This is a music video by Sean Burke. He’s father and several uncles were party is a popular band in the 1960s and 1970s called The Invaders. Sean moved from Uitenhage to Johannesburg a few years after completing high school. I was at school with his younger sister and younger brother. Since we both are based in Johannesburg I’ve had many conversations with him about the music industry and Uitenhage related social change projects. I do look forward to seeing him perform a full show with or without Loyiso Bala, another Uitenhage-born musician.
Anyway here’s his tribute to our home town, the garden town and special mention to Uitenhage High also know as Uitenhage Senior Secondary School which features prominently in this music video.
