Music legend Oliver Mtukudzi has paid tribute to the late South African Jazz music legend Hugh Masekela describing him as a long time friend, mentor and brother.

Speaking during his performance at a musical tribute for Bra Hugh at the University of Johannesburg’s Soweto Campus on Sunday afternoon, Mtukudzi took the audience down memory lane on how the two met.

Oliver had arrived in South Africa on Monday to promote his upcoming album, but woke up to the devastating news on Tuesday morning that his friend Bra Hugh Masekela died following a nine-year battle with prostate cancer.
