Johnny Clegg scores big in the UK

Johnny Clegg
South Africa's most famous white Zulu and musician Johnny Clegg, is taking his highly acclaimed 'A South African Story' show to the Royal Albert Hall in London on Wednesday 27 March 2013. What makes this big news is that Johnny boy will be the first solo South African act to ever perform at The Royal Albert Hall. Says Johnny: "The Royal Albert Hall is a very prestigious venue and the last time I played there, I was a support act for Steve Winwood in 1989. It's with great excitement and anticipation that I look forward to headlining my own show in this venue some 23 years later." On his return to South Africa, Johnny, who is known in France as Le Zoulou Blanc (The White Zulu), will be performing on 7 April at The Kirstenbosch Gardens, Cape Town. He will be returning to The Lyric Theatre at Gold Reef City for two shows on Friday 12 and Saturday 13 April. On 16 April Johnny Clegg will be honoured by the University Of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN) with an Honorary Doctor of Music degree.
