He's translating the speeches into gang signs, not ASL.

This looks like how an 8-year old would fake sign language. It's that obvious looking.

I know every language has its own type of sign language, and they're all different. Maybe everybody just assumed he was signing in a language other than the one they knew.
I used to work closely with ASL signers for Broadway musicals and I'm coming at this topic as a luddite, but they use a more universal signage rather than signing every word in a song. I don't know English signage anymore than I know African signage, but this looks very similar to what they did.
One of the most important demonstrations of this is that ASL is drastically, completely different from British Sign Language.
@GF: Oh, I understand what you mean. I know several people who have studied sign language, and am well aware that ASL is really a completely different language from American English. What I was getting at was your other point, that different sign languages from different places are also completely different.

Don't worry Deaf people, here's your summary of what was said:
"Mandela was awesome, did a lot of awesome things, he will be missed."
