Johnny Clegg sadly passed away on the 16th of July 2019, he has left deep foot prints in the hearts of every person that considers themselves to be an African. He showed us what it was to assimilate to and embrace other cultures without losing your identity. An anthropologist that used his music to speak to every person. With his unique style of music he traversed cultural barriers like few others. In many of us he awakened awareness.
How do you honour a man who brought a divided nation together, with nothing but song? You start by raising a glass, then a stadium, then a nation. We paid tribute to the legend the only way we know how.
RIP Johnny Clegg.
