This classic hit is one of the most popular songs composed by Simaro Lutumba. It was part of an album that featured three other songs composed by Simaro: Testament Ya Bowule, Vaccination ya Ba soucis and Aminata na Zangi Visa. All composed by Simaro and sung by four different vocalists.


A man’s infidelity leads a wife to doubt her physical beauty. When communication with her husband becomes impossible, she uses certain cultural images to emphasize the man’s ingratitude. She laments a curse that has befallen her and how everything she does is unappreciated.
