Brenda Fassie - "The Madonna of the townships"

I can't quite remember if it was through our Dad or Channel O or was it Rock Down Africa (RDA) on MNet that my sister and I got acquainted with Brenda Fassie, but we were immediately hooked!!! Even though we didn't understand the lyrics  in some of her songs ("Nomakanjani", "Matsidiso", for eg.) we understood her energy, her smile and that twinkle in her eye which she never lost.

You left us too soon, Brenda. all the same, "Ngiyakuthanda"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
