Golden Oldies- Brenda Fasie’s Legacy is still with us!!!!

Brenda Nokuzola Fassie (1964 – 2004) was a South African anti-apartheid Afropop singer whose music has taken the world by storm.  The singer was affectionately known as MaBrrr by her fans, she was sometimes sometimes described as the “Queen of African Pop” or the “Madonna of The Townships” or simply as The Black Madonna. Her bold stage antics earned a reputation for “outrageousness”.
Below is the lyrics of her hit song, “Weekend Special”
[Verse 1]
You don’t come around, to me see in the week
You don’t have a chance, to call me on the phone
You don’t come around, to me see in the week
You don’t have a chance, to call me on the phone[Pre-Chorus]
But friday night, yes I know
I know I must be ready for you, just be waiting for you
Friday night, yes I know
I know I must be ready for you, just be waiting for you[Chorus]
I’m no weekend, weekend special
I’m no weekend, weekend special
I’m no weekend, weekend special
I’m no weekend, weekend special
I’m no weekend, weekend special (daddy’s home)
I’m no weekend (daddy’s home)[Verse 2]
Another lonely night, on my own again
How along for your love
I need your touch, yes I do
You don’t come around, to me see in the week
You don’t have a chance, to call me on the phone

But friday night, yes I know
I know I must be ready for you, just be waiting for you
Friday night, yes I know
I know I must be ready for you, just be waiting for you

[Bridge]
I’m your weekend special…
I’m your weekend special…
I’m no weekend special…
That is all…

[Chorus]
I’m no weekend, weekend special
I’m no weekend, weekend special
I’m no weekend, weekend special
I’m no weekend, weekend special
I’m no weekend, weekend special (daddy’s home)
I’m no weekend (daddy’s home)

  1. I think the late Brenda Fassie’s music is still rocking eventhough it was produced in the 90’s. What a quality of music she sang!!!

  2. wow, what a music. Only those born prior the 80″s will know this kind of music. Comparatively it is still a good sound to listen than the junk that we hear on our radios. Quality music of all times!!!
