fally's musicians for most of them think and act like session musicians,they'd rather cement their house and co situation than going much on tv,fally keeps telling them that himself  did not wait on koffi to  do everything for him to become famous and that was true
only the youngest ones like ambassy and fally's cousin boussole make a bit of effort
as for team wata and any other of the young groups,except ferre's which is slightly different due to having a couple of too charismatic members to be  totally showed,the level of promotion of artists never gets "there" as their leaders are too eager to prove themselves a lot

LOL well atleast with fally going to american music awards he can network. This is just silly. He doesnt even pretend to be there in support of a particular movie or anything lol
Excatly what kind of connections can an artist make at a film festival? I saw this in his snap and it just looked awkward. He should've just stayed in Angola with his band and finish the tour then get ready for the summe plans.

Old School Music / Nairobi Band in the 70's - Viva Makale
« Last post by MwanaMokili on Today at 10:46 »
Viva Makale was formed In 1979 when the Manager of the hottest joint in Nairobi Called Garden Square ( known as Kasuku Armstrong) wanted to fill a void left by the breakup of one of his resident bands known as Orchestre Bwambe Bwambe.

The Manager then asked Bwami Wa Lumona, who was the band leader of his Main resident Band, Les Mangelepa, to get together with another musician known as George Kalombo Mwanza and form a band to fill the gap.

Kalombo Mwanza was a member of a group known as Kombe Kombe and he recruited a number of the group members to form Viva Makale. Viva Makale was then contractd by Kasuku Armstrong to play alongside Les Mangelepa at Garden Square as resident bands.

The founding members of Viva Makale were : George Kalombo Mwanza (Vocals/Sax), Bwami Wa Lumona ( Lead), Leyla (Trumpet), Tshiamusoke ( Trumpet), Coco Zigo"Mike" (Vocals), Tambwe Mandola ( Vocals), and Jimmy Monimambo (Vocals),  Chery Matumona (Lead guitar),  Siama Matuzungidi (rhythm), Kabeya ( Rythm), Thomy Lomboto (Bass) and Lava 'Machine" ( Drums).

Their Introductory song was known as Safari :



This song was done in Lingala and Swahili and details how the group was formed.

Arguably their Biggest hit was Akamba :



and Bibi Mdogo ( Second Wife or co-wife) :



Later additions to the group was Moreno Batamba ( Vocals) who can be heard on background vocals and chorus in
another hit known as Shanti :



The Group had a style of theirs known as Mokon nyon nyon, which featured in their chorus and chants. Sample another of their hits known as Mama Nala :

And how much are his dancers and band getting, are they also driving at least a cheap Toyota?
The CEO will always make more then his/her employees that's how it is and always will be. And a lot of people would love to have a "cheap Toyota".

Heritier has promted his musicians in concerts and bringing them with him on interviews and giving them good amount of space in his album. Fally brings his guys to interviews on occasion and gave them an album and lets them do their own thing. Fally also put a video on video where they sang Skype and Power 001  it's just that for some reason a lot of Fally's musicians don't promote themselves.

Heritier band is just like Fally's...you will remain unknown while he builds his brand and take all the glory

This guy who sang the duet with Heritier in Affection and Yannick who can be heard in the song Luxembourg have left the group and are doing a project together. It's really suorisibg that they would leave before Olympia especially Yannick.

I just wonder if the other band members are being fairly compensated for their hard work. How can you be buying Bentley and Porsche when your employees can barely make ends meet, or get paid when you are feeling generous. No wonder Papy Kakol cant even afford a decent house furniture never mind a house. We cant be enslaved by the white men and the black men too.
