Cassper Nyovest recalled the first time he met DJ Sumbody he said: “Me and DJ Sumbody met a long time ago. I don’t know who he took my number from. However, when he was on the radio he would call me every week to give me an interview without telling me anything before. I would answer thinking it was just a call, and he would be like “you are live on air, you see we are supporting you” and that is how our relationship started. How we became close friends with him is a funny story”. The rapper said, while he was fighting back his tears.

DJ Sumbody’s memorial service was held at Lewende Woord Church in Centurion on Wednesday morning.

The Monate Mpolaye hitmaker and Ayepyep Lifestyle co-owner was murdered along with one of his bodyguards in a hail of bullets. He will be laid to rest on November 26, at Ga-Masemola, Apel Four Ways Cross.
