Did you watch the concert prior to Rumble in the Jungle aka Rope-A-Dope! Kinshasa, Zaire
I remember when my friends dad name Marc telling me he worked for Mobutu (former and Current day Congo) . I knew some other people who told me they lived with Mobutu in the day.. highschool girlfriend. but I don't like talking about her.. especially her Brother >:[ crazy mofo!
fucking CIA snuffed out the belgian guy and replaced with some other dude before Mobutu took over. Zaire received a lot of money from the states. enough to hold this big ass festival of Soul in 1974.
BB King and James Brown mother fuckers! CIA is responsible for Rumble in the Jungle and the Zaire Blues Festival.. one of the biggest ever held.
it raised lots of money for the wars in Africa probably. or some other event.
