Very nice, coincides with the 26th anniversary of his passing. Hopefully this is the first of many serious steps to bring back to light the richness of Congolese culture and the other greats who have left us.

Always nice to see vieux Massiya in good form.

I must say the release of this album has been better managed than any other Congolese album to date. No leaks and immediacy of availability on all formats.

I think it's unnecessary to make a new thread for each song. There's nothing groundbreaking. A single thread where songs can be posted/discussed is sufficient.

Does Tutu intend on installing himself in Kin? An unsung musical hero of the 90s.

I used to always ponder what a killer combo Tutu & Bill Clinton would be.

Funny anecdote: Anybody remember listening to Generation Bercy for the first time and scratching your head thinking the track started over again? ;D

Effrakata was the Zenith of Koffi's career. As you've stated, the album offered the best of everything. Lots of experienced heads went into this album and production quality was superb. The album was a breath of fresh air but, as we now know, it set the bar too high. Affaire d'Etat was even better from an acoustic standpoint (well ahead of its time) but it was a group album and it was not as well promoted. Same case with Emeneya's Longue Histoire versus Nouvel Ordre.

I've listened to Effrakata hundreds of times and was fortunate to have my CD signed by Koffi. Also got to perview some songs like Washington when he was here in NYC with QL back in Summer '01.

What I will say is that the massive success of Effrakata went to head, much more so than his previous successes, and the accolades (Quadra Kora Man and others) gradually led to the Koffi (or is it Kofffi :D) we have today. This was once a shy man who spent years in the 80's trying to make a name for himself. 

Best Congolese album of all time is very subjective.... Lots of great albums.

Surprisingly short and tolerable... Nice to see a return of decent solo at the end.

Was thinking of starting a thread on this issue...As a result of the advent of electric drums and everyone recording at Studio N'diaye with JP Kys, all generiques sound very similar nowadays, which is rather unfortunate. Not much stands out like the great generiques of yesteryear. Also gone are decent choruses with discernible 1er and 2eme voix.

Man what fun the soukous era was in the late 80s early 90s....

I believe the videos are viewable in certain countries only.

Yes, there's a weird occurence of signers passing before album releases. Pepe Ndombe, Emeneya, Madilu, among other. So far only Madilu "La Bonne Humeur" has been release posthumously.

^Agree, if hints are being dropped, a little indication of what going on would be helpful.

Someone mentioned the 3 Fs signifying Fally, Ferre, and Fabergas but that's too seems too simple and unlike of him to do.

The whole ndoki/illuminati cult/culture is nonsense to me, but I find it rather odd when entertainers make obvious references. Things are also very weird when something tragic happens to close staff coinciding with recent releases. Allegations of Huges Kitambala and Alisi Baba being sacrificed for Fleche Ingeta, musicians dying for three days, etc. I just don't understand.

Right, but this concert was held with intent of being released on video and audio as it was Heritier's first big concert. Final mixing and release was handled by Obouo Music of Monsoh. Lenny Bidens also played a big role here.

 Compare this with of other Kin concerts albums mixed and released by Mpova and Deigo Music which were recorded at similar venues but are unlistenable like Koffi Chant x. 

The only issue with this release is the heavy use fake crowd cheers.

Excellent and promising stuff. Despite being controversial, David Monsoh knows how to produce quailty recordings. Quality is as good as Fally's 2010 Zenith audio.

Wow, seriously good. If only covers like these of International hits were brought to the attention of the leaders...... Mabanga-laced ballads don't have this effect.

Ngiama & Fabergas must be on positive terms now for this to have occurred, right? Any chance this'll affect his relations with Koffi?

[Flame suit on] For such an average singer, Fabergas is doing big things. [/ Flame suit]
