The 28-year-old rapper died on March 11 after collapsing at the Expo Centre in Johannesburg at the Ultra Music Festival. His family has not yet disclosed details about his funeral, but according to reports, his memorial was arranged for Thursday. 

His memorial service was scheduled to take place on Thursday,16 March 2023 but in a turn of events, his team has revealed that it will no longer take place today. According to TimesLIVE, due to the Titch Gang's desire to attend, the Mpumalanga-born rapper's memorial service has been postponed.

“As we know, Costa was about inclusivity and unity. He would have loved to have everyone he loved and who supported him to be there.Thank you for understanding and the continuous love and support you have shown the family, friends, and team.”

A new date and venue for the memorial will be announced, along with a live stream on YouTube. His family released a statement earlier this week. They said they were deeply saddened by the loss of their son.

Now the family and his team have shared when the memorial service is set to happen. 

Costa Titch’s memorial set to take place today

On Friday, 17 March 2023, Costa’s family and team took to social media to circulate the new date for the Big Flexa hitmaker’s memorial service. Interestingly, it did not leave much time for the general public who had an affinity with the rapper to have time to plan to attend the memorial. 

The reasoning is that the memorial is set to take place on Saturday, 18 March 2023 at Bloom, Bedfordview from 12:00 until late. The theme of the memorial is black with a touch of green. However, if you cannot attend physically, it is unclear whether there will be the option to livestream the memorial given the fact that there is no fixed time as to when the memorial is set to end. 

Moreover, it seems that even attending the service physically might be difficult as the statement went on to confirm that tickets to the memorial service, which were complimentary, have already sold out. 
A matter the statement did not address was the matter of the funeral. Given the delays with the memorial service, it makes sense that the funeral was also delayed. However, as to when the funeral will take place has not been shared with the public.
