South Africans continue to pay tribute to rapper Costa Titch who died over the weekend after collapsing while performing at a music festival in Johannesburg.
The musician, real name Constantinos Tsobanoglou, was 28. His family confirmed the death in an Instagram post.
Footage on social media shows the rapper collapsing twice before falling off the stage. There are conflicting reports on whether he died on stage or in hospital.
“It is with deep pain that we find ourselves having to acknowledge his passing at this time,” his family said.
“We are thankful for those emergency responders and all those present in his last hours.”
It did not not mention the cause of death
Costa Titch’s song Big Flexa made him a star across the continent.
His death comes a month after another popular South African rapper AKA was assassinated.
Police said the gunman had approached AKA from behind and shot him at close range in the side of the head.
