Sudanese artist Satona, who gained fame with her role in Mohamed Henedy's smash hit film 'Sa'eedi Fil Gamaa El-Amrekeia' in 1998, passed away on Tuesday at the age of 58.
Many artists have expressed mourning over her death, including Henedy, Sudanese singer Asia Madani, and others.
Born in Khartoum in 1962, the graduate of Science and Technology was widely known for her henna drawing and singing skills, being one of the most in demand performers for wedding parties in the past two decades.
She also studied acting, music and participated in many theatre plays, and had famous roles in films like 'Hello America' and 'Amir El-Zalam' with Adel Imam. She also appeared on 'fawazeer' TV shows with Samir Ghanim and Nadine.
Her voice is a signature on Henedy's famous song 'Chocolata' from 'Sa'eedi Fil Gamaa El-Amrekeia', which became a hit in the cassette market after the film’s release.
