They ignored your legacy as one of Kwaito's female rap pioneers. I wish time was on your side to prove them wrong 🖤 RIP Mshoza. pic.twitter.com/sgST0SsFTf

Mshoza was one of the best we had in our lifetime & no one can replace the kind of talent & music she brought to our ears. I used to court girls with lyrics from some of her songs back in the day. She will dearly be missed. REST IN POWER PEACE pic.twitter.com/zrXVZQnfNd

Heartbroken by Mshoza's death 💔 when she moved to Witbank, she attended my aunt's baby shower and I asked her for a CD 😂, I was young, okay?! She promised to give it to me the next time she sees me. Few months later, did she not arrive at my aunt's place with a signed copy? ♥️
