I like the maturity Didi exhibited. It would have been tempting for her to say "You can all go and hang yourselves you haters" Anyway she's not Congolese, French.

Did Wazekwa make money out of this concert?

Koffi Olomide will remain the most sophisticated musician ever from Congo. I have been thinking since he went to Europe, where are the Combatants? Could combatants be Koffi's creation? Well, as it is it seems even the combatants are happy with his entry.
Those combattants are being nipped.Most European countries are cracking down on foreigners.With the French protests ay present.They just deport you these days with the change of leadership in Kinshasa you will be on a plane quickly.Its not about sophistication.It is called public relations .He uses a situation to its full effect.You should know by now Koffi is a showman who knows how to use the media .

And that is the sophistication my friend.

But again I thought Zaiko has been having a packed calendar of concerts in and out of Congo and is one of the most expensive orchestras to hire. What's happening? why would a musician of such a band run to roam streets of the US/Europe? Are these musicians not paid well? I expect Adicky Ndebe to lose musicians this way but not Zaiko.

It's just that some musicians believe that the grass is greener on the other side, so that's why they stay in Europe, the US or Canada when their band finishes touring. It used to be like this back in the 90s. If I recall, when Quartier Latin toured Europe in 1994, a few members stayed behind. Zaiko is well-structured compared to Lacoste's band but Nyoka Longo can't stop his bandmates from not returning to Kinshasa.

It's like they said, Europe is paradise.


If its Lola as rumored then I will not have words!! Lola stands a chance to lead Zaiko one day, why would he stay in the US? Sad!! Or they only prefer old shapeless white women to playing in one vintage orchestra?

Nice to watch. I think they want to try peace with new albums this time round. It may work.

did you guys see the part where he asked fans to clap for heritier ?i am glad they are understanding now that their created war of maison  mere days is the past and must remain the past

Ferre, Wata and Celeo are in good relationship of late. I like it. I think their relationship will help Celeo with his upcoming album.

The sins done by Werra in his career though!! WMM is a jungle and Werra got it right, he has been the leader of that jungle.A jungle where others feed on others. I could see how the members behaved when they performed in Nairobi. They showed lack of civility, you could only see people eager to pay themselves on stage.

Even me I would slap Fally for his shit sense of fashion that he's been showing of late.

@mvulusi96

Why the regret?

I was doing everything for free and took alot of risk. He lost he business because of that and received alot of summons(I don't if I translated well). Espcially for Werrason's arrival in Paris in 1999 which created alot of havoc in Paris with the police not knowing what was going on and Mbentenge having to pay alot of money for
disturbing public order. Then also for Werrason's arrival in Paris back in 2000 before Bercy, he then also rented then also a horse with his own money and many other things which created alot of financial problems. Thinking then that Werrason would pay him some money after it as reward which didn't happen. That's also why he decided to support Adolphe Dominguez back in 2000, but he returned to the Maison Mere-camp, because they needed him for the Double Zenith-event. I knew alot of secrets and was very important. That's also why he became a combattant, like many other people who used to support musicians and became broke which created some jealousy and anger. Seeing those leaders that building villa's and them having nothing and the same leaders they supported, don't receiving them at home in Kinshasa and sometimes even humilating them while they took alot of risks. That were one of the reasons why the succes of Congo-Music in Paris and Brussels started to slow down in 2002, because influent people started to stop supporting them, being dissapointed and some also started to get arrested for some business.

Musicians are like politicians, very selfish, or I would say anybody with a celebrity status is unpredictable. Never get into any pact with one without a proper written contract. Musicians will want everything for free, free sex, food, ride, drinks  name it.
