“No words can describe how I’m feeling right now.”

“Today we lost a real one.”

“From everyone on the podcast network, we will miss you. May your soul rest in peace.”  

Entertainment commentator, Phil Mphela, said his death broke his heart as his situation and death has triggered him.

“His situation and death just brought so many thoughts about how creatives in this industry have to work multiple jobs.”

“How our country is so dangerous, my first reaction wasn’t sadness but anger.”

Founder of Drip Footwear, Lekau Sehoana told Daily Sun that he was heartbroken by his passing because he was an amazing person and easy to work with.  

“He was always diligent in everything he did. This is a huge loss to our brand. May his friends and family find peace.”
