hmmm so where Djudju-chet and Mike Evian official Academia members ? or just an collaboraters because both weren't present in the Kinshasa's concerts and the concerts done in Europe after their tour in Kinshasa.

Aah Lebou Kabuya.... He's for me the best solist of Quartier Latin.


Jugement Dernier written by Serge Mabiala on the "A La Que Leu Leu" album. This was the only song with Chetani & Nasilisa Maloba of the album from who weren't made a video-clip

Japonais Kyoto on the lead.

Influenced by the Kongo-tribe folklore.

I wonder why Madilu didn't have made more generics in his solo carreer.


with a young Tutu Calugi on the animations.

Blaise Bula was not present in this concert, after having being agressed by soldiers of an general. Who had a relationship with his ex'girlfriend Monique Kalala.

Congolese Music / Is Koffi Olomide suffering depression?
« on: July 05, 2016, 02:02 »
Is Koffi Olomide suffering depression? Because he has beside of love songs many sad songs who are about himself singing that people don't like him and not wanting to see him shine.

this is from the 13eme Apotre album.

from Abacadabra album

Parking ya Baba from the V12 album with Beniko on the Bass !!!!. Koffi wrote this song at his home in Neuilly-Sur-Seine (France) with Beniko on the guitar in 1994 when they came for the Magie-tour. Andrada from the same V12-album was written in the same period. He started to write it during a rehearse-session in Paris, after that Beniko improvised a Zebola-rhythm on his guitar.

from the Noblesse Oblige album written by Wazekwa, who's dedicated two times in this song by Koffi. Koffi himself played the rhythm guitar on the song, he played it also the songs Miss des Miss & Noblesse Oblige of the same album.

Evangile from the same Noblesse Oblige-album, the song had hints towards his brother Didi Olomide who died that year and who's indirectly the reason of the union of him and his wife Aliane. For who he sung the song Miss des Miss.

Papa Bonheur from the Koweit Rive Gauche-album. This song made him very famous in Africa and won many awards due to this song. It had Code 36.15 niawu on the shaker, Ngouma Lokito on the bass and Beniko Popolipo on the lead.

Qui Cherche Trouve from the Koweit Rive Gauche-album with Djudju-chet Luvengoka on the drums.

Tcha-Tcho du Sorcier from the Elle et Moi-album the song was a big succes along with Coucou, Elle et Moi, Mannequin and V.I.P. The album was arranged like Henriquet, Rue d'Amour & Les Prissoniers Dorment by Manu Lima, Rigo Star and Koffi himself. Koffi played in this song and some other songs the rhythm guitar and bass. At that time he got the nickname Golden Star.

Mal Aime from the Henriquet-album also called the Rambo du Zaire-album. With Koffi on the rhythm guitar and bass. This album made seat Koffi's succes very well in Zaire. At that time people were calling him the Zairese Julio Iglesias(a famous Spanish singer), due to his love songs and the sound (mainly due to style of Manu Lima's keyboard-playing, which was close to Kassav and Julio Iglesias). Koffi Olomide was voted at the end of 1988 as best songwriter because the succes of the songs from the Rue d'Amour-album and Henriquet-album (Djino, Orphelinat, etc.)

Droits de l'Homme from the Rue d'Amour album released at the end of 1987 and in 1991 re-released as Golden Star dans Stephie. With this Koffi confirmed his succes, started to got a big fanbase under women in Zaire due to his love songs and started also to get known and performing in countries like Togo, Cote d'Ivoire and Rwanda. With the same album he got a villa rewarded in the quarter Bandalungwa of Kinshasa by General Likulia Bolonga, due to having dedicated a song to Claudia Likulia who was his daugther.

Petit Frere Ya Jesus, from Rue d'Amour. the song created a little bit controversy. due to his song-title.

Dieu Voit Tout released in 1987 on his duo-album with ex'Viva singer Fafa de Molokai and re-released on The Top-EP. The song was a huge succes and brought Koffi back on the top. Koffi Olomide recorded this song after that people in Kinshasa were speculating that he died from Aids in Paris. His mother thought that it was real and cried on tv, but discovered that Koffi was alive when she's called to Koffi's home and Koffi who was then watching tv reacted very shocked and decided then to record this song. The same song created also for much controversy, because it was released 2 years earlier by Papa Wemba as Destin Ya Moto with him as credited as official songwriter, while the most people knew that Reddy Amisi was orginally the songwriter like the song Petite Gina and the same Dieu Voit Tout/Destin Ya Moto made apparently Reddy join Viva La Musica in 1982. Till this day nobody knows who's the real songwriter of Dieu Voit Tout/Destin Ya Moto. But the thing which people well know is that there is always much controversy or a big incident before Koffi Olomide wants to release an album of organize a big event. Koffi Olomide got end of the year 1987 the award of best artistic merit, due to the strong lyrics of Dieu Voit Tout. 

