Watch: Kelly Khumalo’s touching tribute performance to fellow musician Robbie Malinga (Video/Pictures)

As the South African music
industry comes to terms with
the passing of Robbie Malinga,
his brother Bheki Malinga
offered a sense of solace to
Robbie’s fans when he shared
how peacefully the musician/
producer passed on.
Bheki shared how his brother insisted that his whole family come
have Christmas lunch at his
home in Dainfern.
“We had lunch for the family
yesterday (Christmas Day),
organised by him. He insisted
while in his hospital bed that
this (family lunch) must
happen. The (family) gathered
at his place yesterday. This was
the first time everybody
showed up,” said Bheki.
Bheki went on to share
Robbie’s exact final moment
before he passed on.
“Believe me, before people
finished their plates he just
gave up. He smiled, held my
hand and just gave up; he had
asked me to turn him facing
the east. He gave his back to
everybody who was there in the
room. That was his sign of
saying goodbye,” he told the
publication.
Robbie Malinga’s wife, Ann
Malinga & his children are said
to be taking the loss the
hardest, especially considering
how much they knew Robbie
loved them.
In his last days, Robbie and
Ann enjoyed a peaceful holiday
in the Maldives. Pictures here
