AllMusic Review by

Mbango is a very nifty singer in a vein reminiscent of Mbilia Bel, whose backings mix zouk influences and Cameroonian instrumental sound. Mix and match maybe, but a mix that does indeed match. There's nothing blindingly innovative, just warmth, charm, bounce. Toto Guillaume, Joe Mboule, Naimro zouk it to 'em on keyboards. Outrageously short, but that's all too standard in makossa/soukous/zouk.
