The gospel fraternity and South Africans are mourning the death of recording gospel star and Pastor Israel Linda Mosehla.

The award-winning artist was 50-years-old at the time of his death. A family spokesperson will give details at a later stage.

The Democratic Alliance (DA) says that the passing of Mosehla will leave a massive void in the music fraternity.

β€œHe devoted his life’s work to his music and his faith, and his passing will certainly leave a massive void in South Africa’s music fraternity. Israel and his music will forever live in the hearts and souls of gospel lovers throughout the country. The DA sends our heartfelt condolences to his wife, Millicent, his family, and loved ones as well as the church and gospel fellowship. May his soul rest in peace. Robala ka khotso moruti Mosehla.”

Tributes continue to pour in for Mosehla on Social Media.
