The Amapiano Awards are looking to assist the families of the late stars, to help them lay their loved ones to rest.

“In paying tribute to the two heroes (Killer Kau and Mpura) that have contributed immensely within the entertainment industry and as part of our efforts to promote and preserve the rich legacy that they crafted, Amapiano Awards are in conversations with financial services companies to create a facility that will assist in ensuring that our artists receive the funeral cover and disability benefits,” the statement reads as quoted by TshisaLive.

Amapiano singer Lady Lu has asked the nation to give those affected by this horrific accident privacy to mourn.

"Guys please understand that I am not a celebrity when it comes to losing people that I care about. I have never been and felt so weak in my life. Mpura and Killer Kau touched me in a way that nobody else has ever touched me and I don't expect other people to understand that.

"So when we lose people stop calling us and asking us what's going on, stop asking what happened and just pray, learn to pray. Sibancane ukuth singashona kanje (we are too young to be dying like this," she added.

She also asked for Mzansi to join in prayer and show one another love.

"You can’t even cry in peace. You have people calling you and asking what’s going on. No! Don’t do that. Pray for people. Artists are broken. We are broken as a nation. We are not united and it is days like this that we realise that life is too short. And we need to be there for one another. We need to stay strong in everything that we do and we need to pray for one another because we risk our lives to get to events to make people happy. Today we lost our brothers.”
