Last year, Mzansi was hit with a shocker. It was reported that Amapiano hitmakers Killer Kau and Mpura (among others) had lost their lives in a fatal car crash while on their way to a gig in Rusternberg, North West.
If you remember, it happened when Mzansi was in lockdown. The accident claimed the lives of Killer Kau, Mpura, Khanya ‘The Voice’ Hadebe, Thando Tot, and TD who were all in their tour bus together headed to Rusternberg. Because of the COVID restrictions at the time, fans of the two stars were not allowed to allowed to partake in the candlelight ceremony, memorial services and funerals.
Last week marked exactly one year of their death, and fans took to social media to celebrate the legacy that the stars left behind. Led by both their families, SMEA (Soweto Music and Entertainment Academy) had a convoy to the accident scene where fans commemorated the day.
In a statement to Drum, Killer Kau’s manager and booking agent said that the day was a success. She said, “More than anything it was to fix the way the crosses were placed, and we thought we might as well allow people to come because some people couldn’t do the convoy and the funeral, and this was a way to give people an opportunity to get their closure and also pay their last respects,”
