Still immensely popular in SA.
Joy - Paradise Road:
Joy were a female vocal group consisting of Anneline Malebo, Thoko Ndlovu and Felicia Marion.
Like many SA groups they had a moment of near international breakthrough, but through personal problems or mismanagement and management greed they fell back into obscurity.
Joy was remembered in 2002 when SA Idols contestants covered the song.
Then it turned out that former Joy lead-vocalist Anneline Malebo was a rape survivor and AIDS victim.
The government infamously refused to supply ARVs due to quack theories, and Malebo lived outside the small areas with internationally funded pilot projects.
Tragic, to say the least.
