[From the archives] Ray White interviewed Johnny Clegg on 27 September 2017 about his life and times and final journey.

(This interview took place on 27 September 2017.)

When I came out of my second chemo in February I decided to put together a new kind of show, basically saying ‘thank you’ to my fans.

Johnny Clegg

Our first audiences were students and migrant workers… they never saw each other!

Johnny Clegg

I’ve toured every year since 1983!

Johnny Clegg

Most South Africans need no introduction to Johnny Clegg.

He former bands Juluka and Savuka were, at their time, as big as they come.

The famed musician also achieved great commercial and critical success as a solo artist.

In 2015, Clegg was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.

He is currently on, what he considers, his last tour.

Ray White (in for Bruce Whitfield on The Money Show) interviewed Clegg for the “ShapeShifter” feature.

Listen to the interview in the audio/video below (and/or scroll down for more quotes from it).

I’m wrapping up my live career.

Johnny Clegg

My stepdad was a crime reporter.

Johnny Clegg

We moved to Zambia when I was 10…

Johnny Clegg

My dad took me into the townships when I was eight or nine…

Johnny Clegg

I grew up in Zimbabwe, South Africa and Zambia… I went to six schools in five years during primary school… We were constantly moving…

Johnny Clegg

Music triggered my entry into traditional Zulu migrant labour culture.

Johnny Clegg

Politics found me… I found myself inside hostels… I only became politically active at university…

Johnny Clegg

My strength was cultural.

Johnny Clegg

I think we were the only country ever in the world with a constitution that separated people racially.

Johnny Clegg

There were always gaps [in the enforcement of apartheid policies]…

Johnny Clegg

We’d have about 15% or 20% of our shows closed…

Johnny Clegg

This is an autobiographical show.
