Jesse Clegg and his family recently participated in a traditional Zulu ceremony in honour of his late father, Johnny Clegg.
From Impi, Asimbonanga, Scatterlings of Africa, The Crossing, Great Heart and Cruel Crazy Beautiful World, Johnny created some of the most beautiful music to have come out of Mzansi.
Briefly.co.za learnt that Jesse and the family went to the family home of Sipho Mchunu, Johnny’s former music partner and dear friend, in KwaZulu Natal to perform the ritual.
Johnny spent a lot of time with Sipho and held Sipho’s family home dear to his heart, making it the perfect place to perform the ritual.
The ritual that was performed was a traditional Zulu process that helps one's soul pass over to their ancestors in peace.
Taking to social media, Jesse shared a few pictures and expressed what a magical and special moment it was and how he knows his father loved it.
Veteran musician, Johnny Clegg, was laid to rest in a private ceremony attended by family and friends in Johannesburg on Wednesday, 17 July 2019.
The cause of Johnny’s death was linked to the singer-songwriter’s pancreatic cancer, which first occurred in 2015.
