      we shall surely miss the talent and experience. If you can get your hands on Baby Ndombe sings Ndombe Opetum. Should make you feel better that we have a disciple.

    I just cant believe that my favorite rhumba musician has indeed left poor us!
    Among my best gone so far, first it was Franco, then Ntesa Dalienst, Mayaula Mayoni and now the Mokolo nakokufa..bakolela ngai champ is gone even before im able to meet him personally, however old! May our good Lord keep him and the rest of the rhumba angels in eternal peace. Shalo, shalom, shalom!

    Kende malamu mwana Ndombe. We will miss you and all you giggs like ” Bina lokola ngai!” Indeed like you prophesied mokolo okokufa oyebi ndenge tokolela yo! Get together with the Grand Master and give the angels a concert and don’t forget to sing ” Na decide nabala mama, nani okolinga ngai ye basi batonda Kinshasa nioso moto na mobali naye! What a legacy you have left us Pepe!
