Johnny Clegg Tribute Show

In a fitting tribute to one of the most iconic figures in South African music history, the Johnny Clegg Tribute Show, has been moved to Sunday 17th of July, 2022 at the Emmarentia Botanical Gardens (Johannesburg), which marks the third anniversary of Johnny's passing, and will feature some of South Africa's top performers.

Zolani Mahola had this to say, I am so happy to be included in this tribute to the late great that was Johnny Clegg. His legacy of what it is to truly be oneself and share that self with the world has in no small way I am sure contributed to who I am today. I am The One Who Sings because Johnny Clegg and other giants like him sang their heart songs loud and clear for all to hear. And for that he shall never be forgotten.

Johnny Clegg had the special quality of being able to unite people across all backgrounds and generations with his music. His music has always been a beacon of hope and inspiration and in a time when South Africans and the world need it the most, the lyrics to Great Heart stand true.

Johnny Clegg captured the hearts of a nation and the tribute concert will feature fellow musicians that will commemorate his life and his musical career. There will also be a dance tribute performed by dancers from Zululand and the local hostels.

"I really have fond memories of Johnny and all the work he did. He adored me and I adored him. Johnny gave so much to the cultural and music language of this country and it is a honor to be on the bill to pay tribute to a giant , said Sipho Hotstix Mabuse.

Biggest line-up of performers since Concert in the Park to pay tribute to the iconic Johnny Clegg - Some of South Africa?s top performers will come together on one stage, including the likes of lifetime friend Sipho Mchunu, Soweto Gospel Choir, Just Jinjer, Sipho Hotstix Mabuse, Karen Zoid, Zolani Mahola, Francois van Coke, Majozi, Ross Learmonth, Kurt Darren, Arno Carstens, Jesse Clegg, the Johnny Clegg band, plus others to be announced.

Bright Blue, Ella Mental and éVoid are specially flying back to South Africa for this event the last two having performed alongside Johnny at the Ellis Park Stadium iconic Concert in the Park in 1985.

Francois van Coke said "I had the privilege of meeting and sharing the stage with Johnny once. His humility really stood out for me. I have been a fan since I can remember and will be a fan forever"
