South African’s legendary musician and Advocate Steve Kekana (62) has died.

The music giant died today July 1 after he was rushed to hospital.

News of the passing of the Take Your Love hitmaker sent shockwaves across the music industry as his death was unexpected.

Confirming the tragic news, his manager Xolani Majozi said: “It is very sad, I just spoke to his wife and she is not ok. I only heard that he was sick and then rushed to the hospital. I currently do not have confirmation on the cause of his death. I spoke to him last week and he was fine so this comes as a shock.”

Speaking to Daily Sun, the legendary Babsy Mlangeni who was at a loss for words said: “I do not have anything to say. I cannot even think straight at this moment. His wife called me to let me know and my heart and soul are not ok.”

Steve lost his eyesight at the age of 5 and went on to attend the school of the blind in Pietersburg, Limpopo where he grew and understood his love for music, unlocking the icon that we have come to love and know. He then went on to graduate with B Juris and LLB Degrees.

In 2020 he was presented and honored with a degree of Doctor Of Philosophy (HC) by Executive Dean of the College of Human Science’s Prof K Masemola at UNISA.

His song, Raising My Family was a big hit in Europe in 1979 and 1980 and also went on to earn him the Best Male Vocalist at the SABC Black Music Awards.

In 2018 he was awarded the SAMA Lifetime Achievement Award for SAMA24 just to mention a few.
