The rapper was stabbed to death by his girlfriend Sindisiwe Manqele in his Alexandra home on March 9 2015, sending shockwaves across the country.

As his friends and family continue to come to terms with their loss, his former Skwatta Kamp bandmates Shugasmakx and Slikour took to Instagram to pay tribute to their late friend.
