CHRISTIAN BELLA

BIOGRAPHY

Christian Bella is a remarkable and energetic African musician based in Dar Es Salaam Tanzania. He is a citizen of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

Bella officially got into music since the age of 15 years, where he was the leader of the band of the Chateau, which was owned by Frank, a close ally of musician Papa Wemba.

He is nick-named ‘Mfalme wa Masauti’ (King of Voices), Bella’s popularity has continued to expand and increase ever since he was brought in by musician King Dodoo, as fans began to accept his natural talent rapidly one song after the other. King Dodoo began to ‘recognize’ Bella in some of his songs and album tracks while performing live shows in Nairobi, Kenya.

At the time they made the album with Chateau Du Soleil Band. He later joined the Akudo and his first song was ‘Walimwengu si Binadamu’.

Bella started from the bottom with a bunch of local youth composing songs and dances, among these includes was Fally Ipupa who later left to go to Koffi Olomide. At 16, he approached Koffi for trials and was accepted. However, was not given the opportunity to hit the stage and so ended up sitting on the side. It was then that he decided to join Akudo Impact but all his thoughts were to return to Koffi. Koffi’s band had some internal issues and when Bella found out about this he sensed his dreams would be fulfilled given the chance.

However, before he made the decision to leave in return for Koffi, his friend advised him to release another Swahili song after ”Walimwengu si Binadamu” before departing. That is was the source of his hit song ‘Yako Wapi Mapenzi’ which was a big hit and this forced Bella to change his decision to return to DRC and instead venture into the music industry in Tanzania.
