Both events got cancelled because of the concert-promoter, not being able to pay the rent of the music-hall

I think BDM is the same as dr. dre's detox. It won't be released. If it was to be released, by now they would have started the promotions but they are quiet.

Do you think Celeo can bring the fans and journalist to his side again like he had in 2007 or is it too late? I remember people enjoying the album, despite him being a limited singer.

But given today's climate of Congolese music, I think he would have a very difficult time. He doesn't seem as commited to music as Fally and the others, who travel to tour and promote their music.

@archos

How come Bill Clinton never toured in Europe? He had some great records after going solo and a sponsorship from Skol. The fact that he is not as big as Fally Ipupa and Ferre really surprises me, given his impact as an atalaku and the impressive work he did outside animation with his songs for Les Marquis de Masion Mere.

first thing which blocked celeo's rise is that he was unable to promote his work in europe because he was denied visas on influence of....then he started having personal problems and sponsors letting him down under pressure, so he had to sell a lot of things to fund another album and from then he was turned into a topic of mockery,mockery is something very difficult to turn around these days in our music,as soon as a stereotype of your bad situation is stuck in people's minds its very hard to change it no matter what you do

Yeah, Celeo could have been far in his solo-career if he had European papers. He was close to all those guys who were doing Coupe Decale and those Congolese singers and rappers who were born here and having succes in France & Belgium. He could have take alot of profit from it, more than Fally who became close to them because of David Monsoh.

Alot of people felt sorry for Celeo, for the way he was forced out the band with alot of bandleaders, collegues of G5 and journalists (Yves Abdallah, Mamy Ilela, etc.) supporting his solo-career. But it changed quickly changed when he became broke 2009-10 and it became worser when his conflict started with Fally Ipupa, Sankara Dekunta and Bil Clinton who claimed that his children were handicapped which isn't even true, but people believing it. With Celeo more becoming a polemique-guy because of responding them, instead of putting his energy on his solo a career.




Nzoto na Nzoto was a huge succes and they were inviting him for big festivals and events in Europe, but everytime they were refusing to give him visas. He wasn't even able to go to Brazzaville,where he was inviting for a big event organised by Claudia Sassou. His producer Kiki Toure made alot of money with that album, but Celeo didn't knew his rights.


After a year, he started slowly to sell his cars, clothes, etc. and people started to mock him, claiming that he became broke and Maison Mere taking advangtage of it to attack him (Heritier, Sankara & Kakol). Then in 2010, he had a chance to get French papers, when he came to mix Yes We Can in France. (He came with help from his ex'manager Mpova Music who was then close to Kabila). But he refused, saying that he couldn't betray his country and he was eager to prove Maison Mere, Bill Clinton, etc. a point.Thinking that Yes We Can would be a succes like Nzoto Na Nzoto. In meantime guys like Jessy Matador (who used to be his fan) were inviting to their concerts and Les Jumo went to collaborate with him.



Then when he returned his sitituation became more worser, a conflict started between him and Koffi Olomide, He felt out with Mpova Music (who weren't promoting his album well), Fally's staff and Maison Mere spreading false stories, that he was sleeping in a restaurant and stuff like that.
