Johnny Clegg was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2015. The South African musician says he is an "outlier" who has survived pancreatic cancer for the last few years, but he is preparing for hard times ahead.

Johnny Clegg, whose multi-racial bands during white minority rule in South Africa attracted an international following, says in an interview with South African news channel eNCA that a greater awareness of mortality made him enjoy things such as growing flowers and feeding birds in his garden.

The 65-year old White Zulu didn't leave the stage. Last year, with the cancer in remission, he launched a final tour and performed in South Africa and at international venues.

In the interview broadcast Tuesday night, Clegg says the "toughest part of my journey will be the next two years, so I'm kind of geared up for that."
