It was with great shock and sadness that Bush Radio yesterday learned of the passing of Cape Town legendary musician Zayn Adam – all of us would like to send our condolences to his family, friends and fellow musicians.
Below is a copy of the story filed by the Bushradionews yesterday.
Cape Town music legend Zayn Adams died on Sunday at the age of 67-years-old.
He was born in 1947 in Salt River and when he was 15-years-old he joined the Golden City Dixes carnival show, however he was best known for leading the band called Pacific Express.
One of Adams song that he will be remembered for is Give a little love.
Bush Radio’s volunteer Doctor Victor Davids, said Adam was a soft spoke human being with a big heart and his passing leaves a massive vacuum.
Davids said “I don’t know how we going to replace that as recently he was on stage at the Baxter theatre on the 14 February valentine’s day performing and doing what he loves the most and what he does best is to give of himself to other people”.
“Rest in peace Zayn Adams your music will live in us forever” Davids added.
As we celebrate the 19th National Women’s Day in South Africa, Africa’s oldest community radio celebrates 19th year of broadcasting legally in a democratic South Africa.

The first person on air was volunteer news co-ordinator, Juanita Williams (currently the managing director of AllAfrica Global Media) who read the first news bulletin followed by former station manager, Farah Moosa and a host of guests from various organisations.
