Angelique performs with such joy and pride. Her voice is clear and piercing just a compelling performer.

This is an unmatched level of artistry she really set a standard with this video . I wonder if any other artist will be able to make something as magical as this

African music is just genuinely amazing. From the beat to the voices. Unique!

Wombo lombo
Wombo lombo
Wombo lombo
Wombo lombo

Gbogbo nyan n’ so houn kp onindjo kan m’b
Niboni mon lri nikan odamin lohoun
Il onindjo wa lgb odo
Inou gbrko oman tou oko akpdja
Have you ever seen this man moving?
Do you think anyone else can do it?
Really this dance has got something,
Something, no way you can’t beat it.

Wombo lombo
Wombo lombo
Wombo lombo
Wombo lombo

Gbogbo nyan n’so kp onindjo kan m’b
Niboni mon lri nikan odamin lohoun
Il onindjo wa lgb odo
Inou gbrko oman tou oko akpdja
Have you ever seen this man moving?
Do you think anyone else can do it?
Really this dance has got something,
Something, no way you can’t beat it.

Ho ham ham ho ham
Yll ho ham ham ho ham
Ho ham ham ho ham

Wombo lombo
Wombo lombo
Wombo lombo
Wombo lombo

Have you ever seen this man moving?
Do you think anyone else can do it?
Really this dance has got something,
Something, no way you can’t beat it.

Wombo lombo
Wombo lombo
