Jules Shungu Wembadio Pene Kikumba, commonly known as Papa Wemba (14 June 1949 – 24 April 2016) was a Congolese rumba (later known as soukous) singer and musician. He was one of Africa's most popular musicians, prominent in world music, and a fashion icon who popularized the Sapeur look and style through his musical group Viva la Musica.
