Dream Duo: Papa Wemba, Youlou Mabiala




This is a dream duet that should have occurred in Congolese music history. These two men would have set fire in Congolese Music. 

I am talking about Papa Wemba with Youlou Mabiala. I mean Vieux Bokul and Prince Youlou. These two men would have been the perfect duo to make songs together.

You can imagine Youlou's great tenor voice with Papa Wemba's unpredictable countertenor voice. That would make a great duet. Because Youlou's voice would able to mend well with a crazy voice of such an individual like Papa Wemba.

Another reason why I say this should have happened is they both sounded great with someone else. Sam Mangwana. If Papa Wemba sounded great with Sam Mangwana of all people, I imagine Youlou with Wemba. It would have been set with fire. 


I mean Youlou's voice would great with his high tenor while Papa Wemba would sound great with his countertenor especially when it goes low. Both of them being husky, I know that it would make a melodious sound. 

I know that if Papa Wemba and Youlou Mabiala had done a duet together, I know it would have been a classic song and fans would have jumped up and have a great time together. 

BTW I got two songs that they would have sounded great together.
Kamikaze (of Youlou Mabiala)
Papa Do (of Tabu Ley

Dream Trio: Abby Surya, Koffi Olomide, Youlou Mabiala






I just got the album of Maika Munan's album African Swinger. I have listened to the whole album and I actually loved it a lot. 

There is one particular song that I love dearly. That is Makaramba which had Abby Suriya, Tshala Muana (in the animations), Koffi Olomide and Carlyto Lassa.

But I feel the song would have been better if it had one person instead of Carlyto. I mean Carlyto is great but one person would have made it more perfect. 

I mean Youlou Mabiala which goes into this post. 

Abby Suriya, Koffi Olomide and Youlou Mabiala. 

These three people would have been perfect into the song Makaramba of Maika Munan. 

I know that Abby Suriya would have been perfect together with her vocals while you would have had a more fire into song with vocals of Koffi and Youlou. Youlou would have made Koffi work a little harder with his vocals. But the animations would have been with Tshala Muana and Carlyto of course. 

That is how I would have wanted the Makaramba to be arranged. 

Imagine a trio of vocals from Abby Suriya, Koffi Olomide and Youlou Mabiala with animations of Carlyto and Tshala Muana. 

Dream Trio: Josky, Nyboma, Youlou

I am so surprised that this trio had never happened but it probably never will because of these men's ages and health conditions but if they were so well, I think this trio would have been amazing. 

I am speaking of Josky, Nyboma and Youlou Mabiala. Josky Kiambukuta alongside Nyboma and Youlou. 

These men would be the TRIO that Congolese people would enjoy to hear. I mean after all, Nyboma could almost sing with anybody and in fact he has. Think of Pepe Kalle, Madilu, Soki Vangu, Koffi Olomide, Papa Wemba, Wuta Mayi and others. 

Now Nyboma did sing with Josky and Youlou Mabiala but never together. Nyboma sang on Josky's Oui Ca Va (2003) and Double Vie (2005) and Nyboma had sung with Youlou on Mose Sengo's classic 1995 Hello Hello and had sung with him during the Somo Somo era which also included Mose Sengo AGAIN. 

Now I think if there was a trio that should have been formed was this one. WHY? Because these men would have been perfect together in a trio ship. Remember the common theme? These men are diverse with their voices. So they can go high or low, and they would sound perfect together. That diversity is why I believe these men would have been a great trio. That would make this trio more credible than other trios together. 

It would have been the TRIO that was going to be classic. Josky, Nyboma and Youlou Mabiala. 

Dream Trio: Madilu, Pepe Kalle, Tabu Ley







We have a trio that may not have strong popularity but I do believe this trio would have been a blast for certain fans of these men together. 

I am speaking of Madilu, Pepe Kalle and Tabu Ley

I think this would have been another version of Empire Bakuba though it is a little different in this sense. It is where you have two Rochereau logos alongside Rochereau himself. 

Madilu and Pepe Kalle are products of Tabu Ley. I would call them the Rochereau logos because they come from the Afrisa school and their voices were clearly inspired by Tabu Ley. Madilu tended to be very husky with his voice while Pepe Kalle was very smooth with his baritone voice. Tabu Ley however was more tenor base than he was baritone. 

