Former Yfm and Ukhozi FM DJ Chilli M dies

Fans are reeling with shock following the sudden death of former Ukhozi FM Chilli M. The 42-year-old Vukani Masinga reportedly died on Thursday after a short illness.

Confirming the news on sister publication TshisaLive a close friend of the radio veteran, Isaac Sithole says the popular DJ was rushed to hospital on Thursday morning and died few hours later.

“He died from natural causes. The family plans to bury him next week Saturday,” said Mangena.

Masinga was born in the township of KwaMashu, outside Durban, but later moved to Johannesburg to pursue his career in broadcasting.

Although he was fired from Ukhozi FM in 2016 after admitting to accepting payment for playing certain songs, he was known for his great producing skills where he worked with various artists, including DJ Tira.
