D.R. of Congo: Rest in Peace, Madilu “Multi Système”

Rest in peace the Grand Pharaoh, Madilu: “He was Bialu Madilu, also known as Multi Système, Grand Pharaoh, Grand Ninja, Sa Majesté and Grande Baleine. Born in Matadi, in the province of Bas Congo, he sang with Simaro and Tabu Ley Rochereau before joining TPOK Jazz. Sadly, he died on Saturday, and all of Kinshasa is in mourning. Radio stations have been playing his music almost non-stop for three days now.”
