The “Queen of Afro-Zouk,” Monique Seka has embraced, not merely the music of her homeland, but influences from around the world. During an early-’90s interview, she described, “WHILE I sing, I don’t find Africa, but I find all the Dark people.” Descended from a family group of music artists, Seka started her profession in 1982 as an associate of her uncle Jhon Morgan’s group, the Maya Melodye Band. After an extended stint using the Ivory Coastline Television Orchestra, she released her solo profession with an record of love music, Tontie Affou, in 1985. Seka’s second record, Missounwa, released four years afterwards, received the Gran Prix de la Musique Afro-Caraibeene. Using the discharge of her third record, Okaman, in 1995, Seka reached out to a global audience. The name track sold a lot more than 1,000,000 copies.
