South African musician dies whiles performing on stage
Rapper Costa Titch passed away while performing on stage, bringing yet another tragedy to the South African music industry.
The performer, whose real name is Costa Tsobanoglou, reportedly passed out on stage on Saturday, March 12, 2023, at the Ultra music festival.
Costa, a singer and dancer, was born in 1995 in Nelspruit, Mpumalanga, and is well known for his songs Nkalakatha and Activate.
Just before midnight, entertainment analyst Phil Mphela announced Costa Titch’s death on Twitter, and a slew of somber responses from peers in the business followed.
Junior Da Rocka, a fellow musician, and Julius Malema, the head of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), are among others who appear to allude to the rapper’s passing.
Fans of music are still grieving the loss of AKA, a fellow rapper whose real name was Kiernan Forbes, who passed away just as Costa Titch passed away.
The South African Police Service (SAPS) is still looking into the shooting that took place outside a restaurant in Durban involving unidentified hitmen. It’s interesting to note that Costa Titch and AKA both contributed to the song Super Soft.
