And although his ardent fans are still coming to terms with the fact that they won't be seeing him on their screens anymore, details pertaining to the cause of his death had remained family secret.
Meanwhile, according to eNCA, the family has finally disclosed that Bartlett died from a cardiac arrest (ordinarily referred to as a heart attack).
The family did not say whether Bartlett had a history of heart attacks, or if it happened as a sudden thing.
South Africans reacted to Bartlett's cause of death, and as you would know, some have already ludicrously created conspiracy theories, blaming the Covid-19 vaccine as probably the reason he suffered a heart attack.
Bartlett was amongst high-profile creatives who heeded the government's clarion call for people to vaccinate against the novel coronavirus disease, and he posted pictures of himself receiving the jab.
Perhaps as a caution, there is no scientific evidence at least known to me that seeks to suggest heart attack as potentially a side effect of either the Pfizer mRNA vaccine or the Johnson and Johnson jab.
But of course, there is freedom of speech enshrined in the constitution, people are allowed to create their own views on any subject.
The former Rhythm City star's funeral will likely take place at the weekend, but his family has not yet confirmed the arrangements. You would assume he would get a state funeral considering the level of contribution he made to the entertainment industry.
