70-80,s disco beat strong female voice afro?

i managed to record the last bar of the record. no titles or names were mentioned on the radio. typical. its an old disco type record. its slightly corny but has a oldie appeal. i think it has kettle drums in the background.

the lyrics are african? i have tried to translate the words i can work out using a nigerian translator with best results.

goes something like this. song lyrics : tu so ja ke lidi ti na bo koko be ti. my translation was : Sosa kali be released will have to be subject of ?? there are backing singers filling in : ha ley ley ha leh leh. its a solid beat not slow or fast 120bpm? dont remenber guitars but mostly drums. theres no chanting either.

im sure i remember it from ages ago. 70-80,s??? its very poppy. i do have a short sound clip. ive tried searching using the words but got a dead end. i dont think it was a top ten hit .. but it must have been played on the radio in the past.

Aie a Mwana - is the title apparently .. first recorded 1971 .. but was also covered by bananarama & others. it just sounded so familiar.
