Actor Tiki Nxumalo, who played the role of Mkhulu Sompisi on Generations, has reportedly passed on.
Daily Sun revealed that the 65-year-old actor passed away on Monday, although no further details of his death have been revealed. “Mkhulu Sompisi” will be sorely missed for his role as Mam' Ruby's mentally-ill father.
His Facebook wall has since been filled with messages of condolence.
Update: It’s been revealed that Tiki was found dead outside of his home in Lamont South in Durban. Speaking to reporters, Nxumalo’s relative, Nelisiwe Nxumalo received a phone call in the wee hours of the morning informing them about the passing of their relative.
“When we got to his house we saw his asthma medication on his bed. We suspect he might have collapsed trying to find help because he was alone in the house.” said Nelisiwe.
R.I.P, Tiki Nxumalo.
