Watch moment South African singer, Costa Titch slumped, died on stage



Fans of Costa Titch are in mourning following the news of the rapper’s untimely passing on Saturday.

The 27-year-old artiste was performing at the Ultra Music Festival in Johannesburg when he collapsed on stage.

Videos of the incident have been widely shared on social media, showing the singer falling down twice during his performance.

Costa’s bodyguard reportedly helped him back on his feet after the first fall, but he collapsed again and had to be carried off stage.

The news of his death was confirmed by South African media personality, Phil Mphela, who tweeted late on Saturday: “RIP: Costa Titch. Nelspruit-born artist and dancer, real name Costa Tsobanoglou, has passed away. He was 27.”

Costa Titch was a rising star in the South African music scene, known for his contribution to the Amapiano genre.

He had several hits to his name, including ‘Big Flexa’, ‘Nkalakatha’ and ‘Activate’. In recent months, he had signed a record deal with Konvict Kulture, the label founded by American singer Akon.

The news of Costa’s passing comes as another blow to the South African music industry, which lost one of its biggest stars earlier this year. Kiernan Forbes, better known by his stage name AKA, was shot dead in February, sending shockwaves through the country.

Fans and fellow musicians have taken to social media to express their shock and sadness at Costa’s passing. Many have shared memories of his music and performances, while others have sent condolences to his family and friends.

The cause of Costa’s death has not yet been confirmed, and it is not yet clear whether his collapse on stage was related to his passing. An investigation is likely to be launched into the circumstances surrounding his death.
