Judith Sephuma Opens Up About Her Relationship With Brenda Fassie. Judith Sephuma is one of a few S.A musicians who got to work with legendary star Brenda Fassie while she was still alive and was honoured for such opportunity. In fact the star revealed that Brenda was the reason she got the spotlight and was able to grow into music.
Judith had met Brenda when she had run away from home at the age of 13. And she was able to go under the fence, pass the security guards to get to her idol.
“When I got to her I was already in tears. I said I want to sing for you, she said can you sing? I said yes and then she said sing for me.”
Brenda was blown away by her voice that she got everyone around to back Judith while she sang.
“It was one of the most amazing moments of my life.”
They both went on stage to sing Brenda’s popular song, Too Late For Mama.
“I got so famous. I knew on that day that my life was different. I was not an ordinary girl. From that day onwards there were people coming into my house, my mom refused media because she didn’t understand, she thought they were going to steal me or something,” said Judith who studied Jazz at the University of Cape Town.
