Lokassa Ya Mbongo, Ballou Canta and Shimita El Diego formed the Soukous Stars with master guitarist Dally Kimoko in 1990 as an outgrowth of their experiences playing together in Les Quatre Etoiles in the 80s. This picture shows Shimita on the left and Nyboma on the right (and Chico Mowatu in the background?).
Ever changing, the group is reorganizing again with Nyboma and Dally Kimoko no longer members. They remain the hottest dance band around, best known for a medley of covers of past hits in songs like "Lagos Nights" and "Ghana Success".
