As we remember the anniversary of the death of the iconic singer and femme fatale Lebo Mathosa, who influenced an entire generation through music and fashion.
When she entered the music scene with her larger than life group Boom Shaka, they created a whole new sound and a whole new look to go along with their carefree youthful aesthetic.
When she and bandmate Thembi Seete started putting braids into their hair, a new hair trend started as every young girl at the had those Boom Shaka braids at the time.
Leather miniskirts cropped bustiers, and major lipstick was Lebo’s signature look at the time.
A little number in black always went down very well with Lebo.
With her ever so bold outfits, she decided to do a complete flip when she releases her album titled “Drama Queen” where she went completely bleach blonde and wore barely-there dresses.
Some of those see-through where you could see everything… I mean EVERYTHING.
Let’s show you what we meant by saying she could reveal everything.
She has left a huge legacy, not just with her extraordinary talent, but with her outfits, inspiring celebrities now such as Babe Wodumo, Zodwa Wabantu, Khanyi Mbau, and Kelly Khumalo.
Rest in Peace Lebo. You will always be remembered in love and style.
