Jolie Detta: "Massu"

Jolie Detta, Franco & T.P. O.K. Jazz: Massu (Congo, 1986)

From Youtube: The reason Detta did not make any more records with Franco after this one, was that this 18-year-old girl was not strong enough to carry the succes that came out of it. Children shouting her name at her in the street, etc. The succes was too much for her, so she became "sick", or at least, that was the way Franco put it.

This is the best song I've ever heard.

  1. Jollie Detta is just strikingly beautiful and has a beautiful voice.Am so shocked in 1986 when she sang this song she was only 18 years old. I was 4 years old in 1986. Whenever, I hear these songs I feel very nostalgic. Golden oldies with a message unlike songs of nowadays. GOD Bless all of us
