Do Do Ki Do

Jay Sand first learned of this song through CMN member Lisa “Mama Lisa” Yannucci’s site. Both Lisa and Jay learned more about it from the impressive Lady Melisse Nambangi, founder of the Minnesota African Women’s Association. Ms. Nambangi offered the following translation, adding, “I think the song has meaning but the lyrics have been so corrupted that it is difficult to recognize the language and the meaning. Now that it’s gaining popularity, maybe someone will recognize the language and tell us what it is. The one word that is recognizable is ‘dodo’ or ‘dodokido’ which is what we call fried ripe plantains. Maybe an appreciation of food song.”
