Congolese Music / Re: SO J.COLE'S NEW ALBUM "KOD"
« on: Today at 19:40 »
J. Cole is a great rapper, I was honestly surprised when he made this verse






Talking straight and saying facts like this in USA can get you trouble, in fact his brother Kendrick got forced to remove blacker the berry from everywhere and you can find only a little live version of the song.
Anyway I like how KOD (KIDS ON DRUGS A.K.A. KING OVERDOSE) actually take a very strong position against all these pills and heavy drugs culture young people are banging these days

Congolese Music / Re: THUMBS UP HERITIER WATANABE
« on: Today at 19:25 »
How do these guys even make money in 2018 other than donors? Do those shows in Angola and Kenya really pay that well that it can be split 36 ways? Its a great idea and I commend him for that but that was needed in 1998 when artists were selling our shows and selling CDs and VHS. Now other than youtube money and donors I really wonder where else they earn the money from. Because I dont know if thats enough money to be split but what would I know.
Usually, taking Ferre's example which easily can sell 250000 copies of CD's it gives you a very good pay even if you are a musician, because in Kinshasa the life cost for living a king life and eat well is 200$ so imagine how Ferre, Fally, Werra, Koffi, etc. live.
Let's make that Jeritier does a 10$ concert in a "rich" country like Angola or In Côte d'Ivoire where people loves Congolese music 2000 people join and 20000 dollars are made let's share 5000 for the organization, manager etc. And split those 15000 tooling 5000 away for heritier into his musicians 10000:36 it is 277 dollars moltiplicate those tour for 10,20, 30 times and you will see that even musicians have a good amount of money, did you ever asked why even though Eboa, Deplick, Kabose etc. aren't the most known singers they always get quality video? Even Robinio when he just started fresh out of Wenge had already 2,3 good videos.
Add the CD money for example Ferre's 250000 sold discs for 10 dollars add tours and so on you will see that they are a lot of money, even Bill who doesn't produce quality material is a milionaire, because after all the CDs and tours there are commercials and donors money so it is a win win if you have got a big name and for musician if they do get paid

I don't like to insult people or wish them bad things, but I think that Karma it is a force to be reckon with, you cannot insult and tear down other people and esect loyalty from the so called "closed friends" usually guys like Roger Ngandu are full of yesmans who are only there for the money.

EXPLANATION AND CRIE VALUTATION

FRASOLOGIE: 8

The vocal range of this guy it is amazing and if he keep it up he could be a valid atalaku, the problem is that the lyrics are waaay too much over sexualized but at least they are funny Fabro did a really great work of finding valid atalakus, what I like about Frasolpgie also is that he has a lot a lot of scenic presence.

ARCHIEGNANCE: 8
A little bit overshadowed by Frasogie, but has better lyrics and the same scenic presence, I wish he had more space to develop his own crie without following Fras's one.

NEYMAR: 10

This guy is a genius musically him and Thierry synthe to me are competing for the number one spot on that synthe department no disrespect to Jeremy Kitubu and Cedric Guez.

VIDEO: 10

I have choosed to use this video for lyrics because it is on point I mean whoever had the idea of the video and developed (kudos to Dan Scott the director) deserve some very sincere compliments, one of the best video visually in the Congolese music if not the best

ANALYZES
Lokolo literally means the leg but in Congolese culture it is usually the word that people say when they want to dance: "landa lokolo" follow the leg literally but it means actually to dance to the rhythm or "zwa lokolo" take the leg which means follow the wave follow the dance, and it is interesting because Fabregas here along with Neymar uses the Boniomai rhythm made popular by Mabele Elisi made in modern form something that a lot of Bangala musician do, since Mabele Elisi it considered to be the king (until he was alive) of Folkloristics music, even though these seems like a dance song to get over and dance it is actually a description of a guy who goes in Pakadjuma (a very very known district in Congo) which is known for the beauty of their prostitutes, when Fras and Archie said things like "I am starting to save money" or "Love is like a bottle of sugar, Fras is saying that since he is not getting free sex by his lover/or that he avoids stable relationship, he will save money so he can go to Pakadjuma, while Archie is saying that since love is like a bottle of sugar, his love for his old lover is over so even though he still is with her, he will fuel the sugar into his love life by going to Pakadjuma, the Lokolo ya Pembe, Ya Choco, Mwundu is allowing to the fact that in Prostitutes streets like in a store you have got lot of different things you can choose, so the same with prostitutes, prostitutes with light skin tone, darksine tone chocolate tone etc.

These younger 5th generation guys are something else too sensitive ferre is older than brigade and has been in the game a lot longer than him so yes he has every right to call him his petit same with heritier and fabregas they hate being called petit but any money they call guys like fally and ferre yaya
Fabregas would never ever ever call Fally Yaya lol

Congolese Music / CHRISTIAN ÖZIL DEFENDS KAKOL

He defended Kakol and criticized Miel plus Mayi Ya Ndombe wow, what an asskisser.
You just came yesterday and you start to insult veterans like Mayi Ya Ndombe, shame.

Generique I think Cursus puting all the Zigida's parts away for traditional Cursus as well I am going crazy over Lokolo and Noveau Monde can't really say much for his solo albums since I wasn't really listening Fabro at the time, I only liked his song with Equalizer and Kimbangu

I should hav3 gone there but I forgot it was yesterday lol

Congolese Music / FALLY'S NEW CLIP: POSA
« on: April 19, 2018, 21:10 »

Hmm no.

15


Definitely Fabregas for me, I mean Werra is my favourite but I feel that Fabregas is speaking my same language, I like his diversity, he brought Ozana a religious song (even though we all know he is not religious) in an era of full sexual lyrics and then he keeps Congolese roots to his music without trying to be Nigerian or Ghanaian which is something beautiful, Fally and Ferre are great artist but I am more of a guy that loves traditional and generique songs so since Fally and Ferre are more focused on releasing rumbas (Ferre especially) I am glad when their albums come out but to me it is not really my cup of tea, tell me who is the artist that are waiting for to release a new album?
