Sometimes, the wrong plane will take you to the right destination. Thus, in 1977, Badi's family was about to leave the Congo for Russia. But a change of flight would decide otherwise, forever changing the route of a lifetime. Born in Brussels - and not in Moscow - Badibanga Ndeka is a member of the collective Chant D. Loups. After collaborating with Sefyu and Youssoupha, the little rapper left the pack. In solo, he shapes his world and lays the groundwork for a real revolution. It's because Badi has been there since the beginning. Long before the hype and triumph of Brussels rap, he was already setting the flow alongside his friend Stromae. Brought up on MTV clips and Congolese rumba, the artist has built up a sound and a solid reputation. Signed by the BBE Music (home to Roy Ayers, Madlib, J Dilla, Will.I.Am, Laurent Garnier & Carl Craig among others), Badi's album crosses borders and may be danced to without a dictionary. If French is the mother tongue of the tracks, the rhythms in Trouble Fête are indeed universal. Rapper, entrepreneur and contemporary speaker, Badi gives the best of himself here, in continuous flow and without lockdown.