This song Ngulupa was released in 1986 on the duo-album Ai Ai Ai "La Bombe Eclate" with guitarist Rigo Star, who arranged all his albums from 1983 till 1991. Koffi Olomide recorded this song, after that people were suspecting that he contracted Aids.

After the succes of the Diva-EP in 1985, which brought him really back in the spotligths. Koffi decided in 1986 to record the Ngobila-EP with like his debut-album Josky Kiambukuta as special guest. The same year he decided to found his own orchestra "Quartier Latin Entreprise" Who had then guys like Yoto Nkelani, Coco Tchomba, Simolo Katondi, Fofo Le Collegien (as bass-player), Toussaint Vince, Vieux Veron, Aladji HC, Mascot de Katalas and Djunafa as members. But the Ngobila-album was then  unfortunately not a big succes, 5 or 6 years later the song Ngobila and Apolosto Ya Bolingo becaume strangely enough a big succes. Koffi decided then to release the song Ngobila with Bennie in 1992 on the Diva-re issue.

this song is from 1978 orginally written by Koffi Olomide, but sung and credited Papa Wemba as official songwritter.


Rigo Star's solo album Formule 1 from 1998 produced by Syllart Production and distributed by Sonodisc. It had Koffi Olomide, King Kester Emeneya, Pepe Kalle, Madilu, Sam Mangwana & Malage De Lugendo as guest stars. It's one of the most underrated albums.


Pinos explains that after Wemba's settling in Paris from 1987, Skol was inviting him many times to perform in cities of Zaire. Wemba was then instead of bringing Viva La Musica "Nouvelle Generation/Made in France" to Zaire calling ex' musicians like Pinos & Debaba and musicians he left behind Kinshasa like Stella Uomo, Itshari, Gauthier Mukoka, Dezay, etc. to perform along with him and Reddy, Stino & Asta Paola (who where going with him to Zaire). These concerts where around between 1990-1994. In 1994 Reddy Amisi released his fourth solo-album Prudence which was a huge succes and asked permission to Papa Wemba, if he could promoting his album in Zaire & Congo Brazza after receiving contracts, something which Wemba agreed with. When Reddy came in Zaire he held a reunion at La Samba (which was owned by Choc Stars-boss Ben Nyamabo, before becoming Werra's    property) where he called ex' musicians of Viva La Musica and musicians like Alpatshino, Manda Chante, Maradonna, Ramazani, Theo Bidens, Babel, etc. who for where playing for other bands and explaining to them that he wanted to perform with them, that he was still a member of Viva La Musica and that they he recruited just for accompanying him in concerts but not to form a new band. From that they began to rehearse at La Samba and he pointed Pinos as chef d'Orchestre, with the reason that he was very experienced (having played in Viva La Musica 77-82 and Victoria Eleison 82-91). Reddy Amisi performed then twice at G.H.K. (at that time called Intercontinental), at Nsele (the concert where people died), Ndjili, Brazzaville, Dolisie & Pointe Noire. All those concerts where very crowded and a big succes and meanwhile Reddy still saying to the musicians and the press that it was not an official band and he was still a member of Viva La Musica. When Reddy returned to France he received again contracts this time for the BHT-company (which was a cigarettes-brand), who proposed him to tour whole Zaire (cities Kisangani, Lubumbashi, Kananga, Bukavu, etc.). Reddy used than the same musicians, which used in the previous concerts and returned then to France. This all happened in 1995. Then Serge Mayembo (the concert-promoter who organised the concerts of Reddy in Congo Brazzaville) invited Papa Wemba to perform in Brazzaville for Christmas '95). Papa Wemba then used his friend Colonel Jagger & Reddy to call those musicians and they then to Brazzaville where they first rehearsed and then performed. Serge then proposed then to perform in Dolisie, which Wemba refused due to the bad memories of '82 (they robbed at that time all his money, when he came there). They performed Afterwards in Pointe Noire and came back in Kinshasa for two Skol-concerts. The concerts where a big succes, but not very equal like those of Reddy who where very explosive. After the concerts Papa Wemba hold an reunion at Intercontinental with Djess, Lambio-Lambio, Colonel Jagger & Pinos. Where he said to them that he wanted to form a Viva La Musica aile Kinshasa, because his band was settled in Paris and he had not official musicians in Kinshasa. He asked them to hold the backing musicians who accompanied him intact (Pinos, Gathier Mukoka, Maradonna, Ramazani, Dezay, Itshari, Tosha Fulakanda), to recruit three new singers and rehearse new songs. Because all the singers who accompanied him where members of bands. Wemba ,Reddy & Asta Paola went then again back to Paris and Djess who was the public relations officer of Papa Wemba went on tv to announce that they were recruiting new singers at the Bobongo Studio. More than 50 singers came there and Pinos & Wemba's staff picked only three singers (Bendoson, Pompom Miyake & Iboss Le Grand Mbati). Then Colonel Jagger sended to Pinos a singer came called Bixas le Liberateur who wanted to be a new member of Viva La Musica. They then started to rehearse at Colonel Jagger's house in Matonge. Pathy Patchecko joined also Viva La Musica trough Colonel Jagger with an accord of his big brother  (who first  didn't want him seeing to start a music-career but rather continuing his studies, since his brother was executive and Pathy himself intelligent at school, but he finally agreed after an conservation with his childhood friend Pinos). Some weeks later after reheasring at Colonel Jagger's house, Wemba came with Stino, Reddy and Asta Paola to perform some concerts for Skol in Kinshasa and then returned again in France. Then in France he asked to his staff to send them a cassette tape with all the new songs they rehearsed and he picked some songs and came that to Kinshasa with music-arranger Maika Munan to Kinshasa. They wanted to record the new songs at the Bobongo studios, but there where coming to much people watching so Maika decided to record the songs in Brazzaville. At that time people in Europe and Kinshasa where thinking that Wemba stole Nouvelle Ecriture from Reddy, due to having seen most musicians of Nouvelle Ecriture in videotapes of Reddy's concert from 1995 in Kinshasa.  The first trip of Nouvelle Ecriture was in Conakry (Guinee). Where performed with Papa Wemba, Reddy Amisi & Asta Paola and took pictures at a swimming pool and used it for cd cover of the Nouvelle Ecriture-album. Looking for a new name for the in Kinshasa based Viva La Musica, Bendoson came with the name Nouvelle Ecriture "Linzaka ya Sika". That also the reason why he made Nouvelle Ecriture his proprietary name, when he left Wemba. Which forced Wemba to change Nouvelle Ecriture's name in Nouvelle Ecrita

