Congolese Music / Re: Surprising fact about Pouvoir

Musicians are difficult to deal with. Emeneya paid cars for his musicians and did everything to please them, but he only with 7 people in 2003. Adolphe Dominguez lost his head back in 2002 when alot of musicians decided to stay. He even let the rest of Wenge Tonya Tonya return by themselves and stayed in Europe to give the New Jack of Brussels alot of money to get for him Chibida Dumbu, Canard and Papillion back, but it didn't work.

I am reading these stories about the Late Madilu and how he used to treat his band members and must say his style of leadership is rather disappointing, like.  I know its mostly considered bad according to African culture to say something negative about a deceased person.
But in all honesty, I've never rated Madilu as an artiste very highly. I used to wonder why he got so much credit yet to me He was just another average guy, I know he has a big following and agree he was talented but I never saw nothing extra exceptional about him.
 Although dealing with humans can be tricky as @mvulusi96 has given an example of Emeneya, doing things for his band and they still deserted him, but if its true he did things like leaving his band stranded in a foreign country its was just rather shameful as a  leader and an injustice to those band members, its like taking away their dignity. Taking people to Zambia or wherever from DRC then abandoning them in a foreign country its just shameful.

Madilu prepared the songs in 1996-97 with Le Tout-Puissant (Rio Kazadi, Fofo Le Collegien, Ray Junior, Signoria and Adricha Tipo Tipo).

Yeah ,and i think he thanked jb also for the fact he allowed mosaka to write or co write many of the songs with fofo le colle

Ahn ok. He let Titina Al Capone do the animations in Madilu's album while they were busy with recording Titanic.

I see that Madilu thanked Fofo "Le Collegien" Vangu for the arrangement and artistic direction. I guess that they already made a manquette-version in Kinshasa and Caien Madoka, Dally Kimoko, etc. just interpret it in Europe, like Koffi Olomide used to do with some of his songs before 1992.

You have a point. In every major band touring Europe, there will always be at least one member that stays behind when it's time to leave. There's a reason people back at Kin say that Europe is paradise.

Exactly I never sa a whole band returning to Kinshasa after a tour. Only Quartier Latin after a few concerts in France, Switzerland and finish Pas de Faux Pas (I don't really know if the album was already released or recorded in Brazzaville) in late 92 early 93. Because Koffi threatened them if only one want to run away he would never bring them to Europe kiekiekiekie.

In 1995 and 1993 they also returned with the whole band. Also Wenge Musica in 1994.

Pas de Faux Pas was recorded in Brazzaville at Studio IAD, then during the tour in Europe they corrected some vocals and added mabanga with Philipe Guez adding some keyboards.
