DJ Sbu shares memories of Malinga
Tributes continue to pour in for Afro-pop music legend Robbie Malinga. The 49-year-old musician passed away on Christmas day following months of illness.
Musician, entrepreneur and a former colleague of Malinga, DJ Sbu talks about his immediate reaction after hearing the news and shares a few words about the music mogul.
It’s been shocking and tough for everyone, says DJ Sbu.

DJ Sbu says that Malinga worked with the likes of Doc Shebeleza, Kabelo and HHP. He adds that Malinga discovered artists like Zahara.
Robbie Malinga’s contribution is through artists like Zahara, Musa and Kelly Khumalo says DJ Sbu. Malinga was a father and everything he did, he did for his family says DJ Sbu. DJ Sbu adds that Malinga was a fully-fledged musician which is something that we no longer have.
Robbie was an authentic musician who could write music. He was a vocalist, he was a music director, he could hold his own on stage as well. He could play keyboard, he could play piano.DJ Sbu, musician, entrepreneur and a former colleague of Robbie Malinga
DJ Sbu says that Malinga’s career spans over two decades, and adds that his death was a sad one for the industry.
Zahara says Malinga was like a father to her, always stood with her and she has lost someone very dear, it's not about being on TV. #RIPRobbieMalinga— KhayelihleKhumalo (@KhayaJames) December 26, 2017
