Johnny Clegg
Musician, anthropologist, slump buster.

Aged 66 years.

Most recognized for: Johnny’s bi-racial band Juluka really stirred the pot in the 1970s. Thier politically charged lyrics that fused Zulu & English placed them at the front & center of South Africa’s anti-apartheid movement. But John boy hadn’t charted a hit since the 80’s… that is, until pancreatic cancer came along.
