How it all started

Our Journey!

CongoTalks243.com, envisioned by Felicite Kazadi, is not just a web platform but a mission to narrate the untold stories of the DRC. Growing up amidst the vibrant Congolese culture, Felicite recognized the gap between her experiences and global perceptions. This realization birthed CongoTalks243 – an initiative to share the DRC’s true essence: the good, the better and the best; the stories of yesterday, today and tomorrow! From its historical tales to its cultural richness and everyday life, we aspire to paint a fuller, bona fide and current picture of this Central African gem.

Let's meet Felicite Kazadi

Born in the DRC’s heartlands, Felicite Kazadi’s life was a cocktail of colours, sounds, tastes, and textures unique to the Congolese experience. After moving to the Pacific region, she confronted global misconceptions about her homeland. Her passion for sharing the real DRC led to CongoTalks243 in 2019. Through this platform, we hope to bridge perceptions, sharing the nation she knows and loves with the world.
