#WhatInTheWorldHappenedTo... Ras Dumisane?

"I spoke to the band & they had not rehearsed themselves" - Ras Dumisane

Ras Dumisani is a South African reggae musician originally from Durban who has been living and performing in France since 1992. He has released several albums since his debut, Mister Music, in 1998. He became a household name in South Africa with a controversial, off-key performance of the South African national anthem at a rugby test match between France and South Africa in November 2009.

Dumisani released a reggae version of the anthem in 2010. His latest album, Rise and Shine, was released in February 2011.

Ever since the National Anthem performance Ras Dumisane hasn't made much media appearance and Xolani Gwala tried to locate him and his whereabouts to find out what he's been up to. Ras still lives in France and says he dreams of coming back home some time soon. He even tried giving another try, singing the National Anthem.
