Eye op to sideline Bra Hugh
LEGENDARY musician Hugh Masekela has postponed several work commitments as he will undergo eye surgery next week.
Bra Hugh‚ as he is affectionately called‚ was set to be at an event for his upcoming collaboration with rapper Riky Rick.
However a statement was released saying the event was postponed as Masakela would need time to recuperate after his surgery.
He also underwent a medical procedure to repair tendon and ligament damage in his shoulder earlier this year.
This saw him cancel all shows and public appearances for two months to undergo the procedure and recover.
He told TshisaLIVE in July that even though he’d been advised to slow down‚ he was still involved in a lot of projects that were heritage-driven.
“I haven’t done too badly in life so I have the luxury of choosing what I want do. I am more spread out. I am getting into television and cinema‚ but it is all heritagedriven‚” he said.
Masakela also recently directed a play called Gone Native – The Life and Times of Regina Brooks. — DDC
