Why doesn't Blaise Bula use streaming to this advantage promoting that way. Also social media.

Who will follow him on the streets ? He doesn't have the charisma Marie Paul had back in the days when he was giving Wenge 4x4 on his own a hard time. Eeeh Marie Paul Roi Pele 1000 buts with his long hair and taking that soccer-ball  with him and then all those people following him in a bizarre way. Mann that was not normal anymore. So crazy how that power ended. Politicians and musicians were using him to fill stadiums and open-air places. Their a moment that concertpromoters didn't knew where to let peform him, because there were always to much people following. Back in 1998 when ADFL organised that "Tokufa pona Congo-meeting" at Stade des Martyrs, the stadium was already filled, but Marie Paul entering made the stadium being filled also on the field, on the moment that Werrason started already dancing on the generique of Intervention Rapide. All Wenge 4x4 musicans can say what Marie Paul did to them during that concert at Nsele back in 1993. Just to say how powerful Marie Paul was. Miel doesn't also have that charisma Le Phenomene had. Le Vieux l'An 200, Mbonge, Nkoy, pffff azo sakana. Don't also forget that Werrason semented a big fanbase during Wenge 4x4 and the time before Intervention Rapide.

Miel doesn't have a big fanbase or a song that had a huge succes before leaving Maison Mere, like Fally, Ferre and co did. That era of people following blindly pastors, traditional wrestlers, politicians and bandleaders who had/have that power is over. A big secret to that is that you have to convince Bana Tshangu, people living in Kisenso, Malueka, Barumbu, Kingabwa, Ngiri-Ngiri, Kasa-Vubu, Lingwala, Ngaba, Matete & Lemba and those dangerous gangs and the shegues, like Marie Paul & Werrason used to do to be more popular then their rivals (Wenge 4x4 & JB) who were more close to the elite. Papa Wemba had also the same tactic, hence why he was like the chief of those shegues, just before Werrason stole him that role. Sam Tshintu started also to  follow that path, by becoming close to those shegues and gangs, but that ngulu-affaire ruined everything. I don't think that Miel can convice those people. We are in the days that people in Kinshasa doesn't pay alot attention on music anymore, like they used to do with them following musicians for free. If you want to succeed easily in the Congolese music-scene, then you have to be close to girls and have them behind you. Ask Nyoka Longo, Koffi Olomide & Lita Bembo and they will explain it.

If that nkisi will work for Miel, then he has to profit from that occassion to release classic albums in those 10 years they gave him. Look at how people forgot Marie Paul, just because he didn't had the chance to release classic-albums and alot of unforgettable songs. He started to do that on the moment when his succes started to end. Werrason also. After Temoinage or let say after Alerte Generale he didn't gave 100% anymore like he used to do when Bill, Ferre were around with him more focusing in promoting the new singers instead of focusing on himself, releasing classic albums and classic songs, while he could have easily step his level as a legend up by releasing every 2 years unforgettle solo-albums, like his collegue Koffi used to do in the 90's and profiting from the succes he had, having masses of people following on the street and Bana Tshangu being behind him. If that concert-ban didn't take place in Europe, then I don't think that Werra's impact would have go down so quickly.

kiekie, ndeko Mvulusi turning threads into history sessions. Mysticism is the bane of progress in Congolese society, and will seemingly always be, more so (dark/insidiously) than other African cultures.

I love my culture, but our values as a whole are often misguided and shortsighted. From the music & political leaders alll the way down to the chégues

The only spiritual things they need to rely on is their religion if not that then they should work hard and if it doesn't work it then it wasn't meant to be. All that Witchcraft for little success. Witchcraft has never forced me listen to a song or watch a video, so I don't know what they are using it for.

As a fan of his work, I have to say this is quite subpar compared to his other rhumbas. His voice isn't like before - and on top of that he's using autotune.

Acoustics are nice, which is something he always delivers on.

He was that young kid Werrason recruited as sololist in the band with him always playing Sous Sol in public concerts in 2007 & 2008. Then from 2009, Werrason started to use him seriously with him sharing the solist-role along with Kimbangu. Then Werrason brought him to Zenith 2010, but after the tour he decided to stay. It seems that he played some sebene or lines on Techno Malewa Suite & Fin, but that Werrason deleted it from the album, like he did to Bonbon Kojack's vocals who also left.



from 9:34 min him presenting Werrason

Going to have to unfollow him IG for sometime, kiekie. The man blows up my feed reposting every single submission for his hashtag challenges whenever he releases something
The kiname challenge was the worst.... remember when I did that topic about how it was getting on my nerves....

His name is Christan Airbag if I am not wrong, he played the lead in Mayi Ya Sika even appearing towards the end of the video on the "Na mutoki nde oko zwa"

He had some paper problems, and he could have gone back to Werra but her mother pressure him to stay in Europe for getting those documents.
He was asked by an interviewer if he would have gone back to MM but he denied saying he doesn't want to take jobs away lol, so he decided to stay in Europe and play Congolese gospel music he is still very good you can follow him on Instagram, even though he is way of a low key guy

he's talking about Bob Solo "Petit Poussin"


Bob solo who is he?
