Apparently, I have been getting high information from some people from Facebook about rumors that Congolese government will not honor Kester Emeneya or some refuse. The reason was that Kester Emeneya refused to sing for Joseph Kabila Kabange although he did in 2006. Well if true, some Kester may get mad. But I am not sure if it is true but it is a major rumor in some facebook groups.

I heard from a friend of Kester that when he formed Victoria Elesien, Verckys was livid and wondered how this could happen.

Congolese Music / Re: EMENEYA enseigne à l'Université

Thanks Archos. I meant to say UK. Because England, Ireland, and Scotland are together as Great Britian or United Kingdom.

What is also important to point out is that I know Kenyans and even Tanzanians are aware of the likes of Lokassa Ya Mbongo and Dally Kimoko and even Diblo Dibala than actual Congolese folks themselves. Also Kenyans (especially the bantu ones) are naturally into Congolese music. In fact I know Simba Wanyika was a big fan of Dr Nico and they used their music to make their music. I know that also some Kenyan musicians clearly use the music of Franco and Koffi Olomide as inspiration to make their music so beautiful. The only difference is that Kenyan musicians usually use their language which is Swahili.

Clearly here he was teaching the class to speak Lingala and he did by using his songs as the pilot to begin his mission of getting people to speak Lingala. My guess it was either in England or Belgium.

Archos thanks for the info. However the mabanga was somewhat around during the 1970s and 1980s but the difference was then they usually were speaking of the musicians.

I know Pepe Kalle loved to speak about Coco Mandimba who was a diamond collecter in Katanga. Very interesting info. I know a lot of Muluba people are based in Katanga. I would not be surprised if part of Pepe's family was from Katanga.


Yet Werrason and Kester Emeneya were said never to see eye to eye although many and myself included say Werrason was Kester of Wenge Musica. I wonder why Werrason and Kester never got along?

For many Kenyans, it is Koffi who is the most popular. I can say this because every day on this facebook group RHUMBA VIBES, it seems every minute they are speaking about Koffi as if he is the messiah. Sometimes it is ridiculous. So many people enjoy Koffi quite a bit. Of course you have some who love Franco but most prefer Koffi very strongly.

Papa Wemba actually has been making better music than everyone else. Papa Wemba is the one who has managed to still make great music. Papa Wemba was at his best during the 1994-98 period. But Wemba still makes great music even today's standards.

Interesting point Archos. It is good and accurate analysis.

I am curious to know what led to Patient Kusangila going religious?

Congolese artists should not plan any concert in South Africa because there Combattants there are much more aggressive than in Europe.

Wow impressive from Werrason. He sounds very much like Emeneya so it totally makes sense for Werrason to give hommage. Since their voices are sort of similiar, Werra should be the one doing Kester Emeneya songs.

However let's not forget that Kester and Werra were never in friendly terms though they made a song or two together. Like here.

But it looks like Werrason and Kester Emeneya never gave any respect to one another. I am actually surprised considering that Werrason says himself that he really identify voice of Kester Emeneya though in my opinion Kester is a superior singer to Werrason. I also know Kester seemed to be impressed with Werrason when Werra was young. So for them not to get along is shocking to some and even myself that they were never friends.

Archos, I am curious to know how did the Kester Emeneya-Werrason beef began?

I would say the one who made the most success as a religious singer is Carlyto Lassa. Many love him more than the others I mentioned and others mentioned.

It is true Burkina Faso is not exactly religious. Not long ago, he was part of the work of Kanda Bongo Man. Only five years ago. He still participates in Secular music but not the way he used to though.
