I think you're not understanding Manzambi94's point. I was among those that loved Rendekita, but the promotion wasn't behind that album to help it succeed. That's why such quality music has become a rarity in our genre because our artists aren't doing the leg work to promote their music like the younger guys and so what's popular is what has the most sales or Youtube views (Ferre, Fally, Fab, Werra, ect).

For people returning from hiatus like Defao or Blasie Bula, they got a buzz because people missed them. But if they don't come with some really good music and an aggressive marketing strategy then that excitement they're currently enjoying will fade. That's the age of the music business we're in right now; sure he's among the best, but what have he done lately?

You right. Even if Music business was always about marketing strategy. But with the social media today the veterans should keep with the evolution if they want to stay relevant instagram, YouTube channels ect... It's not like in Europe and America where  artist are surrounding  by the labels, agents, marketing team

Man everyone is really happy that Defao is back, it’s nice

I know right; with the long absence of an undisputed popular leader in Kin he can take the no. 1 spot. I’ve never listened to a bad album from him despite the hardships  - the most consistent artist
It is not his era amymore

Based on what analysis? Saying it’s the 5th’s era is baseless since so few are truly active and relevant
Facts
Guys I hate to burst your bubble but you must understand that Defao has gone since a lot of time and people move on. If the crowd is quickly forgetting JB for not putting an Album im almost 9 years what do you think Defao will get? I mean you all said Rendekita would be this great album and it flopped. You say Koffi lost his way and he always manages to make success throughout Africa and compete with youngsters, ultimately you said everything of Tokos and how Fally lost contact with his crowd (beware I am not in anyway a Fally fan most of you know I am a huge fan of Ferre) but Fally did crazy numbers. I understand that 80's, 90's music were different from the 00's and the 10's but you mut unerstand that people evolve and tend to quiclly forget if you go away or you are not consistent. And unfortunately withall due respect to DefaoI think his album will flop
See the problem with guys like you you all put stardom and relevance and numbers over quality. So you’re saying Rendekita wasn’t a great album cause it was a commercial flop it wasn’t even Blaise’s fault. And you were one of the people screaming the loudest criticising Fally about the Tokos thing.  Yes Defao has been gone for a while but it’s wrong to write him off, people have been waiting for him for years and the reception he’s received has been great. I’d rather listen to good music and I’m sorry but none even these guys who are “relevant” or do “crazy numbers” are impressing me right now.

Indeed. It seems like you don't have to do quality music to be at the top.

I had to pause to make sure what I was seeing it’s true...can see titties lol...what a generation we’re living in...so called journalists are trying to be more famous than musicians and fighting for views on YT. Sikoyo yo musician oko loba naye nini

bro i just came across a video of hear saying she will continue with music and used the usual BS of musicians that who ever will release this year she will humiliate them they better release next year and things like that
and that supposedly guys of universal music approached her via charles tabu and she has showcases booked already and things like that

this woman was just showing her "surprising"bottom and now she is touring around africa

We've just to wait how his double concerts at Stade Tata Raphael (50.000 seats), Rotana Kin Plaza and Boulevard Triomphale will be. Then we can juge him. It will be a good start for him if he fills the stadium on the two dates. Don't forget that till now none one hasn't performed on his own in a stadium since 2003.

I think that its better for Defao to not release now his album Hommage Au Tabu Ley (where sung songs of Mavuela Somo, Papa Wemba, Bipoli Na Fulu, Papa Wemba, Bozi Boziana and Tabu Ley) which he recently recorded in Paris. But record quickly a new album in Kinshasa with Montana, Kabose, Lofombo & Theo Mbala and trying to release it  before the end of the year or the start of 2020.

So you want Defao to do a Big Stars reunion album? I'm on board with the idea.

The same era Koffi and Werra still making music and successful? Anything is possible
