Manda and Werra were not at good terms even when they were both at wenge BCBG 4×4 soo him wanting to join WMMM is still but rumours.

In this interview Manda said that he was in good terms with Nsone during the split and that Biblos Lufulu contacted him to join, but him refusing. The same interview Manda said that he and Blaise Bula had to participate on the Bercy-event, but he was left behind and that it was Henry Mova Sakani (who was then close to the late Laurent-Desire Kabila before becoming an important PPRD-member) who brought him to Europe. Coming in Europe, Manda had normally like planned to have a featering on Kibuisa Mpimpa with Werrason, but Ferre Gola was strongly against, saying that Manda Chante has to join Wenge Maison Mere if he wanted to participate and that they would all leave if Werrason accepted to sing with him on Kibuisa Mpimpa.

I wasn't able to read the whole comment. But thinking about it, I think that he's 13, 14 or 15 years old and an old concert-promoter or former producer blackmailing him, sending him message that he have to pay 1000 euros if he wants to upload those videos. Him being scared because of his young age and delete those videos immediatly.

I can’t wait for part two (The of Wenge Reference & El Paris).

So they put Adolphe Dominguez as Vice-President because he came from Mputuville ? Wasn’t unfair, because Blaise Bula joined Wenge earlier than Adolphe. Now I see also why Masela decided to give Adolphe the president-role in Wenge Maison Mère and why Adolphe was so obsessed with it, thinking that after JB it was him even if Masela & Werra had more power in Wenge 4x4.

That were thought times for Manda, that story about him taking public transport in Germany and people being scared for him, made me feel sad. That must have affected him mentally, especially with the case that nobody of Wenge 4x4 went to vist him in the hospital.

Wenge 4x4 was boring in the terms of events after Europe-tours. They came from Europe in 1992 and just performed at Hotel Invest & Intercontinental, while that tour had huge impact. Not that they created a crazy event like Maison Mère later, Victoria Eleison in the past or El Paris in 1992 & 1993.


This is what he tried to do explain to me, but I couldn’t read the whole comment because the video where he placed his comment to a reaction on my question got deleted.

Nobody knew Papy Kalombo. In 2005/06 Delta Force was already dead a the hype about them was, if they were talking about Delta Force, people were only seeing Lofombo.

How do you want people respect you, if you don't achieve anything and don't have any financial support. It had nothing to do with the look of the musicians, because if it was about the looks then Koffi wouldn't have recruited Ile de Cambogde & John Scot, Nyoka Longo don't recruiting Prince Bella and Strelly Mikobi, Werrason not recruiting Goldberg and Teka Diobanza, Fally Ipupa not recruiting Wallo Bass. Delta Force had succes it its first two years after Pepe Kalle death. Djuna's departure weakened them a little bit, but they were still going strong. The thing that killed Delta Force was the way Gode Lofombo spent two years in Europe after releasing the album Confirmation, which made many musicians leave the band for Quartier Latin, Zaiko Langa Langa, Wenge Maison Mere, etc. The rest that stayed saw their chiefs Laurent Mosengo Kadogo and the other one (I forgot his name)  going away with the money  that Gode Lofombo was sending for them, which created for departures. Then towards the end of 2002, Gode Lofombo tried to reform his band and recruited new musicians, started to perform in Kinshasa and tour like annually in Matadi, Boma and Muanda (mostly because his from the Kongo-Central province and knowing donors from there, like the way Djuna often goes to Mbanza-Kongo and Uige since that he has some Angolan origins and his cousin working for a time for MPLA in Uige). But Lofombo had still difficulties, because the Congolese people don't respect instrumentalists as bandleaders, so it wasn't easy to make it and he had to fund the recordings of his new album all by himself, becoming almost broke. Then bandleaders also started to steal/recruit his musicians (most ended in the 2nd team), so he had to start over and over again. In 2006 managed finally to finish his album Tranisition with help from a friend/donor based in Danemark, but that album got never released officialy in Kinshasa and in Europe it was not promoted well and the CD also really difficult to find. The generique Honorina Mwana promoted on TV-channels of Kinshasa and had some little succes, but it stayed there. After it Gode Lofombo started mostly to focus on session work, working with alot of gospel artists and 5eme generation musicians who were recording their albums in Kinshasa (Ferre Gola, Celeo Scram, Bill Clinton, Kabose, etc.) and also Werrason having some lines in Temps Present. Somewhere in 2009 or 2010, Lofombo decided to disband Delta Force saying clearly that he hadn't enough financial support (I remember Lofombo once saying that he was so broke that he had to take money from his late wife Shalamaman RIP to get interviewed). Around 2013 he created a new band Empire Acoustic and had some concerts in Muanda and Boma and public rehearshals. In 2019, he reformed his band again and said that he doesnt want musicians anymore above the 35, saying that will only focus about food (lol) and their wives and children and that he will never hold public rehearshals anymore, because they are like concerts.

Wemba was arrested for the ngulu-affaire, spent 3 months jail, because of not being able to bail himself out until that Joseph Kabila paid. Papa Wemba wasn't autorized to return to Kinshasa, because his case wasn't finish. Nouvelle Ecriture had financial difficulties, because their leader wasn't there, sponsors refused to support them and donors weren't trusting them. The musicians themselves started also to get problems because they spent already 1 year in Kinshasa (musicians lives with tours outside Congo and mostly when they are in Europe). The summer saved them a little bit with those events, fancy fairs and Fikin, but when the summer finished the problems returned. The musicians thought that Wemba would return after the release of Somo Trop, but a few months after that the French police gave him to Belgium, where there was also a proces against him about the ngulu-affair. Papa Wemba and the policemen who brough him to the lawsuit almost died, when the vehicle made a big car-accident going two times upside-down. It was during those moment that musicians started to leave one by one and that then like Pathy said in this interview that Riva Kalimazi and his friend who had a company decided to contact Bralima for 6 open-air concerts, in order that guys like Tosha, Pathy, Costa Pinto, etc. could get some money, but Deo Sfr dying in the last concert in a car-accident after having performed in Maluku. After that the succes started slowly return with the new dance Banzokion and guys like Bendoson and co returning one by one and Wemba finallly being authorized to return after spending 18 months in Europe, performing 3 months with them before return to Europe again to wait for the verdict.

I liked their sebenes, but not the way of animating, because they were pronoucing it bad. Those things made my furious, the same for Kibinda Nkoy in the beginning when they were doing Kaludji's cri Kimbanda Nzila and Umbanzanga Moyo.

His album is already since 2012, he isn’t able to release it. Diego Music had normally to release it in 2013, but I don’t know what went wrong.
