Congolese Music / Problem with Clan Wenge
« on: November 11, 2018, 19:15 »
Problem with Clan Wenge is that many fans want to make their "guy" the saint. Whether we are talking four people
Adolphe Dominguez
Blaise Bula
JB Mpiana

These four especially, people have been trying one of them as he is the saint and the other ones are the devils and that is not true at all. Here is something I wrote some while back and it rings pretty true. It also included Alain Makaba and Didier Masela

Here was back in 2015
Wenge Music was bound to split. JB Mpiana is too arrogant and Werrason was too thuggish to be together for a long time. Adolphe is just a pure clown. Blaise Bula seemed too cold blooded. Alain Makaba was focus on music than fame. Didier Massela is too complicated.

Put these men together, you had a great team but have a pretty messy crew. After the split, you see the great flaws with them. JB Mpiana is so arrogant and he has a tendency to be dismissive. On many of his interviews, you see that kind of behavior with him. With Didier Massela, you can see that he is hard to understand and he has some "mood" problems especially when he speaks about Werrason and JB. In my opinion, Didier Massela resents JB and Werrason very much. During the Wenge reunion, I had a feeling that Massela and Werrason still look at each other as enemies.

I like Werrason and he is a good singer but he is a thug. His body language and his demeanor seem very thuggish to me. Furthermore, look at the behavior of Sankara, it says it all. Werrason seems thuggish and his folks act so like that themselves. He kind of reminds me of 50 Cent. BTW it does look like Werrason is a huge fan of 50 Cent. One interview, you see Werrason wear a shirt showing 50 cent. In many ways, they are similar. They both hold grudges. Werrason resents almost every former musician of his. Think about Ferre Gola, Serge, Baby Ndombe, Brigrade, and just recently Heritier. His behavior is a whole like 50 cent.

Adolphe is a good musician but he is a clown in a sense where very few people take him seriously and they see him a shadow and a phemonen. This is why his band Wenge Tonya Tonya is a joke now and few people have interest in him. I can notice very little about him. That says something. Adolphe's personality is kind of flat. He is not a bad guy but it is also a turnoff. That is my view of Adolphe.

Alain Makaba has always focused on music rather than fame and nonsense. once he got a little fame, he must have angered Werrason. But Makaba always focused on music. Sure he does not have the fame of JB Mpiana and Werrason but he has a solid post-Wenge career.

Blaise Bula is the most cold blooded man out of this messy crew. You can see with Blaise Bula that he is cold and inconsiderate. He does not care what anyone thinks but he seems content with throwing digs. Case in example with his beef with Reddy Amisi. Reading his body language, he is very indifferent and he seems like a snake with a good face. Partially with Bula's education and his other adventures, he has only become more cold blooded. He was always like this during the wenge days but it is much more going in his life today.

Everyone in Clan Wenge has their good and bad. No one is better than the other. Clan Wenge fans need to get that in their stubborn heads.

I wonder if Tutu Callugi was in Wenge Maison Mere, I think he would have fitted in well. I feel like Werrason would have had a easier time because Tutu Callugi was very creative in his animations and he knew how to put people down.

I think of this because of Coco Mandimba of Werrason from Pentagone of Wenge Musica BCBG

BTW notice how Werrason enjoys dancing alongside Adolphe Dominguez. Also Werrason enjoyed Tutu Callugi's animations in the song.


Title suggests that Sankara is mad that ex-WMM musicians got to explain their stories.

Make your list if you want.

Michael Jackson would have been 60 years old on August 29. His life was cut short on June 25, 2009. He was a great talent but had a lot of controversies in his life. His music is nothing but greatness and strength. Being a major introvert, he putted his energy on great music. He gave it all. He had something to give still.

I give my song Thriller as my homage to the King of Pop Michael Jackson.

Congolese Music / Brigade and Celeo Scram beef continues
« on: August 27, 2018, 00:54 »

Looks like he has beef with Ferre Gola as well.

Listen to this interview and make your comment.


Why are Djuna Djanana and Nyoka Longo having beef now? What is the cause? Papa Wemba or what?

Congolese Music / New interview from Bouro Mpela
« on: August 11, 2018, 17:06 »

It was in New York City. Bouro actually manages to speak decent English considering it is limited.

He goes to say that musicians running for deputy in Kinshasa as adventures and are only looking for personal gain and nothing serious and profound. He cuts this woman when she tries to ask him about Koffi going to say that he is not looking into creating unneccesary controversy.

No autotune and just raw voice of Werrason. Werrason actually sounded nice in this song. Also the choirs were excellent. The hip hop effect  and the rapping was nice in this song. I wish Werrason could do songs like this than the ones that he did in 7 Jours.

Werrason and Sankara are emotional before they see the body of ADT's body
Take a look

Congolese Music / Zairian life in Europe in 1992 Special
« on: July 31, 2018, 19:20 »


He starts to talk about ADT's death from 25:19. The journalist was not too happy because he wanted to ask him before JF would make a comment.
39:00, he starts to say what sins that Werrason did, "God Forgives", makes a prediction that Werrason's music career will end, fire of God will enter Werrason's life, Werrason will ask for forgiveness and Werrason's wife is part of the dark world. He says that Werrason killed ADT at 49:07-49:11.

He goes to say that Koffi, JB Mpiana and Werrason are killers and have destroyed lives of many others.

After weeks of insulting each other  ;D ;D, you can see Mosaka and Sankara together again. How did their friendship begin? I really wonder.
