no he was driving and doing a lot of freestyle but at fast pace

Yeah, just saw the full footage unfortunately. He had a death wish, as much as I hate to say it. No way he was sober

Fuck that hit hard

Yeah man, I'm in complete disbelief

 Guys have you seen the images of him driving  before the incident,hopefully he rests in peace and people learn from that aswell when they will manage to swallow emotion

Yeah, he was doing crazy stunts and driving at crazy speed in Abidjan with child spectators near by. On one occasion when I was in Babi I saw his crew speeding on La Rue Princesse where the clubs are. I'm surprised he didn't get license pulled even though it wouldn't have stopped him

as if it was written somewhere,the song which made him famous was about a fellow dj dead in a motorbike accident,and unfortunately he also died from same thing
33 years old was still quite a young age

Yeah, the continental hit « Hommage à DJ Jonathan »

I was just listening to his new album yesterday thinking how good it was.

He lived a like a rockstar and people around him were advising him to relax on the alcohol, drugs, women, and his obsession with speed

not really. In that era the succes of Congolese music in Europe started to finish. It was was Emeneya who was doing on tv. It was in 2003, when Wemba performed at Zenith after having spended 3 months in jail. But the concert was a big mpiaka because of bad promotion and Congolese music didn't had alot of succes anymore. Koffi would get the same thing at Zenith 2 months later. That stuff about plein made his return in 2010 when Fally and Ferre planned their concert at Zenith.
I understand now. What was the cause of our music not being at the top anymore in those times, what is that music became mediocre or lack of producers? In my pinion in terms of success our music was at his best around 98/99/00

The Ngulu affair scared a lot of Congolese back in 2003; Wemba was made an example even though other artists were equally as guilty. Also you have to note this was the year Sono (Next) reached bankruptcy, JPS (RIP) started having his legal issues), and Simon SIPE began to decline. Many factors can to a head that year, although some of the pundits like Jimmy Mukelenge, and co predicted it years beforehand.

Although 1998-2001 were the best years, it came at a cost long-term

Tough crowd kiekie; in comparison to his recent works this is alright. Bass and guitar tuning is on point; Mukusa ya Mbwa is ok

That being said, I prefer Norbat de Paris’ générique, which kinda sad because he’s not even a dedicated musician

Actually, this is fairly decent. Better than Nyataquance

Man, the pure acoustic quality, composition, and arrangement. Flawless


Still really pissed this album went under the radar

I liked the generique "Mbamba na Mbamba" which has former Big Stars atalaku Pecos



Yeah, absolutely love the générique. It’s been on repeat. My favorite this year along with Cible

Who knew Norbat spoke good English kiekie

No, he was too Greco for QL. Aside from Fally, who had to adapt to QL, bana Bandal did not fit QL ethos
Welllll that’s not really true cause guys like Depitcho, Mamale, Jordan Kusa, Cambodge were from bandal and they fit in QL

I guess you’re right, but all those guys had to adapt to fit in QL. Some of the names you listed were successful, others weren’t. In WMM for example they could be themselves

Celeo was hardcore Représentant de Bandalungwa and still is, with the likes of the legend Bokuta Mpongo aka bandal.com kiekie

Thanks guys; gotta check this out. I have yet to listen to a bad album from the sapeur enclave. I don’t support their ways morally, but do like their music