the rest of the translation tomorrow
Nouvelle Ecriture touring in Europe, origin of Bendoson vs Reddy, why himself Pinos left Viva, his vision of why Reddy left and the formation of Reddy's band which accompanied him during the Etoile-tour in R.D.C. (with likes of Mimiche Basse, Marcahouse, Chamberton 10, etc.)


Is that Manu Lima Da Liuz on the keyboard ?

It smeems that Koffi & Madiangu Herode liked that Julio Iglesias-style so much. I remember people claiming in the
Tcha-Tcho Era (1985-1993) that Koffi's songs were translated versions from French pop-artists. "Nga bazalaki koloba, pe balobaka na zwaka nzembo ya mondele na bongala na mangala" from Dieu Voit Tout


Here's Wazekwa explaining how their collaboration came to end after a angry call from Koffi, after hearing Wemba mentioning him in the song 10eme Commandement (understanding that he gave Papa Wemba songs on the Foridoles album) and saying that Wemba messed the song La Reference, Nzete ya Sequoia, Moyi & 10eme Commandement up, also that Wemba doesn't have a nice voice and that he is the only one who knows how to seduce women, etc. After the collaboration with Wemba on Pole Position (giving Apres Tout, Kaokokorobo, Overdose & Nani Temoin) encouraged Wazekwa to start a solo-career beside of giving songs and invited Madilu & Wemba on his debut album Tetragramme.

Congolese Music / Koffi Olomide's disstracks
« on: June 19, 2016, 23:57 »

Bokilo To Suki Wapi is a single from 1984 which Koffi made against the father of his then wife Marianne Makosso, who wasn't happy with their mariage. It was recorded in Europe with Papa Wemba after the flop of his first EP Ngounda from 1983. At this time Koffi was looking his succes of 1978-79 back. He song would be later released in 1998 on the Ngounda "special edition" album which had also included the EP Lady Bo from 1984 which had interventions from King Kester Emeneya.

a revanche disstrack

Magie was not distrack, but had a attack against Nyoka Longo who was dating Mobutu's daugter and Moleka's daugter at the same time (from 8:07 min the Elyseee euh !!! part ). This attack made Mobutu's son Kongolo Mobutu 'aka Saddam Hussein' angry, who made this song censored on the tv and radio's for some time in Zaire. Koffi never ever performed that Elysee-Eyanga part in concerts, after the reconcilation with Saddam.

