On 28th August, Minister of Arts and Culture Mr. Nathi Mthethwa Honoured Johnny Clegg with an award for the contribution he made in the South African Music Industry, as a Musician.

Over Johnny’s 30 year career he released two dozen albums and in early 2014 he released a new unplugged album from his sold out shows at The Baxter Theatre in September 2013, titled JOHNNY CLEGG BEST, LIVE and UNPLUGGED.

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. He has campaigned against the injustice of apartheid South Africa and been instrumental in putting the new South Africa on the map as a cultural ambassador. Clegg is an icon of South African music.

With a career spanning 30+ years, Johnny Clegg, one of South Africa’s most prolific musicians and performers is no stranger to the music industry.

During the three decades he’s been making anthemic hits, Johnny has proved himself to be an outstanding musical ambassador for his country and is known for his energetic stage performances. By combining African music structures with Celtic folk music and international rock sounds, Johnny pioneered a new and unique sound, establishing himself as South Africa’s biggest musical export. From Europe to the States, from Australia to Potchefstroom, audiences in sold out venues have danced to “Cruel, Crazy Beautiful World”, “Scatterlings of Africa”, “I Call Your Name”, “Impi”, “Great Heart”, and “African Sky Blue”.
