This is the befitting title of the book written by Sydney Fetsie Maluleke, a young man from Giyani in Limpopo Province of South Africa. He is currently based in Johannesburg where is working as an educator. Sydney grew up in a home of music. His father John Maluleke has been a great fan of Soul Brother for over 40 years. He has followed the group since its inception in 1976 up to this day.
Hugh Masekela who passed on Jan 23, 2018 is an integral part of South African modern history, being part of the resistance against 'apartheid' oppression, the social issues he addressed in his music, as well as being a larger-than-life figure. 'Stimela' is the track that Hugh Masekela will probably be best remembered for as it encompasses all of his work both lyrically and musically. Such is the significance of 'Stimela' as it addresses the theme of hope against a backdrop of social injustice, central to South African modern history, a history still marked by decades of 'apartheid'.
