We look back on the year that was with, this, our first installment of the 2015 FDBQ100, featuring Sam Turpin, Simphiwe Dana, The Soil and more

It was an incredible come back year for Simphiwe Dana as she blasted back onto the music scene with “Nzima” only to remind us why she has survived the industry this long with Firebrand. Zonke pulled a similar fast-hander when she came back stronger than ever following the loss of her sister with Work of HeartWasi Wasi marked rapper, Sam Turpin’s return and Vendetta reminded us why hip hop still maters with his latest.

With the general come-back theme weaving it’s way into the first part of our FDBQ100, we look back at the artists you voted for and placed at numbers 100 to 76.
