Former Motsweding and North West FM radio FM host Chris Matshaba has passed away after a long battle with cancer.
According to TimesLIVE, the former Motsweding FM DJ was rushed to a Johannesburg hospital last Monday but never returned home, his health deteriorating until he took his last breath this past weekend.
Family spokesperson Kabelo Mosito said Chris had been diagnosed with cancer “a while ago” and had tried to keep a brave face while those around him sometimes lost hope.
“He was sick but he would always have a smile on his face. He was in and out of hospital but he always seemed to bounce back. He went into hospital on Monday and we thought he would be out soon,” he said.
The couple celebrating their wedding anniversary on Top Billing.
Matshaba leaves behind a wife, actress Tsholofelo Matshaba who is most popularly known for her roles as Meme in Muvhango and Keneilwe on Mamello. The couple got married in 2014.
Chris Matshaba will be laid to rest at his home village of Phalane (Ramokokastad) in the North West on Saturday, 17 February 2018.
