This song has a long history, most of the history is in my head.
My friend Moses — the same Moses who got into a bar fight years ago — asked me to find him an American wife. Moses had some mental health problems which led his wife to move out. For some reason he believed that an American woman would be more faithful.
I kept this song in my head as a very inside joke. But in 2008, another friend from Cameroon, Gregory — the same Gregory with the frozen fish store — came to attend my wedding. I told him about the song idea. He liked it, and helped me tweak the lyrics into better Kamtok (a.k.a. Cameroonian Pidgin English).
I never recorded it until now. I thought I’d try it on my Madagascan kabosy.
Since Moses was a musician; a saxophonist, among other things, I added this sax solo from a website called Looperman.
In case you can’t make out the lyrics, in the song, I do find Moses a faithful American woman — an inflatable sex doll.
