Osilisi ngai mayele by Josky Kiambukuta (Translation and Lyrics)


This song was released in 1987 as part of the album named Franco Present Josky Kiambukuta. The album featured two other songs: Kita Mata Bloque and Minzata. It marked Josky’s return to TPOK Jazz after he had left the band in 1986 to pursue solo projects with Ntesa Dalienst and others.

Osilisi Ngai Mayele is a rendition of Josky’s 1979 hit Tokabola sentiment. This time Josky is joined on lead vocals by the then new sensation, the youthful Malage De Lugendo. It is a song about a woman who¬† has been deserted by her husband, a man known as Lukusa Tanzi. She tells Lukusa to return to the marriage though he has strayed.
