The South African entertainment industry is mourning another loss with the death of former Rhythm City actor Brian ‘Bruno’ Majola.

Media reports coming to Entertainment SA indicate that Maiola was found by his girlfriend, who works as a chef.

News24 reports that the actor who played Bongani in the canceled eTV series was also a rapper and Kwaito musician.

The website quoted Majola’s friend Pardon Makama as confirming the sad news, and the social media community is now paying tribute to the fallen star.

It is also revealed that Majola and Makamu have been friends for ten years but could not confirm the details of their friend’s death.

“I can’t believe it. I found out soon after it happened,” Makamu confirmed.

“I have not yet received full information. Bruno and his girlfriend lived in his mother’s pre-lockdown home in Emdeni in Soweto and he also had another place in Duba.

“I don’t think I want to share all the information I’ve been told because the family is still processing the news, but I don’t believe it, to say the least.

“We met through Zola 7 in Melville where we both stayed. At that point we weren’t in a good place and we weren’t talking, but we were best friends.”

Meanwhile, “Bruno” was in Kwaito Gumshev’s duet with Fisto back in the early 2000s and has been open about growing up with the wrong crowd.

Majola spent some time in juvenile prison and signed to Ghetto Ruff after his release – he went on to produce albums such as Straight Out Of Prison and Sthandu Cash – before launching his own production company, Jamshack Records.
