There is too much unnecessary polemique going on in the Congolese music industry and it's the useless youtube ''journalists'' pushing it. There is nothing wrong if Fally copies especially a traditional song.
What I find sickening is that polemique has now extended to gospel musicians,pastors and all, now they are all on Moise Mbiye claiming he is a satanist or whatever.
I really find it hard to understand why Koffi does that anyway, it's been happening since time immemorial. His workers are professionals and music isn't like some strict religion where sometimes people cannot marry. Koffi needs to give freedom to his dancers, if they want men, they should have them, it's not for him to dictate when and who they should marry or sleep with.
Fantastic art there on the cover, extraordinary. I don't care about the photo, what i care about is the music!We have had too much rubbish including singles on the market that is why of late I have been collecting more gospel congolese music by the likes of Moise Mbiye and others, finally Ferre is ready to fill the void so waiting patiently.
Abraham has spoken well and if it's true Roger Ngandu said those things then it is stupid of him,Roger or JB if such orders were made. Anyone who has worked for BCBG has the right to sing those songs,it can only be an issue if they want to remix or re-record them.
It's because a majority of BCBG members actually settled in Europe after leaving BCBG and it is a fact that Europe is the cemetery of Congolese music, you cannot go to Europe and expect to excel in Congolese music.
I am not aware of Chai Ngenge having released his first album yet and it is the same for Abraham so we cannot judge them yet but for Djino, his album was average and he did not leave BCBG in a good way and was saying crap about JB and BCBG members at the time he was promoting his solo career and album so that backfired.
A majority of Maison Mere musicians who went solo have generally gone whilst still respecting Werrason so the resentment from Maison Mere and Werrason's fans has not been bad,only those who insult Werra have had it bad.
