About the host city
With a population of 9.5 million, Kinshasa is the third largest city on the African continent, equal in size to Johannesburg. The Kinois (inhabitants of Kinshasa) are known for their sense of humour, their music and their love for dancing.The two main languages spoken in Kinshasa are Lingala and French.
Kinshasa is located along the southern bank of the Congo River, facing Brazzaville, the capital of neighboring Republic of the Congo. Kinshasa and Brazzaville url the only two capitals in the world that are in direct view of each other.
The Boulevard du 30 Juin is the main artery of Kinshasa and cuts right across the city. Three important areas are the governmental area, the ‘cité de l'OUA’, ‘the Zone the Matonge’, popular for its nightlife and the commercial and residential area of ‘Gombe’.
Kinshasa is frequently referred to as the capital of African music due to its popular music called ‘Ndombolo’. Papa Wemba and Kofi Olomide are two of the most popular Kinshasa-based bands.
