If I'm remembering correctly the Sugar Minott tune has unbearably corny lyric rhyming Mandella with fella!! - totally unlistenable in my book.
The Specials - Free Nelson Mandela, a top tune.

Bawling for Mandela - Admiral Bailey
Nelson Mandela - Reality

@Mark T: I agree that the "Mandela is a jolly good fella" line is pretty cringe-worthy! Nobody has topped "Free Nelson Mandela" by The Specials, however.
