Ahhh ok because I was thinking about the Clan Zaiko and/or Clan Viva vs Clan Wenge in terms of influence and quality of the time who was best for the genre but when I was thinking of it I wasn’t sure who would even come under those titles so thanks a lot for your explanation

The impact of Viva La Musica was to big. It was from 1977 to 1982 the most popular band of Zaire and it came with La Sape which influenced a whole generation. The same for Victoria Eleison which dominated the music-scene of Zaire from 1982 to 1988. It are mostly those coming from Langa Langa Stars, Choc Stars and Anti Choc who see themselves as Clan Langa Langa (they never mention it as Clan Zaiko). Which is I think mostly due to Evoloko & Bozi returning to Zaiko after their departures and their image being to much linked to Zaiko. Musicfans were excepting Evoloko rejoining Zaiko again back in 1986 or 1987 (I don't remember) when Langa Langa Stars started to have difficulties and not working with VEVE, which once shows again how Evoloko's image was connected to Zaiko. On the side it's sad, because back from 1971 to 1974 he was Zaiko's biggest star along with Gina Efonge. He had succes with his Isifi Melodia in 1976 along with Popolipo, Djuna Djanana and Vadio Mamebga (after the departure of Wemba, Bozi and Mavuela). But the candle went slowly out when Papa Wemba formed Viva La Musica in 1977.


Evoloko used to Zaiko's image and Papa Wemba (back then called Jules Presley) was in his shadow. Then when they formed Isifi Lokole, to surprise of everybody it was Wemba who came the main star with his hitsong Amazone. It made Evoloko jealous to Wemba and it became worser when they switched Isifi's rehearshal place from Matonge (Wemba's neighbourhood) to Yolo (Evoloko's neighbourhood). Wemba then not being happy and trying to manipulate Mavuela and Bozi to form Yoka Lokole (since that he wasn't believing in his self).

Funny that Papa Wemba was one of the co-founders of Zaiko. It was a blessing in disguise for Zaiko when Papa Wemba left. Zaiko ended up having big groups. It was also a blessing for Papa Wemba because he made stars like Reddy Amisi, Djuna Djanana, Debaba and Kester Emeneya.
Just a question but you see the people that were made in Viva and Yoka/Isifi Lokole are they counted as Clan Zaiko or not?
