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.
