I really liked her then. So energetic in her videos and performances on stage.

I bought almost all her albums in the early 2000 and was always blasting it in the office.

My favorite of her songs are
Wedding day
Mi do do do la do ti
Tender care
And her hit song in yr 2000. Vulindulela. In fact, I love all her songs. Including the one she did with magic system " Matilsso".

Her death shook the world because she had fans all over.
Is there a link I can download some of her songs? I have searched online but to no avail

Who introduced Whitney Houston to drugs?

Even Tina Turner would have ended up dead if she didn’t run away from her violent drug-headed husband.

In as much as the OP used her story to shed light on the influence of negative addictions, Can we all pause and think about where her soul is now? There is only one place she could be, either HELL or HEAVEN.
What about you reading this right now? Where will you be after you leave this world?
The Bible says, "It is appointed unto a man once to die, and after this the judgment"...
It is high time you give your life to the Lord Jesus Christ... If not for anything else, for to escape to escape the judgment of God coming upon this Earth, and to see God on the last day. God bless you.

Ohh wow.... You totally knew her .. this is the first time i'm hearing her name.... Same way Whitney Houston lost it too....

Her most famous song is Vulindlela.

I have had that song with me for years.

Her hero was Mandela. After she met Mandela, she said the next thing left to see are angels.

What a powerful vocalist she was.

The fear of death made me stop some of my bad habits. While some people find it difficult to stop even at the point of dying, only God's grace can save an addict.

you see your predicament is unique and the IQ of a mouse is that high to understand its body system that it’s heart shuts down when calories are as low as 30% and voraciously search for food , you as a human beats my imagination when a statement isn’t meant for you , hence your IQ is as low as that of an amoeba , learn to stay away from discussions that require matured minds , your slow poke father should have told you better .

Yeah I do. I watched her "mi do do" song a lot as a child. I grew up and continued buying her albums.

Her addiction ( according to reports then ) was as a result of her baby daddy whom she loved so much but got dumped by him.

Who wouldnt like Brenda? She was a great artist..

I knew whitney in my sec school days. I think Brenda died before her or so.

Whitney's daughter too died of the same drugs. Don't know what has become of her adopted son now. This life though.
Wait oo, I didn't even recognise it is the same Brenda I blast her music till now. I didn't know she is dead. What a highly talented artist

Interesting15:
Hello guys. So I was working on a project recently, and came across the heartbreaking story of a dead South African celebrity known as Brenda Fassie. I decided to write this to discourage more people out there to do away with bad addictions.

So, Brenda was quite talented as a singer and songwriter, and her talents helped her to the top of her career. Unfortunately, she became addicted to drugs. It was so bad that a report stated that she blew away more than R10-million, courtesy of her addictions. At some point, she had to write off six of her cars, including a Mitsubishi Pajero worth R300,000 and R280,000. The Pajero was believed to have been taken by drug lords, and it disappeared without trace.

It was also revealed that she made attempts to stop her drug habit, and she checked in at rehabilitation centers 30 times, spending up to R300 000. Unfortunately, she died in April 2004, and the post-mortem report revealed that she had taken an overdose of cocaine the previous day before she gave us the ghost. Her addictions damaged her completely.

Just imagine the very first time she tasted cocaine. She would probably have been excited, thinking she just found a new adventure that's pleasurable. Only if she knew that was the beginning of her slavery to what will kill her...

Some of you reading this right now might be addicted to something dangerous too. It might be alcoholism, smoking, prostitution, masturbation, stealing, porn, clubbing, gambling, womanizing, etc. Listen, you have to make a decision to stop, hence it will damage you one day.

I know some of you have been trying to stop doing those dangerous things you are addicted to, but it seems you just can't help yourself. Well, truly, you can't help yourself. That's why I will recommend that you give God the wheel of your life to enable Him help you

How? By getting closer to Him in an intimate relationship. How? By embracing Jesus as LORD and Saviour, and deciding to live according to His dictates. Indeed, JESUS won't fail you.

For those of you that just started doing something bad, you better stop immediately, before you get addicted to it. It might appear as if you are having fun (you might even think you can always control it), but in the blink of an eye, it becomes an addiction, and turned you into its slave - making you a miserable person before finally destroying you.

If you want to get addicted to anything, thenget addicted to good things that will help you. Get addicted to the things of God (studying the Bible, praying, etc). Get addicted to learning good and productive things.

Finally, to anyone still under the yoke of a brutal addiction, you are free in Jesus Name Amen

She actually killed herself unconsciously, I think good conscience left her or what I call spirt of God or even grace of God, she was looking for happiness in hard drugs, got addicted and died a painful young death, the price you pay for being famous and not properly guided by God's grace
