Kabelo Mabalane jots down a heartfelt farewell message to his friend Tokollo

"Mfana, we changed the world and impacted a generation. You’ve left an indelible mark. We are laying you to rest today. We’ve lived easily five lifetimes in the thirty years I’ve known you. What a ride it’s been my ni*ga. See you when I get there." 

These were the words that were jotted down by Kabelo Mabalane as he bid farewell to his longtime friend Tokollo Magesh Tshabalala. 

Kabelo Mabalane, known by his stage name as Kabelo or Bouga Luv, is a South African kwaito musician, songwriter and actor. He is a member of the kwaito trio TKZee. He has opened shows for world famous musicians such as Jay-Z, 50 Cent, Ja Rule and Rihanna. He co-owns Faith Records, a South African independent music company. 

Kabelo Mabalane, Tokollo Magesh and Zwai Bala met at St Stithians College in Johannesburg in the 90s. They then teamed up to form the kwaito group TKZee, from there their friend grew as they became mega iconic superstars. 

 It is alleged that Magesh passed away in his sleep after an epileptic seizure on a Monday the 15th of August and was laid to rest today. 

Kabelo has really been touched by the death of his friend it's quite evident in the message that he posted. A lot of people responded to the post sharing their saddeness and comforting Kabelo as well. 

The truth is that no one is actually dead until the ripples they cause in the world die away, and Tokollo's ripples will never fade away, he left his mark through his music and he will forever live on in the hearts and minds of many.
