Kuli Roberts and Bob Mabena were not only former colleagues, but good friends as well. The media personality is devastated at the sudden death of the radio legend and took to social media to share a snap of the two of them embracing.
Kuli captioned the picture, "Rest in peace, my angel."
Bob passed away last week at the age of 51. The star suffered a cardiac arrest. Briefly.co.za reported on four moving speeches that were given at his memorial service.

Fans could only imagine the pain that Kuli was in and rushed to show her support. Check out a few of their comments below:
"You were the first person I thought of when I heard about his passing because to me you were a combo. I'm so sorry. You just made me cry."
"(I'm) so sorry, Mama."
"I could only think of you and Skhumba. So sorry."
Some other people's tributes to Bob have not been met with the same warmth. His ex-girlfriend, Zandi Nhlapho, was told to sit down when she paid tribute to the radio legend on social media. People felt that her message, which described their passionate romance, might be offensive to Bob's widow.
