    Hi all,

    il faut bara is a Coupe Decale song, and I guess language is Nouchi, so; il faut is French, but does anyone know what is bara?

    Hello Tamar,
    The artist Bebi Philip is from the Republic of Côte d'Ivoire. This French creole, was originally used by young speakers of Sosoxui (Soso or Susu) from Guinea, in the poorer areas of (the former Ivorian capital) Abidjan. So Nouchi isn't so much a language, but a melting pot of words from many dialects, which have been added over the years. Source : wiki.

    You might have more success visiting nouchi(dot)mobi a dictionary/forum of Ivorian slang.
    Since we'd really need to know which language it's actually from to translate it correctly.

    Hi L'irlandias,

    Thank you so much for that link!

    I agree, Finding out which language a word is from in Coupe Decale songs is in fact the problem (I didn't really know what to write in the subject in the beginning....)
    I'll go over the site you gave me :D
