Hulk Hogan in Kinshasa

Kinshasa’s unique brand of professional wrestling culture has suddenly attracted a number of artists and photographers to the city.

It must be the costumes and the lively crowds or the references to “black magic.” Anyway, we went looking for these photographs when the music video for rapper Baloji and fellow Congolese Konono N°1’s collaboration “Karibu Ya Bintou” was posted on Youtube yesterday (watch from the 3.05 mark especially), this time with English subtitles:
