Famed South African rapper Costa Tsobanoglou, also known as Costa Titch, died on Saturday while wowing festival-goers at the Ultra Music Festival in Johannesburg.
The singer who is best known for his famous song “Big Flexa,” died during a performance on stage.
Videos of the musician performing online show him falling during the song but continuing after being lifted by his security guards.
Unfortunately, he fell again and had to be pulled off the stage.
The story was confirmed by South African broadcaster Phil Mphela via Twitter on Saturday night.
Costa Titch, RIP, Mphela tweeted “RIP: Costa Titch. Nelspruit-born artist and dancer, real name Costa Tsobanoglou, has passed away. He was 27.”
The up-and-coming singer recently signed a deal with Akon’s record label Konvict Kulture.
After fellow singer Kiernan Forbes, AKA, was shot dead in February, Costa’s death marks another devastating loss for the South African music industry.