These voices would meld well together because Tabu Ley can use those high notes while Madilu could be counter-tenor while Pepe Kalle's incredible baritone. It would make a great melodious sound and I am sure fans would be so happy. 

I got three songs from them that would make sound great together

Madilu's Maria

Pepe Kalle's Ndako ya Zeke 

Tabu Ley's 1977 classic Ponce Pilate



Those songs I know would bring a melodious sound of Madilu, Pepe Kalle and Tabu Ley. These men would excel their voices together in those given songs if it had happened. 

Madilu, Pepe Kalle and Tabu Ley would have been a great trio in my opinion if it had been reality in some way.

Dream Quartet: Dindo Yogo, Likinga Redo, Madilu, Youlou Mabiala

This is a combination of OK Jazz and Zaiko Langa Langa together in a juicy melody that would have gave a great gap between the OK Jazz fans and Zaiko fans. Fortunately I got two singers of the Zaiko age and two singers of the OK Jazz age. 

Zaiko age are Dindo Yogo and Likinga Redo and the OK Jazz are Madilu System and Youlou Mabiala

These men would have been perfect together as a quartet. Their voices are different and they would turn into a great melody as a quartet. 

Here are the notes
Likinga Redo= High Tenor
Youlou Mabiala= Low Tenor
Dindo Yogo= Countertenor 
Madilu System= Baritone 

These men would be able to splash their beautiful voices. Since each voice is distinct, you would able to hear who is who and you will see the passion that would have been if these men had done a song or songs together. 

Finally, fans would be happy because these songs would have been done with substance and a reason why to love these men as a quartet. 

In fact I got two songs that would have fitted these men together. Just happen to come from Madilu System. 

Maria 1995

Pesa Position 1984


These two songs would have fitted these four men together. More magic and more force with their voices. Since they don't sound anything similar, you would have had a strong melody together. More people would have loved this quartet more any-other one. 

Dream Trio: Franco, Madilu, Youlou Mabiala




Hello everyone, I want to give some more special under Madilu and Youlou Mabiala special. 

This is a trio that should have occurred in Congolese music but didn't since there was different realities. 

This is about Franco alongside Madilu and Youlou Mabiala. 

These three men should have done music especially during Franco's final years since OK Jazz was not doing great like it once did. 

Franco did quite a few songs with Sam Mangwana. I wish Franco had thought to get Prince Youlou and Madilu to sing with him in a few songs before he was to pass away. 

It would have been a fun time. Because I know Franco would meld well with the strong tenor of Youlou and big husky baritone of Madilu. 

Also I know it would bring in strong chemistry and OK Jazz fans would have been happier if this trio had happened. 

I got three songs that should be remixed with voices of Franco, Madilu and Youlou 

Madilu's song Kobota Bisengo


Youlou Mabiala's song UCB 

Of course Franco's Tres Impoli


I think these three songs would have went well with their voices together. Also you see the different styles of OK Jazz school alongside Afrisa type of school which Franco both used during his music career.

Dream Trio: Franco, Madilu, Tabu Ley




Hello everyone. I am ready to give a trio that would have been milk and honey in my ears. 

I am speaking of Franco, Madilu System and Tabu Ley

These men should have done music together. When Franco and Tabu Ley did their musical collaboration, I wish Franco had added Madilu alongside them. I know Madilu and Tabu Ley were not good footing as Tabu Ley humiliated Madilu back when Madilu was a member of Afrisa. But I think Franco could have gotten them together and get them to shut up and make some beautiful melodies. 

More importantly Madilu is a Rochereau Logo type and he sings like Tabu Ley but in a lower tone as a husky man. Plus Tabu Ley loves singing high anyway. Franco is the singer who can sing in the middle and be relaxed. 

Their voices would have molded so well together and I got a pacific song that would have gotten in a melodious sound with Franco, Madilu and Tabu Ley

Franco's Tres Impoli 


I love Ntesa's voice in this song but it would have been better done if Tabu Ley had done the high notes. More spice in this classic song. 

I know Franco, Madilu and Tabu Ley would have been a fantastic trio if it had happened.
