Mshoza’s funeral service took place at the House of Treasures Ministries in Rispark, Johannesburg this past weekend but it seems not all is well behind the scenes. Mshoza’s ex and her family are fighting for Mshoza’s money
Her estranged husband has made some damning claims according to Daily Sun. He says they got married in February this year but were taking a break because of a few issues. He was also supposed to pay lobola but lockdown hit before he could do it.
Prince Mzwandile Dlamini says he was barred from attending the funeral and only found out about her death through the media.
It got ugly to the point that one of Mshoza’s sister slapped him and damaged his phone. He pressed charges against her. She was arrested but later got released.
The family spokesman Khumbu Sithole says Prince was not notified because he is no longer her husband, they were in the process of divorce.
“We are not afraid of him. As for who owns what, that will be decided by the courts. We are ready. This is just the beginning.”
This comes after the Kwaito star, whose real name was Nomasonto Maswanganyi, died earlier this week due to complications caused by diabetes.
The ceremony was broadcast live on YouTube for those who wished to join in honouring the life of the late musician. The likes of Khanyi Mbau, Molemo “Jub Jub” Maarohanye and Mzwakhe Mbuli were in attendance and paid their last respects to Mshoza. Mshoza’s children delivered a moving eulogy in honour of their late mother and Jub Jub performed his “Ndikhokhele” remix alongside other artists as they paid homage to the queen of kwaito.
Khanyi Mbau described Mshoza’s loss as a huge loss to the industry and South Africa as a whole. “If resilience and staying power was a person it would be her. We may cry but legends never die, they find a place in our hearts, in history and the fibre of our culture as it evolves in going forward. We allow her to rest and take her place in the sky with all the musical gods,” Khanyi said.
The funeral procession moved to Westpark Cemetery in Montgomery Park where Mshoza was buried and we were never ready to hear her children crying and asking her to wake up as the casket went down. Mshoza’s tombstone was also revealed and it looked amazing and truly embodied her personality and the fact that she lived her life to the fullest.
