Papa Wemba: Was he killed or this is just another conspiracy theory?

The mortal remains of one of Africa’s greatest music icon, Papa Wemba, 65 was welcomed today April 29, 2016 by hundreds of mourners in his native country, Democratic Republic of Congo–from Abidjan-Ivory Coast, where he died.

But as burial arrangements are being made by his family, the question everyone is asking is: Was he killed? If yes, who killed him?

Papa Wemba: The African King of Rumba who fell never to rise again

Well, we shouldn’t have been here in the first place, if someone on social media(Facebook to be precise) had not put his Sherlock Holmes prowess to for us to review, publishing the singer’s last minutes during what became his last stage performance.

In the video during the FEMUA urban music festival on Sunday, 24 April 2016, there is man (boy) who comes up on stage from behind the curtains, the swap the microphone of the Singer, and few minutes later, Papa Wemba would fall never to rise up again.

The questions no one is asking, are:

  • Who is that man?
  • What was he doing behind the curtains?
  • Did he poison (jinx) that microphone?

So, was that microphone-switcher a scape-goat, finding himself at the right place at the wrong time at the cold-bloodedness of conspiracy theorists? Well, truth of the matter is, we might never know the answers to these questions. At least, not now. But if indeed there is an iota of smoke in this fire, we are gonna find out the same way, the mic-switcher was spotted.
