Today would have been Mam’ Miriam Makeba’s 89th birthday. The singer, songwriter wore multiple hats and is remembered for her work as a United Nations goodwill ambassador and civil rights activist.
Her music lives on years after her passing and some of the more memorable songs include:
- Pata Pata
- The “click” song a.k.a Qongqothwane
- A Luta Continua
- The Retreat Song
- And last but not least Mas Que Nada
Of course there are many more songs from Mam’ but these were top of mind when we asked our Tweeple to vote for the Midday Joy #YouCannotUnhearThis track.
To celebrate Mam’ uMiriam Makeba’s birthday, the #YouCannotUnhearThis song today is “Mas que nada”.
Should Unathi play the song in full on #KayaMiddayJoy?
