The South African music Industry is mourning the death of one of their leading lights in the industry. Lebo Mathosa, the musican/dancer/actress was killed in a car crash in the early hours of this morning when her driver lost control of the vehicle she was travelling and overturned it- hitting a tree. Mathosa was killed instantly.

Mathosa entered the industry as a teen and become a member of Boom Shaka. She received a number of accolades during her carrer including a Sama award in 2001 for Best Female Vocalist. She was recently nominated for the Best African Act in this year's music of Black Origin (Mobo) Award, which are held annualy in the UK.

Lebo's untimely death is shocking news to many of us who appreciated her amazing talent & thought she was a young woman with a bright future. Her passing is motivation for all of us to live our lives to the fullest (just like she did) as we don't know how much time we have been allocated on this planet.

Rest in Peace, Lebo and let the people sing and dance in heaven!

Yes Selma. Lebo's story is a tragic loss to all of us who loved her. But at least lets be happy that she lived her life to the fullest and she's gone with no regrets!
To everyone, guys lets live our lives as if there's no tomorrow, because tomorrow's not confirmed.

It's so sad the way young artists have been dying lately in South Africa. I hope our artists look at this as a learning curve also, and that way we can help prevent similar deaths in Namibia. This is really cool cousin
