Johannesburg – Members of Skwatta Kamp bid a final farewell to their brother and band member, Musawenkosi “Nish” Molefe, when he was laid to rest on February 12.
The rapper passed away on February 5 after being admitted to hospital suffering Covod-19 symptoms.
He lit up the stage as part of the well-known hip-hop group in the 2000s and rejoined members Shuggasmax, Nemza, Slikour, Bozza and Relo Makhubo for their comeback in 2018.
Rapper and friend Siya “Slikour” Metane took to Instagram to share snaps of the gang at the funeral. He also shared Nish’s last message to his group mates.
“As God prunes the Skwatta Tree, all we got is us now. We lay him to rest today and let me share his last message to us: ‘The work can’t stop, we coming out of this as warriors and the understanding that life as grown SK is definitely not the same anymore so we need to educate’,” wrote Slikour.
Skwatta Kamp’s management revealed Nish died of Covid-19 complications after a lengthy stay in hospital.
“Musa was admitted to hospital after being diagnosed with Covid-19, and after a lengthy stay succumbed to the virus. His family is in mourning and has requested privacy at this moment to deal with their loss.”
