Eye op to side­line Bra Hugh

Daily Dispatch - - News -

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
