Behind The Scene

On the 13th July of 2020, The Transcend Artist Cyrille The Angel released the Single Natalia Mubenga on ITunes or Apple Music. It is also available on other Digital Stores. The song goes deep into some memories of Cyrille The Angel and brings us some new Treasure for meditation. But I would like to know everything about the song. Let’s hear from the Transcend Artist himself. Here is The Interview I had with Him.

About The Transcend: Good Day Cyrille The Angel!

Cyrille The Angel: Good Day Sam! How are you?

About The Transcend: Quite Good. First thing when I went through your Single Natalia Mubenga is the Cover Art of the Single…

Cyrille The Angel: Ah!

About The Transcend: Yes. Why did you choose this Picture for this Single?

Cyrille The Angel: Lol. Well, the song is some memories… it  still hurts me to think about it. I choose this picture because it really represents the song and it is a really great thing that I did.

About The Transcend: How did you capture this moment on the picture? We see you talking on the phone and then, you look straight in front of you… this is great.

Cyrille The Angel: Yes, it is great. I’ll answer that question in another interview, not now. This is not the time for me to answer to that question. This is the picture of this song.

About The Transcend: To illustrate that memory, you play the role of a Financial Trader living in London, UK. You met Natalia Mubenga before Uchebu, the West African Woman but you are only trying to date Natalia Mubenga now. Why now?

Cyrille The Angel: It is a difficult question because I don’t want to have my Congolese sisters angry with me. It’s just Music and maybe it is the time to sit around with my Congolese sisters and have a nice talk. Natalia is a Congolese girl a bit older than me, 4 years older. I am just trying to have them hyped up. After all they are my sisters. I’m a really proud Congolese.

About The Transcend: I see. The song Natalia Mubenga… how did you come to make the Instrumental? Was it some Special Inspiration you had during the Night?

Cyrille The Angel: No. I was walking in my living room and I just got that rhythm. I started moving and I said to myself, let me make a nice song to “My Pain”. It is how I call a girl I fell in Love with long ago. I had a bad dream where I saw her hindering my wedding. So, I decided to make the Instrumental to have a nice song because the Song My Pain is too languorous. I put myself on it and I opened my laptop and started working on the instrumental. I made the first, second, third, fourth and the fifth melody for the Soprano Saxophones. It could have gone to six Soprano Saxophones. And then, I added a new sound on the instrumental. Then, I tried to listen to it all and something was missing. That’s where I made the Drums as it is now.

About The Transcend: Yes. Incredible Drums… I love it.

Cyrille The Angel: Yes. It was difficult but I fought for it. Here, I am.

About The Transcend: And the recording? How was it?

Cyrille The Angel: The difficult part was writing the lyrics of the song. It is a new sound and wave. It is really difficult to grasp it. Soon as I made the instrumental, I sat down listening to it for hours. Then, as I was recording, I was also writing. So the writing phase and the recording are intertwined.

About The Transcend: How intertwined are they?

Cyrille The Angel: Well, before recording a verse, I will write it. And it was like that during the whole song. I stopped at the last Verse. It was so difficult to me to record it.

About The Transcend: How difficult was it?

Cyrille The Angel: When I recorded all the verses, I sat down to tackle the last verse that take more than 2 minutes. I tried that day and I found out that I was exhausted and emotionally dry. I tried but I couldn’t reach that level that is on the song. The next day, fully rested, I went for it and after three attempts, I made it.

About The Transcend: Are all your recording sessions always emotionally inclined like that?

Cyrille The Angel: Well, it depends of the song I am making. This song was to be emotionally inclined and I had to reach that. It’s all I did.

About The Transcend: I see.

The Single Isabel Mbella by Cyrille The Angel or The Sublime Charm

On the 29 february 2020, Cyrille The Angel released his Single Isabel Mbella on ITunes or Apple Music. The song was later released on other digital stores. The song is quite different from what Cyrille The Angel always brought on the table but still… it is something you should have a listen to or even buy it if you really love it.

Well, Our Team About The Transcend and I went to interview the Musical Artist: Cyrille The Angel about this very quenchy single: Isabel Mbella. Here is the Interview:

About The Transcend: Good Day, Cyrille The Angel!

Cyrille The Angel: Good Day, Sam! How are you?

About The Transcend: I am great. Today, I want to talk with you about your Single: Isabel Mbella. How did you come by the song?

