Anyone who has stepped into a Salsa club in the last few years has probably heard Africando's version of the song "Yay Boy" (sometimes spelled "Yaye Boy"). It has an awesome beat for dancing, but I've never known what it's about. Does anybody know? I think the lyrics are in Senegalese -- and I don't know anybody from Senegal who could help me translate them into English. I'm usually pretty good with Google, but I couldn't find any English translation on Google, either. I was amazed about that, since the song is so tremendously popular. I thought about this because I was talking to a friend at a club on Tuesday night who claimed to know what the song was about. He says that someone from Senegal told him it's about a African boy captured into slavery and calling for his mother. Pretty fascinating, if that's true! I'd like to verify the meaning of the song myself, though. Does anybody out there have some knowledge of what the lyrics mean? Thanks for whatever help you can provide!
