wimpy tribute to Johnny Clegg

Cape Town - The restaurant chain, Wimpy South Africa, quietly dropped a moving, and fitting tribute to Johnny Clegg, who died on Tuesday in Johannesburg.

Wimpy SA changed their iconic logo to read "IMPI" on both Facebook and Twitter, a reference to one of Clegg's band, Jaluka's most acclaimed and stirring anthems.

The message on Facebook was brief, reading simply: "We’ll always have Impi. Rest in Peace Johnny Clegg."

Naturally, now we will forever be singing the foot-stomping song "Impi" with an extra "w" in the front and happy tears in our eyes.
