he performs kilos while still with quartier latin but both him and fally (who is in the footage as well as koffi olomide) leave the band not too long after this song is a hit. (other singer from quartier latin sings too but they're all performing 100 kilos; notice t he pictures of beer behind them. a lot of these shows are sponsored by beer companies)
clips from a live show in fikin last year (look out for the lil kid in the red shorts name chikito. lil dude is nice. at one point he 'battles' one of the singers in ferre's band and basically sons him (its staged lol) notice the 'primus' signs behind them. a beer company lol in a lot of ways beer companies out there are almost one with the music industry) ferre's shows are more lively in comparison to fally and it follows the 'traditional' format closer. ferre is more of a band leader than fally is imo. fally is more a solo artist.
ferre gola is cosigned by simarro litumba, one of franco & tp ok jazz's greatest writers and composers. the song in this clip is written by him for madilu system. madilu was another alum from the ok jazz school of rumba. a great vocalist he passed away in 2007. this concert ferre had was in tribute to him. ferre gola is vocally compared to madilu often so it was only right.
