Breaking: Kwaito Star Mshoza Dies
One of the biggest names on the Kwaito music scene, Mshoza, real name Nomasonto Maswanganyi has died.
According to iHarare the queen of Kwaito died at a Johannesburg hospital today after a brief illness.
A few months ago, in April, Mshoza caught Coronavirus while on a business trip in Kuwait.
A close family friend confirms that she has never been better since, and that could have also caused her untimely death. She had been in and out of the hospital several times.
On the other hand, reports have claimed that due to going under the knife a couple of times, that could have affected Mshoza’s health over the years.
Mshoza had undergone surgical skin lightening procedures, nose job, lip and cheek surgery—you name it — not once, but several times in her lifetime.
She did all these disregarding the criticism that came with it. Mshoza was one of the remaining Kwaito legends in South Africa. She died at the age of 37 after a two-decade-long music career she began only at the age of 10.
Nomasonto aka Mshoza’s career started booming back in 1998 where she was a dancer for the popular Kwaito group, Chiskop.
She later jumped ship to singing at the age of 15 where she officially signed up with Bull Dawgs as an artist and recorded he first solo album named (Bull Dawgs First Lady) featuring Mzambiya„
Mshoza leaves behind two kids, a daughter Pride Mnisi (12) and son, Junior Mnisi (10).
At the time of her death, Mshoza had just divorced her husband of six months, Prince Dlamini.
