Congolese Music / Re: Wenge Musica Maison Mere debut

That's right archos and masatomo, these are some of the underhand methods Werra used to kick out Didier and Adolphe so that he remains a solo artist and Ferre too was part of the game so that he could be number 2, you could see when he was accompanying Adolphe on stage that he didn't respect Adolphe much, there was one show in Europe where Ferre was singing Adolphe's song and he paused the song to start apologising to the crowd for Werra's absence saying ''President Werra, this and that,Adolphe just kept quiet'' I thnk he knew what was going on and I feel Didier Lacoste and Serge Mabiala also felt belittled by Werra that's why they kept going and coming,Lacoste had initially gone with Adolphe to form Wenge Tonya Tonya.
I hear you DJ Sly but Werrason was the clear leader of Maison Mere. Yes it never said Werrason and Wenge Musica Maison Mere but it was Werrason just like Wenge BCBG was clearly the group of JB Mpiana hence why Blaise and others left. Werrason allowed Adolphe to just do his thing. Werrason tried to act like it could be equal when as Archos pointed out Werrason wanted to embrass Adolphe and Didier Masela. But I wonder what was the actual thing that led to Didier Masela and Adolphe Dominguez to leave Wenge Musica Maison Mere (Wenge Maison Mere).

FPK,I followed the Madilu and TPOK story keenly back in the days that's why I concluded Madilu was too ambitious and probably disrespectful to the elders he found at TPOK, he found most of them there. When it comes to vocals, yes,Madilu had an exceptional voice but so did  Josky who had actually been in the band longer than Madilu and by the time TPOK was ceased, Josky had more vocals in TPOK songs than Madilu.

On Pepe Kalle and Madilu, they were good friends infact Pepe Kalle liked Madilu's style and voice, if I remember well, I read that Pepe gave Madilu about £500 to kickstart his solo career and I remember very well seeing the two of them live on stage in the main arena at the Zambia International Trade Fair in the 80's,they came together to two consecutive trade fairs, Madilu did a few songs on his own backed by Empire Bakuba.
Actually you make some great points. Madilu made a song with Empire Bakuba sans Pepe Kalle but it was said that Pepe Kalle and Madilu made actual studio songs together. But who knows. We will probably never know. That is life.

About Madilu being arrogant, there is definitive truth to that. Back in 2003 with Afro Pop, Madilu made some indirect accusations that Josky and Simaro were just puppets and even accused them of not respecting Franco at all. Ouch. Madilu accused them of using Franco for their own glory. Quite some accusations.

Madilu was one unlucky man. He has had injustice throughout his life. He was blamed for the break up of OK Jazz when the blames goes on Simaro for not being an effective leader. Madilu was clearly a big Tabu Ley and worse actually played for him and Tabu Ley never gave one shit about him leading Madilu to play for OK Jazz and even Madilu stated that himself. So sad. So many people were jealous of Madilu because he was a better singer and star than them.
Maybe he was just too ambitious like most young men in a band full of older people. He wanted to carry on flying Franco's flag but he probably didn't do a good thing by wanting to be TPOK's President because he was not the only star in the band,maybe Josky remaining TPOK President would have made sense but the fact that Lutumba was Franco's right hand man all those years meant Lutumba was the rightful person to take over as band President deputised by Josky or Ndombe and Madilu as Chef d'orchestre maybe the band wouldn't have broken up but Madilu was too confident and had the backing of Franco's family and that was it, he basically undermined Lutumba and others although they remained friends.

Are you not off base. But that goes on Lutumba. You are likely right which again means the fault goes on Lutumba. Simaro allowed Josky and Madilu to even entertain the idea of being the leader. Simaro should be stern and let everyone know that the man was him but he did not as the result Madilu and Josky felt that they could be leaders. Madilu was clearly in the Luambo camp all along. In fact Madilu and Franco had such a good relationship that the family adored Madilu. Madilu had great confidence and it certainly further a already drama filled band that was OK Jazz.

Regardless, Madilu was feared by others including Tabu Ley which is the reason why no one took him seriously. They were jealous because Madilu had a more powerful voice. In fact he was more superior in the baritone than Pepe Kalle. In fact Madilu and Pepe Kalle's friendship might have costed the OK Jazz. Some people say that Pepe Kalle and Madilu were good friends and made some music during the early 1990s (don't know if we will ever know) but some say that was one source of the end of OK Jazz.

Here is the debut of Werrason with his Wenge Musica group.
The original title of the video is right,you've messed it up, this was the debut of Wenge Musica Maison Mére, a band that Werrason,Didier Masela and Adolphe Dominguez created with major contribution of Christian Mabanga,Werra, Didier and Adolphe were all leaders.
True but it was clearly Werrason's group from the beginning. Yes Adolphe and Didier were founders but the leader was Werrason. From day one to now.

Congolese Music / Re: LOL LOBESO STOP THAT BULLSHIT PLEASE
« on: February 09, 2014, 20:41 »
I know Lobeso is not a great french speaker. I am also not great with my French but I would be and Lobeso is much better speaking french than his boss Werrason.

Look here Werrason could barley speak just French. Lobeso did not do great but compare to this, I would give Lobeso the win

Congolese Music / Re: MEJE 30 MARRIES?
« on: February 08, 2014, 17:26 »
Shameful and just shameful. Tshala Muana is the reason why Meje30 has even a career. But she may turn out to be a Koffi Olomide. I would not be surprised. I mean Koffi has never thanked Papa Wemba for getting him started. I have a feeling that Meje30 will do the same thing. So sad.

« on: February 08, 2014, 16:44 »


THIS IS THE REAL FERRE, I THINK THIS SONG WAS A BIG SUCCESS FOR HIS CAREER THE ARRANGEMENT 10/10, INSTRUMENTALISTS GREAT. I THINK IT WAS VERY SUCCESSFUL BECAUSE HE PLAYED IN THE STYLE EMPIRE BAKUBA BUT IN A MODERN WAY KIND OF REMINDED ME OF MONANO. MAJOR RESPECT TO PASCAL POBA AS WELL FOR WRITING THIS. BUT FERRE NEEDS TO DO SONGS LIKE THIS AND NOT THE REPETITIVE RUBBISH RUMBA SUNG SOLELY AND ACOUSTIC.
Are you crazy? This is the same style that I have been hearing on his two latest albums. The song sounds so much like this if not more. Give me a break. Plus at least Ferre has a sound.

I guess he is facing backlash from trying to pretend when he can speak perfect French.

Congolese Music / Re: SPECIFICALLY FOR EMOBCBG
« on: February 04, 2014, 19:20 »
The kind of music I like, in summary is:

1. Coordinated group singing. Not one artist singing a 10 minute song alone. That can apply in rap and rnb:

2. The use of drum, solo, mi-solo, bass and rythm effectively in a song. Not just an acoustic guitar with one other instrument:

3. In live performances, the artists should not only be melodic, but energetic and flexible to cheer todays fans:

4. Any cd produced by a group should have a balanced sebene vs ballad ratio.

On number two you forgot the bongos and piano.

EMO I agree with you 100 percent. But that may never happen as long garbage music is tolerated.

These women like Grace Mbizi clearly are not journalistic in any way. They are just groupies looking to pretend they are journalists.
