I laughed so hard when Shaka sais it, because I was excepting for something serious about money or documents, but he came with that hahaha and he was still looking serious

Hahaha, he was acting as if it was a big deal.

Socoda is a Congolese  association collecting payments of artists’ rights and distributing the rights to the songwriters, composers and music publishers.

Singers of bands dont get paid, because the majority isn't affiliated. Those who are affiliated are mostly bandleaders and when the day of payment arrives. People working at Socoda just check the faces and pay them based on the way they like the artists. If you often attack them on television you will receive peannuts or and sometimes alot in order to let them shut your mounth, like they did with Reddy Amisi who used to come every week on the television to complain that they weren't writing on the letter for which songs/album they were getting money like SACEM and SABAM and when Verckys came to replace Blaise Bula, he wasn't complaining anymore while it was still the same system. Sometimes it also happen that they give chicken, oil, makayabu and bags with fufu to artists lol

Fally isn't a member of Socoda. If you would be, I would doubt that he would receive it, because at SACEM Koffi is credited as songwriter of all his songs (despite that they wrote something different on the credits those groupalbums). A few years ago, Actu de Net made a video about bandleaders (Koffi Olomidé and JB Mpiana) crediting all songs of group-album to their names which created a scandal. But Werrason the only one to not do that, maybe it had something to do with the contract he had with JPS, where he signed that he gave all his rights of his albums recorded at the label JPS Production to Jean Pierre Saah. One of the reasons why Serge Muloso (original songwriter of Vita-Imana) couldn't get the rights for the song Vita Imana after suing Ferre and writing letters to SACEM.

About the chicken and the bags of fufu it reminded when Shaka Kongo told Papy Mboma he left either Socoda because the late Verckys did not give me any chicken lol

I didn't follow Aurlus Mabele. But what was the reason Aurlus Mabele abandoning Soukous to make Ndombolo-music ? Was it because of Ndombolo starting to take over in Africa,  Soukous being past and Aurlus wanting the follow the trend ? Or was he was aiming to have a band in Brazzaville like the way Koffi Olomidé had Quartier Latin in Kinshasa instead of being Paris based ?

I was asking myself the same question it could be that Soukous was out of fashion and Ndombolo was dominating the music scene I mean...other soukous artists such Djunny Claude and Damien Aziwa followed the Ndombolo trend.

The same for me. I think that Bozi knew that many would this song, making him to put it as first track of the album instead of the song Les Refoules de Schengen.

It fitted perfect as the first track especially the introduction played by Philippe Guez on the Keyboards.



How could I not have paid attention to this song

This were the last years of Djonolo doing regular music before switching to gospel music for a moment. Back in those days, people started to mock Djonolo for his addiction

The way Bozi sung this song made me doubt about him being songwriter. Because he really sung it in Djonolo's style of singing.

My favorite song from the album.

Its a shame. The list of talented guitarist in big bands without a big name must be very long. I wonder why I didn’t participate as solist in Les Refoules Schengen (1997)  although being present during the tour, Bozi just preferring Nene Tchakou (RIP) and Rigo Star

Btw you know what the title of song is that they performed after Ma Raison d'Etre (third song) from 16:15 min ?  He played a part of the sebene (21:36 min) in Raid for Ocean but on a slow way. The way he played Ma Raison d´Etre in this concert was magic totally different from the album version.

I first always thought it was Burkina Faso playing in that concert at studio maman ngebi cause the haircut, his face not really being visible, his style of playing at that time being close to that of Burkina and at that some point also using Burkina's signature of the Kalayi Boeing-days that Fi-carre used in Cresois.

I don't know why he did not participated on the album "Les Refoules De Schegen" but my guess is that Bello was probably left behind in Kinshasa during the studio recordings of the "Les Refoules de Schengen" it makes sense because Bozi only bought Deo Brondo, Janvier and Betty Bis hence why Bozi called Nene Tchakou (RIP) and Rigo Star.

I think Bozi came back to Kinshasa to get the rest of the band members to complete that probably explains why Bello was present on the video clip of Les Refoules De Schengen and also present for the Bana Saint Gabriel album but that's my guess.

I totally forgot about that concert at Studio Maman Ngebi Bello did performed the song Ma Raison d'Etre.

His guitar work is really short, meaning there is not enough albums he featured on I think he played on the "Mbanzi Ya Gamundele" album I believe and played Position Eyebani.

You are right the album had good sebenes I realised that Bello did not use distortion on the guitars he kept it clean.

Is this really in Paris ? I thought Extra Musica never returned back to Paris since 2001 until 2016. But why did Roga then not record La Main Noire in Paris instead of Brazzaville or was this the trip where they profited to correct some stuff in the studio and ask Brice Malonga for some help as keyboard player ?

This was in Paris I was surprised to see Extra Musica as the backing the band I think it was a short trip.

With; Chairman Jacques Koyo, Roga Roga, Doudou Copa and Rapha Bounzeki.

I remember 20 years ago I saw the clip of Obiang but that clip is rare.

That was Madilu's funeral.

yeah zaiko from 98 till 2000/2001 then latino

He joined Zaïko Langa Langa in 1997 and departed in 2001.

I do not the atalaku's name that passed away but I know he featured on the album "Mbanzi Ya Gamundele" (1994) and he appeared on Tele Zaïre "Variete Samedi Soir" when Schola Miel returned in 1995.
