    Cape Town - Legendary South African singer Johnny Clegg died on Tuesday afternoon at the age 66.

    Clegg, who had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2015, died at his family home in Johannesburg.

    He achieved fame with bands Juluka and Savuka and songs like Scatterlings of Africa and Great Heart made him a global star.

    "Johnny leaves deep footprints in the hearts of every person that considers him/herself to be an African. He showed us what it was to assimilate to and embrace other cultures without losing your identity. An anthropologist that used his music to speak to every person. With his unique style of music he traversed cultural barriers like few others. In many of us he awakened awareness," said a statement released by Roddy Quin, manager, friend and family spokesman.
