics of love and sex nature have become so common in rumba music, its because of the limited topics available to artists to sing on. Anyone who sings about other social issues affecting the country is considered an enemy of the state.

No wonder its difficult for Congolese artists to do politically "sensitive" songs nowadays. The consequences are too much to risk taking that path... I didn't know that Mosaka is also a composer.

Like title says, i read that when this song came out it was politically censored due to what the authorities deemed as lyrics likely to incite the population to rise against the newly formed government of Mzee Kabila. And who is the original composer?

Eh she's this young! I always had this vision that she should be at-least someone in their late 40s or early 50s.

Whats the relationship between the Mpela brothers and the President elect? I saw somewhere on these Congolese pages that the "Mpelas bakoma famille presidentille?"

Giselle Mpela has 2 children with Felix Tshisekedi.

I see. So easy access to the Congolese "White House".

This wasn’t the people’s choice I can tell you that...Fayulu won



His will be a tainted presidency from the beginning, he can only gain credibility if he turns around and breaks whatever agreements he has made with the Kabila regime... Same happened in Gabon, where they basically just swapped the names to make Ali Bongo win.

The word acoustic and Adolphe Dominguez shouldn’t be used together ;D

Why not for "Le chouchou de tout le monde?"  :)

lmao, Adolphe is the last person that should be having an acoustic concert, or am i mistaken?. Is it worth a watch? I’m cracking up at the thought

I think its worth it. With all his sapeur antics if you need to laugh some  ;D, i have watched only the first 30 minutes so far...
