According to Sowetan, Thami was admitted to hospital after collapsing on stage during a performance. A close source to the family told the Sowetan that Thami had gone into a coma on Tuesday after experiencing some organ failures.
The 31-year-old died at Kalafong Hospital in Pretoria this Thursday noon.
The general manager of Gallo Music, Rob Cowling, confirmed Thami Shobede's passing saying: "I can confirm that Thami has passed away. We heard about it this morning from his family as we were not aware that he was in hospital."
Rob Cowling further added that Thami was slightly responsive when his family went to see him at the hospital this Thursday but he then passed away around noon.
"The family will issue a statement and then we will formally issue one out after them", Rob says.
Our deepest condolences go out to the Shobede family and friends.
