Born in Inanda, Natal on October 28, 1947, South African Busi Mhlongo was a virtuoso singer, dancer and composer whose music defied categorisation.

Drawing on various South African styles such as mbaqanga, maskanda, marabi and traditional Zulu, fused with contemporary elements from jazz, funk, rock, gospel, rap, opera, reggae and West African music she produced a fresh and exciting sound. Her infectious music and singing style had a universal appeal and her lyrics carried powerful and poignant messages.

Ms. Mhlongo died of breast cancer on June 15, 2010.
