THE CONGO ... in his heart
'' I discovered Congo for the first time, in 2014, with music. I was welcomed like a king, at home. Whenever I go, I'm at home. Basically, I'm a fan of rap, I could have steered my career towards this universe, but I went directly to this African music by pride of my country, its history, its culture. Today, Congo is musically very present in France, and has a huge aura in Africa. Congo is my wealth, my pride. "
