Colonisation is a song by Madilu system. It is a rumba song telling the story of an alcoholic man who was spending his money on a woman who didn’t really love him. In one instance when this man, Phillipo, lost his job, the woman in question left him. They united again when he found a new job. Philippo neglected his wife and kids in favor of these kinds of materialistic based relationships. This man’s nickname, used by people around the neighborhood, was Chopine man or mobali ya Chopine in lingala. It means a man who drinks too much wine. Chopine is the name of his favorite wine. The title ‘Colonisation’ implies that Philipo is not in control of himself; he is governed by these younger women.
