The Queen star took to social media to share yet again another heart wrenching news of his grandmothers death. At first he wrote a heartfelt post about his grandfather's passing, where he laments all his greatest teachings.

"Mkhulu, You were right. You told me that people can lie and try to create things about you for their own selfish reasons but the truth shall remain... and that I should never be affected by them as I know the truth and the truth shall remain and be evident no matter what. It saddens me to even type this as I only just recently lost my father and now you too have left us to be with him too.

"What a sad week. But thank you for Gifting me with Mom. Thank you for speaking life and positivity upon my life. You have lived and you have inspired me. I shall do so too. I honor and celebrate you. And I will continue to do as you said and to uplift and inspire many through my life. I love u Mkhulu. RIP Mkhulu - Grand Dad. #FamilyOverEverything," he wrote.

Just as he was mourning his grandfather's death, his grandmother decided she wanted to follow him. A heartbroken and sad Nay Maps poured his heart out in a social media post. He revealed that she passed away on the exact day he did last year,

"I don't know what's happening...But GrandMa, Its only been a week since GrandDad left. Now I see you decided to join him... You left same time and same day as He did last week. Thank you for always saying and reminding me to "Keep On Keeping On." Your famous words to me."

"I thank God for your Life and teaching me how to Love...As painful as it is, one has been Blessed to have had you noMkhulu as I know not everyone has had that opportunity. My words to Everyone, LOVE THE PEOPLE IN YOUR LIFE, LOVE EVERYONE YOU CAN AS MUCH AS YOU CAN. CARE FOR EVERYONE AS MUCH AS YOU CAN. It goes a long way. RIP Gogo," he wrote.

Last year the fashion designer also announced the sad passing of his father. Bishop Simeon Maphalala passed away on July 2020 at the age of 59. Remembering his father, Nay Maps said life is not the same anymore seeing how he left a huge whole in their lives.

Taking to Instagram to gush over his father, Nay Maps posted a picture of him and his happy family with his late father. He then shared another picture of the two of them all suited up declaring his never dying love for him.

"Dad I will Always Love You!..... Always!...." he captioned his snap.
