Rest in peace, Mama Africa.
Lived in South Africa for a couple of years before things changed for the better politically. Got to love African music.
The year after we got back, I remember Miriam (and it IS pronounced "Makayba") singing the "click" song for Terry Wogan on his chat show - wonderful. What a lovely warm lady!
