Rwandan singer and “Byakubaho” mastermind Amalon picked an old country song, retouched it and made it his own in the track you now know as “Derila,” featuring Ally Soundy.
It is apparent Amalon knew what he was doing. The song has been received with near rapture in Rwanda and is currently enjoying generous airplay. The rapture is going to extend to other African countries as well – just about anywhere the song goes.
“Derila” has got some love undertones. But then the meaning it eventually registers in your mind may be different. That’s fine, by the way.
I am having “Derila” fever right now. I invite you to catch the same fever. This one takes you not to the hospital but to the dance floor and ultimately into the arms of love, assuming there is no love already.
Amalon may not be famous in other African countries, but he is well on his way. Soon enough all Africa will roll out the drums for him. Soon enough. Watch this artiste. Do, while “Derila” of course.
