WILLIAM MTHETHWA and THE FAITH MISSION CHOIR - Satane Tloha Ho Nna (1990)

Midnight Beat, MBT226
Producer: William 'Mr Everything' Mthethwa
Engineer: George Vardis
Recorded at: TRS Studios

Mthethwa made his name as a dynamic frontman during the 1980s. As bubblegum began to fade, 'Mr Everything' ventured into gospel as well as reggae and soccer-themed albums. He also helped launch the career of another Sotho soulman, Sox. Dedicated to Aubrey Bano Moloi of the Young Five, who passed away on New Years day that year, this gospel album ('Satan Leave Me Alone') is full of fresh synths and Mthethwa's powerful vocals.
