Fally Ipupa

Singer / Chanteur

Fally Ipupa is an artist of Congolese origin rocked by music since a young age. Indeed, his family being a practicing Catholic, it is within a religious choir that he makes his first scales and begins to sing.

Teenager, his honeyed voice opens the doors of all groups in his neighborhood, then in the Congolese capital. At the end of the 90s, he was noticed by Koffi Olomide (note: star of the song in Congo) and thus integrates his orchestra Latin Quarter.

Fally immediately finds its place, becoming one of the pillars of the group. Fally then starts a solo career.

Above all, it is a hard worker, who constantly improves as a writer, performer, guitarist and dancer … And that does not take long to pay; With 100,000 copies sold, his first album, “LAW PATH”, was a gold album when he was released in 2006, when he also won the prize for Best Central African artist at the Kora Awards.

In 2011, he was crowned Best Francophone Artist at the MTV Africa Music Awards, and was nominated for the BET Music Awards in 2012. A Trace Music Award will follow in 2013, Fally Ipupa becomes the Best Artist of African Music.

His third album, “POWER Kosa Leka”, has been available since 2013, and we hear his renewed desire to offer his listeners the lascivious chamades of a rumba that is both futuristic and mixed.

Fally is also distinguished by his love of fashion that makes each of his appearances a very noticed occurrence. In Africa, without even wanting to, he creates the trend, in fashion and music.

With more than fifty million views on Youtube, his signature with the record label Universal Music France heralds a new turning point for Fally Ipupa, who will now dare to tint his music with a hint of pop and many other surprises.
