KIZABA | Single Kituamina
Disques Nuits d'Afrique / Believe
After the success of his first three singles announcing the release of his first album in the fall of 2022, Kizaba presents his new afrobeat track Kituamina, featuring Marley C, recorded between Montreal and Congo.
As usual, the artist, author and composer, starts from a situation unfortunately very common in Africa and everywhere in the world to make a universal message.
Kituamina is the story of an alcoholic man who does not take care of his wife and children, and whose money is spent on alcohol and partying. But Kituamina, which means like this, like that in Lingala, is also a message of prevention to alcohol and its consequences. Indeed, everyone can change and can leave an addiction. If today is like this, tomorrow can be different. The clip was shot in Kinshasa in the underprivileged neighborhood of Matongué where the legendary Papa Wemba grew up.
Kizaba is an Afro-Electro Congolese singer based in Montreal, Canada. Singing in Lingala, French and Kikongo, he seeks to infuse contemporary afrobeats, electro, house and music with melodies and rhythms from Congolese traditions, creating a unique Afro-futuristic universe inspired by the stylistic tradition of “Sapologie”. The Kizaba live show presents personalized images produced in partnership with Congolese visual artists.
On stage, he is accompanied by musicians (a Congolese guitarist, a rock rhythm guitarist and a DJ). Through its fascinating Afro-electro Congolese music, KIZABA offers a unifying show that will move any crowd! Kizaba has performed his show in major world renowned festivals across Canada, USA, Europe and Africa.
Since July 2021, Kizaba has released 5 singles: Soso, Naturelle, Tu aimes danser, Kituamina and Ingratitude, and is preparing the release of his new album ‘’KIZAVIBE’’, whose international release is scheduled for November 18, 2022 as part of the closing night of M for Montreal.
