Oliver Mtukudzi – Shanje

This post originally proposed a few versions of the song “Shanje”, meaning “Jealousy” if I’m not 100% wrong, but the video disappeared. So went back to Mtukudzi’s version, from the eponym album in 1981.


There is a version of Shanje by Thomas Mapfumo, the Lion of Zimbabwe, but I can’t be sure this is it. It looks like it, but please do correct me if I’m wrong.
