Kwaito star Mandoza has died

South African kwaito musician Mduduzi ‘Mandoza’ Tshabalala has died.

Family spokesperson has confirmed Mduduzi Tshabalala passed away at around midday after being taken to hospital this morning.

He was diagnosed with a brain tumour about a year ago, and today lost his battle with cancer.

He had been admitted to hospital earlier this week but had returned home in what his family had described as a stable condition.

Social media has been expressing condolences and commemorating his life all day #RIPMandoza

President Jacob Zuma issued a statement on Sunday afternoon.

"South Africa has lost one of its pioneers whose music appealed to a cross section of our people, young and old and was known to have achieved the unique crossover culturally to be enjoyed by both black and white South Africans. It is a great loss to the nation and we wish to extend our deepest condolences to his wife Mpho, his family and hordes of fans. Mandoza will be sorely missed. May his soul rest in peace."
