Since 2016, Wilfried Luzele, aka Lova Lova, has been evolving within the alternative cultural scene of Kinshasa (Democratic Republic of Congo) as a musician and performer. His musical style is multiple, mainly rock, sometimes punk and often inspired by traditional Congolese music. He sings in Lingala, Kikongo and French. His lyrics describe with humour and intensity the urban life of Kinshasa. Sometimes his words leave reality to fly into phantasmagorical worlds and delirious landscapes.
In 2018 he launched his first album entitled "Kizobazoba", produced thanks to a participatory financing, and played a concert at the French Institute of Kinshasa (DRC) on the occasion of the
release of the album. In 2019, he performed at two major festivals in Kinshasa : JazzKiff and Africa Music Forum. The same year he released the album "Mokili na poche" in collaboration with the children of the Kamikazi workshop and the Oyo project.
A year later, Lova Lova moved to France to prepare his other musical project "Mutu Wa Ngozi" released in 2020. His visual universe has been highlighted in several exhibitions in Congo and in France.
