As family, friends and industry peers prepare to give their last farewell and respect to Joe Mafela, his resting is being prepared next to Mandoza and the late race car driver, Gugu Zulu.
Countless #RIPJoeMafela tweets have been streaming through Twitter timelines as South Africans share their fondest memory of watching Joe Mafela on TV or how he left a lasting impression to those who were blessed enough to have crossed paths with him.
As the funeral ceremony takes place at the University of Johannesburg's Soweto campus, Joe Mafela's resting place will be laid to rest at the Westpark Cemetery next to the late Mandoza who passed away last year in December.
The likes of Thembi Mtshali who acted alongside Joe Mafela on Sgudi'Snyc and singers such as the legendary Letta Mbulu were seen singing their last farewell to the actor as they danced and celebrated his life whilst surrounding his coffin.
Rest In Peace Joe Mafela
