As tributes continue to pour in for the late legendary musician Hugh Masekela, his son has also paid tribute to his father through a heartfelt letter.

Selema “Sal” Masekela described his father as both “ageless and immortal.”

Speaking to the SABC, Selema Masekela says his father never complained about the hardships he experienced and always encouraged others to do the same.

“My father had to struggle so much in life and had to overcome so much that he never had time for anyone who was complacent. For him, complaining was never an option. So, why not laugh and try and find as much joy as possible in existence with others when there is so much darkness in the world? I think that’s why he was, as I said in the letter, someone who always was on the side of the displaced and the downtrodden,” Selema said.
