I remember when Babs played me his record for the first time," he continued.

"I was convinced that he was going to make an impact in this world. Costa Titch had a vision that I knew for sure would take over the music industry globally and was on his way to doing just that when god’s plan intervened. It’s been a sad day but what makes me feel better is that I know he died doing what he loved doing the most in this world. God bless you COSTA!!!!! The entire team at Konvict Kulture have lost a brother and an important member of the family. Our hearts go out to his family and friends," he ended his statement.
