According to a doctor’s report, he had no pulse upon admission and his sugar was high.
We publish some of the messages posted on the microblogging site by the popular musician’s fans and colleagues below:
Nelson Chamisa: Our nation has lost a giant in the music industry. Young talent has gone too soon, one of a kind. The music industry is poorer without this rare gift. My condolences to all Soul Jah Love fans, his family and friends. May God grant us comfort and fortitude during these trying times. RIP
Allan: Legends never die, your music will continue to play. Go well chibaba, mwana waStembeni, chigunduru. #ripsouljahlove
Sean: Soul Jah Love was my favourite Zim Dancehall artist. So so immensely talented. The rhyme scheme, the cadence, the wordplay and the wit was bar none.
Watched him perform once and that was literally one of the best nights of my life.
So sad that he’s gone #RIPSoulJahLove
MDC Alliance: The MDC Alliance joins the nation in mourning the untimely passing of dancehall star, Soul Jah Love. His contribution to the arts & the joy he brought to many through his music will never be forgotten. We extend our condolences to his family & loved ones. May he rest in peace.
ZANU PF Patriots: Asi warwadzisa wena
Alex Magaisa: He was in my opinion the lyrical genius of his generation. I never paid attention to this genre until I heard this song which I picked from a medley.
The boy was gifted. He made his mark. My best if his discography: Handichabatika
Rest in peace young man #ripsouljahlove
Zimbabwe Tourism Authority: They say a true artist never dies, he stops giving live concerts. Your music did what music does best…it brought people together. You may be gone now but the melody of your music lingers on! Rest in peace Soul Jah love – Soul Mukasa. #ripsouljahlove #ZimDancehall
Updated Version: I hope even us as a virtual community we give him a decent send-off, as we did with Tuku or Ginimbi!
He is so deserving. Looking back now it really seemed he was leading a troubled life.
Remember when he went to seek prayers from one of the churches
Kelvin Mthae Moyo: I don’t think many can argue with me when I say #souljahlove was the most talented artist in Zim Dancehall. He just had this natural flow. The moment he opened his mouth to sing you knew something beautiful was coming. So seamless jus pure talent. #ripsouljahlove .
Jonasy Mukanya: Apa achemewa kudarika magamba mashanu akafa nguva imwechete mara maZimba itai serious chibaba kudarika mateteguru acho Souljah Love chaa Chinhu RIP
