Limpopo musician Samuel Maritus Malatji, affectionately known to his suckers as Lil Meri, has failed. The 22- time-old artist from Ralela Village in Bolobedu failed on Saturday, 11 December after a short illness.
His director Given Khobane told the publication that Lil Meri failed on appearance at the sanitarium.
“ His family is crushed and devastated at the same time because it happed so snappily after he advised them that he was n’t feeling well and contended with them to take him to sanitarium. He suddenly succumbed to the short illness,” said Given.

Lil Meri was featured in several successes with well- known Limpopo music groups, the Double Trouble, and the Bad Company.
Jan Maluleke (DJ Janisto) said he was still shocked by the unforeseen death of his counterpart, Lil Meri.
“ He worked with us, the Double Trouble, and me as an existent. He was veritably bright and super talented and creative. When he enters the plant during the recordings you do n’t indeed have to prepare lyrics for him.
“ I ’m so agonized right now because we’ve just released two tracks “ Jesu Waka” and “ Rato Laka” together which we were planning to shoot a music videotape coming week, but sorely he has passed away,” DJ Janisto said.