Andrada was a diss-track against Papa Wemba, there are rumours that the conflict started when Wemba wanted to date Rosette Kamono, which made him angry. They reconciled with each after that Nyoka Longa & Manda Mobutu wanted to sue him and Koffi at that time for help from Wemba and some times later he asked him to record a duo-album as sign for there reconcilation. (the Wake-Up album)

This diss-track was made against Manda Mobutu 'aka Maitre Madova' who was Mobutu's son. (from the V12-album)

Rond Point was made against Zaiko, who weren't at time not touring anymore in Europe since 1996. At that time Zaiko was rehearsing and perform every week at Kimpwanza which is next to a roundabout. Koffi was mocking them about that they were turning whole time on a rondabout. Jossart Nyoka Longa was very angry about that song and did his very best to bring Zaiko Europe and they replied very hard with the song Proverbs 22:1 (Antoine missisa)

Malanda Ngombe was a song made against Papa Wemba who dissed him very hard in the song O'koningana and attacked him the songs Fula Ngenge, Abu Pia, m'odikenda & Martina B. as Mutu Nguba (Peannot head) and much other things like that. Koffi was very chocked replied very hard with the song Malanda Ngombe, which means a cow who follows someone everywhere (in reference that Wemba followed him in performing at Zenith '99). In the song self he reffered to the past of him and Wemba (1978), that he made Wemba what he is/was today with the songs he gave to him at the beginning of Viva La Musica and that Wemba beneficed the most with it, that he jealous etc. and called him Shamazulu (someone with a big noise). He also attacked Papa Wemba in the beginning of the generic Attentat (es-que redacteur ya bible eza ye, the song Elongi ya Jesus as reference) and the songs like Victoire and Kamutshima.

In the song Nul n'est Parfait he attacked the guys from Academia a little in the intro of the song and made Babia diss Wemba, singing that Wemba forgot the number of kids he made in his life.

The second conflict between him and Wemba started from nowhere in 1998. When Wemba's girl-dancers of Nouvelle Ecriture (Coco Maria, Chantal, Mimi, etc.) provocked Koffi's girl-dancers that they are prissoniers etc. during the time that they came for a tour in Europe. During the tour some dancers decided to stay in Europe and Koffi mocked Wemba for not being able to handle girldancers. Which didn't please Wemba and from that attacks started against the two artists through interviews and became hardcore after that Nouvelle Ecriture performed at Zenith in March '99. With Bendoson, Pompom Miyake, Alpatshino, Patchecko and Bogus attacking Koffi as Mutu Nguba.

Suivez le Guide was a praise song like Number One, Respect, etc. but had some little attack towards J.B. Mpiana. Koffi also attacked JB in Generation Bercy and Piwawa. The beef against J.B. Mpiana really started in 1999, after accepting Nono Diamant, Miette Shegue and Suzuki in the band, which made him angry. The conflict became worse when Koffi sended his musicians to attack JB, after his first Stade des Martyrs concert in december 1999. Because Koffi could not accept that JB was the first star to fill it, while himself tried that earlier that but it flopped. He also sended CNN to wore the same cloths in Attentat-generic, which JB wore during his Stade des Martyrs-concert, which was messed up by the rain.

The conflict  become worser trougth the year 2000, where they were even suspended on tv for some time. In 2001 it became very hardcore, when JB wanted to perform at Bercy and the BCBG-camp began to call Koffi "Bin Laden" and claiming that he was not Congolese....

BCBG named the next album in reference to that conflict Anti-Terro in 2001 and placed even a doppleganger in the generic of Anti-Terro in 2004. Koffi replied then with naming the next-album Monde Arabe which he annouced as next solo-album, just after Effrakata before working on Affaire d'Etat.
In the polemic continued in the next years 2002, 03 & 04, with 2003 as peak. Where both artist where fighting about the nickname "Hero National".

Diabolos and Salopette were the songs Koffi made against Fally, from who's departure hurting him very hard and especially the interview made with Thierry Dawa. He the same album he attacked Wazekwa, who dissed him in the generic of Que Demande Le Peuple, which hurted Koffi very hard.
