Advice for the young European-Congolese artist do not sign for Fally, not because he is Fally but because when you are a popular singer you don't have the time to stay behind everybody, Shesko should.go independent or go to knock the door of BKYE Kusik, anyway ye General Benkhoff, Denatora, and the others in Jessy Matador's selesao flopped hard compared to Keblack & NASA, but why that? They were waaaay before in the game and Jessy Matador did everything to spotlight them, maybe because Jesse is more of a dancer so they didn't have the right training? Who knows, any French guy who can help us?

That's it, Jessy Matador is more of a dancer and got a huge hit with "Shifted Gwada" that he released in 2008 so that despite being a singer he had a big popularity and so those who were close to him could benefit. Denatora is the only one who still has success thanks to his dance videos that he posts on Instagram and some singles that have several million views on Youtube. While the others did not seek to continue in this way and so were quickly forgotten

Yes he was a dancer. But later on he became a popular singer in France, the difference was that the white public was paying attention to his music. But to not lose his original fans who made him the guy he was, he was releasing some tracks on his skyrock-page (which was then very popular, facebook didn't exist) and making video's with the then new members of Selesao (2 of the 4 Original members left and went to form Les Jumo).

In the beginning he was a coupe-decale artist and was releasing then mixtapes and singles with some being huge hits on the then new Trace TV (Zot Ok, Attrapez Botcho & Decale Gwada, they were all remixed on his first album). He started then to do the first part of Magic System and other artists at concerts. His succes made the French-music label Wagram Music pay attention to him with him signing with them. He changed then his music-direction to have a bigger audience (Electro, Kuduro, Dancehall & other European musicstyle). He didn't really like it, but it made him get platina singles and his 2 first albums also being platina. He toured in France with his audience being white and performed at Bataclan. His succes made him be selected at the Eurovision Songfestival of 2010, representing France (only East-European countries are winning it lol). Then they also selected him for "La Nuit Africain" at Stade de France representing DR Congo along with Fally Ipupa and Werrason in 2011. He wanted to copy Papa Wemba by having to groups La Selesao and Air Force One, like Papa Wemba did with Nouvelle Ecriture and Viva La Musica. La Selesao was then more for his "roots" and Air Force One for his white audience. But later on he decided to dump La Selesao and focus only on Air Force One with those of La Seleao forming Shakalewa to prove him a point. From 2011 he wanted to have a base at Kinshasa and have a Congolese audience there. He went there to form a third group, but on the end the stopped with that, because he wasn't conviced. The only guy who convinced him was the famous Mapipo Yeyo. He made a documentary about it. He wanted then to record two albums for his white audience (Authentik) and another for his original public (Vemino Vedetao), but his label didn't want that album for his roots, which created a conflict. He started then to record that album which was then more a mix of different style, then his original vision for that album. He invited Awilo Longomba, his friend Fabregas Metis Noire, his group Air Force One, Hiro and Kila Predada  and made even a 100% congolese generique with atalaku's and Leny Bidens as guitarist. His label saboted the promotion of that album (4 years later they decided to delete everything from the digital platforms. You can't find that album anymore) delete.After that he released Authentik, but it didn't had the same impact like his 2 first albums. In 2014 he released a best-off album, which was the last album of his contract with Wagram Music. After that he dissapeard and became a reality-show actor, formed also his own musiclabel and started to manage artists with La Synesia being the main act. Now he's more active behind the scenes.




I also forgot back in 2011 he had a beef with DJ Arafat for calling Coupe-Decale a fake rhythm, during an interview with Congolese journliast Noella Madinga in Kinsasa. Not knowing that people of other countries follow that interview.

Advice for the young European-Congolese artist do not sign for Fally, not because he is Fally but because when you are a popular singer you don't have the time to stay behind everybody, Shesko should.go independent or go to knock the door of BKYE Kusik, anyway ye General Benkhoff, Denatora, and the others in Jessy Matador's selesao flopped hard compared to Keblack & NASA, but why that?

It's all Guccima's fault his succes went above his head and he was a little bit fed to do that atalaku-role and wanted also to sing, but then solo. So he decided to leave a start his solo-career, which meant the end of Shakalewa. Denatora was furious and felt betrayed and made also a video about. But since Guccima started his solo-career he doesn't have that succes anymore with his video's not even getting 200.000 views and them being invited for smal parties. He released Zigida as first single. People started to pay attention to it, but it got deleted after a conflict with a boy who makes gospel-music (Stellone or something like that) about copyrights. Then Mukusa and more, but it all flopped. Its all karma. I think that its better for them to reunite. I found it very sad they disbanded. They started slowly to take the market over. They performed at Le Divan du Monde and La Cigale, who are small musichalls but with a big name, they went to Kinshasa and Canada. They were close to sign with Bomaye-Music and other big labels. If that happened they would take the French-music industry over like Hiro, Naza & Keblack. Hiro was the image of Bana C4, who were Shakalewa's concurrents, but look were he is now. He signed with Bomaye-music, released his solo album, which became gold in France with all girls liking him and is now signing with a bigger music-label. Same thing with Anges d'Afrik who decided to disband before the real things wanted to start.
