Glad to see "Omba" on the list. I'll check out the Zenith version as I don't remember it.
The Zénith version is the best version. 100%

He comes across as a logical person. Showing maturity in most of the interviews I watch of him. I don't suppose that's a recipe for success in Congolese music - until there's a change in mentality.

I can't help but think that he just doesn't have what it takes to become bigger than he is now. The voice comparison to Fally doesn't help. But also missing the star factor in my opinion. I find that he doesn't bring anything new to the table.

Thoughts?

He should just stop making interviews and make music that's the problem, or try to establish a fanbase in Europe and especially Africa and try to go the international route, Robinio said it best, Congolese people unfortunately are becoming poorer and sometimes you physically can't perform in Congo because they haven't got the money to give you a good cachet, Deplick is very famous but only in Congo, and he seems to not understand that this in the long run will kill him, he could spend 6 months just in Ivory Coast to promote his album since he have a lot of donors there and Ivorians are like Huge lover of Congolese music, but he seems that he care too much about interviews and not enough Marketing, I mean he should just speak about the music but always speaks about Fabro and things that aren't related to music. And Ex Werrason employées need to stop defending Werra, I mean the guy slapped you like you were a little.kid, what do you get by saying "Okomisa Ya Ngiama Masts nayo" in C'Est La famille (one of his songs in Ouverture) insulting Dennis Lessie for his insults of Werra? Think about you, Maison Mère is a closed chapter you are the big man now think about your career. I am a Werrra and Maison Mère fan but I hate when guys like Deplick, Prince, Brigade, Fabregas etc. Défend Werrra like that especially a guy like Prince who said "I won't go to any group cause I only want Maison Mère" the same year he got left with some bullshit money to bury his late mom and after KaKol sent some Zulus to attack him, I mean why? He wasn't even paid what is the reason of all that love?

Congolese Music / Re: MMM... ALBUM SALES
« Last post by Lamusica on Today at 04:55 »
I don't really understand why are people doing this comparison.

Fally did a french pop urban album. France is the n°A market for his album.

Heritier did a rumba album. France is not in his target market.

This is like comparing the sales of a Francis Cabel album in France or iin Nigeria.

I don't know why Congolese people are obsessed with the french mainstream market in France. France is not a rumba land. You don't even have 1 million congolese in France. It's a tiny marlet for rumba, outside of playing in halls and getting mabanga money.

Well said, and frankly this should be atop the list. Different sounds attracting different markets.

Also, following the commercial success of Tokos 1, it was expected that there would be major interest in the second one. Whether or not the music lived up to expectations is another story.

Although sonically his music has changed dramatically, he still has an impact on the African continent. As evidenced by his recent tune with Diamond. And previously his own solo hits like selfie, etc... That alone is reason enough to continue (in his mind).

Someone mentioned it: money. Seems like money is still pouring in, he's now active in Europe, so life is good.

Frankly, there's no age limit to making songs. Whether or not people still enjoy your songs is another thing. I will say though that he's entertaining as an artist/individual. "vieux a lingi ko Kola te" lol
