The 40-year-old celebrity passed away early on Saturday. Sbu Ncube, manager of West Ink Records, confirmed to TshisaLIVE.


The artist’s management issued a statement saying that specifics of his passing cannot be made public and that information on his funeral and memorial services would be released as soon as possible.

In a statement issued on Wednesday, the record company Afrotainment confirmed rumors that the 40-year-old, whose true name was Mandla Maphumulo, had been hospitalized at King Edward Hospital in Durban.

This came after the celebrity, who rose to stardom as a member of the band Big Nuz, experienced a mild stroke. The fact that medics were watching over the musician was also mentioned.


Many people are mourning the loss of the musician, who made a significant contribution to the South African music business, and condolences have filled Twitter and other social media platforms.


Many people are grieving for Babes after years of following their tumultuous relationship as boyfriend and girlfriend before becoming husband and wife.

Sponge, baba ka skies! Shimora, may you rest in peace; you were a colorful and lively figure who always had the biggest hits! My sympathies to your wife, family, friends, and supporters! a supporter tweeted.

For more than 15 years, Big Nuz has inspired us to dance and enjoy the best Durban kwaito. They put everything into it. Mampintsha was at the epicenter of that, to be sure. Adieu, Shimora. Such a legend! Yet another upset supporter tweeted.

Fans refer to the child born to Mampintsha and Babes—real name Bongekile Simelane—as Sponge. The couple wed a year ago, and a Showmax special as well as the reality TV program Uthando Lodumo both featured their nuptials.
