by the ways we are three weeks away from the end of that foolish contract
Let it end, BCBG is suffering the fact that they have no new music on the market.

This was the time I used to polish JB Mpiana's shoes and water his gardens at his home. TH was literally in my blood and I used to hold all of his CDs, DVDs in my arm pits all day long. Now all that has fizzled out in thin air. How things change.

 Like this.  ;D ;D

What does this phrase "Bakutuluka makulu kumba basuki" mean?  ;D

I always find it difficult to differentiate between solo and mi-solo guitar in a song. Ramazani explains the two in simple terms starting at 12:30. Very insightful interview.

The Dolphin is a clear favourite in this race with this kind of divided opposition.

He makes a valid point when he states that when as a band leader the people close to you say a lot of stuff about other guys, its necessary to verify them with whoever it is that is affected. But sad enough this happens in almost all groups were those close to the band leader take advantage of their position and snitch on others and the band leader doesn't verify.

True @JV "Roaster Master". Sometimes its not even just the same structures but even worse structures than were someone is coming from. After being frustrated kuna, someone comes back saying "ndako na biso ekomi monene" and expects to be treated the same as before. The train has moved on. If you were a favourite to the boss, someone has most likely already taken your place.

The problem with young musicians these days is they lack patience and want  everything fast without really working hard for it.
Very true ndeko. I guess they have never heard the old adage that goes "patience pays". They want to become big stars overnight.

I actually like him, unless he joins up with Chikito and Kunzardo he'll be back because there is no space at all in the other groups. He just got there so why would even expect a song if that was the case, he still would've gotten a vocal or two that's better  then nothing.
I equally liked him. He had very good vocals in QQJD album. His friends/followers on his wall were actually advising him that he is making a mistake by leaving but seems he has made up his mind. What these guys dont realise is that leaving a group means when you come back you would have to start from scratch in terms proving your loyalty to a group and just basically being treated like before. Unless you are super talented.

Could it be that he wasn't given a song in the upcoming album?

Lol. I loved this interview too. Such characters are important in any group or setup... The part were Koffi and Fally were arguing over who should tell Jordan that he is not happy because Jordan knew Kester's songs. "Yo oyébi nzembo tout ya king Kester". ;D

This site is very much similar all across the continent with maybe the exception of the North African countries and to some degree South Africa and Rwanda. You will notice that for a place like South Africa were the whites have never really left, things atleast work. Now this has nothing to do with say that whites are better than us blacks but its just our mentality. Take someone from Kin to Europe they will behave differently in terms of how they dispose of their waste, but immediately the same person lands in Africa he starts throwing trash through car windows. Like really!

The other problems we have is like you rightly put it is the greed of our leaders. Two weeks ago i was in Switzerland, Geneva and one of my embassy friend told me a story of how everyone knows when Paul Biya the Cameroon president is in Geneva. He says, the first thing you see is the large number of latest Mercedes benz vehicles packed at Hotel Intercontinental. Then he goes on to book three floors of the hotel to himself and his cronies. And holds cabinet meetings in a foreign country, even spends most of his time in Geneva than he does in Cameroon. And this 85 year old man just "won" reelection back home. Now can you imagine the poverty and just the breakdown in systems in such a country!


Does this mean that we'll have to hear an Afro/Congo/Trap/Beat album from Koffi?

Will Congolese bands even matter 10-20 years from now?

Yes (1) and no(2). Speaking realistically, no 6 gen is on the rise.

That's incredibly sad to both.

 I think by the end this decade there's something going to change dramatically about Congolese music. Because based of Innos'B latest interview, the new artists on Trace Kitoko and articles like this popping up:

The 6th generation seems like they're not interested in Rumba and Ndombolo at all, which makes me fear that live musicians/orchestras are going to be in danger.
I saw a similar report on BBC 2 DAYS ago and i must admit the news sort of sent chills in my spine like literally. Rumba is the DRC's national identity like we have Reggae for Jamaica and Football for Brazil.
