There is not much in the way of good information out there and almost everything I read seems to have contradictory detail but multiple media outlets are reporting that Remmy Ongala, born in 1947 has passed away.

    @ All
    Our sister Lydia has requested me to post this on her behalf.

    It’s been a long time but I now have a break and I have been enjoying a bountiful harvest of great music as I try to catch up with downloading…. thanks guys.
    I may be joining the Soukous party late but here are some tracks I really enjoy from the Rumba Soukous album …. hope you all have a great week ahead.

    Spam Dog has been working over time and giving me a hard time so I hope this posts successfully.

    Since I am one of the few who has managed to escape from the custody of the Spam dog, I have an obligation to keep the fire of the blog burning. In addition to Lydia’s Soukous bash above, here is a 1994 collection of memorable tracks by Soukous Stars under the title “The Best of African Music”.

    @ All:
    It seems to work now. Supprisingly, it stored all our attempts to post and has now gone wild releasing all that was posted. So many duplicate posts.
    @ Tina:
    Where are you? You have been cut for so long. Try it now.

  16. Egoing says:

    @All
    When the postings are stored and then displayed later (repeatedly), something more needs to be done.

    @ Saminator
    Feel no offence. I will try all possible.

    @Daudi
    Affaire Semeki has been prescribed as the relief for my anxiety. SOS

    @Fred
    Good for you old boy. Your postings as well sneaked through.

    Egoing

    I went in and tried to restore as many posts as I could but there were hundreds and I could not go through them all effectively.

    I thought it might be better to have some duplicates than to miss even one.

    I am still working on figuring out what the problem is.

    @ Egoing
    I am yet to attain the status of a magician otherwise I would most definitely share those powers with the Clan members especially at such moments when our camaraderie is threatened by the Spam Dog. I have no doubt that the Steve is doing his best to get things back to normal.

    @ Fred
    It seems that your files were deleted too soon. When things normalize, could you please post the songs again?

    @All
    Have a fruitful week
