Celebrated Gqom star Mandla ‘Mampintsha‘ Maphumulo will today be laid to rest. Yesterday, friends and family gathered for a memorial service for the musician. Mampintsha passed away on Christmas eve after suffering a stroke.
He’s been remembered as a selfless person who helped other musicians to further their careers. Speaking at the memorial, Mampintsha’s father said he was heartbroken and still coming to terms with his son’s death. DJ Tira said Mampintsha’s legacy would live on.
“I didn’t think in my life I would see his picture like this. Even now my heart is still broken but the one thing that would make us go forward is the love you give us.
“I’m glad this house [church] is filled like this because it means the love you have for Mampintsha, Big Nuz, Afrotainment and West Ink is big. There is still a lot of work to be done. Our sister Babes Wodumo must go back to her place at the top.
“Mampintsha was very talented and creative. Everything that was his, you could not compare it to anyone. How many groups in South Africa or across the world vanished for 10 years and when they came back they went to the top? Big Nuz was quiet and came back, and now they have what I think is the biggest song in the country and it’s because of Mampintsha and Danger’s creativity.
