- Babes Wodumo has shown love to her late friend Mshoza by penning an emotional tribute
- The Durban-based Gqom artist shared that she was honoured to have known and worked with Mshoza
- Mshoza had previously come to Babes Wodumo’s defence after she was assaulted by now-fiancé Mampintsha
As Mzansi continues to come to terms with the death of Mshoza, close friends of the musician have come forward to pay their respects. Babes Wodumo has shared an emotional tribute to her late friend as well.
The songstress took to social media to show love to the fallen icon and even shared a video of the two of them dancing.
Babes experienced Mshoza's love first-hand when the Kwaito artist defended her during tough times.
Taking to Instagram, Babes said:
“UNkulu Nkulu usiphile wena waphinde wasithathela singalindele. (God gave you to us and then took you back when we least expected it) I feel very honoured I had a chance to work with you even though I planned to release our song on my next album alongside other great female artists.
"You've been a great inspiration to us sisakhula (growing up) as we came after you to the scene. Ulale ngok'thula Dade Wethu, Ulale ngok'phumula Mbhokodo (Rest in peace our sister, rest in peace Mbhokodo).”
Social media users were moved by the sincere tribute.
Briefly.co.za had previously reported that Mshoza joined the many celebrities and public figures rallying behind Babes Wodumo after a video of Mampintsha allegedly abusing her went viral. She took to social media to offer support to the battered young woman and give her a word of advice.
She advised Babes to get out of her relationship before it was “too late”. The Kwaito artist then turned her attention to Mampintsha by hurling insults at him. She went on to say that he was too old to be dating Babes, who is much younger than he is.
In similar news, South African media personality Pearl Thusi took to social media with a clip of an interview she recently had with the late Kwaito star, Mshoza. When conducting the interview, it never crossed Pearl’s mind that Mshoza would pass away just a couple of days later.
