Good song, I would love to see music video of this song.


Ah bon. I was listening to this album when I was at college, doing my homework. It just popped up in my head. It's been 13 years since I listened to this. I thought this was album was nice of course backing stars were incredible. I used to have this cd from my parents. They weren't a fan of this album

I notice the young Sam Tshintu who did not sing a note until 1997's Ultimatum album.

Yeah he didn't have a vocal in Magie. He only sing in his song Shambouyi(he didn't have a vocal in it too it's sad.) which Koffi allowed him to put in the album due to the respect he had for him.

C'est dommage. He would fit perfectly in Magie but he was said in another thread that he was sidelined because he was busy with his exams while the songs which made the cut for Magie were composed or rehearsed. A lot of people (myself include) used to think that Aladji's vocals were his.

Then who was singing vocal #4 on Magie track? I know Aladji's vocal was on vocal 5. Between vocal 4 and 5 are very very different.

Beginning of the video, Mopao playing guitar solo....FIRE!!

Ahh I see. I always thought it was released in late 1993 now I know the release now. What ever happened to Duc Herode??


Le Duc Herode feat. Koffi Olomide & Q.L.I. dans "GLAMOUR" Year: 199?

There are 9 tracks of the album.

I'm digging this. Dope my brotha!

It's been 4 years (October 8, 2014) since Babia Ndonga's passing. We miss his beautiful singing voice. RIP Babia (1974-2014)  :'(

His vocals:

Best members in my view

Do Akongo (nephew of Dizzy Mandjeku)
Lebou Kabuya
Beniko Popolipo Makiadi
Fally Ipupa
Felly Tyson
Eric Tutsi
Deo Brando
Montana Kamenga
Lola Muana
Sam Tshintu
and some others

I would love a album where we could hear Fally Ipupa and Koffi Olomide sing alongside Suzuki. It would be nice to hear those three together. It would create something special.

I know. It sucks that didn't happened. Now Fally is on his own

Champion Djikapela, Beniko Popolipo & Do Akongo. This because of their big contribution to Quartier Latin and Koffi's carreer.

Beniko Popolipo was the brain behind the rhythm of many songs (Parking Ya Baba, Micko, Andrada, Number One, etc.), he was very important for the progess of Rocky Blanchard, Lebou Kabuya, Felly Tyson, Ridens Makosso,... who he coached and they are all till this day grateful for that till this day. He helped Koffi with leading Quartier Latin who were back in 1993 very young (some 21, 22, 23,..) and difficult to handle with.

Do Akongo was the guy who brought the Zebola-rhythm to Quartier Latin which came the identical rhthm of Koffi & QL. Which later on also other artists used in their albums. Ferre for example in Jao Ndombele. The same Do Akongo gave Koffi excellent songs as goshtwriter (Sos, Automate & Spaghetti for some examples). Himself released also excellent on his name songs like Fois Cent, Sens Inverse, Avion, Kot Kot & Coucou in Quartier Latin and Koffi's albums.

Champion Djikapela, because he's an excellent drummer and far better than Coco Tchomba & Kaps Kapangala. He was one of the rare drummers in big bands who was hitting all pieces of the drumset while most Congolese drummers only focues on the snaredrums. Back in the days Koffi had always to invite Djudju-chet Luvengoka to drum for him in his solo-albums (Noblesse Oblige & V12). Because Coco Tchombo & Kaps Kapangala were very limited as drummer. But since Champion Djikapela, he never had to call Djudju again. Champion used to drum for Lavignoria Esthetique and Koffi was amazed about the way was drumming and send Binda Bass to get him in Quartier Latin. Alot of people were calling him the copycat of Titina Al Capone who was then drumming Wenge 4x4, because he was always smilling when he was drumming and was like Titina hitting al pieces of the drumset. It would have been nice if he stayed long in Quartier Latin like his friend Binda Bass. I liked that Kompa-style doing on the drums before Koffi did his entrance in the Licoln Center or when the dancers came in Olympia. I also liked the way how Koffi, Somono, Mboshi, CNN and presentator Consty Eka were screaming his name Champion!!!!! Esthetique!!! Stoumy !!! Djikpela!!! and then him replying by hitting the tombs. I wonder how Coco Tchomba felt when he heard Koffi screaming Champion very hard in the beginning of his song Boussouno.

