The death of South African rapper ProKid has shocked many in the country, with fans taking to social media to pay tribute to his life and music.
The family of the Soweto-born musician say he died of a seizure in Johannesburg after 20:00.
“A friend called the paramedics, they got there and they tried to help him, to revive him”, his former manager and friend Mpho Motsoaledi is quoted by Eyewitness News saying.
ProKid, whose real name was Linda Mkhize, is survived by a wife, Ayanda, and their three-year-old daughter as well as his parent and two brothers.
One of his best loved songs, 2012’s Makasana, spoke of coming from a township background and striving to make one’s path in life.
