lucky dube - why not learn zulu

"The Zulu language has got a special letter which sounds like a click. Can you say something in Zulu language with that click?"
"What can I say,- (laughing)...like the type of music that I was doing before I did Reggae, it was 'Mbaquanga' (he is clicking the 'q'). So the 'click' comes in there: 'Mbaquanga'."
Listen to Lucky Dube! (120 K)
Maybe an egg would be 'equanga' or something like that, you know. But it's not like every word has got that click, ya man."
Listen to Lucky Dube! (100 K)
It's 'q'.
"A 'q'?"
"It's a 'q'."
"Make it ag..."
"click"
" 'click', like this?"
"yaa."
" 'Mbaquanga'?"
"yaa!"
Listen to Lucky Dube (and me :-) )! (80 K)
