When he came to Zimbabwe he brought the house down.Soukouss Immediate was a monster hit .Even now when you play Extra Ball at a Zim party everyone dances.Extra ball was way ahead if its time

That was quite an experience for sure. Mabele, Salomon, Yondo Sister, Kandabongo Man, Tshala Muana, Mbilia Bel and Pepe Kalle used to be very popular in Zimbabwe in the 1990s. Koffi Olomide, Wenge Clan, Extra Musica, Zaiko, Papa Wemba etc only gained popularity in the country after Zim soldiers participated in the second Congo War. Otherwise Mabele and company were the earliest ambassadors of Rhumba in Zim. On a lighter note, I remember vividly the story of this unfortunate married woman who attended Arlus Mabele's show in Harare without her husband's permission. The lady was divorced after a picture of her dancing erotically, soukouss style with Arlus was published by a popular magazine.

I remember there was rumours that Teka and Eboa Lotin was going to join QL after the danger de mort tour. Is there any truth in this?


About Eboa Yes, but not Teka. Koffi tried to poach Flamme Kapaya Heritier, Kakol & Eboa Lotin when they were on tour in Europe, because of Koffi being furious that they recruited Patience and him then promising to himself that he would destroy Wenge Maison Mere. But they all refused the offer, Flamme Kapaya was close to accept the offer, but he changed his mind when it was publied by the press. Then in 2007 he tried again to get Kakol, Heritier, Eboa Lotin and also J3 trought King Tekila after having poached Gessac, Hono, Joss and Gabbana in his band, but it didn’t work.

I would like to hear Michel Bass's story about Maison Mere, but it seems that he would go. He one of the rare bassists who tours around the world and record albums every week with white people and artists coming from DR Congo, Cameroun and the French West-Indies. Those jazz-lessons in Kinshasa and the formation of Gode Lofombo before joining Wenge did him some good. He's not like those other bassists and guitarists who like to talk much, claiming that they are the best, etc. Michel Bass didn't stay long in Maison Mere, but got a big reputation trought his session-work with 5eme artists (Ferre Gola, Fally Ipupa, etc.) and he even performed. I didn't even knew his name when he was in Maison Mere, I knew his name when I saw him in the making off of Droit Chemin.

You might have missed his interview. Here is.



Bro, that is Mimiche Bass, not Michel Bass. Michel Bass was the guy who replaced Mimiche Bass in Maison Mere when Mimiche decided to stay in Europe. Teka Diobanza even said that he did the test in Maison Mere the same day with him and then Mimiche giving the bass guitare to Michel.

I also wrote that alot of people think that Mimiche played Tindika Lokito and some even Alerte Generale while its Michel Bass.




This is Michel Bass
So there was Michel Bass, I have to admit i had no idea about Michel Bass.I only know of Mimiche Bass and I have always thought that Mimiche and Michel are one and the same whenever someone mentions the two names. Lol. How long was Michel Bass in Maison Mere?

I think that Corean Polystar, Michel Bass and Teka Diobanza wouldn't get the recognition they have today if they decided to stay in London and follow Les Marquis. Alot of people think till this day that Mimiche Bass played on Tindika Lokito and some even on Alerte Generale. Corean Polystar started get known after Temoinage with he, Mogratana, Kapaya, Mimiche, Ali Mbonda, Thierry Synthe and Papy Kakol forming a dream-team of instrumentists. If Teka Diobanza decided to go back to Kinshasa with Maison Mere he would have been on another level. Whose that guy who snitched him to get no vocals on Temoinage ? Was it Kakol or Kabose ? On the other side it was a stupid decision from Teka to stay in Europe, because they went to re-record Temoinage nearly the end of 2005 and Roi David, Celeo & Kene Kene adding new animations. 70% of the animations on Temoinage were different than those they did in the first stage of the recording.
