Koffi Olomide, the Congolese Soukus singer, dancer, producer, and composer is in the country for a collaboration with local urban grooves legend Rockford “Roki” Josphat, courtesy of Prophet Passion Java.

Roki released two well-received singles recently with “Zviriko” hitting the chats and is seeking to build upon the regained hype.

Last week, Passion Java revealed that Roki had recorded “over a hundred songs”, a hint that an album could be on the way.

Koffi Olomide said he was glad to share his vast experience in the music scene with younger artists in the region.

“I am proud. I feel happy, young musicians everywhere in Africa need to meet and share my experience. They want to perform with me,” he said.

More recently, he won the Kora Award for “Best African Artist of The Decade”. This established one of his many aliases, the ‘Quadra Kora Man.

Koffi’s talent could be compared to the once king of African rhumba, Franco Luambo Makiadi, who also saw many artists pass through his expert hands during his days. Today, Olomde is one of Africa’s most popular musicians.
