We all should know by now that Koffi Olomide is a big provocateur.
Throughout this song, Koffi is condemning people for talking about him night and day.
He portrays himself as an extremely poor person. He grew up in such a poverty to the point where his parent didn’t afford to buy him shoes. The opening line Tsha-Tsho eza mayi means Tsha-Tsho is water. Tsha-Tsho is the name of his rhythm.
