Mshoza’s manager talks about what killed the kwaito star
Kwaito star Mshoza, real name Nomasonto Maswanganyi, died on Thursday morning thanks to complications from diabetes.
The 37-year-old musician first revealed that she was diabetic in 2014 when she was hospitalized after a health scare.
Her manager of 11 years Thanduxolo Jindela told an area publication that she was rushed to hospital on Wednesday afternoon.
“She had been living with diabetes for an extended time and she or he was treating it,” Jindela said.
“We were obviously keeping it out of the media that she was hospitalized yesterday [Wednesday]. Remember, there’s Mshoza that everybody loves and knows. Then there’s Nomasonto and she or he didn’t like such things to be known.”
Mshoza is survived by her two children, Pride, and Jacob Jnr, also as two sisters.
Jindal confirmed that Mshoza wasn’t married at the time of her death. She has been married twice, first to Jacob Mnisi in 2007 then to Thuthukani Mvula in 2017.
“As a mother, she was very strict and overprotective. Sometimes I will be able to tell her these kids just want to travel swim. But she always insisted that she didn’t want to spoil her kids. Her approach to motherhood was very old fashioned,” Jindal said.
“She was staying together with her |along with her”> together with her kids and that they were with her until the top .”
Mshoza rose to fame because of the First Lady of Kwaito together with her blockbuster Kortes within the early 2000s from her debut album BullDawgz First Lady. She collaborated with stars like Mzambiya and Msawawa.
In 2016 she worked with Jindela in staging her music comeback when the only Abantu Bam was released.
“Aside of Mshoza that folks didn’t know is that she was always trying to show us life lessons. Everything that she had she is going to share it with me et al. . I want to tell her that her weakness is that she likes to share, albeit it’s the last of her,” Jindal said.
“She liked to read too. Even once we [were] traveling, at the airport she was always reading a book, and even at her house there was an area filled with books.
“I would describe her as an introvert because numerous times I might push her to try to things and leave. she is going to say she only goes out if she’s working.
“She was more of a sister to me. I remember when her mother was sick I couldn’t handle it, but she was strong for everybody.
“We wanted to form money and be rich. She wont to tell me, use my brand to urge where you would like to travel. We fought tons as friends because we are both stubborn – plus I’m older and she’s younger.”
