Sticking with the downtempo tunes, here is one that I found on one of the better “chillout” compilations Punta del Est Sunset.
Brenda Fassie was famously described as “the Madonna of the townships” by Time Magazine, although I don’t think Madonna even at the height of her success had the fanatical following that Fassie achieved . She was outspoken, controversial and had repeated visits to drug rehab during her short life (sound familiar?). She died on 9th May 2004 after 2 weeks in a coma brought on by a cocaine overdose.
I have no idea what the title means or the lyrics to the track are and it doesn’t really matter.
