Music fans and celebrities have taken to social media to pay tribute to the late rapper:

Slikour shared a video of the Molefe on his Instagram Stories, writing: “too soon for us, on time for God. RIP, bro.”

His Insta story was followed by another post where he thanked Molefe for sharing his energy and talent with the group and joked about him starting a group with Flabba in heaven.

“Woke up believing we in control until 14h30 when God reminded us who’s in control. Thank you Nish for sharing your life with us, bringing Flabba to us, the laughs, sarcasm, music, verses and a positive energy.

“We lost our brother, maybe you can now start that group with Flabba without us as you’d threaten when we fought in our days.”
