Bra Hugh: A memorable last interview on 702

After his battle with prostate cancer, Legendary jazz musician Hugh Masekela has passed away at the age of 78.

We recall his final interview with Azania Mosaka, as well as some other moments, shared on 702.

Speaking of his illness, Maskela expressed how he was experiencing strange emotions and would often time find giggling instead of feeling sad.

The most difficult thing is having people come to see. When people hear you are sick they want to come and see you, thinking it will make you feel better. And someone to pray for you, I say, pray where you are.

Hugh Masekela, Jazz musician
