"LIFE IMITATES ART" - in #freefire Vernon uses "cardboard armor" to "prevent infection" while he's crawling around on the warehouse floor. Today I discovered a rattlesnake on the deck. Decided to give myself a fighting chance and put some "armor" around my boots before trying to catch it...."do not try this at home kids"
If you have never seen this iconic South African Artist
live, this is your last chance! Those of us who lived through the final years of apartheid know how much his music reflects the heart and soul of South Africa. His unique, distinctive sound was the local soundtrack to my youth. Through his collaborations with Zulu artists, he tangibly demonstrated the possiblity of a heart and soul connection between those of different races long before the miracle of South Africa's pea...ceful transition to democracy. When I hear one of his tracks, I remember home. I remember sneaking into Soweto to stay at Kabelo's house. I remember braais and Jo-burg thunderstorms. The smell of the rain in the dirt. I remember the bushveld and the animals. I feel the Soul of Africa. I remember Mandela, De Klerk, Tutu and Johnny himself - giant leaders that guided us through difficult times. I remember all that is good, positive and miraculous about my still troubled homeland. It has been an honour to get to know and love this special human being. Hamba kahle Johnny x
