“Mgarimbe, the singer behind the hit song “Sister Bettina”, has passed away. He was one of Mzansi’s most famous one-hit wonders. He had a whole album, but only this song became a classic. His death was announced a few hours ago.
“Sister Bettina” had controversial lyrics, but many people related to it. The song was about living life to the fullest while we are young. It was very popular, but some radio stations banned it because of its explicit content. They asked for a clean version of the song. Even though the song was iconic, Mgarimbe never won any awards for it.
Mgarimbe kept performing “Sister Bettina” at different events, keeping it alive. He worked with Cassper Nyovest on “Gologo no Beer”, but it didn’t have the same effect as his original song. After that, he vanished from the music scene, and fans wondered what happened to him. Like many artists, his fate is unknown, and we hope he is okay.”
