Entertainment industry has suffered another loss as Durban Gqom musician Njabulo “Biggie” Zondi dies after battling a chronic heart failure.
He was in hospital for two weeks and finally succumbed to the illness on Tuesday night at King Edward VII Hospital in Durban. The shocking news was revealed by his record label Charlie Communications.
His family and friends were in shock on the starling news as they were hoping for his recovery. The 29-year-old had recently released his solo single titled “Lokishi lam” in February this year.
Zondi was known for his huge collaborations with DJ Lag, DJ Websta, Nu Era and Julluca. He also provided vocals for Gqom songs such as Obaleka, Jika, Iyakhuluma, Bakhuzeni, and Vumani boh.
One of his long friends, Dladla Mshunqisi took to social media and expressed his feelings following tragic news:
“I’ve seen people losing friends but never in my wildest dreams did I think I’d ever lose you. Heaven has called you and I know that you’ve answered, but how can death not think how am I to carry on? I’ve heard people say at some point we all lose friends. “They said we lose them to death, to distance, and over time but not once did your loss ever occur in my mind. Since the frantic call came in telling me you are no more, my world came to a standstill, how was I supposed to go on knowing my journey has ended with you?”
