Rumba trap lol. Considering how trap is pop music right now, I won't be surprised if it blows up in Congo or even with the diaspora.

Yes, he mentioned that basically all the old members were distabilised which led to them leaving and remember Waney Pecho sang about the dakar incidence in the song Epaka with Favela Stars.

Man sometimes you guys are just to harsh, FALLY hadn't had the best lyrics but he paid hommage to Franco, I mean when FALLY has been known for having great lyrics outside of droit chemin? Plus most of his fanbase is not even Congolese so they don't know what he is saying

@21 minute mark, He says when they went for the proclamation tour in Dakar, the producer paid them 1million CFA Franc (this was despite the fact that the producer still owed them money from the albums Correction and Embargo). So Jullien Antonio as the Chef of the group rebelled against the way the producer (who i believe is Denide Production) was not honouring his end of the contract. He even refused to take part in the clips of Proclamation. Thats how they suspended him for indiscipline and then the producer influenced Kevin Mbouande and Biraman to get rid of the founders and reconstitute the group with new recruits under the leadership of Kevin Mbouande but that they also suffered the same fate of the producer not properly paying them according to the contract.

He also talks about the death of Ziggy Moise the basiste (played bass in all 4 of Patrouille des Stars albums i.e. Obus Kanga Bissaka, Embargo, Corrections and Proclamation) who passed away and how Denide the producer wouldnt send anything for the funerals of Moise.

That explains a lot, I always wondered why Julien only appeared in two clips for the Proclamation. I'm assuming Waney Pecho left for the same reason, because he only appeared in the clip of the generique filmed in Dakar. His parts were interpreted in clips by dancer Moustapha Thuram.

Indeed he had a group which had some faces people see until today unfortunately i cant picture it anymore but i saw images of him rehearsing back in the days he vent went to perform in brazza i think but then the promoter called seguin to make sure he had left  and how could jb take it,produc ers feared jb  werra wemba a lot
and seguin reported that bikou was performing there and talking bad about jb so jb trusting seguin gave the typical call of congolese leaders when they want to block somebody ,but after he performed again in kin then went back to uk to prepare album,but i am sure he was scared by how difficult it can be to be a leader in drc,having to handle surgeries of parents of your musicians,births, and all sort of things
thats how maison mere guys suceed better,they prepare people in case 6months before leaving then play mind games with the boss

I was also surprised to learn that he actually formed his own band and recorded an album that still hasn’t been released, I always thought he went straight back to Europe after leaving BCBG. Ex BCBG members really have the worst luck in terms of solo careers, I’m skeptical whether he should release that album because it will sound quite dated.
Bikou was really already getting 12 during the Anti Terri studio sessions.

I disagree, I don't think is bad luck, the only ex Wenge Bcbg member who can I say had bad luck in solo career was Caludji, but if you take Abraham, Abel, Chai, Bogus, Djino etc. They either left because they had problem with the staff or if they really wanted a solo career kinda relaxed or change career as soon as thing got though, people always say Werra kids thrive and it is true but they also forget that Fabregas made at least one Album who flopped before Ya Mado and success, Iif Wenge BCBG and Maison Mère were brothers I think that BCBG's kids are the kids of the rich dad who gives them everything and never ever make them do anything turning these kids to be lazy and with no drive once older, while Maison Mère is that rich dad who will not give you a cent and will force you to go on your own at a young age, making you understand that life is difficult from the beginning, I think that Héritier, Ferré, Fabregas, and all the future guys who will leave Wenge wouldn't have a shot of becoming successful solo artists if they went to BCBG

I really hope Fally paid the Luambo family handsomely for this “Non” sample.

I don't know if he paid them, but when it got on streaming platforms, when you open the credits you can see Franco's name in there.

They should’ve never agreed to let him use it in the first place. Franco’s songs are sacred. Duets with him and Madilu are timeless classics that shouldn’t be touched. This is crap.

Agreed. And same with @CM PRINCE. Young people could get to know Franco's music.

Hey but look at it this way it’s helped the younger generation discover some of Franco’s work and I’ve seen people on social saying that they listened the song Non.
