CISCO THE CHAMP - Victory (1989)

Gally GRC, HUL40181   
Producers: Jabu Sibumbe & Lee Short   
Engineers: L. Short, P. Pearlson, D Heilbrunn, F Grosso, Sim Wingate


After cutting his teeth as a backing singer, Cisco Mokoena dropped this solo album with the help of heavyweights like Don Laka, synthmaster Felani Gumbi, Kenny Mathaba (Malopoets) and Stimela's Jabu Sibumbe, Thapelo Khomo and Isaac 'Mnca' Mtshali. The boxing-themed Victory serves up vintage bubblegum grooves ('Stay Awake', 'Come Duze' and 'Fire') as well as sweet Bobby Brown-styled R&B soul on 'Love Heroes' and best track 'It's Raining In My Heart'.
