Renowned Gabonese Zouk artiste Oliver N'goma has died. Ngoma died on Monday in the wee hours of the morning at Omar Bongo Hospital in Libreville, Gabon. He suffered kidney failure, an ailment he had battled for the last two years.
Nicknamed Noli, N'goma was born in 1959 in a musical family.
His father was a renowned harmonica player. This music affiliation rubbed onto the young N'goma rather profoundly forcing the artiste to abandon the photography training he was undergoing in France in 1988 and pursue music full time.
It is this that gave birth to the album Bane. To many Ugandans, Bane was and still is their Zouk anthem. It is the song that propelled N'goma from a music upstart, to superstar. The album became one of the best sellers to this day in African music history.
From there on N'goma's light shone on with the artiste releasing more classics like Adia, Julia and Icole among others. His music was catchy and when his songs were played, it was hard for one to remain seated. His music was categorised as Afro-Zouk, a sound that dominated the music scene in the 90's and N'goma was one of its most renowned promoters. He last came to Uganda in 2003 which was his third visit to the country. His last performance was in Libreville last Saturday where he was celebrating a book that had been written about his musical journey.
May God rests his soul in eternal peace...AMEN!
SIJUI UTABIRI WA JUNIUS UTASEMAJE NA VIFO VYA WASANII...
Mnyaazi Mungu mwenye rehma na amrehemu na kumpa pumziko.
Ila amuhukumu kutokana na Dhambi alizotenda, kwani kwa kutokufanya hivyo basi itakuwa ni kama kumwogopa shetani ambaye ndie alikuwa akimpa vishawishi kiumbe huyu alipokuwa na uhai wake.
Zaore moyo kanderia..,,maria ndewe
Juzi tu nimesikia ule wimbo wake ambao ulikuwa ni anthem ya miaka ile sijui unaitwaje ila kila nikisikia unanipa memories za long time.

Anayeongelewa hapa sio yule Mzimbabwe Mutukudzi, ni M-Gabon Oliver N'goma
Mi mwenyewe,nilishaanza kufikiri kwamba ni Mutukudzi,lakini nikawa napata wasiwasi,kwa sababu alipiga nyimbo na Jide mwaka 2011 kama sikosei..........
For real? jamani... RIP Oliver Ngoma
ha haaa, kumbe tupo wengi....
Mwali umeona huu uzi ni wa lini?
eti pamoja na kuwa mpenzi sana wa nyimbo zake lakini sikuwa najua kama alishakufa long time hivyo, lol!
afadhali sipo peke yangu
Kumbe jamaa alikufa siku nyingi hivi???
Kitambo sana. Nashangaa habari mnazipata leo. Huenda hamjui kuwa hata Madilu System alikufa.
Hakyanani nyie mtakuwa mnaumwa.
Oliver Ng'oma, one of my all times African singers.
Shame hata sijui alikuwa anasema nini kwenye nyimbo zake lakini hizo beats, gitaa, basi tuu.
hiyo accusation ya kuumwa naikubali kabisaaaaaaaa, wala sipingi.
kweli eti sikuwa najua kama kafa, lol!
yaani kesho mtu angeniambia Oliver Ngoma anakuja kupiga uwanja wa taifa ningenunua tiketi..... kumbe.. mbuzi kwa gunia
Hauko peke yako mkubwa mwenzangu....Hata mimi sikujua....
Nyimbo zake zinanikumbusha disco la Makutupora 1992....it was really great..!!
RIP Oliver N'goma
