Moïse Mbiye – Bolingo Ya Solo


In Moïse Mbiye’s “Bolingo Ya Solo” (Lingala for “The Love of One”), a captivating melody unfolds, carrying listeners on a journey of profound introspection and a celebration of the transformative power of unconditional love. More than just a love song, it becomes a philosophical exploration of self-discovery, acceptance, and the enduring power of connection, reminding us that true fulfillment lies in embracing our authentic selves and finding love within.

The song opens with a gentle exploration of self: “Ndeko nazali solo na ngai” (Lingala for “Brother, I am alone with myself”). Sung with a thoughtful introspection, these opening lines set the stage for a song that delves into the complexities of self-discovery and acceptance. The music mirrors this sentiment, with a sparse, yet introspective melody and delicate instrumentation, creating a sense of intimacy and vulnerability.

As the song progresses, the lyrics delve deeper into the search for inner peace and acceptance. Lines like “Boye nakosepela na Nzambe” (Lingala for “That’s why I cry out to God”) and “Nakozala na bolingo ya solo” (Lingala for “I will remain in self-love”) express the yearning for connection with a higher power and the importance of self-acceptance in the journey towards wholeness. The music incorporates elements of traditional spiritual chants, creating a sense of reverence and seeking solace in a higher purpose.
