    I fux with this
    "Giving up is hard to do
    When you really love someone
    Giving up .... so hard to do
    When you still depend upon
    Her warm and tender touch
    Her kiss and her hug..........her caress
    Oooooh that used to mean so much
    And bring you happiness"

    This song is just ok. As far as taking soca to Africa, the music reached the motherland decades ago. And South African music has very little in common with Caribbean music. A more natural collaboration would have been with West or Central African musicians. BTW, I've always disliked the music of Ladysmith Black Mambazo.

    From my collection, Kitch's collaboration with Little Joe Ayesu of Ghana.

    At one time, it was extremely fashionable to record with the South African vocal group. Here's Brazil's Maria Bethania with them from a disc from the 1990's.



    Rudder did his own South African influenced record back in the day. Of course he used real musicians and percussion.

    This thread is about Kerwin & Machel's new track called "Possessed" with Ladysmith Black Mambazo.

    No one here cares if you always disliked that SA group or if you believe it is a natural collaboration or not!

    Soca artists are free to be as creative as they wish and to do whatever collaborations they want. Music is music and almost everyone loves this song so it is a great collaboration.

    Why don't you stop trying to be a sourpuss for just one minute Seawall as it may help you to enjoy your visits to SocaChat if you really have to keep visiting?

    Wait...is this your site or something? Do me a favor and put me on your ignore list. As i said, the song is ok, not some revelatory experience. Well, maybe it is for those who don't listen to anything but jump up soca. Machel's been feeding the masses tata for so long that the rare moments that he releases a decent song, people think it's an instant classic. I have most of the man's albums on my hard drive, and can compile a wicked mixtape from them, however, I realized long ago that he was just rehashing the same formula. He's one of the best live performers in soca, but his recordings have been going the Iwer route for some time.

    After I made my first comment, I remembered that the Jamaican American kaisonian made some records with Makeba.

    As soon as you can remove my posts from regularly being your main focus of attention in most threads then I MAY put you on Ignore.
    Until then I will continue pointing out that you are a music sourpuss because you really are one and if you can't handle that then maybe the solution would be for YOU to put me on Ignore as I will never do you any favours and you know that.

    Now back to the topic at hand, Possessed! I had to pull it up 5 times on my radio show today and the Afrobeats DJ's who followed my radio show were demanding that they get a copy.
    Looks likes the track is destined to be a hit here in London with both the Caribbean and African audience/ravers. BIG TUNE!!
