Carte Blanche pays tribute to legendary musician, songwriter and activist Johnny Clegg on M-Net & M-Net HD (Channel 101) on Sunday, July 21, 2019, at 19h00 and again on M-Net Plus 1 (Channel 901 at 20h00.

Best known for some of his iconic hits such as Impi and Asimbonanga – a song paying homage to Nelson Mandela and other struggle stalwarts of his time – the man fondly known as the ‘White Zulu’ succumbed to pancreatic cancer earlier this week. As South Africa mourns the passing of yet another musical giant, we remember a man who embraced, comforted and fought for his compatriots, during a time in this country when it was dangerous to do so.

The tribute is produced by Diana Lucas and presented by Claire Mawisa.
