Friend and colleague Kabelo Mabalane, who was the master of ceremonies at Mandoza’s memorial service at the Ellis Park Arena on Wednesday, had announced the details at the memorial service before fans enjoyed a tribute performance by various kwaito artists.

Mandoza, 38, died on Sunday after having being diagnosed with brain cancer in 2015.

On Wednesday, family, friends, colleagues and fans of the late Kwaito legend gathered at the Ellis Park Arena to celebrate his life and pay tribute to the Kwaito star.

Mandoza made his last public appearance at an SABC concert at the Orlando Stadium in Soweto two weeks ago, despite reportedly being blind in both eyes because of his brain tumour.
