I received this song from Cameroon a while back. It was identified as coming from the Bali tribe. Unfortunately, the language wasn’t identified, and an English translation wasn’t provided.
The Bali tribe speaks Mungaka. But I’m not sure if they speak any other languages also.
Here are the lyrics in the original language…
Moni mbebela mbebela mbeb
kwatu njenge njongo chaka
fofo mbeh mbeh
mohlu nyhani nyhani
moli koli koli
tuh mgah mbeh
one muh buh
If anyone can help confirm the language of this song and/or provide an English or French translation, please comment below.
