Fans and colleagues in the music industry have taken to social media with tributes to the artist. Music producer โ€“ Sketchy Bongo โ€“ says the music industry has lost a pioneer of hip-hop.

โ€œItโ€™s a huge shock to the industry. He was one of the most prolific MCs in hip-hop in South Africa. He was one of the pioneers. He started doing this stuff before hip-hop was everywhere and popular in South Africa. He just opened a lot of doors for people and itโ€™s sad that he didnโ€™t really get the recognition now for the amount influence he actually made on the industry.โ€
