A long time ago, I put Bab’ Hugh Masekela on the cover of a publication. The dope publicist who was working on the project that I’d written about for that issue sent me a picture of him holding the publication, smiling.

It touched my heart so much.

Long after that, he was no more. It’s easy to say there is so much more I could have done to shine a light on his music and his legacy. But we’re here now. This i(m)bali episode is an excerpt of a conversation with him that I will always cherish.
