BM na lela yooo. Since this track came out, i've been listening to it.
When you need something done better do it yourself
if you listen to haters you're leaving yourself... makolongulu
yeah u know that I'm making my money myself
never see me struggle, I'm well in my health... makolongulu
everybody knows that I'll be doing alright
trynna make a living then I'll be out of sight
and you know that my kids will never be cryin'
Coz daddy's gonna show you one hell of a time... makolongulu
ahhh somoooo. bonne anne (happy new year & love u all)
I believe this is part of the lyrics of that song, after the first sentence and up to the word "ahhh".

Juedisha. It's funny. They r basically saying u fall into a problem and u get kicked away forgetting to wear ur shoes or barefoot. by ur wife, gorlfriend, parents etc... it's so funny but i really love congolese music and i never get enough of this one. Makolongulu = Barefoot

This question is written in Nigerian Pidgin English. I think it reads "What is the meaning of this word "makolongulu"?
