Johannesburg - The University of KwaZulu-Natal on Wednesday extended their heartfelt condolences to music legend Dr Johnny Clegg's family, friends and the multitude of fans across the world, following the death of the music icon at age 66 on Tuesday.
Clegg died at his home in Johannesburg after battling pancreatic cancer.
UKZN Vice-Chancellor and principal professor Nana Poku said: "It is with sadness that we received the news of the passing of world-renowned music legend Dr Johnny Clegg.
"A true son of Africa who in his youth and under a repressive government dared to flout the laws preventing the mixing of races and go on to create an entirely new genre of music."
His brand of cross-over music entertained generations of South Africans across the racial and cultural divide.
