As part of Umoja in the mid-80s, Donovan Knox went to the US with Om Alec Khaoli to record and soon had some international success with 'UR The One'. Knox later played in Image, whose members included Don Laka and Sello 'Chicco' Twala. This solo album is classic new school, ranging from R&B to kwaito and house, along the lines of more successful contemporaries MarcAlex.
