Niasony Okomo’s ‘triumphal march’ to stardom
Congo-Brazzaville’s Afro-plastic star Niasony Okomo continues her triumphal march to stardom by putting in place, among others, pieces of missing puzzles to complete her musical journey. […]
‘I’m planning to do a featuring with Papy Tex. He will write three songs for me, and the album will be launched under the stable of Empire Bakuba,” Okomo told Moon of the South on Sunday.
Tex, real name Matolu Dode, is one of the musicians who worked with the late Pepe Kallé in the Congolese Empire Bakuba band. But the band seems to have floundered since the death of Kallé. However, recent reports from the capital Kinshasa suggest that Tex is about to revive it. Okomo could be among the stars that will attempt to bring the band back to life.
Furthermore, bearing in mind that she has some qualities of the DR Congo star Abeti Masikini in her, Okomo has finally decided to interpret a few songs of the late singer, without however naming which ones. […]
The journey to full stardom looks indeed rosy for Okomo, and it seems as nobody or nothing will stand on her way to fulfill her dreams.
