Speaking to The Daily Sun, actress and friend Tina Mnumzana confirmed Jwayi’s death. “We are holding Bayo’s memorial service at the Market Theatre,” she said.
Jwayi’s brother, Khuzi added: “My sister was very disciplined and loved life. She loved children and adopted five-month-old Nhlanhla.
“Bayo was a natural speaker whom we expected a lot from.”
Jwayi had been admitted to hospital at the start of the week with reported low blood pressure.
