Danny Dread - Free Mandela 7'' [1986 Trinity Original Pressing]

With Apartheid still going strong into the 80's, the topic of South Africa, Nelson Mandela, and President Botha were common dancehall themes as they embodied the oppression that Africans at home and abroad faced by colonial regimes. This tune produced by Trinity (aka Jr Brammer) takes a more militant stance, with lyrics about freeing South Africans with a M16 in one hand and bible in the other.
