This 2015 music video says about itself:
Soul Makossa – Manu Dibango (Original)
Soul Makossa meaning: “I will dance.”
Translated from Dutch NOS radio today:
Saxophonist and bandleader Manu Dibango has died from the effects of the coronavirus. The 86-year-old musician from Cameroon was best known for the worldwide hit Soul Makossa from 1972. The chorus ‘mama-sé, mama-sa, mama kossa’ was used in 1983 by Michael Jackson in Wanna Be Startin ‘Somethin’. That chorus was also used in 2007 by Rihanna in the song Don’t Stop the Music.
Manu Dibango died in a hospital in Paris.
