Yes, still to this day I have to find someone who matched his energy and charisma, neither Bill, Celeo or Genta  CA  come close I have listened to Kalayi Boeing Remix and man that energy that enthusiasm the joy of just making music is something you can't teach

True... I’ve never found Bill to be the best. Ekokota is probably the best live performer as an atalaku, him and tutu complimented each other well.

I agree, he was the best, and noone like him since then. But there were many good ones that is true.

Ekokota is a great animator but he is not number one.

Number one for me is Djouna Mumbafu '
He knew how to make great animations
Look at these examples

Listen to these animations, you can hear greatness from Djouna Mumbafu. BTW Bill Clinton was influenced by Djouna Mumbafu.

Are you drunk? So Lidusu, Sima Ekoli, Libele ta 22h, Mayi, Misenge are better then all of Ekokota cries?

Francopepekalle is right, but he choose the wrong songs as examples. Btw in Congo people rate Djuna Mumbafu higher than Ekokota. He was the first atalaku who used to dance and jump a lot and scream and throwing shots towards rivals (the shots were mostly directed to Wenge 4x4).

I completely agree. Just like Kila and Extra Musica. Without them these bands would have not been the same. And I think one cause of the hardships of Congolese music today is that such men are missing from the scene, such charismatic atalakus.

the showdown with nono at wenge's concert says it all,when ekokota shouted

honestly i have never heard a more powerful atalaku voice he was a beast
djouna was a phenomenon too but voicewise  ekokota was something else,just look at the huge difference with bivens who tried to replicate him
