A native of Cameroon, Dibango has enjoyed a long career as a musician and songwriter, developing a fusion of jazz and African musical styles. This song, which came early in his career, was introduced to American listeners by legendary New York City radio DJ Frankie Crocker.This song made the US Top 40 only briefly, but later became notable for two reasons. First is the refrain, "Ma-ma-se, ma-ma-sa, ma-ma-kossa," which Michael Jackson borrowed for his 1983 hit "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'," but without Dibango's permission. Dibango eventually reached an out-of-court settlement with Jackson over the lyrics.Its second claim to fame is the pop culture phenomenon the song set in motion. "Soul Makossa" was so popular as a dance song that its style began to be emulated and further developed by American dance musicians and eventually took on a life of its own. Some consider it the first disco record. So that’s the meaning and facts about this song From songfacts.com
