South African music has faced such a difficult time, losing many artists and some of them in a car accident.
They may be gone but they will never be forgotten. It has been a year since the Amapiano stars, Killer Kau, Mpura, The Voice, Thando Tot and TD, died in a tragic accident that took place in Rustenburg.
It was on the 7th August in 2021 when the stats died in a head-on collision that happened on N4 in Rustenburg near the Marikana tollgate.
Their death shocked many people especially the Amapiano fans as these stars were much loved considering how their music is the best.
Friends, families and their fans commemorated them in an event called 'The Big Five Link Up'.
This event was special as a they started with a convoy on the road where they died and it was followed by fresh flowers which was placed on the scene and a prayer ceremony before they took to Westpark Cemetery and Nasrec Memorial Park in Johannesburg, where they were laid to rest.
It later on ended with a party at Pimville.
One of the organisers of this event, Mpho Makua, who is Killer Kau's manager said that the event was an initiative to help the families as they would receive all the proceeds.
Killer Kau was mostly known for his song Tholukuthi Hey that he did with Euphonik and Mpura who was known for Umuzi e Sandton and also for being the engine behind the Amapiano music.
Their memories still live.
