Misima cover

Misima cover steals hearts

Dion Kombeng and Jimmy Segodi have stolen the hearts of many with their Despacito cover, sung in the Misima language of Milne Bay Province.


Nimau Ulibikan ge tana ta saga

Bugul gegewena ta nuhayoho

Nimam ulatahin ge tayaliyaya

Kombeng, from a mixed parentage of New Ireland, Morobe and Central, says it was a random idea to try sing despacito in a PNG language. So Segodi tried putting the Misima language to it.

“It just worked…and yeah that's how it came out,” Kombeng said.
