Johannesburg – “Mama Africa”, Mirriam Makeba, Masekela was born in 1939 in Witbank and he began singing and playing the piano as a child. But at the age of 14, after seeing the film Young Man with a Horn, where Kirk Douglas portrays American jazz trumpeter Bix Beiderbecke, he took up the trumpet. Anti-apartheid campaigner Archbishop Trevor Huddleston gave him his first trumpet.

By 1956 Masekela had joined Alfred Herbert’s African Jazz Revue.

Makeba, who was already enjoying major success in the US, later helped Masekela obtain admission to the Manhattan School of Music in New York. It was during this time that Masekela met Louis Armstrong.

Masekela was only 17 years old when he became romantically linked with Makeba, then 25, even though the diva had a string of lovers. In his book, Masekela says it was hard for him to get angry with Makeba “after all, she was older than I, more experienced sexually, and the darling of newspapers”.
