As we mourn the loss of yet another great South African artist, the Inkatha Freedom Party joins millions of South Africans in sending its heartfelt condolences and deepest sympathies to Mduduzi "Mandoza" Tshabalala's bereaved family and friends, and to the music industry at large.
IFP national spokesperson on Sports and Recreation, Mr Petros Sithole MP, said, "We acknowledge the sublime role played by Mandoza in transforming the music industry in South Africa. He unified our diverse country through his famous hit 'Nkalakatha'. We have lost a giant. Mandoza is gone too soon, and he will be sorely missed. The entire family remains in our thoughts and prayers."
