Professeur Didace was a guitarist he used to play rhythm, but sometimes also lead. For example in Magie he played lead on Detresse and Merlian. He also played lead in the song Dessin Anime of Ultimatum, which had normally to be in the Magie-album. He had only one song (Detresse) in Quartier Latin, which is in the Magie-album.

Quartier Latin was first not a real band when it got founded in November 1986. It was more a band that had to back Koffi Olomide up in his concerts of Kinshasa (he was Europe-based at that time). The concert he gave with Choc Stars at Kimpwanza motivated him to form his own band, because he had to share the money with the late Ben Nyamabo, but Ben Nyamabo not being fair and taking a big part of the money. Some members of the first members of Quartier Latin were his old mentors, for example the guitarist Vieux Veron (the man who taught him to play guitar), some of the singers were his friends, others were introduced by Koffi's friends. Most members came from Binza and Lemba and used to play in small bands. Binza was the neighbour place where his Koffi's mother used to live and Lemba the area where Koffi spent a big part of his childhood. It was difficult for Quartier Latin-musicians to accept musicians coming from other areas in their band. For example when Marie Paul, who used to be Koffi's pire petit and guy who he used to rehearse his songs with when coming in Kinshasa, got approached by Koffi's friend to join Quartier Latin. He wasn't accepted by guitarist the late Yoto Nkelani "Delta Force", wanting to mess his test up, because he wasn't coming from Lemba like him. Which made Marie Paul not join Quartier Latin. Fofo le Collegien was also part of Quartier Latin's first generation. He used to play bass for Sam Mangwana before joining Quartier Latin

 Quartier Latin became a proper band from 1990/91, when Koffi started to poach slowly all influent members of Flash Musica, after seeing them performing at Blaise Kombo's mourning (Wenge's ex'mi-solist). Flash Musica was a band based in Binza who were one of Wenge Musica's rivals, some of the songs in Magie were old Flash Musica's songs. The first one of Flash Musica to get recruited was Rocky Blanchard, followed by Suzuki, they were later joined by Willy Bula, then you had Lebou Kabuya after Lebou, Modogo came then Flash Musica's bandleader Sam Tshintu in 1993.

Wait, when did Yoto pass?he had hard time reproducing Shiro’s work but did a good job playing Mbuta Matima’s sebene of Videma live

8 years ago, along Patou Solo, Jeremie Kitubu et Padache(?) he interpreted a song on TV saying it was Jeremie’s song and was supposed to be included in Balle de Match

11:26 and fhen at 12:55 the song Theme/title

R.i.p Lebou, my second favorite Guitarist after Makaba because of their way of playing that instrument and also dancing with the group

Lol the way He Mimik Jossart’s singer got me dead

Been banging this Generique all day in my car... haha
On another note. Quentin needs to drop something so i can hear his Extra Musica
Nouvlle Horizon with Sonor lead
Zangul with Roga on lead
International with Durel on Lead

I will go with International just because i like Quentin, Durel and Arafat. If they can convince Kila Regis Touba Abilisi and Herman to do a Maxi single and then somthing together with New Horizon Roga will become depressed

I see, I did not notice this guy became that big journalist, but I understand the buzz now.

What is this Savimbi stori in brief by the way?

Savimbi asked Mobutu to send a band from Kinshasa to play at his Bday. Since Zaiko wasnt available Koffi and his group got picked... after all the trouble the risk thru, they played two concert and Koffi gave Beniko $200(as they agreed in contract) but as they were also asking money to other donors close to Savimbi  one told them Savimbi gave Koffi $400K( He organized a reception for the band but Koffi brought only female dancers)

I got sad the part he talked about Ya Lengos’ death! It made me go finnish the interview they did with Lengos wife.... I wonder if it wasn’t just Alcohol poisining

Imagine if he had Gone to Kenya with Zaiko or didnt go hangout with Likinga tha night we would have seen Ya Lengos back in Zaiko Langa Langa. He didnt deserve to end like that,he could have gone solo and be as good as Wemba

BENIKOOOO!!! The part about about Wemba boxing them out so he could eat by himself got me deaaad ????????

Cant believe this guy is the same guy i been getting in trouble at school for... getting kicked out. Curfews at home because i was soooo invested in the BCBG VS MM and BCBG VS QL war...tho we laugh about it now with friends we did it with but those guys almost ruined us

It seems good. But this is not Zaiko, this is Ya Jossart's band.

Zaiko Langa Langa died either in 1989 or in 1997.
Haha Jossart is Zaiko but for real tho, I feel after the departure or Meridjo and Oncle Bapius Zaiko in the mid 90´s changed something
