Producers: Sello 'Chicco' Twala & Attie van Wyk
Engineer: Adrian Hamilton
Recorded at: Sweet 16
"Sello Chicco Twala formed a female trio. On his We Miss You Manelo album one of the tracks, 'Rachimo', seems to have inspired the trio's name - Chimora. The group's members were Tiny Mbuli, Makie Motlaung and the late Tshidi Wildeman. Sometimes they were referred to as 'The Chicco Girls'. On an album simply titled Chimora the duo of Nomuntu Kappa and Mohapi Mashego fronted the trio. Besides Some More My Cherry the album also featured Daddy's Dead and Bad Boys. They featured Nomuntu Kappa on Being Bitchy Is My Kind Of Fun." (Mojapelo 2008:119)
Chimora's other albums include Mayibuye iAfrika, Intendane and Abafazi Abalile. They had hits such as 'Munwe Na Munwe', 'Romano', 'Ngangilambile', 'Africano Americano' and 'Eli Eli' . . .
