It looks like that the arrangement of the song Libala was inspired by songs of Big Stars, where they were starting some songs with sebene and playing sebene throught the verses .

Libala is for me the best song Reddy Amisi ever wrote. If he lived in France or the US he would get alot of respect for the songs he made about different subjects of life (Verite Kinuani, Bomengo ata Kala, Profitez, Ekomba, etc.)  and be a multimillionaire.

Reddy once releaved in an interview that the song came after a conservation with Didi Kinuani where they talked about the disadvantage and profits of a mariage and how a woman had to be, etc.. Reddy added in the same interview that Didi Kinuani sometimes jockes to him that he has to give him the royalties of the song, because he kind of co-writed the song.

I feel the connection and the inspiration with the chords and subject.
