Richard Nwamba glad the Ladysmith Black Mambazo legend had left such a huge body of work and students can read and study his work.

South Africans are mourning the death of Ladysmith Black Mambazo founder Joseph Shabalala.

The legendary musician passed away on Tuesday morning in a Pretoria hospital after suffering from a long illness.

Ladysmith Black Mambazo has made their mark in the international stage and have won five Grammy awards to date.

The group has also performed for royalty and presidents across the world.

Joanne Joseph speaks to This Africa host Richard Nwamba about the history of Shabalala and the impact he had in the world.

RELATED: 'I view him as a tree that has managed to bear so many fruits for the country'

He has been appreciated more outside than here in South Africa and we as broadcasters are to blame for that.

Richard Nwamba, Host - This is Africa

People can only love and like what they are exposed to. If we don't play this kind of music how will people like it?

Richard Nwamba, Host - This is Africa

RELATED: 'Joseph Shabalala introduced us to the world'

I am glad he left such a huge body of work. Students can read and study his work.

Richard Nwamba, Host - This is Africa
