It’s been an overwhelming morning for South Africa as we’re all trying to wrap our heads around the untimely deaths of Mpura, Killer Kau, Khanya Hadebe, Thando thot and another individual whose identity has not yet been revealed.
Lady Du has taken their passing very badly. Taking to her social media earlier this morning, she shared her last Whatsapp conversation with Mpura. “Our last text messages are what breaks me, my brother left me, we fought like siblings, we loved each other like siblings.
“We had soo much to do GOD. yhoooo kubhlungu @mpura mpura plans for the weekend, we wanted to surprise gogo by performing together on her set.”
In the WhatsApp conversations she shared, she was encouraging him to always pray. Mpura revealed his plans to take over the entertainment to Lady Du but she insisted that he always pray. Some fans in her comment section speculated that she might have predicted his untimely passing. Lady du, however, has asked for some privacy to mourn.
In her emotional IG live from yesterday, she reminded people to be mindful of how celebrities feel and to stop being intensive toward their feelings.
“I don’t think I wanted to even do this, but I feel like I want to do it There are things that I think a lot of people need to understand and that is we are not celebrities when we lose our brothers. We are not celebrities when we are in pain. Nobody can ever handle the pain of losing people that they care about. People that have helped them grow in every way possible.” She said in part.
Sharing clips of them in the studio, she spoke about the love they shared amongst each other and playing the role of a big sister to them and added that she will never forget the role they played in her career.
“Something about building solid relationships in this industry, being a big sister to them was something I didn’t even think about. I made them sooo uncomfortable by sending I love you messages, but they’d always send it back. In this cruel world, we live in with sooo many toxic people, we created a family, we fought, we solved our issues, we’d swear at each other, but one thing I know, we really had a close bond, one I appreciated. I will never forget what you guys did for me ever.”
Du encouraged her followers to love as they’ve never loved before and to live each day as if it’s their last and reminded everyone just how short life is.
“Love like you’ve never loved before, live as if tomorrow is your last day. Pray every single day. Be nice to people, even when your mind tells you to be negative try to send love to people you don’t even like. Life is too short! This has hurt me but it has changed how I view life. REST IN POWER my dear friends.”
