THE family of the late Mark Sibeso, as well as members of his recording stable - Gazza Music Productions (GMP), are struggling to come to terms with his death.
GMP recently released a statement to say they are reeling, after Sibeso took his own life earlier this week.
“GMP announces the untimely passing of one of our own Mark Siseho Sibeso, who was affectionately known as Max, on the morning of Wednesday, 11 May 2022. As we reel in the sorrow of our loss, we would equally like to remember Max for a life so beautifully lived.
“Max joined GMP in 2011, carrying with him a vibrant, irresistible energy and he was always dedicated to the work and success of GMP. Max was famously known for his stage performances, however, behind the scenes, Max executed his duties as a creative director, stylist and choreographer with the same enthusiasm and passion,” said GMP.
“We acknowledge the struggles young people have with mental health issues and will do better to advocate for life-saving solutions in honour of Max's memory.”
Various creatives took to social media to express their sadness upon hearing news of Sibeso's death, including DJ Alba Nalo.
“You had my back! And I appreciate that, go well brother,” said the award-winning DJ.
Sibeso's memorial service will be held at 17h00 today, at Erf 7 Osprey Street, Hochland Park.
