Lettre a Monsieur Le Directeur by Luambo Makiadi Franco and Tabu Ley Rochereau is about?
Lettre a Monsieur Le Directeur was released in Kinshasa.
It is a song that Franco made after reestablishing his friendship with Mobutu.
Franco faced so many ligal issues while he was alive.
Ya Biso Candidat was released while Franco was away in Brazzaville. He was running away from Mobutu. Mobutu wanted to arrest him.
Mobutu loved Ya Biso Candidat so much and Franco returned home from Brazzaville. He recorded Lettre a Monsieur Le Directeur with Tabu Ley Rochereau.
This song was a way for Franco to divert attention from him
to other people, to general managers.
Translation of some extracts:
Ozalaka kaka moto DG
(You are just a human being)
Entourage esalaka mabe, po nini oh
(Why is your surrounding doing wrong?)
Entourage ya DG kaka ekolo na ye;
(Everyone around General Managers is from his tribes)
In this song, Franco told Mobutu how directors were mislead by only
trusting people from their own tribes.
