Not many people had the privilege of working with the legendary Brenda Fassie.
That's why Arthur Mafokate counts it as a blessing to have been a part of the late musician's life. He took us down memory lane after sharing a picture of Mabrrr's platinum plaque for Umuntu Uyathsintsha, which he produced.
This was followed by a long message of how the platinum-selling album came about.
#UmuntuUyashintsha - powerful message. This is one album that sold big, and it happened when people were trying to write off SA's Queen Of Pop #BrendaFassie (who at the time was going through a lot in her life). As someone she raised, (if we all remember that I used to carry her bags around, danced for her, followed her at clubs and even stayed at her house). Few years later she visited me for only 1 and a half hours. And guess what I did with those few hours. I quickly recorded a platinum seller (Platinum then was 50 000 copies, now 20 000 copies) and as they say, things started getting back to order #Motivation #Inspiration #UntoldSAMusicStories #SAMusicHistory #MissYouBrendaFassie #LoveYouBrendaFassie
Wow! What an inspiring story. Brenda not only had a beautiful voice, but she also had a beautiful heart. Thanks for sharing, Arthur.
