CAPE TOWN– President Jacob Zuma joined other South Africans on Tuesday in paying tribute to the late singer, songwriter and producer, Robbie Malinga.
Malinga, 47, died on Christmas day, after suffering from anaemia.
“We are deeply saddened by the loss of such a talented artist. This is indeed a huge loss for South Africa and the music industry as a whole. We are with his family in thoughts and prayers during this trying period. May his soul rest in peace,” Zuma said.
The Presidency said “Mr Malinga’s rise to fame coincided with the increasing popularity of kwaito music in the 1990’s. He played a role in shaping the genre”.
