Themba Ngubane, a heavyweight boxer and bodyguard, remains the only surviving member having formed a new group since this recording from 1995 consisting mainly of family members. In the late '70s, Themba formed a band called Izihlobo (Neighbours) with a group of blind musicians; he being the only sighted one. They proved to be so popular that they their debut album, on the Gallo label in 1980, yielded four number-one hits on Radio Zulu's Ezodumo show. In the late '80s, Themba formed a new band called Mshoza, but their development was abruptly arrested when three members were gunned down in the township of Clermont.
