Mandoza and Me

Mandoza and I never met, but his music defined an unforgettably exciting period of my life.

The late nights out – the wild parties – the get-togethers around the fireplace in the backyard of a smallish townhouse; the first date out with a hot new lady; my shy, tentative attempts to dance to kwaito; everything about Mandoza’s Nkalakatha exemplifies the feel-good nature of coming-to-age in the 21st century.

May his music live on.