Cyrille The Angel: Well, it is twofold.  The story is I made a Dream in the beginning of February. During the Dream I was invited to a Party and it was Congolese mothers who organized the party. I got into the house where the party was going and actually the Congolese mothers were waiting for me. They asked very politely to sit and they served me good foods and a drink. After I was served, one Congolese mother told me:”the one who is seated next to you… her name is Isabel Mbella.” I looked and there was a woman seated next to me. I couldn’t see her clearly unfortunately. When I woke up, I wrote down the Name. The Focus of the Dream was the name. The name was like the summary of the Dream

Then, for two weeks, I didn’t know what to do. Then, there was a debate in my Congolese community. And the debate was among my Congolese sisters and aunties. There was a generational debate that was going to become like a rift between two generations. So, I decided to make a Single with Isabel Mbella and during the song, I defend the Mothers or let’s say it clearly my Congolese aunties and my older sisters. This is the thing.

About The Transcend: I see, so the name Isabel Mbella is a name revealed to you. Hummm… what does the song Isabel Mbella tell?

Cyrille The Angel: It’s a story of a Love between myself, Cyrille The Angel and a Congolese woman who is quite older than Me. All of it is a Fiction. We met in London on a classic bar of London. It’s a Bar that Me, Uncle Loo and Hassan love to go. I met her sitted alone on the bar. So, I tried her there and she talked very well.

About The Transcend: I see. But who is Isabel Mbella? We know that in the Fiction that started since your fourth Solo Album: Afro Belle, you are a Trader who loves to have many escapades with women.

Cyrille The Angel: Lol. I don’t like to have escapades with women. I am just having Escapades with women and that’s the thing.

Isabel is a Daughter of a Congolese Politician. He saw everything in the Country. She did her High School in Congo, DR, Africa and then, went on to become an “Hotesse de l’air”. Then, she moved to London, UK to live. She met an excellent Congolese medical doctor who married her and they did 20 years before he passed away. She was the mother of 2 Children: a daughter and a boy. When I met her, her daughter was 20. She is 42 now. Isabel Mbella is 42. And me 30. This is for the story.

And we started dating. To her, I was her Consolation. She is a widow and everybody know how hard it is to lose someone to Death

About The Transcend: Indeed, but who was she to you?

Cyrille The Angel: she was a new wind… a new whisper. Of course, a night turned into many nights together and we started dating. And that’s where it became a problem to Congolese Society. For the story, her older daughter who is 20 wasn’t in good term with her. She trash talked her mother Isabel Mbella and when I met her, she was very down because she made so much sacrifices for the good upbraiding for her children and to be trash talked like that…

Now, the Congolese Society who is always very good at Publishing Things not right, informed the Daughter of Isabel about her Relationship with Me, the younger than her Mom. The daughter was upset and she went to ask forgiveness  for her trash talks but asked her Mother to end the relationship with her Consolation: Cyrille The Angel. Isabel doesn’t know what to do.

About The Transcend: And how do you feel on this whole scene?

Cyrille The Angel: I don’t like it. For the story, I came from very disturbing relationships with Lady Helene, Israela, Natalia and Uchebu.

About The Transcend: Of course, Uchebu… the Co-Star of your Album Afro Belle.

Cyrille The Angel: So, I don’t want something like this to happen again. So, I wrote the Song to express my Indignation toward the Congolese Society and Isabel Daughter. In the song, I am clearly not having it and I am asking my Baby Isabel: who got you drunk on this Love?

About The Trasnscend: And according to the Story, what is the Decision of The Congolese community of London and Worldwide on the Story?

Cyrille The Angel: It is what I am waiting to hear.

About The Transcend: I see. This is the feeling behind the song. Find the single Isabel Mbella by Cyrille The Angel on ITunes or Apple Music and other digital stores.

Cheers

About The Transcend: What did you try to express on your Song Original (I’ve Dunked on Y’All)?

Cyrille The Angel: I have created a New Musical Genre by myself and it is just a year that I did it. This is when I wrote and made the song. I am going after my haters and telling them this is what I did. And what I did is like a Dunk on the Opposing team. I made it.

About The Transcend: I see. The song is again so melodious…

Cyrille The Angel: Yes. It is and I made it that way. It is a song that I have enjoyed making…

About The Transcend: How was it making it?

