Original cast recording from the famous stage musical later turned into a film starring Whoopi Goldberg and much later associated with a long-running fraud controversy. It began as the brainchild of Mbongeni Ngema, whose intention it was to "not only celebrate Mbaqanga music, but also the power of the children".
