South African musical legend Hugh Masekela has died
He gave up the ghost in a Johannesburg hospital after a long battle with prostate cancer. Hugh Masakela was 78-years-old.
The Jazz hero had been receiving treatment for his cancer since 2008.
He was scheduled to perform at the Hugh Masekela Heritage Festival in October last year but cancelled to focus fully on battling the disease.
He will be remembered for his incredible music.
