“Jesse, Jaron and I are incredibly excited and proud to be able to celebrate Johnny’s life on the 25th of April with a day of music and togetherness.” – Jenny Clegg
On the 25th of April, 2020, some of South Africa’s top performers will come together on one stage in a fitting tribute to one of the most iconic figures in South African music history.

“Johnny’s style of music traversed cultural barriers like few others and he used his music to speak to every person and to show us what it was to embrace other cultures without losing your identity.” – Roddy Quin
Paying homage to a unique partnership that started back in the early 70’s, Johnny’s long-time friend, Sipho Mchunu (from Juluka-fame) will also be making a special appearance; as well as Ella Mental and éVOID (who are specially flying in from London) – both of which performed alongside Johnny at the Ellis Park Stadium iconic Concert in the Park in 1985; as well as Bright Blue.
There will also be a dance tribute performed by dancers from Zululand and the local hostels.
