The Good Morning Breakfast team took a trip down memory lane with Mango Groove’s Claire Johnston.


Johnston is the lead singer of the iconic 11-piece South African Afropop band. Mango Groove was founded in 1984 and she joined them a year later.

“I joined this band and my eyes opened to how a lot of South Africans lived… of course, music is such a wonderful way of breaking down barriers and connecting people… That’s how my life changed – when I really saw the power of music.”

Claire also recounted how the band recorded their hit song “Special Star”.
