Ofela by Madilu System is about what?
What is the song Ofela by Madilu System about?
The song Ofela tells the story of a man
who was travelling to Europe because, career-wise,
he didn’t succeed by being in Kinshasa.
He wanted to try in a different land.
He was so broke to the point where the family of the
women that he was dating refused to allow him to marry
their daughter, Ofela.
He regrets that he wasted Ofela’s opportunities to marry
wealthier people. He promised to Ofela that they did not
break up. It is the misery that forced them to separate.
