    I came to the United States from Mexico back in February of 1980 at the age of 17, this song was released in April or June of 1986 in both Cameroon and in Parts of Europe. It made it's way to Latin America through a Merengue/Salsa musical band from the Dominican Republic in 1988 with Las Chicas del Can. The song reached number 4 or 5 in Mexico. It was considered a "One Hit wonder" afterwards after its peak time (after 1988-89) I mean. I got to say I HATE THE DAMN Shakira VERSION.

    i didn't know it was a military song... i grew up listening to the ''el negro no puede'' and the ''trafassi'' versions.

    Page updated to reflect that Las Chicas Del Can interpolated Golden Sounds. Apparently Zamina Mina (Zangalewa) is a Cameroonian military song that was first popularised by Golden Sounds in 1985. This page gives detailed information as to the origins of this song: http://blog.wfmu.org/freeform/2010/03/waka-waka-hey-hey.html
