In 1961 Masekela went into exile where Harry Belafonte helped him settle in the U.S. as a student. Masekela went on to perform with Paul Simon on the Graceland tour and defended Simon vigorously when the tour was seen as a violation of the ANC’s cultural boycott. His 1987 hit “Bring Him Back Home” became the anthem for Nelson Mandela’s world tour following his release from prison in 1992.
