Ret-RAW Saturdays: Chicco – Papa Stop The War

During his active days, he was a musician, dancer and actor. He always had the means to deliver packages that left his audience both entertained and educated. Sello “Chicco” Twala’s releases include the 1989 monster track “Papa Stop the War”. The song which was produced by Pam Devereux Harris also had an award winning video directed and edited by Makhlari. The song was recorded during but towards the end of the apartheid era, with a message that seemed directed at the apartheid regime. Sello “Chicco” Twala’s’s poetic voice encapsulates the message of the cry for peace the stopping of violence. This is when music had a real message. Check out the “Papa Stop the War” video below….Apparently SABC censored the men preparing for war scene in the video, before airing.
