Kudos to the Congolese

I'm not too into soukous, mainly because many of the beats are over-used & recycled, but this track in my opinion is somewhat different and stands out from many others of it's genre.

The artist is called Samba Mapangala from the Democratic Republic of the Congo. He now lives in the US.

What the song is about:

"Mama abota ngai alobaki na ngai boyee, "Samba nakokendee, batelango baleki noki basala mokulu naboya yee" (bakima kelasi)

My mother who gave birth to me admonished me when she was about to pass away "Samba I'm dying..take care of your younger siblings and ensure that they complete classes (school)
