- A local lady is setting the internet alight as a video of her singing as gone viral this week
- The woman is heard singing Brenda Fassie’s classic hit, “Too late for mamma”
- Social media users were all raving about the rendition and she has indeed been likened to the late musical legend
Has the new Brenda Fassie been discovered via social media?
That seemed to be the case as a new video has taken social media by storm.
The footage shows a group of females singing the Brenda Fassie classic, “Too late for mamma,” but the lead singer’s voice drew all the attention.
Many tweeps agreed the singer’s voice is reminiscent to the late Brenda Fassie.
In an interesting twist, the mystery singer was deemed to be Buhle Mda, lead singer of The Soil.
Ironically, Mda is no stranger to making news headlines either.
A few years ago, the singer took a break from singing to complete sangoma initiation training.
Mda was also accused of physically abusing her ex-boyfriend.
Strangely enough, comparisons were drawn between her and Fassie a few years ago already.
Briefly.co.za noted how viewers were moved by her vocal ability.
Goosebumps seemed to be in high supply.
However, many were frustrated that the video wasn’t a bit longer.
