I am saddened by the death of Robbie Malinga. For some reason I was playing his videos last night – featuring and partnering with other huge SA talents! #RIPRobbieMalinga

I knew Robbie Malinga because I am friends with TK and Sbu.
TS Records is home.
I was there when Brown was big. I was there when Mzekezeke was a phenomenon. I was there when Izinyoka were khotharing them. Then I met the man behind the beats, Robbie Malinga. #RIPRobbieMalinga pic.twitter.com/syEWXeJd87
