FANS stood shoulder to shoulder at the eThekwini Community Church in Durban yesterday.
They were there to pay their final respects to Big Nuz star Sibusiso “R Mashesha” Khomo.
Many people came wearing T-shirts with the words, “We salute you R Mashesha” on them.
The kwaito singer died at St Augustine’s Hospital in Durban last Friday after a long illness.
There was drama at the mortuary when the family realised the body that officials said was his was not R Mashesha, and it turned out that the singer’s body was still at the hospital.
Celebrities at the funeral included DJ Happy Gal, Afro Soul’s Sergeant Malishe, DJ Fisherman, DJ Kotini, DJs Merlon, C’ndo, Tzozo, Joocy and Sox.
Socialite Tha Simelane, Khaya Dladla from Uzalo, Sbo Da from Isibaya, Ukhozi FM’s Dudu Khoza, singers Andile Mbili and Babo Ngcobo, comedian Justice Kubheka, DJ Sjerero and Touch Africa Music’s Mdu Ngcobo were also there to pay their last respects..
