JOHANNESBURG, South Africa – South African kwaito star Mshoza has died at the age of 37.
The Kortes hitmaker, real name Nomasonto Maswanganyi, died at a Johannesburg hospital, friends said, although the cause of death was yet to be revealed.
Friend Khanyi Mbau wrote on Instagram: “Rest in peace my love. I am tired 2020.”
Fellow musician Tipcee tweeted: “Just received some bad news. Mshoza wamaboza is no more and lapho we were in studio few weeks ago naye euuu kwaze kwabuhlungu.”
The singer got married for a third time to East Rand businessman Prince Dlamini in February this year after her previous marriages collapsed in 2011 and 2017.
She courted controversy after undergoing multiple surgeries – enlarging her breasts, making her lips bigger while also undergoing a nose job and cheekbone alterations. She also admitted using skin lightening creams to achieve a dramatic, lighter new look.
