DJ Lag was in Los Angeles for Sunday night’s 62nd Annual Grammy Awards flying the South African flag high and attending the star-studded event in support of Beyoncé’s nomination. 

He produced the track “My Power” on the Beyoncé curated “The Lion King: The Gift” album, which was up for an award. 

In an Instagram post, he said: “Music’s biggest night was officially everything I expected and much more. We didn’t get the award, but we are winners. Feels good, we will do it again and now we paaaarty!” 

In a more somber mood, Santu Mofokeng, prolific exposé and documentary photographer of anti-apartheid resistance and social conditions during the 1980s in South Africa passed away. 

Mofokeng’s interest was in the unconventional. A photographic enquiry into spirituality continued throughout his career and produced the evocative series Chasing Shadows 

His explorations of landscape invested with spiritual significance form part of a wider enquiry into space and belonging, the political meaning of landscape in relation to ownership, power, and memory. 

Tributes poured in celebrating his work.

On the international front, world-renowned Basketball player, Kobe Bryant passed away, along with his daughter Gianna, in a helicopter crash on Sunday. 

There were seven other passengers including the pilot who perished in the tragedy. 

Tributes poured in from South African’s on Twitter.
