"Madonna of the Townships"

Brenda Fassie was a famous South African pop star who sang about life in the townships of Johannesburg (and who succumbed to addiction at an early age). This sculpture of her can be found in Newtown, which is dotted with jazz clubs and street musicians. Sit on the stool next to Brenda and share the mic.
