WATCH| This Is What Jamie Bartlett Was Doing The Night Before His Death


At 55, Jamie Bartlett still had a lot to offer in the entertainment industry. He was loved regardless of the villainous character of David Genaro in Rhythm City and has been described as a rare talent by his fans.

Many people are still heartbroken that the thespian actor who passed away on Monday evening is no more. As tributes continue to pour in for Bartlett who was a genuine master of his craft, whose role in both theater and on the screens was bone-chilling, a lot of people are also sharing videos of him when he was with his fans, how he loved and appreciated them.

On Monday, his 'girlfriend' Rosa Onious posted a video on Instagram of the couple having a nice time at a club in Brooklyn, dancing and popping champagne a night before his death. She thanked Bartlett for making her night extra special, not knowing that Sunday was the last time she would spend quality time with him, that he was saying goodbye.

South Africa has lost one of its finest gems. Considering how much he adored his fans, one can only conclude that he was a warm and friendly person.

He portrayed his roles as an actor in a way that was intense and groundbreaking. His kind will be dearly missed. An extraordinary thespian and a rare beast. A profound actor indeed.

What a sad loss to the industry and the whole country. One of the best to ever do what he did, capturing hearts regardless of his character on screen. As the saying goes, legends don't die but they multiply.

May his dear soul rest in perfect peace. Sincere condolences to the family, friends, and all that knew and loved this legend. May they find comfort and healing.
