But that seemed not to bother the multi-platinum seller. He once said: “It does not bother me; because I am not famous I have the freedom to go wherever I want. I get recognitions through my sales and gigs. Fame means I can be in bad mood when I’m in public,” He told Tonight in 2009.


Bojo Mujo his original name is Jack Lehlake, he was once asked where he gets this name. He answered by saying: “In the Antonio Banderas film, Desperado, the baddie who turned out to be Antonio’s brother was named Bucho. I wanted the Mojo that Bucho had and thought to myself that I was going to use that guy’s name in the future,” he said in a 2009 interview. “In 2001, when I first became serious about recording music, I went under the name Bujo Mojo, but everyone got it wrong. They called me Bojo Mujo so I’m just stuck with it.”


“Our Team is deeply saddened by the passing of these inspiring men, Bojo Mujo a South African and Simba Mhere from Zimbabwe. We’ll always remember them fondly and we feel lucky that we had the pleasure of knowing them, they will be missed, and may their souls rest in peace.” That was the publisher of Spotlight Newspaper Lerato Sirengqe.
