The song Yamba Ngai was released in 1985. It was one among many songs composed by Tabu Ley and sung by Mbilia Bel.
A woman expresses her joy at getting married religiously. She discusses her emotions during the marital ceremony. She asks her partner to accept her faithfully in marriage. Having chosen her husband from among so many men, she promises her fidelity, dedication and obedience throughout their life together.

Hi, Do you know what language Mbilia is singing? Greetings from Colombia!
Greetings to you Colombiano. Lingala is the most commonly used language used by Congolese musicians. And we understand it.
My all time female musician. Long live Mbilia Bel. Nalingi yo.
