Kwaito Artiste Nomasonto “Mshoza” Maswanganyi Is Dead

Controversial kwaito artiste Nomasonto “Mshoza” Maswanganyi is dead. She is said to have died from diabetes and coronavirus complications. She was 37.

The songstress was said to have gotten married in April this year to Prince Dlamini in Johannesburg. There was no child from the union.

Prior to her death, she was noted for her skin bleaching as well as her advocacy on a number of issues, including gender-based violence, one of the scourges of the Rainbow Nation. She had been a victim herself, according to a personal admission two years ago (2018).

The songstress was noted for songs like “Ayina Chorus,” “Abantu Bam,” “Kortes,” “Not Ngo Sonto,” “Bade Lami” and several others.

By the way, she wasn’t particularly active on social media until her death. Her last post, which showed her in the company of associates, was taken at the O.R. Tambo International Airport in 2019.

Her death came as a shock to not just her fans but several industry members as well, and the condolence messages have been pouring in from around South Africa, and beyond.
