Lebo Mathosa is gone!

It was with great sadness that we heard the reports this morning about the tragic passing of Lebo Mathosa.

It has been reported that she was the passenger in a vehicle that lost control, rolled and skided off the road, leaving the driver with minor injuries. Lebo sustained fatal injuries.

Lebo is an icon in SA Music, from her early days as part of Boom Shaka, to her success as a solo artist, and just a few months ago she was nominated for a MOBO award for Best African Act, having previously won Best Dance Album for Dream, Best Dance Single for intro and Best Female Vocalist at the South AFrican Music Awards.

"You can't deny death, you can't fear it. I'm sure God has a better place for us, if you're a believer." Lebo said in November 2004, just after learning of Brenda Fassie's passing.

Lebo Mathosa's talent will be missed by the whole industry.

I did not know Lebo on a personal level but I have seen her perform several times. She was the type of artist you were proud of, proud to tell people that she represented South Africa. When I heard the news I felt like I knew you on a personal level and was literally shaking... Robala Ka Kagiso. Refilwe Moilwanyana.
