uMgqumeni Uyaphila!!!? He’s Alive…?

It is said that in December 2009, Mgqumeni Khumalo (full name: Kwakhe ‘Mgqumeni’ Mseleku (Khumalo)) passed away as he was being rushed to a traditional healer. He was undoubtedly the best Maskandi artist at the time of his death. Some 8 years before another very talented relative of Mgqumeni, Mpatheni Khumalo aka Mfaz’ Omnyama had passed away.
