Jonathan Butler On The World Show With Nicky B

--:--
The World Show, wow!! It’s a jam-packed event of musical excellence. As we’re joined in the studio, SA-born and US-based for decades, this internationally acclaimed artist has continued to fly the flag of our country’s sounds across the globe.

Starting with the artist who, as a child, was the first black musician to have a hit single played on apartheid radio, yes, he’s the much-loved icon Jonathan Butler.
