MARGARET SINGANA - Oh My My / Alright Now (Bellaphon, Penny FarthingBF 18236) Germany 1974 PS 45
vinyl: VG+ (strong) | cover: VG++
Margaret Singana, the world-renowned South African singing star, passed away on Saturday 22 April 2000 (aged 63). Although she enjoyed her greatest success during the 1970's, she made a triumphant comeback following a debilitating stroke in 1978. In 1986 Margaret Singana returned to the microphone to sing 'We Are Growing', the theme song from the television series 'Shaka Zulu' which went to number 1 in The Netherlands in 1989. But that was to be her final bow and she died largely forgotten, and in a financial situation unbefitting a star appropriately and affectionately dubbed 'Lady Africa'.
