RIP: South African Kwaito Artist Mampintsha Is Dead At 40
Kwaito star Mampintsha died at age 40 after suffering a minor stroke and being rushed to the hospital. The Big Nuz member suffered a stroke just last week and was being taken care of at the hospital. Comforting messages are streaming in for the musician’s loved ones and family.

DJ Tira wrote:
This is the saddest day. We were so close and so happy recently, excited about the Big Nuz come back. Why now?
Afrotainment later released an official statement confirming Mampintsha’s demise.
Afrotainment shared a public statement earlier this week declaring that Mampintsha was hospitalized and under medical watch.
Mampintsha was initially taken to King Edward Hospital in Durban and subsequently moved to Durdoc Hospital in Durban Central, according to TimesLIVE.
