We Miss You Mandela!

What can be said? We all knew this day would come. Tonight marks the passing of Nelson Mandela! Many in South Africa will waken shortly to this sad news. I know Chris has prepared a special post for this occasion, but in the wee hours of this morning and until that time enjoy this masked tribute to the iconic leader. Recorded by Sello "Chicco" Twala in 1987 this hit dance song escaped the apartheid censors by referring to a fictional character "Manelow" but it was fully understood who the subject of the song was. As you listen it is hard not to hear the words: "We Miss You Mandela, Where Are You?"
