Political parties have also expressed their condolences following the passing of hip-hop artist ProKid.

The 37-year-old Soweto-born musician, whose real name is Linda Mkhize, died on Wednesday night after he suffered a seizure.

The National Freedom Party says it’s sad to lose a multi-talented artist who had dedicated his life to grooming and shaping the future of young rappers in the country.

The ANC in Gauteng says its artists such as ProKid who have continued to champion the course of social cohesion.

Gauteng ANC Spokesperson Tasneem Motara says, “We’re really deeply saddened by his passing. He was a young, professional, inspiring artist, a trailblazer, a revolutionary in his own right. He was an artist that many in the industry respected, as well as many South Africans (who) looked up to. He was an icon of his era and trade. And he’ll really be sadly and sorely missed by all of us.”
