It has been the great­est hon­our of my ca­reer to work on this track.


Ever lis­tened to a song and get that awe­some #goose­bumps feel­ing? This song does it. What an awe­some col­lab­o­ra­tion.


Wow gave me goose­bumps. One South Africa for all, United in di­ver­sity... A group of 50 South African mu­si­cians col­lab­o­rated on a song, to cel­e­brate the life of Johnny Clegg. The song went vi­ral. Clegg was di­ag­nosed with pan­cre­atic can­cer in 2015. This is how Twit­ter re­acted


This, right here, is the coun­try I love; South Africa, that through art, tran­scends all the b ****** t. Re­spect to all the artists who made this pow­er­ful ren­di­tion pos­si­ble and a bow to the man, the hu­man­ist, the bril­liant artist: Johnny Clegg. Such a wor­thy ini­tia­tive. Lis­ten.


Hugely proud to be a part of this in­cred­i­ble song and ini­tia­tive for my dad. Mas­sive thanks to all the artists and or­gan­i­sa­tions for tak­ing part. Please share and let’s raise funds to im­prove lit­er­acy and com­puter skills for young un­der­priv­i­leged stu­dents.


My 87-year-old mom said one of the high­lights in her life was meet­ing Johnny at his Madikwe con­cert some years ago. She has al­ways loved his mu­sic. She will love this!


Clegg is and will al­ways be an in­spi­ra­tion to so many peo­ple in South Africa and across the globe. It was an hon­our to meet him sev­eral years ago. This tribute is ex­actly what he de­serves. Left me feel­ing very emo­tional.


Am I the only one that thought the worst when they saw Johnny Clegg trend­ing? 2018 has been rough. This is my South Africa! Tears ev­ery time I watch this. Madiba said mu­sic speaks a lan­guage that crosses all bar­ri­ers. Here it is.


I saw Vicky Samson in there and had flash backs of a hap­pier time in my life.


An in­cred­i­bly mov­ing song in tribute to a South African icon, @John­nyC­leg­gReal who has pan­cre­atic can­cer.
