Tribute to Madilu System

Africa has lost one great musician, the Congolese Bialu Madilu System, aka Ramsès II or also the Grand Ninja, who died Saturday in Kinshasa . (Link in French!)

Madilu was one of the musicians who worked with the late Franco Luambo Makiadi of TP OK Jazz. Madilu took over upon the death of Franco and has inspired many musicians with his uplifting rythms, in the style of the grand maestro Franco rumba music.

Here he plays one of his songs.

African music has lost a hero. R.I.P.

I'm shocked to receive the news of the demise of Madilu System. Indeed Africa has lost a great artist, a great singer, a great musician. Your music will live on. You entertained us in our living rooms, in our cars while driving. We will miss you Madilu System. Rest In Peace.

I wonder why the mail media outlets are silent about the death of this legendary man.

I was looking for the news coverage but couldn't find any, except for snipets. The BBC had only a quick mentioned in the Network Africa programme and never repeated it again. Shame!

Madilu is a lovely musician. We need rumber not just shouting and crying like the other musician do. They should learn from Fronco, Madilu, but not from Awilo and others.
