SIPHO 'HOTSTIX' MABUSE
Every week we ask an SA music celeb to tell us which are their favourite SA
songs. This week we are celebrating 10 years of freedom and democracy in
South Africa and so we invited one of South Africa's most adored pop stars
to give us his list.
If 'Nkalakatha' is the song that best represents the 10 years of freedom in
SA, then 'Burnout' was the foundation. The song was written by Sipho Mabuse
in 1985 after he split from Harari, and was the first major crossover hit
in South Africa. Black, white, green, and blue all loved the song and it
went on to sell over 500 000 units, and continues to sell today.
Sipho still gigs regularly, as well as being the owner of Kippies at the
Market Theatre in Johannesburg. So please enjoy the Top SA songs as
submitted by of one of South Africa's musical icons.
Sipho submitted 12 songs:
