Zangalewa è una canzone popolare del Camerun, chiamata a volte anche Zamina mina. È stata resa popolare dal gruppo Golden Sounds nel 1986 che ha avuto un tale successo con questa canzone da cambiare il suo nome in Zangalewa.

La canzone è diventata famosa per la ripresa del ritornello da parte di Shakira che l'ha utilizzata per la sua "Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)", inno dei Mondiali di calcio 2010 in Sud Africa (tra l'altro utilizzare il ritornello di una canzone Camerunense in lingua Fang per i Mondiali SudAfricani è come scegliere una canzone islandese per i mondiali in Grecia).
waka waka

La canzone è il lamento di un soldato sottoposto ai rigori della vita militare, la canzone divenne famosa durante la seconda guerra mondiale. Questa canzone è interpretata in lingua Fang, diffusa in Gabon, nel sud del Camerun, nella Guinea Equatoriale, e più ad est nell'Africa Centrale. Spesso è cantata senza che se ne comprenda il significato. Za engalomwa in lingua Fang significa "Chi ti ha mandato?": ed è la domanda che un militare fa ad un altro camerunese di origine straniera. Il termine Zangalewa può provenire anche da un'espressione ewondo: za anga loe wa? o "chi vi ha chiamato?" Il Camerun è un paese multietnico e multilingue, non tutti i soldati potevano parlare ewondo. Inoltre con il tempo, za anga loe wa divenne Zangalewa come la sentiamo ora. Quando le giovani reclute della Guardia Repubblicana del Camerun lamentano i rigori della vita militare, i loro leader ed i loro coetanei di età superiore pongono loro questa domanda: za anga loe wa? Che si può intendere come "nessuno ti ha costretto ad entrare nell'esercito, non ti lamentare più!"

(1) [Edjibe is a general-purpose exclamation]

(2) [Gary is dry cassava that can be eaten with sugar and peanuts or milk]

(3) [Members of the band]

(4) [in Douala]

(5) [Massa ngale is a strict instructor who does not fool around]

(6) pote pote = army food

(7) [In the morning people eat flour corn mixed with hot water and sugar along with donuts. Beans are known as “jazz” in Cameroon, so “begnet jazzer” is donuts with beans. But sometimes the mamy dadas (women who sell food around the barracks) stretch out the beans with flour to make more money.]

(8) [donut mixed with cassava leaf]

(9) [Mewondo sang these lines on the original recording. He was not present for the recording of the video, so his lines were “covered” by Jean-Paul on it. Mewondo Mathurin passed away many years ago.]

(10) [Soldiers who enlist together refer to one another as “classe.” So this means, roughly, “Class, how are you doing? We will meet in the market place of the barracks (soum soum).”]

(11) [During grueling training an officer might shout “Moral!” at a slacking recruit. The soldier must respond “Haut!” This doubles as a check of the recruit’s mental fitness.]

WAKA WAKA (THIS TIME FOR AFRICA)

You're a good soldier
Choosing your battles
Pick yourself up and dust yourself off and back in the saddle
You're on the front line
Everyone's watching
You know it's serious we're getting closer, this isn't over
The pressure is on
You feel it
But you've got it all
Believe it
When you get down oh oh
And if you get up eh eh
Tsamina mina zangalewa
'Cause this is Africa
Tsamina mina eh eh
Waka waka eh eh
Tsamina mina zangalewa
This time for Africa
Listen to your God
This is our motto
Your time to shine don't wait in line y vamos por todo
People are raising
Their expectations
Go on and feed them this is your moment no hesitations
Today's your day
I feel it
You paved the way
Believe it
If you get down get up oh oh
When you get down get up eh eh
Tsamina mina zangalewa
This time…
