Durban - The family of South African music legend, Johnny Clegg, who died on Tuesday afternoon at his family home in Johannesburg, has thanked South Africans for the outpouring of support.
“Johnny Clegg’s family thank everyone for the outpouring of support during their time of loss and have asked that donations be made to The Click Foundation instead of sending or laying flowers,” read a post on the music icons Facebook page.
The Click Foundation said they were saddened by the passing of Clegg.
“You were a fighter to the bitter end - the cancer and for the people and children of South Africa. It has been a privilege and inspiration to know you. May the spirit of your great heart live on in all that we do. You leave deep footprints in our hearts, go well dear friend. #FriendsofJohnnyClegg,” said the foundation.
The artist's son Jesse Clegg, who is also a musician, honoured his father with a Facebook tribute.