Cyrille The Angel: I had in one of my Dream a tune. I recorded that tune and I made the instrumental to accompany that Tune. This is the Instrumental you have right now. It is me trying to accompany that Tune. The aim was to perform that Tune. Then, I tried but the Tune is Nigerian and I don’t have a Nigerian Soul. So, I decided to Rap during the whole song. And this is what happened actually. I made it this way.

Playing on the Background Cyrille The Angel – What You Sayin’ To Me

About The Transcend: What you sayin’ to Me… How did this song come to you?

Cyrille The Angel: Well, it is difficult to say… I just had that idea and I worked on it and it gives you this song out here. So far it is one of my best song and I have always loved it as it is.

About The Transcend: Indeed, it is an incredible song. But what did you try to express?

Cyrille The Angel: What you sayin’ to Me? I wanted to know what my haters were sayin’ to Me. What were they tellin’ Me. I had no answer as always. I just talked about what I did and what I went through to be here.

About The Transcend: You rap during the whole song without stop. I mean how did you come to that?

Cyrille The Angel: I worked hard on this song and I made it to this incredible point. It is an incredible song and I have loved what I did so far. It wasn’t easy to do it. When I made the instrumental, it wasn’t easy to make it. It wasn’t easy to write it and perform on it all. I had to dig deep. And it is what I did. It is sincerely what I did.

About The Transcend: I see. You talk about “Bena Kasai”. It means children of Kasai. What happened?

Cyrille The Angel: You know a part of me is Luba. Luba is the people from the South of Congo, DR, Africa. And the people were persecuted during 2016, I think. And lot of people fled to Angola. So in memory of some people dead, I wrote this verse.

About The Transcend: Is your song What You Sayin’ To Me an expression of a Self trying to Transcend and surpass all other sphere of his life?

Cyrille The Angel: Well, kind of. It is a song so Original and so new to Me. It is how I want my Music to be. The Rhythm is incredible and the saxophone…

About The Transcend: Yes… The Saxophone.

Cyrille The Angel: The Saxophone is incredible. I had to push it further. To say more… and this is what happened. It is an incredible song so far.

About The Transcend: I see. Well, we all love it. But tell me, how would you perform it live?

Cyrille The Angel: It is a dream of mine to perform it Live although it is a bit difficult. It is a Dream of mine and I have loved what I have done on it. I hope I can soon and I will get ready for that. It is what it is and it is sometime hard to re-perform it at the level recorded but you have to think about your people and I think if I can do it without playback that will be amazing.

About The Transcend: Definitely amazing… definitely. What do you love the most on this song?

About The Transcend: One of the Best songs of your third Solo Album Nzila Mule. Why have you done it?

Cyrille The Angel: Because I believe in Love and I believe that if we fight hard for it, we can get the best out of it. I believe in Love.

About The Transcend: But love is a Concept. We know that you can feel and live Love but to solve all the problems… I don’t believe it.

Cyrille The Angel: Well, I think Love is a way of life and when you are impregnated with it, you can see and change everything that is around You. To Me Love is a way of Life and it is what I tried to express on my song Lay It on Me.

About The Transcend: Your song Lay It on Me is an incredible song and you expand the subject of Love to Wisdom and Learning. Why?

Cyrille The Angel: Because it is only in Wisdom that Love makes sense. If you’re not wise or not seeking wisdom, then, Love will mean nothing to you. Love is so correlated with Wisdom. Love to Me is a way of Life.

About The Transcend: I see. I asked it because it is said Love is Blind. What do you say to it?

Cyrille The Angel: The Light can make you blind…. Lol.

About The Transcend: Lol.

Cyrille The Angel: This is why you need Wisdom and Knowledge and Faith to understand the different movement of Life. Life flows. And this is one of the characteristic of Life. It Flows… Life is like a River. And Love is there. Love is in Us and we should keep it and breed it.

About The Transcend: I see. And it is a Song So High. How the song Lay It on Me was made?

Cyrille The Angel: It should have been a song where my sister Saxayah would have been featured. Unfortunately, she couldn’t do it and I worked on the song alone. I decided to release it like this and I think it is pretty Great like this.

About The Transcend: Yes, it is. Produced by an American Producer from the USA… what is your say?

Cyrille The Angel: A genius… more cooperation will come later on but I love his instrumentals… he did a Great Job on it.

