Change of Plans

I am sorry to do this. I did announce about this month being the time of Josky and Celine Dion. But since I have things going on, I am going to have to postpone those posts. 

Don't worry fans, you will get them soon and I will make my posts about them in the near future. I don't know when but you will get them. 

Be patient, I will be back. 

Nakozonga awa kopesa maloba na ngai pona bino nyonso. 
Parce que je vous veux de voir mes paroles de ces musiciens. 
Wakati narudi, mutaona maneno yangu na kwanini nasema nini nasema. 

Thank you
Merci 
Melesi 
Asante

Dream Trio: Josky Kiambukuta, Mbilia Bel, Tshala Muana







I have notice that Josky Kiambukuta hardly sang with women in his great musical career. Now if you wanted Josky to sing with two female singers, I actually think I found two people that fit in the music of Josky Kiambukuta. 

I think of Mbilia Bel and Tshala Muana. Two divas with big egos who could back it up with their voices. 

With Josky's ability to sing any note, I think these two women would be able to be good backup singers for Josky's need for his lead commandments. 

I got a song where I believe that this trio would have some big success if it was them together. 


The song by Mayaula Mayoni which he sings with Tshala Muana would actually be the song that I think it would have been great also if we had a Mbilia Bel, Tshala Muana and Josky Kiambukuta together. Plus you would get Mayoni plays his rhythm player though he had a very powerful voice. Josky can sing with low notes with Mbilia Bel with high notes since she would prefer that and Tshala Muana just do the middle note. If this scenario, I know many women would jumping up and down. 

That song inspired the special of Josky, Mbilia Bel and Tshala Muana. 

Dream Trio: Josky Kiambukuta, Nyboma, Soki Vangu







I have to do this. For many reasons. I am speaking about my great trioship. Imagine if we had these three men. 
1) Josky Kiambukuta
2) Nyboma 
3) Soki Vangu 

I have my reasons why they should have sang with together. 
1) Josky Kiambukuta has such a diversity as a singer 
2) Nyboma can sing with anyone 
3) Soki Vangu seemed to be able to tolerate everyone's sound 
4) Josky has a appreciation of musical diversity in Congolese Music 
5) Incredible melody of Nyboma and Soki Vangu singing together while Josky does his strong singing. 

I think these words explain my view of my imagination of these three singers together. I believe that they would be able to spark the fans with their voices melding together. 

The trio special: Josky, Nyboma and Soki Vangu

Soki Vangu is truly underrated: Soki Dianzenza is truly overrated

Lately I have been doing some deep listening to Bella Bella songs including the ones that I posted in YouTube especially over two songs that did not have the more "popular" Soki in the song.

I am speaking about Soki Dianzenza and older brother Soki Vangu as you can in this picture here. The younger beard man was Emilie Soki and the older man on the right was Maxime Soki. 

Here is what I am going to say. I am going to say this and I know Bella Bella fans will mad at me. I understand why? 

Soki Dianzenza is totally overrated and Soki Vangu is so underrated. I have been thinking this way and now, I am very convinced that it is the case. 

Think of this way, the main reason why people even care to listen to Bella Bella is primarily because of Emilie Soki. Maxime Soki is not exactly the "most exciting" singer. That kills him. Because Emilie was the "exciting" one. He had more passion in his voice (though Maxime had great passion too). Emilie was the one who was like Madilu and Mayaula Mayoni, so unpredictable with his voice. When he sang with Nyboma and Soki Vangu, his voice was much lower and more manly. But during his return from his should have never existed band Bella Mambo, his voice seemed to be more hyper and much more fascinating. 

That is probably why people overvalue Soki Dianzenza more than they should. Also since he was a wild character with a great voice like he did, so many people are fascinated by that as well. That might be another reason why Soki Dianzenza is overvalued. And finally, because Soki Dianzenza had more energy as a singer. 

But people fail to recognize is that Soki Vangu is pretty important for the success of Bella Bella. It was Soki Vangu that kept the band going when Soki Dianzenza decided to venture his own thing. TWICE, I might add. 

Maxime Soki continued Bella Bella in the 1980s when his brother Emilie bailed on him again when his issues finally got him captured. So sad because the Sokis could have continued but Emilie's issues became too overbearing clearly. But of course people bail on Maxime since he no longer had his brother in his wing. 

Maxime Soki has never gotten his due because people really think mostly of Emilie Soki and they like and they will continue to try to forget about Maxime Soki as they would say he was "cocktail" of Emilie Soki that Emilie was the only special one. 

That is how I guess that people see Bella Bella group. Majority consider Emilie Soki as the special one and Maxime Soki as the secondary and almost non valuable one.
