“I expected him to go away”: Lou Deprijck, great friend of Grand Jojo, had just recorded a piece with him


The famous singer and producer of 75 years (Ca plane pour moi) reveals to us “the dazzling cancer” which was eating away 85-year-old belgian popular icon who died last night. But also the track he recorded with “his brother” two months ago in the studio. “He leaves me with a great void”; “We made bamboulas not possible together!”

“55 years of love … I am devastated”, had already reacted this night on Facebook, accompanied by a photo with his friend Jean, Lou Deprijck. We reached him by phone when he got off the plane in Buriram, Thailand, where he resides on his Pra Koun Chaii farm six months a year. “I cried throughout the flight,” he tells us, still in shock, 14,000 kilometers from Belgium. “People looked at me a little weird, mostly masked, but it feels good to cry … I expected him to go away because he had cancer which woke up very very late . I had had him on the phone again before leaving for Thailand a week ago. He had said to me: I am not in good spirits, I do not want to have an operation. have his leg operated. But he refused. The doctor said it was incurable cancer, a lump in his groin that had kept him from walking for several weeks. ” And to add: “He really had no more morale following his illness … it’s sad”.

More than a producer for Jean, Lou Deprijck was also one of his greatest friends. “He’s my brother,” he continues wistfully. “I produced a lot of songs for him but we also made a lot of bamboulas with him, I have many memories, he leaves me a great void.”
