Death is very painful and the death of DJ somebody has sodium the hearts of many people especially those who have been working with him and also those who knows him closely.
According to Dj Sumbody’s brother, they’ve attempted to take his life three times. This time they’ve succeeded.
To pay tribute to the DJ and music producer, Cassper Nyovest performed one of their songs they both worked titled ‘Monate Mpolaye. Traditionally and also in black communities when someone has passed, his or her friends usually pay respect and tribute by doing exactly what the deceased loved.
In this case DJ Sumbody was into music, so it was only fitting to have a performance or two at his funeral. However, concerns have risen on Twitter where tweeps feel as though Cassper Nyovest performing at the funeral was unnecessary and uncalled for.
