Fans and colleagues are still in shock at the sudden death of rapper Tumi Tladi at the weekend.

While the family has confirmed that the hip hop artist Tumi Tladi – whose full name was Itumeleng George Tladi – passed away on Sunday, the reason for his death at the age of 30 was yet to be made public.

Better known for the hit song “Basadi”, the musician was deeply loved by his family, friends, and the entertainment industry as a whole.

The family said Tumi died in Johannesburg, just over a week after he released a new song with Nadia Nakai.

He leaves behind his parents, five siblings, his niece, and nephews.

“The Tladi family humbly requests privacy during the period of grieving and ask that you please keep them in your prayers,” a statement issued on behalf of the family said.

Details of the funeral will be confirmed at a later stage.
