FABASI - D.O.L. (Ducks of London) (1989)

Black Talent/EMI, BTMR(O)038   
Producers:  Jonjo & Mlungisi   
Engineer: Great Duiker       

Tough, pre-kwaito pop that draws heavily on Brenda and Chicco from the same period. According to the Soweto-born singer, "My aim is to write good songs. I want people to know that I enjoy myself when I perform and I sing because I enjoy it, not out of vanity. I sometimes just like opening my mouth and yelling! I further like keeping in shape because looking good is part of my performance." Featuring killer synth work from Peter "Chilly Tshabalala", also of CO Connexion.
