August 13, 2022. Julien Bouadjie, French R’n’B phenomenon known as Tayc, delivers a performance at the Ivoire Golf Club, in Abidjan Cocody Riviera. If Ivorian music is fond of “enjailments” accompanied by suggestive poses, the explicitly lascivious character of the singer’s work leaves some Ivorians speechless. The sentimental wave is his almost exclusive goodwill and his stage behavior begins au tuning fork of love songs. Sentimental, of course, but the time of the Ivorian prude Daouda the sentimental is well over.
Ivory Coast: when Koffi Olomidé becomes his diva at Femua
That day, in Ivory Coast, on the title Give it to me, Tayc takes a fan on stage. While the spectator finds herself straddling the showman, the latter leads her into a dance so sensual that the young lady will announce, a few hours later, the breakup with her companion…
Even if the mime of hugs on stage still largely escapes accusations of touching, the French public has already rustled with bad buzz on an overly demonstrative Tayc. Born of Cameroonian parents, is the artist unaware that in Africa, we “stick the little one” more with words than with gestures? After the announcement of the sponge throw of the jealous companion of the dancer for an evening, Twittos ivorians denounce a “sexual thirsty behavior” on the part of the singer.
the one who sang One drink too many did he sketch one dance too many? This is clearly not his opinion. A few days after the event in Abidjan, the singer replies: “If your guy leaves you because you went on stage with Tayc, it was not the right one”…
Culture shock ? The programs of concerts by Afro-French artists sometimes take on the appearance of misadventures. Like the performance of the Congolese from France Gims – then “Maître Gims” -, in Burkina in 2016, which was presented as a flop: out of phase with the rates with the local standard of living, attitude considered contemptuous towards the fans and the journalists, low attendance of the public and truncated concert… The critics, there too, had summer virulent.
