Bra Hugh Masekela will no longer perform at the DStv iRock Jazz Legends on Friday, 22 September 2017 due to his recovery from an emergency medical procedure.

In an official letter to the DStv iRock team, Josh Georgio from Hugh Masekela Management said: “Following a routine medical check-up on Tuesday 12 September 2017, and after further tests, Bra Hugh went in for an emergency medical procedure on his left eye on Friday 15 September 2017. Following this procedure, the doctor has ordered bed rest and a calm environment for post treatment healing until the end of October. No travel or performances permitted.”

“Although this is disappointing news for Bra Hugh’s fans, his health is our top priority. We wish him a speedy recovery and will announce a replacement artist as soon as it’s confirmed,” says Rito Hlungwani, Founder and Director of the iRock Music Festivals. 

Limpopo’s legendary musician, Dr Thomas Chauke and Zimbabwe’s acoustic soul singer and composer, Gemma Griffiths will still perform as scheduled; and the new headline act will be announced before the event this Friday 22 September.
