This morning we woke up to the hashtag, #RIPGeeSixFive with tweeps mourning the loss of musician Gee Six Five.
A lady by the name Sbu Mpungose, who’s also a magazine editor, reported that Gee Six Five is no more. Mpungose also claims that the musician is her aunt. Her tweet from this morning shocked thousands of fans.
“My beloved aunt, MumNcane who many of you know as #GeeSixFive is no more. She displayed leadership throughout her life, was the epitome of fearlessness & inspired many with her single #ObaniLababantu.
Mthiya, Shandu kaNdaba, Sontshikazi.”
The Public is shocked and saddened by her reported passing as they saw Gee Six Five as an inspiration. She made us believe that anything is possible.
“Its unbelievable, through her I learned that anything is possible and I should never limit myself and keep pushing no matter what people say. Rest in peace Ma.” Commented @Motsumilebo.
Although there hasn’t been any other confirmation except the Tweet from Sbu, who claims that Gee Sex Five was her aunt, tributes have been flooding in through social media.
Some tweeps, however, do not believe the reports. They believe this could be another case of fake news from Twitter’s midnight gang.
Real name Olpha Selepe, the Obani Lababantu star left teaching a few months back to pursue a career in music. The grandmother to 13 has seen great success since dropping her single in November. Idols SA judge and Metro FM DJ Somizi also put it out there that he wanted to work with the 65-years-old.
