Congolese artists have often the habit to perform with sunglasses on, but I have never seen Papa Wemba & King Kester Emeneya performing with sunglasses on.

It clear that Sam Tshintu intoxicated the other guys by forcing him slowly out the band. That thing was happened in Brazzaville was ridiculous. I remind it only now about it, back in the days I thought that it was fake-news. Champion predicated that already from day 1 in the Droit de Veto-VHS, saying "Eloko nini ezo lakisa que oko baluka Bouro te, po Bouro aleki ye. Oko baluka pe Modogo te?". I think that it made Sam a little jealous how Wemba prefered Bouro Mpela and how he in his opinion humilated him. It smees that some feared Sam, the way Bouro talks about Mboshi when Sam was preparing a third song, while they each had to put 2 songs on Viagra.

If it was Koffi Olomide, JB Mpiana or Werrason performing at Festival des Cannes and meeting those big stars then they would have made alot of noise about it. Especially if it were the guys of the 5th generation (Fally, Heritier, Ferre & Fabregas). But Nyoka Longo stayed quite about it. Nyoka Longo's presence at Festival des Cannes could be have been a good reponse against Koffi, if they made alot of noise about it on the Congolese tv. Since that Koffi was bragging alot about his Olympia & Zenith shows of 1998 and mocking Nyoka Longo that he was local, forgetting that 90% of the public of his shows at Olympia & Zenith were African. While Nyoka perfomed at Festival des Cannes in front of a different public. Nyoka Longo missed alot of opportunity to boost his name more by staying quite about big events. He always puts Zaiko's name more on the forefront than his. There are alof of people who think that Nyoka Longo's name is Zaiko. It's crazy that they put that moment of Festival des Cannes on that moment. Because it was in the spring of 1999. I guess that they did it because of the war of fanclubs who weren't believing the their rivals did. I remember people back in the days thinking that Wemba was lying about him meeting big stars and performing with them, when he had a contract with Real World Records. But only when he died they discovered how big he actually was.

Hahaha Wendo killed me by saying "nako kota monde ya ba gorilles te". The elders didn't like ndombolo. I remember how Mbuta Likasu was jocking about how Wendo danced Kiwanzenza on a festival in Amsterdam. "Kiwanzenza ya ba nkoko".

Simaro was really angry the way Carlyto talked about OK Jazz and said things to boost his testomony even more. Alot of artists who switched to gospel back in the late 90's and early 2000's created some stories to boost their testimony more, but some admitted it later that it was fack. Alot of people don't even know that Simaro made some interviews about that with people still believing that the story about Maya was real. Someone people said to me that Carlyto stopped talking about his OK Jazz, Maya, etc. People who were following OK Jazz back in the days know that Simaro was the who recuited Carlyto and not Franco. Because Franco was at that time based in Brussels with the other musicians and he came to Zaïre he was ignoring Carlyto. Something what people of that time know, which led to his departure. But in his testimony he said that Franco recuited him. Someone said to me that Carlyto don't talk about OK Jazz, the song Maya, etc. anymore in churches.

What is the signification of "Rendekita" ? I have the impression to see "rando e kita" (fewer conflicts)

rando is a word which exists since 2012 or 2013.

Rendekita means (rendez-vous na kibo tata). Blaise Bula was saying that many times in concerts of Wenge BCBG back in 1998. reffering to Werrason, who was saying that they would not succeed in their carreers. With Blaise Bula calling him crazy and sayng Rendekita, thinking that he, JB and Makaba would become rich and Werrason, Masela and Adolphe poor and not suceed in their carreers and saying that they would look like after 20 years how things would be. But now 20 years later we can say that Werrason was a little bit right about what he said some minutes before the split.



Here Blaise Bula singing it in a vocal from 4:12 min

Thank you thank you bro  :) :), what Werrason said some minutes before the split ?

Like I said Werrason said that they would not succeed. "Boko bamba mbati"

Radja Kula was very famous in the 80's and 90's but his succes didn't go outside Kinshasa and Brazzaville. It's just like those many dj's who are famous now in Kinshasa, but not the it's diaspora or other African countries. Radja Kula gave many shows on Tele Zaïre. People didn't really respect his band, because they didn't know how to sing. They made people only dance.

