The Chuck Norris of congolese pop is back: Koffi Olomide also known as Rambo used to be one of Africa’s biggest pop stars. He sold out shows at stadiums in France and some of his albums sold better than french hiphop pioneer MC Solar or grunch legend Nirwana. He has more than 30 albums under his belt and hits like ‘Ultimatum’ were dominating the charts in Congo in the early 90s. Whenever he gets invited to perform in Africa, he takes a private jet and only steps out with his entourage and dancers when a stretch limo is waiting for him.
