The musician was a whizz in the kitchen and didn’t let anybody interfere once he started preparing dishes — his impressive culinary skills were thanks to Miriam Makeba‚ who taught him how to cook. “Miriam was well-travelled and had experienced many different dishes during all of her tours. She passed this on to Ray. He embraced it. He really loved it. Once he got into the kitchen you couldn’t get him out‚” said family spokesperson Paul Nkanyane.
“Miriam was well-travelled and had experienced many different dishes during all of her tours. She passed this on to Ray. He embraced it. He really loved it. Once he got into the kitchen you couldn’t get him out‚” said family spokesperson Paul Nkanyane. Although he was skilled in producing a variety of dishes Paul said that Ray’s speciality was fish. “He loved cooking fish. And I loved his fish. I could even say I enjoyed his food more than his company. His wife didn’t cook‚ he did.
Family spokesperson Paul Nkanyane told TshisaLIVE that Ray’s mother is over 112-years-old and has not yet been told about her son’s death. “We never expected this to happen to Ray. We expected his mother. She is between 112 and 114-years-old. We don’t know how we are going to tell her. She is very weak and it would devastate her.”The musician died in the early hours of Wednesday morning after being diagnosed with lung cancer two months ago.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
