I've been waiting for this for about 4 years after the live version from 1989 was posted.

The song was dedicated to the Angolan Mingiendi Mbala Nzeteke, being a refugee he made it like many other Angolans in that era to the top and became one of the richest men in Kinshasa. He was a big donor for football club AS Vita and the political parti ABAKO (Alliance des Bakongo).

The song would later being used by atalaku's for cries and El Paris would use a part for their song dedicated to Tchatcho Mbala.

I still prefer the live version. The original song has legend Edo Nganga from Brazzaville as lead singer, who passed away last year.
