    George Sibanda is such a legend that no photo of him is known to exist and nobody knows exactly when he died - but we know he had drunk himself to death. An exceptional own style of guitar-picking, coupled with his generous voice and happy-go-lucky songs, made him into a big star.

about

Singer/songwriter/guitarist George Sibanda from Bulawayo was in effect sub-Saharan Africa's first music star. Discovered by Hugh Tracey in 1948, he became a big radio hit in Zimbabwe, Zambia, South Africa, Malawi, and Kenya. Later his song 'Guabi Guabi' was covered by several folk artists in the USA. Alas he could not cope with fame and fortune and had drunk himself to death by the end of the 50s.
