Hugh Masekela loses battle with cancer

Legendary trumpeter, corneter, singer and composer Hugh Masekela has died after a long battle with prostate cancer. He was 78.

In October Masekela released a statement informing fans that he had been battling prostate cancer since 2008.

"I have cancelled my commitments for the immediate future as I will need all my energy to continue this fight against prostate cancer,” the statement read.

“This will be the only public statement I make on the matter, and I ask for privacy going forward, so that I may rest and heal."

It would be the only statement the star would make on his health status.

Tributes have already started pouring in on social media.
