That dance style on 0:15 was known as bumping - Very popular the world over - Variations were Bumping Kungfu and Watergate....

This clip has taken me back.

Wuta Mayi
Michel Boyibanda
Jolie Detta
Baniel
Nana
Youlou Mabiala
Lokombe Ntal
Carlyto Lassa
Bola Bolithe (under Simaro and Ok Jazz)
Diatho Lukoki

Not sure I’d count any of those people as they weren’t OK Jazz members at the time of Franco’s death.

All of the above except Bola Bolithe were Bona fide TPOK Jazz members.

Jollie Detta for example sang with FRanco on the Hit "Layille"
Wuta Mayi, Michelle Boyibanda were vocalists in a number of TPOK Jazz hits, especially in the 70's
Nana Akumu joined OK Jazz in the 70s as well
Of Youlou Mabiala  He was refeered as Franco's Prince

Not sure which one was not an OK member ( Other than Bola ) Really...

I think Baby Ndombe is actually the son of Pepe Ndombe Opetum?

BCBG vs Quartier Latin 2001 ;D

On another note, I see we’ve decided COVID-19 is over

That is mankind for you brother.
Familiarity breeds contempt. People have learnt to live wiith it, and now with a vaccine, the fear of COVID is receding.

Having said that, we must avoid being statistics and take precautions.

I am still behaving like it is a pandemic, but most people are simply tired.

This has hit me so hard because I was a big fan of this singer. His voice was something special.

MwanaMokili, I must correct you. That song Distingue, Nyboma DOES NOT sing at all. In fact, Nyboma had his own band already called Les Kamale when that song came out.

Nzaya Nzayadio sounded very similar to Pepe Kalle. Listen to Mbondo and Matoba, you will know what I mean.

Rest in Peace Nzaya Nzayadio.

Thanks for the correction.

The tenor singer here sure sounded like Nyboma to me.

I am not sure of the time lines of the distingue song, so I will take your note.

Lipua Lipua sure was a hit machine and there were big following in East Africa with camps of Lipua Lipua, camps of Kiam , camps of Bella Bella and Later, Les Kamale.

We would meet as youth and recite the songs (With little or no undertsanding of the words!) and compare which sebene was more 'fire', which guitarist was better and admire the  horns of Kiamungwana and Mbuta Benazoo ...

Them days are surely gone...

Wow, he was such a calm soul. RIP

You are right Brother, Until he got on stage.

Here he is in his youth with Lipua Lipua :


The Solo singer was Canta Nyboma ( Nyboma Mwandido) and I think Nzaya was the second voice
The Sax was Mbuta Benazoo
The rythm was Vata Mombasa
and backing Vocals of Lusuamo Aspro
And of course you had Kilola...

Music like this Is rare nowadays, which makes it all the sadder for the loss...

May he RIP. My fav album by him is the collaboration Choc Choc 85

This year can not end soon enough!!

Nzaya Nzayadio was a bastion of Orchestre Lipua Lipua in the 70's

Together with Nyboma they set East Africa alight with hit after hit and made the music llfe very vibrant.

RIP Legend Nzaya.

WE will miss you music.

This is indeed tough news,  but Chin up Bro.

The quarantine is to ensure you do not pass it to your loved ones, so it is necessary.
I do not know what your symptoms are, but if you are able to breath freely, there is hope still.
I have seen some members advising Garlic and Ginger, this helps.
From our experinece hereabouts most people do recover based on several actions:
1.  Take lots of Hot Fluids ( Ginger/Lemon/Honey Mix to keep your throat warm and irrigated.
2. Take lots of Vitamins ( Fruits rich in Vitamin C) and other vitamins as well\
3. Exercise your body by sit ups/press ups and keep your body woking ( Do Not sit in a corner the whole day)
4. Finally, the throat is kept clear and clean by the hot drinks, but you need to clear your nasal/sinus/airway of the virus load. This is achieved by steaming. Take hot water in a basin, ( around 70 Deg Celsius) and cover your head in a towel and breath in the steam  through your nose. This will moisten the airway and raise its temperature ( Corona virus does not survive in high temp) and weaken whatever virus are in the airway, giving your body a chance to fight. Try to steam about three times a day or as much as five times.

All the best brother and keep your spirits high, you can beat this.
