In commemoration of the 10th anniversary of South African music legend Brenda Fassie's death, IOL shares a few of her most memorable hits.

On the morning of 26 April 2004, Brenda Fassie collapsed at her home in Buccleuch, and was admitted to hospital. The media was told that she had suffered cardiac arrest, but it was later reported that she had slipped into a coma brought on by an asthma attack.

The post-mortem report revealed that she had taken an overdose of cocaine, and this was the cause of her coma.

The queen of South African music died at age 39 on 9 May 2004.
