Once you got three, I think it's time to contact an active mod fluent with languages of the same group.

Looks like the language was added. By the way, do you know if Sona Jobarteh only sings in Mandinka or in some other language(s) as well? I'm asking because there are two transcription requests currently marked as unknown: https://lyricstranslate.com/en/sona-jobarteh-lyrics.html

Thanks Fary!
That's a good question. I think she only sings in Mandinka, but I am not 100% sure.
