Hard to miss the story I would have thought. Still, yes, it's an incredible film. It's also an incredible first album (the seconds is good but not AS good). My wife is South African so we knew about him prior to this. She insists and I believe her that he had a stature equal to the Stones, Dylan or The Beatles in South Africa.
We are going to see him ion concert in London on Friday along with another South African couple. Looking forward to it.
