South African singer and songwriter Sho Madjozi lost her younger sister, Mkhanani 'Nyeleti' Maganye, two years ago in December in a car accident in Bungeni Village. Madjozi took a break from social media following the loss, which caused her not to make it to already-booked shows.
The singer started trending after for being scarce, but she returned to social media to explain to fans what she had been dealing with.
Her former management team also thanked organisers of the shows the artist was booked for, for understanding why she couldn't perform at the time. They also acknowledged fans' disappointment after looking forward to seeing the artist hit the stage.
On Monday, the award-winning singer took to Instagram to share that her sister's memorial will be held this coming Easter weekend.
