He needs to clear his name

Just by looking at that photo he feels he doesn’t and will probably have diplomatic immunity just as long as he goes where he has powerful friends

Congolese Music / Is Koffi looking for protection ?

Please assist with the lyrics  of ecoliere. i really like the melody and i get the general message but my lingala is still poor, worse off is my french. Those who haven't listened to the song should just give it a chance.... nice rhumba.

Was Michael Tshendu ever meant to last long with the group? Although he was in the clips, he never had any vocals to any songs from Intervention Rapide Force but Orphelin.

He was with Masion Mere during their European tour, but didn't record a single vocal for Solola Bien. I always thought he was a ngulu disguised as a member of a group, which Papa Wemba was known to do with his band.

Why wasn't Christian Mabanga more patient? He could have easily replaced Didier Masela after Solola Bien, but everything worked out since Mimiche was a great bassist

Hahaha Michael Tshendu wasn't a ngulu lol. You will never ever see ngulu on stage as musicians. If they just arrive in Paris, London or Brussels they start their own business, sometimes they also attend the big event as spectator. Michael Tshendu was a singer for R&B, Zouk, Soul songs in concerts before that the singers of Maison Mere arrives on stage. In the 80s Zaiko also used to have a singer for those rols (I forgot his name).

you can see him sing from 4:03 min

In Wenge Musica 4x4, Alain Makaba & Patient Kusangila were doing that role.

When Wenge Maison Mere was busy with recording Solola Bien, they said that Michael Tshendu would record his own solo album. Zacharie Bababaswe made it clear during the concert of Palais des Sports. But I don't if that album ever got released.

Christian Mwepu was used by Werrason to do nasty things to Didier Masela and ignoring him. Not wanting to give him the bass guitar if he came of stage, etc. and Werrason promising that he would give him two songs on Solola Bien as reward. Because they knew that Masela would leave Maison Mere soon. Then when they came in London they weren't rehearsing his songs and Christian felt betrayed. After that Didier Masela decided to stay in London (kind of left Maison Mere) and they went to Canada. Masela already called his friends there and those people went to beat him. After that they toured the USA and other cities of Canada, but they still weren't rehearsing his songs and Christian himself became also sick. So he decided then to stay in Canada.

I never knew Masela had a dark side like that sending people to beat someone else I thought he was a laidback person.
I don't know to be honest the last I saw him was when he was performing with Zaiko back in 1987 in Brussels.
Something must be wrong with your ears mate the sound for both songs were fantastic, I agree with Mvulusi I thought Salopette would turn into a sebene also I was kinda bummed when it didn't.
Who's that bassplayer when Michael Tshendu sung Celine Dion's song ? Was that Fiston-bass who became the main bassplayer until Mimiche arrival and joined Wenge Tonya Tonya ?
