It's a culture of self denial..... These are the repercussions of  racism. When people around you don't look at your race as part of humanity.

I don't agree. Congo is full of black people who speak an African language nothing like Angola where people will look at you weird if you don't speak portuguese, the problem is that it is ingrained in Congolese culture to say things like "kotela" to become more clear and so on, it is just stupidity, you can get cancer if you bleach but people see it as a good thing

Ado Yuhe is very limited when interviewing those legends. If you listen well to the interview, Zinga gave him indirectly multiple occasions to ask questions to go further. But Ado didn't take those opportunities. For example how the original Victoria Eleison of les 12 apotres used to be and how Emeneya managed to made it a band of his own, when Zinga talked about the way Denewade showed the contract that Emeneya said with Veve in front of Santana Mongoley and Debaba in Brazzaville, which made both guys furious and Debaba form his own band Historia Musica with Historia Musica (I remember watching an interview of Emeneya in 2000, where he was still mad about that and saying "Ba Debaba wana, lelo akoma frere" looking furious). Also Ado often cut him when he was about to go something important. There was a point where he said that Verckys asked him why Manuaku Waku let him go to Victoria Eleison, after him hearing drumming on the song Benedictions and was about to explain why he left Grand Zaiko Wawa but suddenly Ado went to cut him. Also when he was about to talk to Tofolo Kitoko's (R.I.P.) importance in Victoria Eleison (I'm sure that Ado doesn't even know him).
Lol. Ado has sort of rehearsed the questions he asks these musicians from: How did you join the group? Did you use to get paid? How many albums did you play in while in a group? And now he has introduced the who is and what is being an author and composer and then ask about the acoustics then ends with what's your future project. All the while focusing on just one group that someone seemingly made a name neglecting the other groups. Am pretty sure the day he will welcome Mboka Liya it will just be about Wenge BCBG neglecting for example his time or barely touching on his time in Original Wenge, Big Star and Maison Mere. A journalists who can't ask follow up questions most likely doesn't do research before an interview. Which is sad coz he has a big platform to become more respected if he atleast went an extra mile with his interviewing skills.

Congolese Music / Re: ROBINIO

I don't even remember the last time Robinio released a generique, let alone anything that didn't try to capitalise on the Afrobeats/Afro-Congo sound. I don't know any of his singers, I don't know any of his instrumentalists. I don't even know anyone in his band anyway.

quiet dissapointing, I think there should be a post to discuss reasons why theres a culture of skin bleaching with Congolese artists.

I blame Michael Jackson  :D
To be fair Michael had Severe Vitiligo

Congolese Music / ROBINIO

Now that Robinio does single handedly does generique, what are Showman, Cinq Chantier and that Bill copycat doing to save their spot? Furthermore, do you know a single rumba Singer's name from Robinio's group?

I feel bad for George Floyd, but, in the African context I want to ask what African American's have done for Africa and African issues. They are almost completely absent from any issues concerning the Mother Continent. Even when I studied there, at a prestigious High School in D.C. , I felt more discriminated against by African Americans than any other group.

Despite all this, Africans will drop all their domestic issues and go protest on behalf of African Americans. I can never forget the day Barack Obama tried to convince our leaders to accept homosexuality, luckily the Kenyan president was there to remind him of our African values. ( I got nothing against gays)

Point is; for once Lets Put Africa first.

Let America sort out its own domestic issues.

Bro a human being died. It is not about Africa or America, you know who told me about the Chinese kicking Africans out? An African-American. Yes they are not really our brothers anymore because they have lost any African language but white cops do not care if youare African or African American they shoot you for example read this story is about an African student from Guinea who got killed by the white american police and that his killers got not charged

The hate of the African community it is a tool of white people to put black against blacks the same way Europeans in South Africa molded South African to be racist against other Africans, you are part of the older generation the Akon those guys who were get discriminated for being African but trust me things are changing.