Shora Mbemba was very famous back in 1995. His band became the relevation of the year, best band of the year and he got the award of best animation of the year. The album Bize Mandundu became one of three most solded albums of 1995 and 1996 (Maybe the most solded).The succes of his band made Defao, Zaiko, Koffi Olomide in V12 (1995) and Wenge Musica in Pentagone (1996). Their succes was so big that they started competing against Empire Bakuba, Quartier Latin and Wenge Musica. People in the Congolese diaspora started to get interessed about them and their album Bize Mandundu was selling very well maybe even more the albums we know of 1995. Their succes made people in Europe understand that bands of Kinshasa always animations of smaller bands. To calculate Shora Mbemba's succes Tele Zaïre decided to invite them for Variete Samedi Soir, one week after that Empire Bakuba their after their 1 year touring in Europe, USA and Canada. Their show the bomb and better than Empire Bakuba. It boosted their succes more and Tele Zaïre made alot money by selling the video of that show in Europe. 1996 was a good year touring in the big cities of Zaïre and the succes of the VHS of their show on Variete Samedi Soir made them get contracts for a tour in Europe. But things then didn't go well and they didn't tour anymore with problems starting in the band and the band getting split. Then Shora himself starting to get problems with his health and became seriously ill. He almost died. With rumors being spread throught Kinshasa that Koffi Olomide was behind of that after attacking him spiritually by giving him cloths and gifts after visiting him at home, like the way he did to Isiro1er. 5 years ago he made an interview about that with Didier Masuki explaining exactly what happened, but that video is deleted. Then he went to the traditional church Mpeve Ya Longo where he recovered. He made then a strong comeback in 1998 with his album 2eme round which was a succes in Kinshasa and made also a tribute song to the then new president Laurent-Desire Kabila. After that it became so-so with his succes. Beniko Popolipo & Babia Ndonga particpated on his album Cyclone of 2000. Then somewhere in 2001-02 he received an contract to tour in U.K.. He settled then with his band their and lived 10 years in Europe after that he decided to return in Kinshasa and re-start Super Choc in Bumbu. Some guys who decided to leave him back in 1996-97 ended up in Blaise Bula's Ponderation 8. Guys like Hone Kienga who used to be one of Flamme Kapaya's many mentors and who makes alot of videos on YouTube and Dejeannot Nsangu who was the animator.

the animation which made his band famous


The show on Variete Samedi Soir which was presented by Zacharie Bababaswe. Comedian Tatu Kalombo (R.I.P.) used to be their second drummer you can see him drumming in that concert and dancing at a moment with those girldancers.

That was Shiro Vuemba’s (R.I.P.) most famous sebene. He played that in the remix of Anzele.



From 1:24 min.. He went to early.



From 7:11 min with Nono’s famous Nsusu ikokele-animation

What Japonais played was a medley of the most popular sebenes of Viva La Musica, Zaiko Langa Langa & Victoria Eleison.

Congolese Music / Re: BILL INTERVIEW
« on: May 19, 2018, 04:21 »
The Wenge-clan really killed our music with that polemic about that president-role after the split and giving that role as president to much importance. With Adolphe saying  "niama azalaka jamais mokonzi ya moto" to attack Werra. JB Mpiana attacking Werrason with "ata layi soki obengaki nga president te". This all gave a bad influence to the next generation with nobody caring about teamwork, but just about who gives the other ones orders. Guys from the 3th generation didn't care all about that on the most time they were giving the president-role to their manager or donor and themselves focusing more on music. It was from 1 already clear that Les Marquis would split when they made an interview with Yves Kambala. The succes of Fally & Ferre made it worser and all artists wanting to be leaders. Lacoste, Flamme Kapaya, Roi David & Celeo could have easily teamed up together to form a band with the succes they had and split after 3 or 2 years instead of being solo artists each on his own side and releasing albums who risk to flop. Those Maison Mere-artists who unhappy back in 2014 (Deplick, Prince, Lobeso, Olivier, Miel, Taddet, Corean & Eboa Lotin) could have easily formed a splinter-band, but they are to pride not wanting the other giving orders with them leaving one by one and risking to flop in their solo careers. Les Marquis had just to give the president-role to Ma'Jacky Watunda who was supporting them alot. Btw where is Jacky Watunda now ?

Nice bass work from Gode Tolola and Gode Mbemba Ndombasi "aka Lofombo" (Shora's little brother)

Was Jagger Bokoko (R.I.P.) the real creator of the Yungana-signautre on the guitar ? which was later played by Alain Makaba, Burkina Faso, Japonais Maladi, Flamme Kapaya and many others. Or did it come from Station Japana of Mbuta Muntu Radja Kula who gave many sebene-partitions, sebene-partitions, animations and dances to the big bands, or comes it from those streetbands of Ngiri Ngiri/Kasa-Vubu or is it something traditional like many rhythms in sebenes and generics who comes in reality from the village (mboka/tshabuala) .

THe animation of Engombi was done by Nono Manzanza who animated in Defao’s Nessy de London, Wazekwa’s bonjour Monsieur, in Madilu’s song Virus, Aurlus Mabele’s Dossier X, Guy Guy fall’s Force de Frappe & Cote d’Ouest and many other albums. He lives in Paris.

Can we say that Pepe Kalle is the man who introduced Generiques with animation ? Or must we see those tracks as normal songs.




generique did already exist with Tabu Ley, Eneneya & Papa Wemba. Back in the days they were calling it “Hymme National” (National Anthem), since that they were starting their concerts with those tracks. Papa Wemba had even an outro-sebene for his concerts
