Legendary musician and songwriter Ntate Tshepo Tshola had passed away. It is reported that he passed away due to COVID-19 related complications.
Tshola has been in music for 50 years, during which he has made a name for himself as a pillar of Afro jazz.
In an exclusive interview last year with The Southern Times Arts, he said”
The legend said he was always going to be a musician and there were no two ways about it.
“My love for music was inevitable. Both my parents were musicians, they met during a concert and also married on stage. Growing up with older brothers who sang and loved gospel music, I fell in love with music as a child. Music will always be a part of me, my love for music is getting better and better each day, and my love for Afro jazz will always be there.”
Tshola said his five decades in the industry had taught him that “in music one has to love it for it to do the same in return”.
May his soul rest in peace
