Thuso Mbedu’s tribute – shared on Instagram:

“Mpho made it so easy to love him, she wrote, adding: “We all know how hard he worked. We all know how he determined he was in bettering himself as a person and in his craft. We all know that was always one of the best dressed in the room. We all know that he stayed showing up for his loved ones. We all know of his big heart that was overflowing with love. I can hear the sound of his laughter. I can see the frown lines as he zoned in, concentrating. I can see the cheeky grin. I can hear his voice when he said “Thuwowo”. But I don’t know how to take all of that and make it make sense because there’s so much more to it and there is no way to put any of it into words,” Mbedu shared, adding: “I like to believe that he knew that I loved him because he was one of the (few) people that I had the courage to tell. He made it safe to do so – I know that many will attest to this. May God hold you tight and bring healing to your bleeding hearts. This is a big wound that will take forever to sew itself back together. Handle with care. Mphowowo… then. Now. Forever. You’ll always be my person. Thank you for doing life with us, my friend.”

Nthati Moshesh shared her heartfelt tributes on X and Facebook:

“I remember this scene so vividly. You reacted to my tears and that made me cry even harder on INGOMA the song,” Nthati Moshesh shared, adding: ” You blew me away on ‘Saints and Sinners‘, ‘Ring of Lies‘ and ‘Savage Beauty‘. If I’d known this would be one of our last hugs, I would’ve squeezed you tighter. I hoped I told you how much I loved and admired you enough.

She added: ” You were so loved Mpho. Your kind loving beautiful respectful soul was noted by all who ever worked with or encountered you. The sorrow and grief left by your passing is palpable.

“To the SEBENG family and kin. South Africa feels and empathize with your pain and sorrow. Please find solace and comfort in that Mpho was adored.
