This video [French] claims that kizomba was created after zouk creator Kassav' inspired Angolan artists.

On the opposite, Eduardo Paim has claimed [Portuguese] that kizomba was created independently in Angola, inspired by Afro Sound Star, then brought to Europe where it was confused with zouk.

Which one is right?
