May he rest in peace...the South African Reggae legend died last week in a car-jacking...

Been listening to some of his stuff...Trinity is a good one.

Anyone else into him?

I heard about that. He was shot in front of his kids too.
Apparently a big star in his home country.

Mph...yes...

Being South African I wasn't terribly surprised that it was the result of a car-jacking...pretty common back home, but I was still a little heart-broken...my older brother was listening to him when I was yea high...

Google the following:

Johnny Clegg
Springbok Nude Girls
Ladysmith Black Mambazo
