Kossa is a fusion of Makossa and Afro pop – this is the first track on Ale Myz’s Reminisce EP. This song is written and performed by Ale Myz, and it was produced by Tam Gaëlo. Kossa was inspired by old school Cameroon Makossa so Ale Myz named it “Kossa”. She reminds us of, and at the same time pays respect to some Cameroon Makossa legends like Manu Dibango, Petit Pays, Grace Decca and more. With her soothing vocals, Ale Myz uses 5 different languages (English, Pidgin English, Bangwa, Duala and French) as she sings. This is a very catchy song which will get you vibing from start to finish. Listen while singing along with the lyrics.
Ale Myz – Kossa lyrics

 

[Verse 1:]

This melody keeps ringing in my head,

I di try for member say, na who singam eh?

I was still young,

I had to dig up stuff, I had to put in work.

I no sleep for night

Na so so work for night

 

The music is so sweet,

You listen to it once, you fall in love twice

Ei no di ever sour, it stood the test of time

 

[Chorus:]

Ah o, ah o eh, it’s a beautiful song

Bulose Bulose, Bulose mbina mbo

Ah ei, ah  Iya, it’s a beautiful song

Mami, papi , J’aime ce que vous faites comme ça
