The
 
Background
 
Africa
 
was
 
once
 
occupied
 
by
 
Europeans.
 
Côte
 
d'Ivoire,
 
where
 
the
 
singer
 
originally
 
hails
 
from,
 
is
 
one
 
of 
 
the
 
53
 
countries
 
of 
 
Africa.
 
It
 
is
 
also
 
known
 
as
 
Ivory
 
Coast.

Africa
Part
 
I
 
with
 
an

map
 
of 
 
African
 
countries
 
for
 
more
 
details.)
 
According
 
to
 
historians,
 
the
 
earliest
 
recorded
 
French
 
voyage
 
to
 
West
 
Africa
 
took
 
place
 
in
 
1483.
 
European
 
slave
 
and
 
merchant
 
ships
 
started
 
roaming
 
the
 
continent.
 
An
 
1843–1844
 
treaty
 
made
 
Côte
 
d'Ivoire
 
a
 
protectorate
 
of 
 
France.
 
Eventually,
 
in
 
1893,
 
Côte
 
d'Ivoire
 
became
 
a
 
French
 
colony.
 
Due
 
to
 
European
 
invasion,
 
it
 
suffered
 
exploitation
 
and
 
slave
 
trade.
 
Côte
 
d'Ivoire
 
became
 
independent
 
on
 
7
 
August
 
1960.
 
However,
 
the
 
misery
 
seems
 
to
 
continue,
 
cries
 
the
 
inspirational
 
singer
 
Fely
 
Tchaco.
 
Note
 
:
 
A
 
protectorate
 
is
 
a
 
country
 
or
 
an
 
area
 
which
 
maintains
 
a
 
relationship
 
with
 
a
 
strong
 
sovereign
 
nation.
 
Once
 
a
 
strong
 
nation
 
has
 
established
 
a
 
protectorate
 
over
 
a
 
weak
 
nation,
 
it
 
can
 
control
 
the
 
latter's
 
affairs.)
 
 
 
 
This
 
article
 
contains
 
the
 
original
 
lyrics
 
and
 
the
 
English

melodious
 
African

‘Afrique
 
Bou

Tchaco

Cote
 
d’ivoirean
 
singer.
 
The
 
song
 
was
 
originally
