Papa Wemba has died aged 66.The Congolese musician known for his impeccable dressing style as much as the Rhumba Rock sound which he pioneered, collapsed on stage and was later confirmed dead.

The musician whose real name was Jules Shungu Wembadio Pene Kikumba was performing at the the Festival des musiques urbaines d'Anoumabo (FEMUA) In Cote d'Ivore when he fell in the middle of his act.

Footage posted by the Mirror shows a choreographed dance by his dancers and while the star falls to the ground as the backup dancers rush to prop him up while the music still continues. The video does not show any efforts to resuscitate him, it is unclear if medical assistance was sought for him.

My brother bought me his CD.  Great music.

Soul's Billy Paul, singer of Me and Mrs Jones, dies

He was best known for his 1972 hit Me and Mrs Jones, which won a Grammy award and reached number one in the US.
A statement on his website said he died on Sunday of a "serious medical condition". The NME music magazine has reported that this was pancreatic cancer.
Mr Paul, who was born as Paul Williams in Philadelphia, helped shape the course of modern R&B music.
In his youth, he performed alongside music legends including Charlie Parker and Nina Simone.
His biggest hit Me and Mrs Jones, about an extra-marital affair, has been covered by artists including Michael Buble and Hall & Oates.

At least he made it to old age!

I wouldn't joke about secret poison chemtrail-bearing microwave laser needles. Obama might get you next, and then go eat a hamster to celebrate.

Oh, and when he got done with the hamster, he'd share a spirited high-five with fellow Illuminati overlord ... wait for it ... David Icke!

I heard Obama prefers hamsters. Less fur, a bit leaner (he has high cholesterol).

Poor guy, RIP.
I've never heard of him, I don't think.  


There have been several  deaths of famous people on stage or at work. While they were not seen talking their last breath, the initial collapse was publicly seen and invariably regarded as part of the act by the unsuspecting audience!

3 of our famous comedians Eric Morecambe, Tommy Cooper and Sid James passed after collapsing on stage.  Also seen a footballer and a football manager Jock Stein both collapse and die on TV in the UK.

Popular wildlife presenter  Steve Irwin passed soon after he was stung by a stingray live on TV

Music producer David Gest did not die in public but his death was notable as it happened before his scheduled tour titled 'David Gest is not dead.'  Congolese music legend Papa Wemba dies mid-performance at age 66 1363015401

I remember the Tommy Cooper death because I was watching the programme at the time and like most people Ithought it was part of the act

I also remember Jock Stein as well at Ninian Park, Cardiff, in the world cup qualifier. At a time when he should have been celebrating qualifying for Mexico he sadly passed away. A great football manager and a giant of a man.
