      MUSIC star Johnny Clegg is to receive an honorary doctorate from the University of KwaZulu-Natal, three weeks after he becomes the first South African music act to present his own show at London’s Royal Albert Hall, and a month after he gives his first theatrical performances in Durban in more than two decades.

      The UKZN Honorary Doctor of Music degree, to be presented on the Durban campus on April 16, is in recognition of a music career that “demonstrates pride in the African heritage”, and for “pioneering scholarly research (that has) delved into the most contentious issues of Zulu cultural adaption, including adaptive social performance practices and indigenous forms of conflict resolution”.

      It won’t be the first doctorate awarded to Clegg â€" he received a Doctor of Humane Letters degree from Dartmouth College in the US last June, and an Honorary Doctorate of Law degree from City University of New York in 2011.

      “At least I will have something to fall back on one day,” he jokes.
