Che Che Koolay

Kye Kye Kule (pronounced “chay chay koolay”) is mostly likely originally from Ghana. We’ve read in a couple of places that this song is from the Ghanian Fanti Tribe. The Fanti Tribe speaks Fanti and Twi.

This song is sung all over the world. I do not know the English translation. There are many different spellings: “Kye Kye Kule”, “Che Che Kule”, “Shay Shay Kooley”, “Che Che Koolay”, “Che che Cole”, etc. (source)

Lyrics

Che che koolay (echo)
Che che kofeesa (echo)
Kofee salanga (echo)
Kaka shee langa (echo)
Whoops ah lay lay (echo)
Whoops ah lay lay – Hey!

  1. This is far from a “nonesense” song and it’s not just rude but very ignorant of you to disrespect our culture as you’ve done! This is a traditional song for us as Ghanaian People.
