THE Princess of Africa, Yvonne Chaka Chaka, surprised the gogos of the Simunye gym club in Mamelodi West, Tshwane, with a performance.
The gogos celebrated 10 years of the club at the local community hall last Friday.
Yvonne gave the gogos goody bags with towels, cutlery and sweets.
Gogo Dorcas Ngwenya (80) told Daily Sun that she had
invited the singer secretly.
“I did not tell the other ladies. I wanted to surprise them and it worked. They could not believe that a famous singer like Yvonne could perform for free, and to top it all, she brought us presents,” she said.
The singer performed her hits like I’m in love with a DJ and Umqombothi, much to the delight of the senior citizens.
“What these ladies are doing is very good and I encourage it. They are avoiding diseases and they are keeping fit.
“I came here to perform to encourage them to keep on doing the good things they are doing,” said Yvonne.
Gogo Anna Serite (72) said she still does not believe it was Yvonne Chaka Chaka who performed for them.
“I will never forget this day.”
As part of the celebrations, they will be going on an island cruise in two weeks’ time.
“We are going to spend five days in a cruise ship seeing new towns, new islands and new people,” said gogo Dorcas.
