Elle et Moi by Koffi Olomide

This classic song released in 1989, is one of the songs that really put Koffi Olomide on the map during a time when the music charts in Zaire-Congo were still dominated by TPOK Jazz, Afrisa, Zaiko and Empire Bakuba.

Koffi composed the song to celebrate the birth of his first child, a daughter whom he named Minou.Koffi expresses his joy at the birth of his first child : “She’s here at last, more beautiful than any woman I’ve ever known, more beautiful than the sweetest of my illusions! Minou, Minou, like a ripe fruit, sweet to the core, you and I, every evening it’s carnival time together. Oh, who’ll come and take a picture of the pair of us? Minou, in my heart and in my soul, inseparable as milk in coffee. Oh, little daughter, you renew me!
