YVONNE CHAKA CHAKA - Who's the Boss? (1989

Roy B. / Dust / Teal / Trutone
RBL 152
Producer: Attie van Wyk
Engineer: Richard Mitchell
Recorded at: Powerhouse



Yvonne brought her own style of wholesome lady loveliness to the bubblegum scene, the perfect foil to Ma Brr. On “Who’s The Boss,” she speaks her mind: women's rights are the order of the days: refusing to clean up and cook for her man ( “I’m Not Your Slave"), promising to be faithful ("To The Man I Love"), discussing marriage ("Why Can’t We Live Together..If We Really Love Each Other?”, while still looking at broader political issues ("We Will Survive") and escapist fun ("Turn Up Your Radio"). The album features Stella Khumalo, Lindi Evenson, Tu Nokwe And Felicia Marion. Notes include “Thanks To Herbert ‘Dr Rhythm’ Xulu, Who Came From Zululand To Deliver The Goods” As Rhythm Producer/Arranger.
