The family of the now late television producer confirmed that they would bury Akhumzi this coming Saturday, Akhumzi will be laid to rest in Johannesburg.
Family spokesperson Percy Vilakazi briefed the media on Monday and explained that the family is still in utter shock over the passing of Akhumzi, Siyasanga and Thobani who died in a fatal car crash in the early hours of Saturday morning.
In an interview on Metro FM, Percy said that Akhumzi was going to the Eastern Cape for his uncle’s wedding and then a funeral of another family member.
“We are confroted when we look at all the talent he discovered and helped groom all over South Africa, from the musicians he supported to the young presenters he discovered. I think the responsibility for us who are left in the arts is to make sure that we extend that same kind of care and kindness,” Percy Vilakazi said.
Akhumzi’s memorial service will be held on Thursday and his industry peers are currently working at giving him a beautiful send off.
