Music legend Dan Tshanda had plans to make more music with Splash and Dalom Music, he said before his death. In a video that has been circulating on social media, Tshanda seemed to have been on holiday in Durban when he decided to take a video for his fans.
He wished them a “blessed” Christmas and New Year, before promising to make the best music in 2019.
He says: “Hi everyone, my name is Dan Tshanda. I’m in Durban now, you know, thinking of next year, what’s going to happen next year. First of all, I want to wish you a very blessed Christmas and a very blessed New Year. I want you to know that I love you very much. Next year you’re going to see some changes from Splash and Dalom Music because it’s a new year and we want to give you the best one.”
