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)
