The flash mob I wish I could see

I wish I was shopping in Parkview's Woollies at this moment!
(our Woolworths is more or less like Marks & Spencer)

Would have bawled like a baby.

Here's the lyrics and translation, the song is Asimbonanga by Johnny Clegg:


  1. Saw this this morning and it made me cry. We grew up with this song in our house. Dad was a big Johnny Clegg fan. I must confess, I never really knew the words until recently. So beautiful. There is a clip of Johnny singing this at a concert.....and then from the back of the stage comes Madiba.....dancing his dance. And then Madiba says he spotted people at the back not dancing, and asked Johnny to sing it again. Priceless.

  2. I'm so moved and I have goose bumps!
    Thank you for sharing this beauty Stel, thank you so much!!!
    xxxxxxx Ale

  3. This made me shed a tear, thank you for sharing I miss home x
