Mampintsha has sadly passed away.
The 40-year-old star was hospitalised after suffering from a stroke last weekend and died on Saturday morning, 24 December.
According to a close source, Mampintsha was admitted to King Edward Hospital in Durban and later moved to Durdoc Hospital due to the severity of his health.
“Yes, Mampintsha is no more.”His former manager, Dogg Durban, confirmed the sad news to Daily Sun.
Mampintsha broke into the SA music industry as part of a trio called Big Nuz alongside Danger and R Mashesha who passed away in late 2015. The remaining members had just reunited and were set to drop an album.
Over the years, he built a name for himself as a solo artist and started his own record label, West Ink Records, which signed stars like Babes Wodumo and Destruction Boyz.
He got married to Babes Wodumo in 2021, in a ceremony that was shown on their reality show, Uthando Lodumo. The reality TV show just aired its second season on DStv’s Showmax.
