LENNY - We Are The Winners (1988)

Genesis/Tusk, GNC1002
Producer: Thomas Masingi (exec: Rev NJ Tshawane)      
Engineer: Jan Smit  
Composed by: Leonard Makhathini 
Recorded at: TAKK Studios, Jhb       


Super funky gospel pop by one Leonard Makhathini, along the lines of the more famous Peta Teanet and Rebecca Malope. With lyrics in English and isiZulu, best tracks include 'He's Ruling My Life' and 'Unguku Thula Kwami', while 'Security' slows it down with the synth-soul ala Monwa & Sun. "May Honour and Glory be to the Almighty God. He has blessed me during my childhood and now He is using me at my teenage years. He owns my giftedness".
