SABC Media Libraries: Searching for Sugar Man, also in the SABC Archives

“Sugar Man”, the story of a forgotten singer, won the best documentary at the Oscars this week.

Sixto Rodriguez made two records in the early 1970s, but it never took off in America.

Unbeknown to him, it became very popular in South Africa.

Searching for Sugar Man, is the story of two South Africans and their search for this elusive singer.

Big is the surprise when we see a clip showing our own collections in the SABC Record Library and how censorship made it impossible for it to be played during the Apartheid years.

    I love Rodriguez grew up with his music and. all my art was centred around his lyrics. When can we see him in South Africa again
