Back in 1989, My parents were sent a cassette from some relatives in Ghana and we were all hooked.  After watching the 21 icons video, I couldn’t help but do a youtube search for ‘Umqombothi’ and ‘Thank you Mr DJ’. I have some great memories of lip-syncing to these tracks as a child.  On watching her beautiful feature with filmmaker and photographer Adrian Steirn, I learnt that her music was never played on mainstream radios stations and she is in fact South African.
