Nicknamed the father of Congolese rumba, Papa Wemba, the heir to Elvis, Fela and Tabu Ley, became a legend despite himself. This vibrant documentary traces the history of an iconic, trailblazing and intergenerational artist.

I just came back from seeing this movie, twice! Yes, it is that good. The highlight in this film was definitely Fally Ipupa and Orphée Shungu. Fally Ipupa gave such a convincing and emotional performance in a character who is so sensitive. Orphée Shungu was really good at bringing to life such a character. I was really amazed at how good he was playing

Very very very entertaining and thrilling film! Fally Ipupa was by far my favorite character in this movie! She was great in this movie, so slick and cool!! And of course Orphée Shungu is great in here, such a great hero, as he is in most movies.
