18 months ago I interviewed #JohnnyClegg ahead of his final tour. Our discussion was real & contemplative. We spoke about his Jewish identity & why he chose to not have a barmitzvah. Listen to the podcast. #RIPJohnnyClegg You made the world a better place

https://t.co/wzH4uSHSoo

So sad to hear of the passing of #JohnnyClegg. He left the world a different place to how he found it. How many of us can say the dame thing? #RipJohnnyClegg

Watch for the following when #JacobZuma testifies. Closes eyes when answering, adjusting tie, clearing throat repeatedly. All signs of discomfort & possible untruth. Dont worry about him looking left or right. It's not relevant. #StateCaptureInquiry #bodylanguage

Reports tell of the current situation across the US where copy-cats have turned the ice cream licking challenge into a national pastime. #SmileDammit

https://t.co/B9G289iMfJ

Wishing you lots of luck and mazel on your interview this morning on the morning mayhem show on @chaifm @HowardFeldman You are going to blow everyone away @ov_ceo @OVEXIO #SouthAfricas #fav #crypto #exchange #soon #theworld 🚀🌍
