The Longomba’s brothers, Lovy and Christian left Kenya for the U.S to look for greener pastures. The Duo who have not stayed in the US for 9 years are now doing good,they two own a recording label that is doing well abroad. Lovy has now landed on a deal to recorded the sound track of Fast and Furious 8 that will be premiere on 14th April 2017.
While in an interview with Willy M Tuva the Lovy had this to say;
’’All I can say is that I am making a lot of money. I am climbing the ladder. In 2014 I got my first ever Grammy nomination after working with Iggy Azalea.I have worked with nearly everyone in the industry .I have just received a call while seated here and I am being told to go and produce Fast and Furious 8’s soundtrack.’’
Their exit came at a time when they were on top of the Kenyan charts and settling in America wasn’t easy for them. However, things picked up and the sky no longer became the limit for them but the initiation of their many achievements. This is after a whole 9 years of struggling to get decent footing.
Lovy Longomba together with his wife Ida Longomba founded a prophetic and deliverance ministry called RCJC Ministries in California where Lovy is the lead pastor. Papa Lovy as members of his church call him is said to have healing powers, prays for members of his church suffering from illness and they get healed.
On the other hand Christian Longomba was recently hospitalized and went through an operation but now he is healed and back to his feets as an artist.
Lovy, who is a seasoned music producer, having produced a couple of hits including their own ‘African Queen’ has landed one major deal that will not only put his name on the Hollywood radar but also put Kenya out there. Lovy has been selected to be part of the team that will produce the soundtrack to Fast and Furious 8 which is set to premiere in April,14th 2017.
The two have roots in DRC Congo where they are related to Awilo Longomba the famous Rhumba Music.
