Musician Mandla ‘Mampintsha‘ Maphumulo, who died on Christmas Eve after suffering a stroke, will be laid to rest on Friday morning.
News of the Big Nuz member’s death was confirmed by fellow musician and record label boss, DJ Tira.
Mampintsha’s memorial service was held in Durban on Thursday, with fans coming out in their numbers to pay tribute to the late kwaito star at the eThekwini Community Church in the Durban CBD.
Mampintsha’s memorial service was open to the public, in an effort to give everyone a chance to pay their respects.
Condolences to Mampintsha’s family, particularly his wife Babes Wodumo (real name Bongekile Simelane), continue to pour in. The couple share a son, Sponge.
The pair tied the knot in 2021 and their wedding was screened in a Showmax special, in addition to the reality TV show Uthando Lodumo.
Despite the couple having a tumultuous public life, the pair stuck together throughout the ups and downs in the last decade.
