Sad to say we won’t be seeing Johnny Clegg anymore because the world has bid farewell after years of struggle with Pancreatic Cancer. Singer Clegg died on Tuesday, July 16th, 2019. Affectionately called the “white Zulu”, the British-born musician learnt to speak and sing in Zulu with messages that were critical of the apartheid government.
The eloquent speaker and advocate became a symbol of free South Africa – a struggle for which he endured jail times and harrassments for but he persisted and succeeded. For Nelson Mandela was released from prison and apartheid ended in South Africa; Mandela would later become President of the new nation!
So long Johnny Clegg and thank you for your sacrifices and contributions to humanity!
