For those of you heading out this Saturday night, here is some 1990s disco from the late Queen of South African pop, Brenda Fassie, to get you in the mood.

As disco divas go Brenda was the real deal - as her obituary shows - not like the fabricated ones we get fobbed off with today. Brenda could have had Lady Gaga for breakfast, in every sense of the phrase.

"Kuyoze Kuyovalwa" - Brenda Fassie (1994)

"Vulindlela" - Brenda Fassie (1998)

Brenda first hit the big time fronting an outfit called Brenda & The Big Dudes. Here are some more big dudes. Look out for Bruce Johnston's expression at 3:40.
