Dorothy Masuka (3 September 1935 – 23 February 2019) was a Zimbabwe-born South African jazz singer. Her song "Dr. Malan," was banned because she criticized apartheid. In 1961 she sang a song for Patrice Lumumba, which led to her exile. Many of her songs are in the Ndebele language or Sindebele languages.
