It was later confirmed by the Daily Sun. The 37-year old hitmaker of Kortez leaves behind a colourful legacy in the Mzansi music industry.

"Mshoza was one of the musicians and friends who always believed in herself and stayed true to herself. And as a Kwaito musician, she had strong character, she made me believe in myself and gave me a lot of courage towards my craft as a Kwaito artist and a friend.
"She taught me that as a person, you should stand for something or else you will die for everything. She will forever be a Kwaito godmother. May her soul rest in peace," said a close friend of Mshoza's.
