Forget the Grammy Awards and western accolades. No big African star has ever been truly acknowledged globally. Africa should honour Franco, TP OK Jazz, Tabu Ley et al. We also have an obligation to disseminate their works across the continent as part of an African Renaissance and demonstration of Africa’s pioneering cultural influences 👊🏾🇿🇼🇿🇼🇨🇩🇨🇩🇨🇩

There should be a museum or conservatory in Kinshasha to preserve Luambo Makiadi's music. He makes Africa proud.
 Je suis de la Cote D'Ivoire, la musique de Franco non seulement est unique, mais elle tres serieuse. C'est un tresor pour toutte l'Afrique.

That solo guitar in the last two minutes sounds like Franco is beating somebody with slippers. He just slammed it and walked away like a Boss!!

Discovering old "new" music is one of the best things about youtube. I had lots of Franco music, but evidently I didn't have everything. The vein of Franco TP OK Jazz music gold runs deep. It seems there's always more - just keep looking with open ears.
