item Article : mapeka or masasamba ?
we say mapeka solo or solo ya mapeka

to say "stinking armpits" or "the odor of the armpits", although...

mapeka = shoulders and armpits = masasamba

so why not say masasamba ya solo or solo ya masasamba ?

in fact, originally we said : solo ya nse ya mapeka (the smell from under the shoulders),
but since lingala speakers love to abbreviate, it became

solo ya mapeka
