Guyanese-British vocalist and musician, Eddie Grant was the man behind the song that gave hope to South Africans becoming their anti-apartheid anthem. Released in 1988, the song was banned from the country because it became a symbol for blacks in the Rainbow nation. Despite being banned, it was widely played amongst non South Africans.
It chalked huge commercial success and reached number seven on the UK Singles Chart, becoming Grant’s first top 10 hits for more than five years. He was a founding member of the group, The Equals and the pioneer of the genre ringbang.
