The Mkatimo hit maker died on Monday, May 23, 2022 at Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital (QECH) where he was being treated for burn wounds.
The 28 year old singer met his fate on Friday last week after a house he slept in caught fire, however, the real cause of the fire is not known, but the police are investigating the matter.
In a related story, the Minister of National Youth and Unity has asked Malawians to stay away from spreading rumors surrounding the death of Martse.
There are voice notes that are making rounds on social media in which a woman is making unfounded claims regarding the death of Martse; please do not believe any single word nor share. Give Martse’s family time to mourn their son.
