Thousands Mourn Madilu System
Thousands of Congolese gathered in the streets of the capital Kinshasa to pay tribute to late rumba singer MADILU SYSTEM.
Madilu System, real name Jean De Dieu Bilau, died in a city hospital on 11 August (07) after suffering from diabetes.
After the former TP OK Jazz star's coffin spent three days in Kinshasa's main stadium, huge crowds took to the streets to follow the casket to the cemetery for his funeral on Thursday (23Aug07).
Lubangi Muniania, head of music label Tabilulu Productions, says, "To most fans of TP OK Jazz, Madilu had a particular way of singing, his system - no wonder he became System."
