After the death of house singer, Nichume, took the local music world by surprise, DJ Black Coffee has addressed what is missing between artists: involvement. He called on musos to check on each other.
The suicide of house vocalist, Nichume Siwundla, famous for her hit track Bhutiza, has left Mzansi saddened.
Briefly.co.za reported earlier that Nichume was found at a friend's place after taking her own life, according to TimesLIVE.
Other than that, there had been no further information about her sudden passing, at least for now.
DJ Black Coffee feels that tragic deaths like Nichume's happen because artists don't look out for each other.
He called on musicians and those in the music industry to start checking on each other.
Perhaps if artists cared more about each other than getting to the top, things would be a little bit different.
Meanwhile, Nichume’s mentor and fellow musician, Mobi Dixon who featured Nichume on his hit single, Buthiza, explained how devastated he is over Nichume’s death in a statement released by Nichume’s record label, Top Chap Media.
He said: “I'm distraught. I will remember Nichume as a bright light at Top Chap Media where we signed her. She truly is gone too soon. May her soul rest in peace.”
