“Johnny Clegg is a worldwide musical icon with whom we are proud to be associated. We are looking forward to hosting our listeners, clients and fans alike.” – Kevin Fine. GM: Jacaranda FM.
Johnny Clegg has sold more than five million albums worldwide. He has wowed audiences with his live shows, including performances with Nelson Mandela, and won a number of national and international awards for his music and for his outspoken views on apartheid and migrant workers in South Africa. He has released two dozen albums, the most recent of which is Human, in 2010.
Johnny Clegg is a dancer, anthropologist, singer, songwriter, academic, activist and French knight. Whilst all of these tags are fitting, none of them can accurately describe the energetic, passionate human being who has become one of South Africa’s greatest musical exports. Clegg is an icon of South African music.
Recently awarded three honorary doctorates from Dartmouth College, CUNY and University of the Witwatersrand, on Freedom day, the 27th of April 2012, Johnny Clegg received the presidential IKHAMANGA award as part of the National Orders ceremony. The National Orders are the highest honour a citizen can receive for his/her contribution to South Africa.
“We are absolutely delighted to be the hospitality and accommodation partner to Johnny and his team. We look forward to hosting them and being part of bringing this music icon to Nelspruit,” says the casino’s General Manager, Ig Olivier.
