Omona Wapi is an album by Congolese singer-songwriters and bandleaders Franco and Tabu Ley Rochereau. Both artists competed for popularity in Africa in the latter half of the 20th Century as they contributed to the development of soukous. Though typically considered to be archrivals, the duo recorded several albums together. Omona Wapi was released by the independent American label Shanachie Records in 1985 and reissued on CD in 1991. It was one of the final recordings of Franco, who released some 150 albums during his career and died of AIDS in 1989.
