More Info:

His real name Namwisi Ngoy, alias Reddy Amisi aka Baïlo Canto, was born on May 5, 1960 in Kinshasa in a family of eight children. He is married and the father of 4 children. Reddy Amisi is a talented singer form the Viva La Musica stables. Amisi sung as a child in the church choir, and as he continued singing, his talent was spotted and he started singing in a group called Le Juvénile. Already in 1977, at age of 17, Papa Wemba who was impressed by his voice, asked him to join Viva La Musica but Amisi felt too young yet and preferred to continue his school education first. Finally in October 1982, after Kester Emeneya left Viva la Musica with 12 other musicians, Reddy Amisi joined Viva la Musica. He became a principal singer and composed various popular songs, but he was also able to record albums in his own name, backed by Viva la Musica. When several musicians left Viva la Musica in 1992 to create Nouvelle Generation de la Republique Democratique Du Congo, he remained loyal to Papa Wemba. At one occasion (in 1994), he established his own band (with which he recorded the CD Prudence), but Papa Wemba was not happy with this initiative, and took over the band and renamed it into Nouvelle Ecriture.
