Recently our nation was rocked with the sad news of the passing of a true South African icon, Johnny Clegg. In honour of his memory and the contribution he made to the music world both locally and internationally, we take a look at his music that not only reverberated in our ear drums and hearts but helped to blur racial divides and expressed the true soul of our South African identity. Music is a universal language that unifies hearts and cultures the same way the digital space does.Technology allows us to communicate in an international language that furnishes us with thecapabilities to live in a borderless world.

One of Mr Clegg’s and Savuka’s most well-known tracks, Great Heart, resonates with The WebShack, and in some weird way relates to digital marketing. It is a great example of the spirit that digital marketing campaigns should be conducted in, to assist South African business owners and corporates to digitally market their brand and products.

The digital world can be a strange and confusing place. “The world is filled with strangebe haviour” How do you go about using digital tools to enhance your digital presence.
