Madilu System. Simple. Only Madilu would have been better musically for Papy Tex than Pepe Kalle.
Here is one song that Madilu and Papy Tex sing together
Madilu and Papy Tex would have been a better duo in my view. Listen to this song that I posted.
At first I can't lie, I was not too happy. I said why would Papy Tex want to sing with a guy like Madilu? But considering how I insist that Pepe Kalle was much better with Nyboma, then where does that leave Papy Tex? Well there is someone for him that would have given him a better harmony moment. That is only Madilu System.
Madilu and Papy Tex have something that Papy Tex never had with Pepe Kalle? That is similarity. Think of this. Nyboma had a crystal tenor voice while Pepe Kalle had a husky baritone. Pepe Kalle's voice was very smooth while Madilu's voice was not smooth but very raspy.
Madilu and Papy Tex are singers with aggressive overtones. Fortunately they did not sing in the same style. Madilu is in the baritone range while Papy Tex is in the countertenor or tenor range. This is the perfect scenario.
Also finally look at Madilu's own band. There is a singer that sounds very similar to Papy Tex except he is much deeper with his tenor. He has no Nyboma impersonator. That is a give away into even who Madilu preferred. It was kind like Papy Tex that Madilu himself loved more. How ironic?
Indeed I believe that Madilu and Papy Tex would have been better together. They would have combined beautifully together. Put Madilu's Fragile Baritone and Papy Tex's sensitive fragile Tenor together, you have something magical. Plus Jamais proved that big time.
In fact I have some Papy Tex songs and Madilu songs that would have been perfect for their voices together
Adieu Leya (Papy Tex)
Monique (Papy Tex)
Sango ya Mawa (Papy Tex)
These songs would have brought some delicious harmony to my ears and I am sure Madilu's fans would have been happy.
Just imagine if Papy Tex and Madilu had sung together more, some great memories would have been around for both sides.
