Did Kinshasa Just Pass Paris As the World's Most Populous French-Speaking City?

Flipping through "Demographia World Urban Areas 15th Annual Edition: 2019 04"
to page 23 we see population estimates of:
#27 Congo (Dem. Rep.) Kinshasa   12,960,000

#33 France Paris                           10,960,000
The whole thing is full of amazing stats (there are now 38 urban areas with populations over 10 million) but the Francophone tidbit (it's not highlighted in the report but you know they speak French in Kinshasa) kinda jumps out at one.
