He also thanked the KZN Government for the assistance. “Our Provincial government didn’t forsake us, so I thank you for this. We have a lot to do because life goes on. He played his role. He had a good heart. He was not a good timekeeper. He was very creative, and he had his own way of coming up with names. We’ve lost a friend. When we created the R Mashesha album he knew people would love it. His music is a blessing. That’s why we are saying the song Ngeke must become a crossover song. This is our way of honouring him. Let us not disappoint him and let’s make him proud,”

“Babes you’re talented and don’t mind the social media. Forget about social media and pray to God to help you in your journey,” he said.

“Thank you MaGumede for giving us a son who entertained us,” he added.

Ncube Dube also recognised the Gumede family. Speaking at the podium she said: “He was taken from us at a very young age. He and other artists hold a very special place in our hearts. HE earned the respect of this industry, he is one of the founders of Big Nuz. It’s impossible to consider him without mentioning the Big Nuz. They worked with different government departments.”

He was one of the ambassadors for our province. He created jobs

Duma also called for peace between families.
