SISTER COOL - Ma Afrika (1989)

Cool Spot, SPOT(V)006    
Producers: Monwa Yekani & Mally Watson (exec: Ken Haycock)
Engineer: Mally Watson
Recorded at: Cool Spot


Cool Spot was set up in the late 80s and quickly became home to important acts like Jambo, Monwa & Sun and MM Deluxe. Monwa Yekani emerged as a talented  songwriter and producer, and so assumed control of the label's girl group, made up of Khanyisile Sibiya, China Monyane and Shashi Motumo. Full of warm synths and fat pantsula beats, the trio gave others like Syndicate Sisters and the Dalom Kids a run for their money.
