She was 44-years-old. South African social media users have taken to the internet to react to the shocking news:
"Noxolo Mashaqalala has been dead for a week when she was found by someone who was dropping off something at her place. An entire week and no one noticed her absence!"
"This is so heartbreaking #NoxoloMashaqalala a lady that told me I was beautiful at a local beauty pageant Miss OR Tambo 2011 boosting my confidence as a young girl❤."
