Mzansi social media users weighed in on the sad post.
“No umsebenzi wethu must not be performed again because the dope verse there ileli la Mpura elithi Zekethe and now he's gone must be closed unless y'all do remix.”
“It is ok to not be ok sisi. You're going through a traumatic experience. The death of a loved one is the hardest thing as humans we have to face in this world. Take the time off, heal, cry, shout be angry, frustrated, and and and. We are going nowhere as people who love you.”
“Yaz I dreamt of you starting to sing "umsebenzi wethu" then you started crying, kneeled right there on stage and started praying... I've known as a strong lady and a believer in prayer... stay strong it was a blessing that you met Mpura when you met him. #BeStrong.”
“Eish xolo sisi. Please do take some time off. It's for your own health. I was in the same boat in 2015, lost my younger brother and 2 best friends all in 3 months consecutively. I passed out in class and had a mental breakdown till today…”
