It's a good Aime Buanga refused he was really motivated to start his band despite the short success.

hmmm short succces? All his albums flopped and people started to mock him. I remember Sai Sai mocking him in the JB-vs-Werra movie. Until he decided to stop with his music career and become a producer.

I remember someone telling me that Marie Paul wanted him to join El Paris but Aime Buanga refused back in 1997-98.

Its true Aime said that 3 years ago in an interview. Saying that Marie Paul tried to convice him to return, because in his opinion it would be difficult for him to succeed as solo-artist in Kinshasa with all those stuff which happen behind the scenes and on the other side it would boost Wenge EL Paris more, because they could then claim that they were the true Wenge since that Aime Buanga is the founder of Wenge Musica 'Kolo Esthetique'. But Aime Buanga refused.

this video inspired me one question guys which style do you think is "nicer" solo guitar wise,soukouss or sebene/ndombolo/ngwasuma or agwaya like heritier's 5eme vitesse

sebene/ndombolo/ngwasuma of the 90s.

This album made him go the Russia, Qatar, Oman & the French West Indies (Martinique, Guadeloupe & Saint Martin). He was on the way to become one of those Soukous-stars. He could have made a big name like Awilo Longomba,  Kanda Bongo Man, Dr Sakis, Aurlus Mabele, Diblo Dibala, etc. But he decided to go back to his roots with Engombi.

I always thought that he came after V12 while Quartier Latin used to rehearse for Ultimatum. He got things confused. Binda was there since 1 and a half year when he go to Europe in 1997 for Ultimatum & the first recording sessions of Loi. His voice make me think of Baby Ndombe's. 
What is he doing now in Europe ? I heard he was the only musician who didn't have to do jobs like Suzuki,Modogo,Serge Mabiala,Aimelia and co to survive in Europe.

He said towards the end that he work for a hotel. He plays sometimes with Kassav.

lol, Koffi so bad. Why doing that to Rocky Blanchard ? Just because of hearing that he would go to Europe with Zaiko. On the end Zaiko ended up by not going to Europe, because of Koffi sending letters to embassadies of Belgium and France claiming that Nyoka Longo used to a Mobutist which made those embassadies denying Zaiko visas for months and Koffi mocking them that they were local.

Hmmmm so there were alot of musicians of QL who wanted to Zaiko. I remember Dolce Somono saying in an interview that Koffi promised him to buy a car for not having joined Zaiko after their perfomance in Gabon '98. I wonder what Jean-Marie Motingia was feeling when Koffi left him behind for the recordings of Loi after having joined Quartier Latin freshly from Zaiko. Back in those days he was Lofombo the most famous bassist in Congo. I guess that he decided to leave Quartier Latin immediatly on that moment and return back to Zaiko. I hope that Ado Yuhe will interview Popolipo. Because I want to know why he left Quartier Latin in 1997 for Zaiko. But I think that he will refuse like Suzuki.

What Pathy Bass said about Binda Bass is true. He wasn't on his and Rocky Blanchard's level. Binda Bass was very lucky imagine if Rocky Blanchard had the visa to go to Europe, then Binda would not have performed at Olympia & Zenith. But Koffi didn't need Blanchard already from the beginning. If he didn't do that nkisi to Binda then Koffi would left Blanchard behind in Kinshasa for the second part of their big Africa-tour of Loi.

Why it took Emeneya 5 years to release an album. It would have been good to hear Goal Average with Zoé Bella, Swet Elesse and Éric Masudi. I guess Goal Average became Le Jour le Plus Long.

Yes, first announced Le Jour le Plus Long as a EP with 5 songs in 2005. But then changed his mind and decided to record the all the songs he prepared as Avantage ya Goal Average into Le Jour le Plus.


Because of the divorce with Liliane and to restart Victoria Eleison in 2003 after that the most decided to stay in Europe. Then in 2004 they could have recorded Goal Average in UK after receiving visas, but Emeneya himself changed his mind on the last minute because he knew that all musicians would ran away. So they were struggling hard in Kinshasa. Then in 2005 he was finally ready to record that album in Kinshasa, but his label Lusafrica (Sony BMG) decided to stop their contract because of the flop of Nouvel Ordre. Then he was looking months long for a recordlabel in Europe but couldn't find one. Then he found Kiki Toure who accepted to produce the album. With the most part being recorded in Kinshasa with Victoria Eleison and another part in  being done in Paris with Dino Vangu, Faugus Izeidi, Auguy Lutula, Olivier Tshimanga, Willy Ebondaki and co adding just little parts. But the release of that album was delayed for months because of Kiki Toure receiving letters from Emeneya's rival to not release that album and those witchdotors cursing that album so that it would be a flop. I remember Emeneya holding a pressconference in Paris somewhere towards the end of 2006 and then the conference being interrupting by gangmembers who said that they were sent by Koffi, they also said that he had to stop attacking Koffi and they would beat him. It were very difficult moments for Emeneya. When he released the album it was not received on the way he hoped. The album was a succes, but he wanted that the would be a massive succes like those of Werrason and co. With him accusing the members of Victoria Eleison, because Emeneya's will was to record the album in the original style of Victoria Eleisomixed with Tabu Ley's Djoum-style. But his musicians refusing, saying that it was for old people and wanting that Wenge Maison Mere-style. On the end all those musicians ended up by ran away when they came for that Europe-tour in 2008. Emeneya said then they wouldn't listen to his musicians anymore after all that mess with Nouvel Ordre (which had orginally to be a solo album) and Le Jour Le Plus Long with him wanting to go back to his roots of Nzinzi and Everybody. So he planned Match Eza Bien which would become This is Me "Eza Nga" after espacing from the death in 2010.