About The Transcend: I see. The song is so enigmatic and It goes deep.

Cyrille The Angel: Yes. It does. I talk about Love and I express it this way. It is an incredible song. Just incredible…

About The Transcend: I see. How did you come to make the song Roses and Thorns?

Cyrille The Angel: My cousin DJ Kabs came to visit me and he made the beat to show me a bit about Beat making. And it’s there that I will know about some new kicks and stuffs.

Cyrille The Angel: I believed that you gotta fight hard and be on it like it is supposed to. You gotta fight hard in life. And this is what I believe at that time.

About The Transcend: Do you still believe in it?

Cyrille The Angel: Yes. I still do believe in it but, you need a bit of Patience. And this is the message.

About The Transcend: I see. What was the best part when recording the song?

Cyrille The Angel: Writing the lyrics of the song was the most gratifying to me. I had to feel it and to remember stuffs. I had to create lot of images. I have already decided to rap during the whole song and at the time it was released, people told me that it is lot of words for a song. But I knew what I was expressing. There is lot of words play in the song and I love it. It is an incredible song. This was my best part. Performing it was challenging and I fought to have it at this level. Thanks God that we made it to this level

About The Transcend: Is it always a challenge to perform it to this level?

Cyrille The Angel: Yes. Always… it is always so. And I fought for it. I fought hard for it.

About The Transcend: When The Song is Over…

Cyrille The Angel: Yes. Remember that night when my cousin was talking to a girl at the end of a night. We started looking for him as we had to go with him. We thought he went himself when we found him at the counter talking to a woman who had no hairs but such a big bump on her. And he was just touching her head. Caressing is the word.  And Bob Marley song stir it up was playing… It is the end of the night in a nightclub and I asked him:”Are you bringing this girl home?” He was like yes, I am. And we left him talking with that girl. This is what is behind this song When The Song Is Over. Trying to get that chick around when the time is done and the nightclub closes. Lol.

About The Transcend: I know. You love Partying and this is one of the Fun song of this Album Nzila Mule.

Cyrille The Angel: Yes. It is an incredible song and I love what I did on it. I talk about the mad parties we’ve been having here in Johannesburg, South Africa. I used to party hard in Congo but here I was freer and this is a great souvenir.

About The Transcend: I see. Why did you try to catch that Moment when the nightclub closes and you try to get that woman to your place?

Cyrille The Angel: Because it always makes me laugh when I think about it. It is very funny to see it. Last time I was in a Nightclub, we did that. We really tried to get a woman around and me and my friend H-King couldn’t get any during the night at an expensive Nightclub in Johannesburg. So, at the last minute, we saw two girls and I went for them. We did have great time later on. Lol

About The Transcend: Lol. This is really funny.

Cyrille The Angel: Yes. It is really funny. It is a moment where men get serious about what they have in their hands but sincerely, I’ve always found it funny and to Me, just chill at the nightclub and enjoy the night. Don’t necessarily try to get someone tonight! Tonight! This is what I always tell my boys. Let’s go to just chill and see ladies around and people… and whatever happens you’re on it.

About The Transcend: How do you find the vibe in Johannesburg, South Africa?

Cyrille The Angel: Funny… The party vibe is funny and interesting. And I love to be around and be with my people. It is very interesting.

About The Transcend: I see. The song is so Original. Why such originality?

Cyrille The Angel: Because this is Me and what I have experienced in my life. It is how I want to make my Music, at least a part of it. I want people to have fun and enjoy what they are doing. This is what I love the most.

About The Transcend: Was it easy for you to write and make the song?

Cyrille The Angel: It wasn’t that easy. I had to dig deep and work hard on it. I had to work hard on it. But it had some problems for me to finish the song as I had to go through a very difficult Dream that will bring My song I promised, baby… But, soon as that thing passed, I was able to work on it and make the song.

About The Transcend: Still, this song is so incredible with such realism.

Cyrille The Angel: Yes. When I made the instrumental, I knew that’s how it would be. And this is the Best thing I have given on this song.

About The Transcend: What is your best part on this song?

Cyrille The Angel: Lol. I love the whole song as it is. I have no Best Part on this song. I just love it as it is.

About The Transcend: The Piano is fantastic. And the saxophone at the end… why did you add it?

Cyrille The Angel: I think that it needed it. I think that it needed that touch and I went for it. It is great.

About The Transcend: I see.
