abstract
Tells the "rags-to-riches" story of a poor rural musician who realizes that to succeed in today's music world he must go to the city and break into radio and television. In Kinshasha he uses his wit and talent to win a beautiful wife, trick his greedy boss, and succeed in singing his "theme song" on national television. The film stars Papa Wemba, one of the legendary figures in Zairian music, and takes place in Kinshasha, Zaire's exhilarating and exasperating capital. In French with English subtitles.
