Esperant, Jadot & Bipoli would become cool with Emeneya when they rejoined Viva La Musica

True, it turned into a brotherhood relationship.

Emeneya had more space at least his best friends Djanana and Dindo Yogo were good to him.

If you were a musician of viva you had to have a kanga motema spirit.

lol kanga motema spirit.

If you wanted to join Viva La Musica you had to be a real Yankee, smoke weed and kozala na esprit. If you was a yuma, you wouldn't spent 3 days there lol. King Kester Emeneya had a very hard time in the first months, he was often bullied by Bipoli, Esperant and Jadot. Wemba himself didn't had in the faith in Emeneya in the beginning saying "he sings well, but he's a yuma" and "comment nduleman akoki kozala na forme ya batu ya tchik boye".

It's very difficult to build up confidence but he proved himself in the early 80s until he started leading Viva in Wemba's absences.

That figures I didn't hear his voice on ceci cela and nana efiye but he returned in 1984 when he sang his famous song Adieta


He was there in 1983. You can see him on the concert they made at Studio Maman Ngebi after the creation of Victoria Eleison.

Back in the 70s and 80s, they were only singing with 4 singers max or the formula bandleader+4 singers, never more than that. Only Langa Langa Stars was using 5 singers.

I was about to point that out I made mistake I forgot that he participated in that concert.

I read somewhere that Jadot Le Camodgien wanted to stay Kinshasa back in 1986 or was it a different story?

Jadot le Cambodgien didn't want to stay in 1986. I guess that you read it from Wemba's biography on his old website, which written by a Britsh hardcore fan. The same guy claimed that he sacked some his musicians (Gauthier Mukoka, Dezay, Lidjo Kwempa, Awilo and co), because they weren't able to adopt the the international area, which wasn't even true. They were left behind in Kinshasa, when Wemba decide to settle in Paris in 1987. This was because Wemba's staff weren't liking them the way there were complaining about salary, so they were punished for that. It was from 1988 that Martin Messoniers picked a few musicians of Viva La Musica to form a new band called Molokai, for his world-music career. Since that there were to much musicians. So they watched Viva La Musica performing live during a rehearsal, picking only Richacha, Demukuse, Reddy, Luciana and Stino. He also claimed that Nouvelle Generation split, becauseof financial problems since that the life without Wemba wasn't different,which isn't true.

Jadot Le Cambogien explained in an interview that Wemba went to Paris for a moment back in late 1986 and that Viva La Musica, started facing financial problems. Reddy Amisi then being close to join Zaiko and other members also wanting to leave, but they still survived. They then celebrated Viva's 10th birthday without Wemba (who was still in Europe). So then the press interviewed him about that and he said that Wemba is like a Eagle (in a way to praise him) and that he they could live without him (in a good way). But the journalists then wrote as title in the newpapers (Jadot Le Cambogien veut casser le mythe "Papa Wemba") which means Jadot Le Cambogien wants to break the myth Papa Wemba. Wemba's staff didn't like it and when Wemba came back in mid 1987 to bring Viva La Musica and his staff to Paris, he was among the guys who got punished. He tried on his own way to come in Europe, but it didn't work.

The sad story so that website lied? I remember I saw a video of Jadot with his own band but it did not last long and he faded away from the scene. Plus Jadot was in Viva since 77 I founded a bit it disrespectful how they punished him it seemed the amout of loyalty gone to waste.

I wonder who was the guy doing the animation in this song? It seems to me as if I could hear him on the album Revaloriser by Familia Dei:



My guess his name is Le Beau either Papy Bill he is credited on the Marie Mozege album also before joining Familia Dei he used to be in Bimi Ombale's Basquille Loningisa along with Somono.

Just realised this was Coco Tchomba and Willy Bula last moments considering they were in Quartier Latin during the early years.

Some of the pictures were taken during Koffi's 40th Anniversary and festival which featured Zaiko Langa Langa, Tshala Muana and Papa Wemba and I see Doudou Adoula.

Very opposite the songs are like an advert brochure promoted by Zaiko and JB Mpiana response sounded like he was a tourist who got ripped off.
