Our entertainment agency has access to over one thousand entertainers and prominent South African personalities. Through our services we can assist our clients with keynote speakers, comedians, MCs, function bands and so much more.

However, we are saddened by the untimely bereavements of some of South Africa’s greats and who was featured on our agency website. In today’s post we remember the dearly departed.

It is with great sorrow that we have had to pay our respects to two industry favourites in a short period of time. Earlier this month fans were devastated by the loss of Pro Kid and a little over a week later Sir Bubzin who also passed away as he lost his long battle against Leukaemia.

On Christmas day last year Robbie Malinga lost his battle against cancer. Close family and friends were shocked by his passing despite his time in hospital just before.

Robbie was a South African singer and producer and known for albums like African Love Story, Heavy Weight, Lilizela Mzantsi and The Duets.

In January this year, Jazz legend, Bra Hugh Masekela, also lost his battle against cancer and were remembered by thousands of fans and colleagues. Hugh was a South African trumpeter, flugelhornist, cornetist, composer and singer. Two of his most favoured albums were Home is where the Music is and No Borders. Hugh performed on international stages and was a successful businessman in addition to his prosperous music career.

Just recently we heard the sad news of Pro Kid, who suffered a severe seizure that resulted in his passing. Pro Kid was best known for his hit songs Ghetto Science, Uthini Ngo Pro, Wozobona and living the way I should, to name a few.

Lastly, KwaMashu-born DJ and producer, Sir Bubzin, most unfortunately succumbed to his battle against Leukemia. Kalawa Jazmee Boss DJ Oskido discovered Sir Bubzin, real name Bongani Cele, and created the catchy and famed hit, Desha, in which he worked with Big Nuz and DJ Tira.

Fans and colleagues all praised Bubzin’s work after the news.

As a dedication, we cite some of their lyrics:

Wee mabhebheza
you the love of my life
oh Wee mabhebheza
you the love of my life
Asikhulume lendaba iphele
Asikhulume lendaba iphele
you the love of my life
Love mo
Love mo

Khuluma nam
Khuluma nam

Taken from Love Mo.
-Robbie Malinga

Everything here is so clear, you can see it,
and everything here is so real you can feel it,
and it’s real, so real, so real, so real, so real, so real
can you dig it?

Paragraph from Grazing in the Grass.
- Hugh Masekela.

Ghetto dreams, ghetto stories
kasi life, gotta talk more about that
Drugs, guns all that shit
Let me tell you a story though
Age 15 still a teen, living with a bigger dream
to finish high school, study film, hit the bigger screens
not to shoot boys or blast ass just to get shit

Taken from Ghetto Science.
-Pro Kid.

“A hit track would be produced when there was Bubzin’s touch.”

To round up this month’s newsletter, we said goodbye to two musical greats.

To the family, friends, fans and colleagues of Sir Bubzin, we give our deepest condolences.
