Remembering Brenda Fassie, short and often unhappy life.

Cheated of millions of rands by her promoters, infected HIV by her partner and introduced to hard drugs by friends, Brenda saw it all before dying at a tender age of 40 years. Eventually SA has honored her with a life size sculpture at the heart of Johannesburg.

Her bold stage antics earned a reputation for “outrageousness” ironically, her Xhosa middle name, Nokuzola, means “quiet”, “calm”, or “peace”.

bado kalikuwa ka lele

I also liked her, alot.

Sketch ya Brenda

Kwani ulizaliwa 2002 elder?

Kenya ni politicians tu huwa honored with statues.


Boss toa kichwa yako kwa anus ya mongoose. Who doesn’t know Brenda … just Google Brenda south Africa musician !


I attended her show at Mamba Disco, and got an her Original CD.
When she was hospitalized I really prayed for a miracle.
I was crushed when Beatrice Marshall, then at KTN announced her death on a Sunday, 9Oclock news. I have never forgotten
Brenda was way before her time, musically
This one I miss

Eh :oops:
The post-mortem report revealed that Fassie had taken an overdose of cocaine on the night of her collapse, and this was the cause of her coma. She stopped breathing and suffered brain damage from lack of oxygen.

They are the only ones who make a lifelong fame and ‘impact’. Other achievers don’t view themselves as brands, and their names fizzle out from memory as soon as the limelight is off them.

An amazing Lady full of talent and energy …
