ANOTHER SAD NEWS:
« on: September 03, 2016, 09:08:17 am »
It has been reported that Thierry Kobi Mantuika, ex TPOK guitarist is dead. If true then this is a very sad news.

No musician has ever played Franco style like  Mantuika. In fact in a number of TPOK songs, many listeners may mistakenly think Franco played the mi-solo when he actually did not participate at all.

He joined OK as a lead guitarist but later drifted to Mi-solo after the recruitment of Michelino. He later combined  so well, with the late Gerry (Dialungana), Papa Noel and Dizzy Madjeku  in some of the best TPOK releases.

Here is a young Mantuika  ( next to Simaro on the right) in the hit song Mbongo. His guitar defined this song.https://youtu.be/hONHZwYxYZY

You're right. I always thought it was Franco.
