2020 has taken another popular singer.

The kwaito star Nomasonto Maswanganyi, best known as Mshoza, has reportedly died at a Johannesburg hospital after a short illness.

She was 37.

She leaves behind a colourful legacy in the Mzansi music industry. Mshoza rose to fame with her smash hit Kortes in the early 2000s and performed as a dancer between 1998 and 1999.

In July, she reportedly caught the coronavirus but recovered from it.

She has been in the headlines quite a few times due to her obsession with skin-lightening and numerous short-lived marriages.

She has been married three times and leaves behind two children.

Celebrities and fans have expressed their shock and dismay over her untimely death.
