The death of Mshoza, who was fondly called Kwaito Godmother, drove many to tears. So when her memorial service was announced, those who held her in high esteem thronged the Bassline in Newtown, Johannesburg, to honour her.
Mshoza died almost a week ago from what is said to be diabetes and coronavirus complications. She had become inactive on Instagram the year leading to her death.
The memorial service had several notable figures in attendance, including Maritjie Bothma, Israel Matseke-Zulu, and Khanyi Mbau, who shares the Kwaito Godmother’s love for bleaching – or skin toning, if you please.
At the memorial, attendees jammed to the Kwaito Godmother’s music and generally had a good time remembering the singer. The atmosphere appeared relax as most of the attendees dressed informally, in tight, some would say sexy, clothes.
The prevailing opinion is that the late singer would have loved it that way. No one is contesting this opinion.
Mshoza will be formally laid to rest this Saturday.
As some attendees had said during the memorial service, she would be sorely missed for her music as well as her vibrant personality.
