I was a big Baloji fan long before we actually met, became friends and started working together…

I remember going to Starflam gigs and just marvel (that’s an Oprah word especially for you, B) at his flow, the way he moved on stage and of course his impeccable sense of style.

Cue 7 years later and now we have dinner parties, heated discussions, the occasional drunk night (once a year) and co-produced photoshoots.

Here’s his brand new video for Indépendance Cha-Cha.

Congratulations B! You done did it again!

Shot in the “Bon marché” (Barumbu) neighbourhood, at the heart of Kinshasa, featuring the late Wendo Kolosoy’s backing band, “Indépendance cha-cha – Le jour d’après” is a new take on the African independence anthem wrote in 1960 by Joseph “grand kallé” Kabasele and Nicolas ” dr. nico” Kassanda.

“The wide range of backgrounds, the various ethnicities and traditions:
this has and will never stand in the way of sharing a common set of ambitions.”  Baloji
