For some reason country music has long enjoyed a following in Southern African, both American and local - particularly in the Afrikaans market. Musa "Buddy" Masango grew up in Bulandzeni in Swaziland, raised on gospel and the Soul Brothers. After school he fashioned himself as a country singer and performed at annual Swaziland International Trade Fairs, where SA sound engineers took him to Joburg to record.
Jonathan Butler's example. Besides making a name for himself as a country singer, he is also a notable prosecutor in Swaziland. Read a 2009 interview with him here.
Just because he's one of kind doesn't make the songs special, even as far as country goes. Buddy treads a fine line between serious performer and novelty act in a genre full of imported cliches - like on 'Where Do I Go From Here':
"Where do you go from here?
I don't like complaining but I could use a rest -
but my sofa and chair just got repossessed."
