Pelile Makoti (My love for you, Makoti, is finished)
Citaumvano, a Mpondo guitarist of the Lusikisiki District, Cape Province, South Africa, composed this song. His wife is Makoti. From what he says, he is devoted to her, and their song is not to be taken literally. His capo (a movable bar attached to the fingerboard to raise the pitch of the strings) is placed on the fifth fret of the guitar.
