Mbube written by Solomon Linda -
- Pete Seeger of The Weavers copied "Mbube" note for note, but he didn't understand "Uyimbube, uyimbube", so he made "Wimoweh" of it. At this stage the song is credited to Paul Campbell but this person is purely ficticious. For more information read "Where Does the Lion Sleep Tonight?" by Rian Malan.
