Do you think signing with them woulda made him bigger in world music? Do you think they woulda made him water his music down like Papa Wemba had to in the late 80s/early 90s or do you think he wouldnt been able to still give us Force de Frappes, Effrakatas and such?

Congolese Music / Translators
« Last post by BrazzaBoy on Today at 01:59 »
Just wanted to say a big thanka to the folks that take time out their day to translate interviews and songs for us non lingala speakers. Really means a lot to us. Im myself a french/english speaker but Im speaking of behalf of our east africans as well as west africans, you guys have no idea how much this helps us understand the people behind these songs that we love. Every interview you check out on youtube there’s alwaya that one person that’s like Can I get translation, I think from now on I’m gonna tell em to look on Congovibes because it might already have heen transcripted.

Thank you once again Ndekos you guys rock

Wow 34 times, can you imagine if Koffi, JB, Werra, Fally, Ferre, Heritier and Fabregas managed to do that or even half of it, the way they would torture our ears with their boasting and probably give themselves a new nickname  ;D ;D

He ended up by performing 34 times in 16 days! 14 days as support act of French singer Julien de Clerc. His first concert was broadcasted live on the Congolese television. After his shows at Olympia, he had to tour in Europe, but financial problems made him return quickly to Kinshasa. He received a triomphal reception and made a national tour throught the cities of DR Congo (Kisangani, Lubumbashi, Goma, Bukavu, etc.).

The sad part of the story is that Olympia refused him to give the video of his show at Olympia and the original audio-version, because of not respecting the contract. In 1979 they would release a Live a l’Olympia, but that disc was fake because it was recorded years later.

Two represenentative of Sony wanted to talk with Koffi to sign a contract with them. But Koffi refused to let them enter in his logde before performing at Zenith de Paris in 1998. I guess that he didn’t even that they were working for Sony.

So this guy pretty much left because Kakol was mad at him for doing an album that  the boss himself authorized him to do. Kakol is a horrible chef.


Watch this interview and you will understand that it was a 12. Werrason just used Kakol for that 12. Kakol himself had 3 songs on that album. Werrason and his staff changed his mind when they saw Miel de Son already talk about his album in interviews.
