Kwaito Star Mshoza ‘The GodMother’ has Died
Mshoza The GodMother has passed away today morning, Thursday, November 19th, 2020 due to complications from diabetes.
Mshoza whose real name is ‘Nomasonto Maswanganyi’ was 37 years at the time of her death, she was born on July 1st, 1983, at Meadowlands Clinic in Johannesburg.
She was a musician, dancer, a motivational speaker and a mother of two children, a little boy and girl, whose names are Jacob Jnr and Pride respectively.
Nomasonto Maswanganyi lived with her grandparents in Protea North from the year 1988 who raised her up to when she was 19 years old when her grandmother passed away. Mshoza then then moved to go and stay with her mother who was a police officer and step-father in Green Village at the out skirts of Soweto. She has two sisters, Seipati and Thandi.
Mshoza who is arguably the female Kwaito musician with the most street credibility, the self-claimed GodMother was actually in studio with fellow musician Tip Cee just a few weeks ago.
The controversial star was well known for her skin lightening scandal.
She has undergone surgical skin lightening procedures, nose job, lip and cheek surgery – you name it – not once, but several times in her lifetime.
What caused Mshoza’s death?
The queen of Kwaito died at a Johannesburg hospital today due to complications from diabetes.
Mshoza first opened up that she was diabetic in 2014 after she was hospitalised following a health scare.
Thanduxolo Jindela who has been Mshoza’s manager for 11 years has told Sowetan that the Kwaito star was rushed to hospital on Wednesday afternoon.
“She had been living with diabetes for a long time and she was treating it,” Jindela said.
“We were obviously keeping it out of the media that she was hospitalised yesterday [Wednesday]. Remember, there is Mshoza that everyone loves and knows. Then there is Nomasonto and she didn’t like such things to be known.”
A few months ago, in April, Mshoza caught Coronavirus while on a business trip in Kuwait.
A close family friend confirms that she has never been better since, and that could have also caused her untimely death. She had been in and out of the hospital several times.
Thanduxolo Jindela has also confirmed to our MzansiMirror reporter that Mshoza was not married at the time of her death. She has been married twice, first to Jacob Mnisi in 2007 and then to Thuthukani Mvula in 2017.
“As a mother she was very strict and overprotective. Sometimes I will say to her these kids just want to go swim. But she always insisted that she didn’t want to spoil her kids. Her approach to motherhood was very old school,” Jindela stated.
“She was staying with her kids and they were with her until the end.” Jindela further revealed.
Rest in peace Mshoza, the year 2020 is still proving to be a mess.
