Mayaula Mayoni & Mpongo Love

Hello friends. I am back with something special. It has been weeks. So many problems (as usual) with school things and usual youth crap that I deal with. 

Now I look at two people I wish would have made more music together. I am speaking of Mayaula Mayoni and Mpongo Love. 

These two made one incredible song that I cannot get enough of. That song is Ndaya. It is a song that send Mpongo Love to become one of the earlier pioneers of Congolese Music Diva Scene. In fact there were two singers that came before. They were Abeti Masikini and Mpongo Love. In fact thanks to Abeti Masikini, you got Abby Sourya, Mbilia Bel and even Tshala Muana. 

This song also helped make Mayaula Mayoni officially as a musician and no longer quite the soccer player that he once was back in the older days. He would later on make some incredible songs such as Mizele, Nabali misere, Bikini, Ousmane Bakyoko.

It is the band of my first idol Franco. The band Le TPOK Jazz. It symbolizes for Le Tout Puissant OK Jazz. It was originally called L'OK Jazz which based a bar owned by a person name Oscar Kashala or Oscar Kalala. Formed in 1953, it would be a band until 1994. Another version of OK Jazz came with Youlou Mabiala. 

In Facebook and general, I have heard and even been asked about possibilities of not only revival of OK Jazz in Kinshasa but even in Kenya or even the western areas. 

My personal outlook is this. They are possible areas to look for OK Jazz revival if it is to ever be international. 

Here are possible areas
