SA musician Johnny Clegg has died

Clegg's manager Roddy Quin confirmed the legendary musician's passing.

Quin said in a statement, "Johnny leaves deep footprints in the hearts of every person that considers him/herself 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."

'The White Zulu' Johnny Clegg succumbs to cancer

Johnny, who was fondly known among his legion of fans as The White Zulu, was popular for singing his songs both in Zulu and English.

He became a household name in townships and rural areas in the height of apartheid in the 1980s when he formed a band Juluka with Sipho Mchunu.

Legendary artist Johnny Clegg dies at 66

Clegg was one of South Africa's most celebrated sons. He was a singer, a songwriter, a dancer, anthropologist and a musical activist whose infectious crossover music, a vibrant blend of Western pop and African Zulu rhythms, exploded onto the international scene and contributed immensely towards social cohesion in the young South African democracy.

Clegg's multi-racial bands during South Africa's white minority rule attracted an international following

Clegg recorded songs he was arrested for and "never gave in to the pressure of the apartheid rules," his manager said.

The apartheid-era censorship also restricted where he could perform, yet Clegg "impacted millions of people around the world," Quin said. "He played a major role in South Africa getting people to learn about other people's cultures and bringing people together."

The South African government said in a statement on Tuesday that Mr. Clegg's music "had the ability to unite people across the races," and that he had "made an indelible mark in the music industry and the hearts of the people."

In his early teens in Johannesburg, he came across Zulu migrant workers playing street guitar and started taking lessons. It was an introduction into Zulu language, music and dance that set the course for his life.

Nachtrag vom 17.7.2019:

Der weisse Zulu

Johnny Clegg liess Südafrika träumen mit seinen Liedern, von einem anderen Land, in dem Rasse und Herkunft keine Rolle spielen. Er sang gegen die Apartheid an, stand mit schwarzen Musikern auf der Bühne, als es verboten war, und lieferte mit seinen Bands den Soundtrack der Anti-Apartheid-Bewegung.
