My Style with Lingala artiste Ferre Gola. Congolese are fashion savvy. They not afraid to experiment with fashion especially the men who seem to have eyes trained on brilliant colors that make them stand out. My Style:  Is unique, trendy and attractive to the eyes. Something that most women and men cannot seem to get their eyes off.

Where I shop:  Most of my clothes are my own designer fashion shop in Paris and Kinsasha. However there are times when I shop at various designer shops who are known to dress me up depending on the occasion.  Favourite colours: I love black and white since it blends well with my light skin colour. I occasionally don luminous colors that make me stand out during my performances depending on the nature of the event. I can’t do without:  My precious designer G-Shock watch. It’s a part of me and I am very much attached to it.  It is the one thing that helps me organize myself well during my numerous tight schedules.  The other one is my stunner, which are part of my swag. I also use it to hide my embarrassment when approached by female fans Most expensive outfit:  I won’t really mention this for security purposes. A lot of my style is influenced by: European and Congolese culture. After all Congolese are known to be among the best-dressed people across the world. My role model is: Myself. Unlike most celebrities out there who look up to someone for inspiration mine is self - inspiration. I like women: Who are fashion conscious, authentic by nature and naturally beautiful. I wouldn’t court a woman who is addicted to make up. My accessories: Include a pure silver chain with the RDC (Democratic Republic of Congo written French) initials inscribed in it.  A diamond ring, stunners, studs just to name a few. I like my hair: Short or long as long as it remains natural- it enables me do whatever I desire with it besides bringing out the masculinity in me. I can go to lengths of: Changing cloths up to four times a day depending on my schedule. During major concerts it could go beyond that. My favorite perfume: Any perfume that smells good… more so from France. My reason for not mentioning names is because I risk promoting a product by doing so. My tattoos symbolize: My trendy celebrity status, and symbol.
