Just when we thought the bad times had passed, another icon gets caught in the grips of death.ย 

When the year is over and one looks back on what kind of year it was, one wouldn't be blamed for saying it's been one filled with huge losses for South Africa, especially in the arts. The latest icon to fall victim to death's hasty grip is jazz musician, Dr. Philip Tabane who passed away due to an age related illness. Celebrities took to social media to share their condolences to the musician's family. From comedians house DJs another old face we haven't seen in a while

The death has been felt on another level not just by jazz fans but normal South Africans. His music will live on forever as it has always been soundtrack of many a Muvhango episode amongst many accolades. May his soul rest in peace.ย
