South African Greats

Nelson Mandela

Nelson Mandela

Nelson Mandela is South Africa's greatest leader. He was the first black president after apartheid. I think his greatest point is that he did not take revenge on white people, and he chose former white President Frederik de Klerk as the Vice President to show that South Africa became not only black people's country, but also various people's country.

I think Frederik de Klerk was also a great President, because he suspended apartheid and changed South Africa with great courage.

South Africa made not only great leaders, but also musicians. I think Trevor Rabin is one of the great musicians. His voice is good, guitar skill is good, his music is good, and he can play multiple instruments. He is from South Africa and made an '80s great hit song called "Owner Of A Lonely Heart" as the guitarist of the rock band "Yes."

After he retired from the band, he started to make music for films with the recommendation of Steven Seagal. He made music for a lot of famous films, but I think the most famous one is the Armageddon theme song.

Anyway, South Africa has a lot of greats.
