The South African entertainment industry was in shock on Saturday after news of another suicide surfaced. According to industry sources, actor Gomora Xiabonga Zubana became the last artist to commit suicide.
Sunday World can confirm that the 23-year-old actor committed suicide.
Zuban played Sdumo, a crook and car thief in the popular series “Gomorrah”.
A family member, who declined to be named, confirmed the actor’s death and called his death “the greatest loss.”
“He was not close to the Duma. He was a nice shy guy who loved and respected people, ”said the embarrassed family member.
According to another source, he had so many great dreams and inspirations. According to a Zubane industry colleague who did not wish to be named, Zubane had many plans to develop into the industry.
“Our industry is not as glamorous as people think, it combines too many difficulties and frustrations that can negatively affect any young and future actor,” the source added.
This is the third suicide in the transportation industry this year after actor Patrick Shay and hip-hop star Ricky Rick.
This is an evolving story.
