Todd Matshika wrote the music for the African jazz opera King Kong which proved such a runaway success in South Africa and abroad in the early 1960s. Chocolates for My Wife was 'banned' in South Africa when it was first published in 1961. Todd Matshikiza writes, in his own wry, vivacious and coruscating style, of black life in the Johannesburg of Orlando, Sophiatown and Alexander Township when King Kong was in rehearsal.
