Where is he anyway? He needs to gather Empire Bakuba for an album

The man is alive and settled in England. He lives in my town Birmingham  but of late I have not seen him. These are some of his clips at an open concert in London at the Notting Hill Carnival 2016 - the biggest carnival in UK held every August.

Kiekie, y’all are some hardcore Werra fans.

It’s not like this was some random long time member. This was his one of his childhood best friend. Even at the very height of their success, the like of JB, Werra, & Adolphe have admitted to lamenting and even crying about their loss of friendships due to professional gain. It’s more than just music this Wenge saga.

In 2006, I spent Christmas with Alba Accompa, when JB decided to extend his stay in UK maing the album Kipe Yayo. Just after Christmas Alba and I in the company of my friend who is a die hard BCBGiste went to one of the restaurants in North London. While enjoying, losu, pondu, madesu, ngolo and ntaba, my friend and I got started with the ususal petty arguments about JB & Werra......Immediately, Alba cautioned us not to continue because his boss' friends were around. We stopped but on our way I was keen to know why he sisn't want us to argue cause I thought it was all fanatique talk and he said & I quote, "because Werra is my boss' best fiend & they visit each other. All the polemic you see on tv is showbiz." For years I didn't beileve Alba and refused to think it was possible until I saw Werra and JB turning up for each of their daughters' birthdays and JB on tv wishing a happy birthday to Werrason - his best friend.

The reason Werrason is the more successful of the Wenge off shoots is because of his business acumen and ruthlessness. The harsh reality is that we live in a cruel world where more often than not, life isn't fair and there is nothing you can do about it except continue to put your best foot forward. It's a dog eat dog and you got to do what you have to do to feed your family before you think of feeding your friends. Adolphe had the perfect template to throw himself in the mix, start competing with Werra and prove himself the better musician but couldn't. He cannot blame anyone but himself, cause Werra sisn't owe him anything that is why he was sacked. Werra was sacked by JB but didn't waste time morning about it, but made sure that he bounced back and stake his claim.

I do not believe that Werra lost any sleep or missed out artistically because of Adolphe's departure......In fact Werra was at his creative genius when he had full control of the group. Kibuisa Mpimpa & Ala que leu leu are by far the best albums in Werra's discography and they were achieved without Adolphe.

just a little bit of history of judol, when les marquis left he went to be tested in maison mere but capuccino won as he was supported by the remaining chiefs then he went to recruit musicians for bill to create les samourai then did first album with him and left and went to do one of those musical competitions sponsored by beers or phone companies inspired of western competitions,and unlike other candidates he went all the way through to winning with jb's songs without accepting to do foreign songs and from then he started developing being a little jb until he got recruited 2 years ago

bro, we are far from wanting to support piracy. As in the topic "The album that I'm waiting to appear on the digital platforms", we said that we share, here between us, the albums are not available on the platforms of legal download or streaming because we are In love with Congolese music and there are many Congolese albums that have become too rare because the producers do not make them available online. If these albums were available online, we may never have created these topics. We share these albums only for private and personal listening.

Ba Ndeko, none of you would have the miracles album of les Marquis de Maison Mère ? Please, that whoever has it, can rip it in good quality and create a link on which we could download it ? thank you so much

This discussion board does not support piracy.

JB is a good singer and that is where it all ends...........Werrason couldn't sing to save his life but compensates for it in abundance by being an excellent musician. I mean that it is a mystery that we talk of JB & Werra in the same sentance......it is remarkable what he has done.

To me Werra is the complete and all round musician. He demonstrated his ability to play all instruments like Koffi Olomide........he has a good ear for good singers........ he is very creative and innovative.........he keeps things fresh and changes personnel just like the top football teams in the world. Werra is never short of excitement just like Koffi Olomide.

I could never say the same of JB.......he is the most talented but very frustrating musician. I will go as far as saying that if he applied himself half as much as Werrason does, he could have easily conquered Africa & beyond.......his bizzare loyalty to the geriatrics in the band is as shocking as it is ruinous to his band.

Congolese Music / Re: Who are your favourite bass players
« on: February 20, 2018, 10:51 »
Michel Lumana (ex Werrason) is by a country mile the best bassist I have ever seen and listened to. He is the man who inspired me to start bass lessons.......... How he played on Tindika Loketo & Alerte Generale was trendsetting and set the Congole music world on a new path of bass playing......he plays bass with heavy slides and is almost like a lead player.


Lofombo is also very good. So is Rocky Blanchard, Pati Kaja Bass, Sunda & Wallo.......

Unlike some I find Mimiche, Binda, Masela and all to be functional no frills bassists. No exciting at all.

Wenger ekufi.....lol

It doesn't natch with the argument but why is Werra give that much credibility to Diego is hilarious lol, first tune ever after Mayi Ya Sika that I don't see him drunk or high, anyway the guy is good but it doesn't mean anything he is the guy who was behind for 10 plus years with Werra not even knowing it, and that Goldberg crie why he didn't put that in 7 Jours? It was fire, anyway I still believe that Wenge will die, it is not the quality of the music but is the quality of administration that is lacking


I showed you a video of a guy who is doing Ambulance and Brigade's animations performing even better than the former and  instead of engaging with that point, you've now dragged in Diego and Goldberg into it. Your statement is nothing but empty criticism........I cannot make head or tail of it but will reiterate that Werra is an astute musician and has a way of confounding his critics and keeping the fanbase happy.

There is nothing new you are telling us.

We heard people pronounce the death of WMMM in 2002 when Les Maquis left but now we are in 2018 and the movement is going strong. After Temoignage, I also heard people say Werra is finished but last year he finished the year with a blockbuster song....Zenga Luketu. Year after year we hear this..........Werrason will finish the day he decides he has had enough, not when some musican leaves the band.

Lions do not concern themselves with the opinion of sheep

Wenge ekufi? That is wishful thinking of the worst kind.......Wenge MMM is Werrason and for as long as he is alive, the group is also alive and kicking. You under estimate the man........Congo is a sea of talent & Werra's work is cut out in that he won't even go to find them.............they find him

Look at that.........another nobody already killing it for Werra. Watch from 5 mins

I was about to make a post about MM's issues and this drops out.
I have to say that I was expecting it.
A lot of you are asking how in the world a guy who is the number one atalaku in Wenge could leave for a smaller group, where he would probably be the 3rd/4tg well it is simple.
PAYMENTS.
Bill was even bigger than Ambulance but left, even though he wanted to stay for ever.
It is always about money, MM will collapse soon if Werra doesn't start to change that bully empire that he have built, once Deplick went to Werra for asking him 300$ [which in European standard (not change value but terms of living) it is about 2000€] and Werra gave it, then Deplick was visited by administration, Kakol and so on and he left with 50$.
This is a small example of how Wenge works and now I understand why MM doesn't have the same appeal, you cannot always rely on donors to pay your employees if Werra doesn't want to finish like Djino needs to stop acting greedy

Wenge Musica Maison Mere is Werrason. He is the alpha and Omega.......staff will come and go. I never imagined life after Bill & Celeo but here we are. I liked Ambulance a lot but found him noisy plus irritating as he became more confident on stage and started running all over the place. Goldberg is good.......he needs the opportunity to progress & is in the Bill Clinton mould. I expect more from this guy
