I wanted to make this column/index book about what the various Congolese artists have brought into our music and I wanted to title what have they brought but I think the Brand of is a way better title with that said I will cover artists that I have followed closely or that I have known about in my lifetime so unfortunately no Franco, Tabu Let etc. but they are legends anyway, so I will start with
Fally
Ferré
Werra
Koffi
JB Mpiana
Wazekwa
Fabregas
Deplick
Héritier etc.
I will try to limit myself with successful leaders and if the index book get success I will focus even on the one with less success.

Good, now let's move on to the first story of this topic
Fally a nickname of Faustin Ipupa N'simba was born in December 14th 1977 and more then focusing on his life and the many rumours surrounding him (the most famous one being the one about him killing both his parents for fame) I want to focus on his brand and what he have brought into Congolese music in a Ndombolo scene dominated by the recent Success of A La Queue Leu Leu and the buzz surrounding the release of Témoignage to see if Werra could counter back Bill, Ferré, JDT and the many other artists who have left Wenge to form Les Marquis De Maison Mère by replacing them with artists who could have matched that level of stardom and by Koffi whom after releasing Effrakata, Affaire d'État and Monde Arabe couldn't expect that Fally his own pire petit could do something like preparing his solo album under his eyes. In this time dominated by Ndombolo and fast paced songs Fally came and shocked everybody by not only leaving Quartier Latin but also announcing his new and first album Droit Chemin with many collaborations from ex Quartier Latin members like Champion Djikapela, Apocalypse, and Modogo Abarambwa.
It was a risk and going solo not to form a group like Les Marquis did but going solo like Fally did was unheard of at the time and complice the fact that Koffi took Ferré to try to counter Werra and to have the best singers of Congo at the time in his group Fally decided to leave and release this album.

The success was weirdly immediate everybody were dancing songs like Prince Dr Southfork, Associé and especially Liputa which is now considered a classic among Rhumba lovers, for the first time since the Ndombolo fast paced era an album was more successful for the Rhumbas more then the Générique, but for Fally I think his brand was not that but the fact that he brought professionalism into the Congolese industry, it wasn't the classical Congolese artist who had a friend as an administrative and a weak marketing behind the disc no, Fally calculated every move and I think his brand was the one to be professional and never leave anything to the case he signed to Monsoh which at the time was one of the best producer in Africa and managed to make a successful album not only for Congo or Africa but even in Europe diasporaand many albums later now even managed to work with very famous french artists like Maître Gina, Aya Nakamura, Naza & KeBlack showing every artist in Congo that being professional is the way to go.

One thing I have to hand to Fally Ipupa is that he knew how to market to International audiences when he got flack and he was persistent to this market and now it is working in his favor. Especially these last two years, more international artists have called and wanted to collaborate with Fally Ipupa. That is why Fally is on top right now.
