Mgarimbe, known for the hit song “Sister Bettina,” is a prime example of Mzansi’s one-hit wonders. Although he released a whole album, it’s this one song that still matters today. Unfortunately, his death was just announced a few hours ago.
“Sister Bettina” had lyrics that raised eyebrows, but its message resonated with many. The song’s core message was about enjoying our youth to the fullest. While it gained immense popularity, it faced radio restrictions due to explicit content, leading to a plea for a radio-friendly version. Despite its massive success, Mgarimbe received no awards for this iconic track.
Over the years, Mgarimbe continued to perform “Sister Bettina” at various gigs, maintaining its relevance. He collaborated with Cassper Nyovest on “Gologo no Beer,” but it never matched the impact of his signature song. After the Cassper feature, he disappeared from the music scene, leaving fans wondering about his whereabouts. Like many artists, his path remains unknown, and we hope he is doing well.
