DRUM - - Ed's Note -

I was very dis­ap­pointed to learn the bat­tle over Brenda Fassie’s legacy is far from over (The bat­tle for Brenda, 1 Fe­bru­ary). MaBrrr was the big­gest thing to hap­pen to our en­ter­tain­ment in­dus­try. She de­serves to be com­mem­o­rated with re­spect.

A well-re­searched film about her life could be a big hit, and I feel strongly that a book must be writ­ten about MaBrrr’s life too. There must be many ex­cit­ing sto­ries to be shared about her life. Chicco Twala and Bon­gani Fassie were the two peo­ple clos­est to Brenda when she was alive. These guys must swal­low their pride and work to­gether to make their shared dream a re­al­ity. They must stop be­ing self­ish and fo­cus on why Brenda’s life story needs to be told. Her fans are wait­ing. SP MOF­FAT, EMAIL
