Musician Zakes Bantwini broke hearts on the timeline when he shared a painful memory from his past. Taking to social media, Zakes spoke about a painful day where he lost one of his friends.
He reflected on the day he was in a car accident and his friend unfortunately didn't make it.
The friend who passed away was DJ Sibusiso Manyandu who was popularly known as DJ Budda. He worked very closely with Zakes in the past and they formed a record label along with a few other friends.
“Before money and jealous so-called friends divided us, we were one of the strongest labels to come out of Durban. Mayonie Productions paved the way for Durban Kwaito music/musicians. We lost our dear brother DJ Budda in an accident coming from a gig in Delmas," said Zakes.
DJ Budda lost his life instantly while Zakes and L'vovo ended up in the hospital. The tragic day broke Zakes' heart and he still carries it with him even now.
"If I could advise my younger self I'll say, do not ignore any signals and your inner voice cause I had a feeling we will split up but I didn't believe it cause we were killing it and making a lot of money with number 1 albums. Budda I miss you, bro," he said.
