Gqom artist Biggie was laid to rest at his home in KwaMashu, north of Durban on Sunday. Videos of the musician's "lit" funeral have been trending on social media since Sunday.
Biggie, whose real name is Njabulo Zondi, succumbed to heart failure last Tuesday. Mourners at the star's funeral have been accused of breaking lockdown restrictions.
In the viral videos, people can be seen without wearing their masks and they didn't follow social distancing rules.
Biggie's friend and music peer, Dladla Mshunqisi, can be seen entertaining the crowd of more than 50 mourners.
In one video, one person can be heard accusing people of consuming alcohol at the funeral.
Social media users have had mixed reactions to the videos.
"No mask in sight just vibes."
"If my funeral ain’t this lit, I don’t want it."
"More like first bash after lockdown."
Briefly.co.za reported that Biggie worked with a lot of musicians from his hometown of Durban. He featured on DJ Lag's song titled Jika, he also sang on DJ Qla's track named Iyakhuluma and on DJ Websta's hit titled Obaleka.
Dladla Mshunqisi took to Instagram last week to pay tribute to the late star.
"I've seen people losing friends but never in my wildest dreams did I think I'd ever lose you. Heaven has called you and I know that you've answered, but how can death not think how am I to carry on? I've heard people say at some point we all lose friends."
