Ladysmith Black Mambazo member Albert Mazibuko says one of their fondest moments throughout their careers was when they first met former president Nelson Mandela on his birthday in 1993.
Mazibuko says after the performance, Mandela told them that they must keep up the good work and that their music has been a great inspiration.

The one that stays with me all the time is when he went to Oslo to receive his noble peace prize. After we finished the song he actually chose those two songs; he stood up and raised his fist and said 'Black Mambazo, Black power'— Albert Mazibuko, Ladysmith Black Mambazo member
We want to see South African musicians and anyone who's got talent believe in themselves and represent our country everywhere in the world.— Albert Mazibuko, Ladysmith Black Mambazo member
