“The king of Kwaito music Arthur Mafokate remembers the late Brenda Fassie he says Me and Brenda Fassie in London as I was trying to teach her the Twalatza dance! The Bafana Bafana jersey was the thing . The SA flag was part of everyone’s travel items when travelling overseas, and I dream of such moments to return. As it stands we are our own enemies in sending wrong messages about our country when in fact we have such a beautiful country. How I wish I could do classes about how to protect the Brand of a country. May Brenda Fassie continue to rest in peace ❤️❤️ loved and missed always ❤️”
