"Currently the Democratic Republic of Congo's music is domoninated by the "ndombolo" dance and well represented by the newest congolese superstar:Fally Ipupa is a strong performer from the Democratic Republic of Congo who worked with the legendary Koffi Olomide in his group, Quatier Latin, before branching out on his own. His performances are energetic, his delivery unsurpassable. Female fans love to watch as he whips his songs to new heights in time to his swiveling hips (part of the reason he made the top ten sexiest men list). The mix of rhumba, reggae, soul and ndombolo have proven to be his magical elixir. He has performed to sold out audiences in Paris and New York and continues to gain recognition internationally for his music.
His awards include the Césaire de la Musique award for best male artist of the year (October 2007); he received a gold disc for his album, Droit Chemin, and has been nominated for best music clip, and best artist in the Black Music Awards to be held in Coutonou, Benin on January 12, 2008. Droit Chemin, produced by Maïka Munan (who has worked with famous Congolese musicians such as Tabu Ley Rochereau, M’Bilia Bel, Papa Wemba, Afia Mala), has been received with accolades and is extremely popular with his fans. The video is well done and features several ndombolo moves. One wonders how long it will be before his moves show up on a hiphop video as the next big move"...

"My people! The Almighty's people..my African people. Always makes me smile"
"I like how Fally allowed the legendary congolese guitar do the singing. Anyone else noticed no mabanga? its good like this. Mabanga soki eleki ebebisaka. Ba combatant pardon. Botika music ezonga."
"At the end of the music ,did i hear something like " Ali bumaye" ?"
"yeah u just hear that. that's in his song called "Bruce"..there is a part in the beginning where he says " It's not a competition which one of us has to win but it is love between sweetheart wife and husband, not a fight between Bruce lee and chuke Norris. Neither a clash between Muhammad Ali and Foreman where u heard the crowd chant 'Ali Bomaye, Ali Bomaye!'"
"In this song, it's not Ali boma ye, but Fally boma ye! The meaning is Fally kill him! When Ali fought with Foreman in Kinshasa, people used to sing Ali boma ye (in lingala). They want Ali to beat Foreman (not to kill him, :-) )"
"What's the name of the song Fally was singing at 4:38 in Abidjan?"