I just realised Joly Mubiala missed this event sadly I could imagine performing with cour de grands his brother would've been impressed.

I hope that I could see Papa Wemba's performace at Forest National in Brussels for his 50th birthday with King Kester Emeneya as his guest. I never saw that videotape and don't know if he filled that hall, because people only cared about Zenith, Bercy & Olympia while Forest National is also a big musichall with 8.400 seats.




I saw a short clip of that concert on Kester interview the vhs was titled megastar and papa wemba was singing Mi Amor correct if I'm wrong I saw Nyoka Longo and Bozi Boziana and in my opinion it's the second time when kester appeared guest in Papa Wemba after 8 years (1991-1999)


Its not the second time. Back in 1993 before the release they released they performed together . In 1992 also which was in Versailles if I remember well and one in 1991 with Koffi being the refree of their Victoria vs Viva match at Bataclan. There were also many concerts of them together in Brussels in the 90s and some in London.




Emeneya always talked good about Papa Wemba, but 1999 was a diffcult year and it looked like peoples were trying to minimize him with Kester's staff saying that he was better to attack Wemba and not be like a "yuma" to praise Wemba everytime.

It becomes irritating the way the young generation and journalists thinks that it's because Koffi Olomide that Papa Wemba, King Kester Emeneya &  Nyoka Longo were dreaming to perform at Olympia & Zenith. I saw a guy posting on facebook "Omoni ndenge Koffi azalaki kolakisa batu nzela". Yes maybe about Bercy which exist since 1984 and wasn't really known to people coming from Zaïre in the beginning, but not Olympia and Zenith. Btw Papa Wemba already performed there in 1992 as guest-star with Peter Gabriel

 They forget that those artists were born in the 50's with their rolmodel Tabu Ley making everybody dream about performing at Olympia and those of the 60's also wondering about it, because of hearing about that show. But artists saw it as a mission impossible to perform there since that it was the boss Bruno Coquatrix himself who mostly contacting artists to perform in his musichall, which why Abeti Masikini (1973 and two times in 1975) was the only one of perform there after Tabu Ley and Sosoliso almost in 1975, but Franco & Tabu Ley killing their band before the concert. It is not like today that you could book the hall easily by yourself. Back in those days it was also a big challenge to fill Olympia because in the 70's you hadn't alot of African people in France and not those diaspora-radios. Sarcelles was full of white people. It was very difficult to see black people on the streets in Paris. You hadn't also those Afroshops. Those newspapers were doing the promotion of those rare African shows at Olympia with then 95% of the public being white. But now you have a big African community in France and the rest of Europe so it isn't difficult anymore to fill it.  From the 90's they became cool and it became easy to book Olympia. And then Koffi Olomide perform there in 1998 which like he opened the door to the rest who wanted to perform there and all other African artists following him. Those videos of Tele Zaire broadcasting Kassav's concerts at Zenith de Paris in the 80s were amazing everybody. They saw performing there as going to the moon and nobody was believing that somebody of Africa could perform there. But Abeti Masikini made it possible by performing there in 1988, doing big promotion in the African and Caraiben community in Paris and RFI. Inviting also Aurlus Mabele, Pepe Kalle and King Kester Emeneya to boost it. In those years the community of Congolese people in Paris was very small and you even more people coming from Brazzaville then those of us. You hadn't also that Schengen Agreement (1995), so it was difficult for people of Belgium who hadn't papers to join them. They have to stop like seeing Koffi as a messias.

France is not the only country to do that. That’s everywhere in Europe (Belgium, Germany, ...). If you wants to be respected then you have to sing in English and French.

I remember Maitre Nono Manzanza he played Congas on Jeanpy Wable Gypson album with Defao in 1989 do you think Reddy was upset when Wemba was talking to him the clip of them both having a conversation was on the Etoile clip.

I don’t know I never noticed it. I only noticed Gina & Reddy conversation at Zenith in the videoclip of Ba Temoins.
