It’s your unique opinion so none of us are here to change that. Here goes nothing... however, on a forum like this, not only are we fans with opinions, we are also educated with what actually went on at the time when x or y song/album was released.

With all due respect, stuff like this is can affect your credibility in other discussions on what what is considered by fans, known musical critics, and commercial success to be actual classics. Judging by some of your opinions, I'm willing to guess you were born in the mid-90's, which explains why you prefer later releases. 

After the Soyons Serieux thread, no one wants to take your bait and put in the time to really explain the reality of events in these types of threads. Most think you're trolling here.

Ndeko Archos, Mvulusi, myself and others  tried to explain to you that SS was a critical/commercial flop and BCBG members themselves were not happy with the album. But you did the equivalent of cross your hands & feet and said nope.

Without going into too much detail, I was in Kinshasa when Koffi was really struggling to record BEK. He thought just taking Gesac from Wazekwa when he was top falsetto would solve his atalakou woes, but he didn’t realize Gesac had no creativity whatsoever.

I was at GHK early 2008 for his Valentines day concert and the concert was just terrible. Koffi knew it and the audience knew it, but they were VIPs (friends). If it was Fikin with that team, he would’ve been booed right off stage.

He released a single générique "Bla Bla Bla" in ’07 showcasing Gesac & female atalakou Soglene Royal and it was a epic flop. So bad it made Koffi insecure with the other génériques he recorded. This was when King Kester shocked the scene and had the best générique and clip of 2007. “Kipe ya yo”, the générique was a Kinshasa hit despite some criticisms, and “Mayi ya Sika” was popular with locals.

In fact, BEK was not supposed to have génériques (just the 2 featurings), but his producer requested it, so he put together all the “good” parts of various recorded génériques and made the dumpster fire that is Bendele. "Cle Boa" was recorded very last minute, I’m sure Koffi himself doesn’t remember who the composer is…

Congolese Music / Re: THE GENERIQUE "POWER 001" HAS HELD UP VERY WELL

Yeah this the only generique with a very long rhythm part that is listenable. Hopefully this is the last generique of it's kind  because long rhythm part isn't the way to go. I remember listening to this first time and wondering who Tramortina (he did good on this animation) Yannick (he hasn't been since) Identite (really liked him when first listening) and Tangofort was because I taught Fally only had Kabuya,Doubai, Bousole and Kasangidi. Don't really like the video.

 jdog fally sent yannick here so he can go to university

I love every single second of it, I used to listen the song a lot once I was in a school trip in Florence, it was the perfect soundtrack throughout all the Route

Ah, thanks. One of my favorite albums ever. Released at the wrong time like all the other young solo acts (Montana, Alpatshino, Suzuki, etc.), unfortunately.

An absolute all star studio backing; an artist couldn't have asked for better
When do you think would've been the right time? And Suzuki's album is one of my favourites I need to find that album again it got taken off YouTube smh


This made me mad! I remember discovering Decompte Final the Sebene/Generique?!!! Only to discover the album was taken off, and I cant find it anywhere else online?

Yes, very unfortuate. That's why when some of the YTer's upload very rare albums, I download them (even though I'd prefer to give patronage to African artists).

You could buy the CD, but the asking price is 92 euros. Ridiculous

If listen to But Na Filet from Longue Histoire, you hear Kester shout him out. He was in the group with a bunch of other backups a while before getting promoted after Guy Moller and Masudi left

Who is he?

Was long time Atalakou for King Kester (RIP). Particularly when Victoria was dominating the animation and dance innovation game in the late 90's-early 200's (Kiwazenza, Tshaku Libondas, Cimetière na Kitambo, etcs).

What I mean by this, is that most groups from the ndombolo era were getting their animations and dances from Victoria Eleison

No, man that were Guy Moller and Eric Masudi. Mulo Scanto came after Long Histoire, when they left to form Dream Team Dream Band in 2001 with Zoe Bella, Sweet Elesse and Sampaio. He formed a duo with Arc en Ciel and they made that Tshafulu-animation and played at Zenith and Olympia and stayed then in Europe with other musicians.
