It’s the end of everyone in the world. Mshoza bid farewell to her final resting place
Kwaito star Nomasonto “Mshoza” Maswanganyi was accompanied to her final resting place at the weekend by close friends and family, as fans attended the somber event virtually.
Mshoza died on Thursday, November 19 at the age of 37, leaving her two children and two siblings.
Keeping to the numbers specified by the Covid-19 regulations, Mshoza’s family and closest friends showed up to bid the Kortes hitmaker farewell.
Emotional goodbye from Mshoza’s daughter Pride
Her young daughter, the Pride, gave one of the saddest speeches of the day as she said a final goodbye to her mother.
Pride got emotional as she began to read the tribute she wrote and a loved one stepped in to read her letter on her behalf as her young brother stood behind her.
“Mommy I’m at a loss of words, I wasn’t able to lose you. I do not skills I’m getting to make it without you … But I do know it’s God’s plan.
“I love you, mama, I do know you’re watching over us,” Pride wrote.
Watch the speech below:
"Mommy I am at a loss of words, I wasn't ready to lose you. I don't know how I am going to make it without you" – Mshoza's children pay tribute to their mother.

Mshoza’s tombstone unveiled
Mshoza’s tombstone features a life-size picture of the star stepping on planet earth. Her family used one of Mshoza’s hottest pictures where she wore a white and gold matching set and completed the design with white Converse All-stars. The stone tells the story that Mshoza was literally on top of the planet.
Most of her fans on the socials found it fitting, while others felt it had been a bit “extra”.
I never thought anyone could top Joe Mafela’s tombstone. Then……….Mshoza

Rasta bids farewell to Mshoza
Meanwhile, Rasta also showed up — as he always does — to mention his goodbye to Mshoza the sole way he knows how.
His second portrait of the kwaito singer sparked reactions from Mshoza’s fans, a number of whom could see a small resemblance, while others struggled to ascertain Mshoza within the painting Rasta delivered to live during the funeral service.

The drawing, supported by Mshoza’s picture in white, was the second attempt for the “controversial funeral artist”. His first attempt also didn’t go down so well with Mshoza’s fans.
Here are some reactions:
Bathong! Rasta’s painting of Mshoza.