Esthetique euh !!!!!

You can feel that Champion know also to play other styles than Ndombolo & Rumba. I wonder why he's not very active like Simolo Katondi and Djudju-chet Luvengoka as session drummer. Because he's very good. The way Somono mentioned his name in Loi, Koffi Olomide letting him dance in the videoclips of Ultimatum and Loi made him be the most famous drummer of Africa. He name was more known then the singers of Quartier Latin and all atalaku's. It's sad that Champion didn't use for a soukous or coupe decale-career or something like to become a big star like Awilo Longomba or Diblo Dibala who were both instrumentists.

I liked his songs alot. Number Two (which was normally dedicated to his ex'wife but Simon Mbongo bought which the being dedicated to him) and Retour Riva.

You can never go wrong with Esthetique. He is always the beast to this day! It's good to see that he's doing well. Let's not forget his singing skills which cracks me up lol

I remember Koffi had a lot of beard back in Noblesse Oblige era.

That was just for a short moment. I think that it had something to do with Didi Olomide's death. When his dad died he did also not cut his beard for a long time. He cut the beard off very quickly after the release of Noblesse Oblige. When he started his tours in Africa from 1994/late 1993 he didn't had that beard anymore.

Wow I didn't know that. How bizzarre! One day I hope that Ingenieur has the cassette when QL did Repetition were in Kinshasa 1994. I know there's short clips but bad quality tho.

I remember Koffi had a lot of beard back in Noblesse Oblige era.

QL Singer: This one is quite hard. For me, Willy Bula, Modogo Abarambwa, Sam Tshintu, oohh its hard
I liked that Willy Bula could also be an animator and sing as well. Modogo for the deep voice. Sam Tshintu for singing, and dancing too.
QL Dancer: Suzuki, Bouro, Fally (I admit, when it came to the solo parts, these were some people I looked forward to)
QL Female Dancer (my favourite section because I am female haha): Zina Bilaho. For me, she was the best dancer QL ever had, consistent, effortless, and she was a Cheftaine for some time?
Other female dancers that I take note of (old): Rosette Kamono (the 1st ever female dancer for QL?) Mireille Konde, Rita Dembo. I think Fifi as well, but back in the day (pre-1995) , Claudine AC Milan, Sandralina,
Latest/current dancers: I liked Patricia Apataki, but she just disappeared of late. Mami Itanzoma. some QL dancers where recruited based on looks, but where not as charismatic as the dancers back in the day. Some I just do not know their names.
QL Drummer: Look, Champion only because it was during the "Sebene" era. Otherwise, Kaps Kapangala
QL Guitarist/Bassist: Do Akongo, Beniko Popolipo, Felly Tyson for the solo/mi solo
                              Clovis Silawuka, Pathy Bass for the Bassists. Binda Bass is too over-rated I feel
QL Animators: The combination of Mboshi Lipasa/Somono Dolce Parabolique, such memories! CNN also held his own pretty well. Kerozene/Brigade for awhile, but my top are Mbosho, Somono, CNN

I think I need to update my current QL people database hahahaha.


Dope choice my brotha.

I need to update mine. It keeps changing. Modogo’s voice will always be the smooth one. Kaps de Kaps (Drummer) also does Mukuta Munene dance. He does it way better than QL members. Kero and Brigade were another great duo ????????

 Sanction was a great album for QLA! I always play Sort and 100 Ans!


There needs to be a Wenge Musica movie or documentary!

Have you guys ever thought about making a Youtube channel where you discuss the history behind the classic albums and artist we love so much?


I totally agree with you my brother . They need to make it one day. I wish, it sucks I don't have congolese friends around me who are into classic albums from back in the days
