Fans came in large numbers to celebrate the life of Killer Kau through what he loved most – music and dance on Wednesday night, 11 August.
They first lit candles and sang, then switched it up to what seemed like an amapiano concert outside his home in Zondi, Soweto.
Many of the supporters lost focus when they realised that more celebrities were flocking into the musician’s home.
All they wanted was to see their favourite amapiano stars and take pictures but the timing was bad.
While the supporters sang and danced outside, industry colleagues wept and all seemed to be in pain and disbelief.
Nkulunkulu hitmaker Kamo Mphela struggled to hold back her tears undoubtedly in pain.
Riky Rick, Zuma, Miano and Sho Madjozi were among the list of industry colleagues who visited Killer Kau’s home.
A church choir that the musician was previously a member came to the home and sang their hearts out, with one of the songs being a remix of Tholukuthi Hey, the song that broke him into the lime light.
A fan of Killer Kau, Sandile Khumalo (20) said he came all the way from Emdeni with his friends to bid farewell to the star.
“I organised a Quantum taxi with my friends to come and celebrate Killer through dance. He was my role model especially because he was from Soweto and very humble. I only met him twice but his energy never changed, he appreciated his fans and that’s why it’s so full here today. We officially have a dance angel watching over us. I hope he’s smiling down on us right now,” said Sandile.
Industry colleagues organised a convoy to the accident scene in Rustenburg where they’ll have their own candlelight ceremony to remember their five friends.
Killer Kau and four other people lost their lives on Saturday 7, August in a fatal accident.
It happened on the N4 in Rustenburg on their way to a gig.
Details of the memorial and funeral have not yet been finalised as the families only went to identify the bodies on Wednesday.
