Archos anyways you could expand more on why alain mpela and adolphe had a hard time? Always curious to know of they all felt the same about saddam hussein or if some were closer to him than others. What was the whole problem about anyways and how was it resolved ?

I live in the states bro and its not their fault. Most people from africa that live here are from liberia nigeria and sierra leone. Thats why african americans are not familiar with anything from francophone africa, not to mention the language barrier. Its the same in francophone countries, you probably wont find a lot of people from nigeria liberia or sierra leone in france belgium or quebec. I knew literraly nothing about the nigerian culture when i lived in france, like NOTHING. In french movies you’ll hear music from senegal or mali or even ivory coast at times but never from Liberia. Thats just that people are not familiar thats all.

Mvulusi could you expand a little bit more on why bakongos didnt wanna speak munukutuba and how lingala won the congo bassin region over. Ive always been curious about that. I understand mobutu had a lot to do with it but it seems that lingala was already the major language before him.

Also didnt know Capucino and Brigade were swahili. Seems like that group is forgotten about a lot of times. You always hear bout the Bakongo, Lubas and Bangalas/Mongos/Tetelas

Learning about the bayakas is just as confusing as learning about the bateke. The older i get the more i realized that we gave the colonizers too much power, they didnt even speak our languages and yet they classified us based on languages, observations and other means that they just were not prepared for. They classified us from one another without knowing much about us and then stuck us together hence why we have so many conflicts in africa. Because the country boundaries are similar to a forced marriage.

We’re all against tribalism but its a fact that the colonizers took different groups and hunched them together. Just seen a thread about how Fally is proud to be Mongo and I always hear that. What other ethnic groups are our other superstars from? Just inquiring not trying to start any wars ndekos  ;D

Yeah I would definitely be looking forward to a movie on Franco. Im waiting on new documentaries on zaiko and papa wemba. I seen both of the ones on papa wemba i believe a more recent one would be nice. Never got to see the one on Zaiko, its on amazon for sale just not sure how good it is. A documentary on Wenge would be nice. We shoudl get inspired by hip hop, they release new tupac and biggie documentaries every 3 years. We’d have more than enough to talk about and cover I’m sure. An inndepth look into Koffi’s life would be nice as well I’ve seen a few 10-15 minutes ones on french channels back in the days but the guy definitely deserves a full blown 2 hrs

Also which songs do we know of today that were mostly animated in kikongo ?

Exactly and I dont understand the language so I always wonder if they’re rhyming, telling stories and maybe even  just speaking in code at times ? Does the whole population understand those animations ? Because If I remember correctly I remember reading that Bill used to animate in 3 languages

Could some of the ndeko help decypher some animations for non lingala or kikongo speakers ?

Documentary thats coming out in 2018

Crazy thing about a month ago I was just gonna make a thread about how we should get together and organize a youtube page where we interview legends from yesterday and we make sure to use subtitles because our music is African music. Its not just us anymore, it went much further and beyond our borders. Figured we have to get this on record before most of those legends pass. Happy to see someone had the same idea and ia turning it into fruition. If you guys have any infromation i think they are still requesting rare images and rare moments from that period to add to the finishing product.
