Lundi Tyamara

Lundi died in January of this year. He was both broke and homeless at the time of his death. Lundi, who sold millions of albums and earned millions of rands in gigs and royalties, was evicted by the owner of the townhouse he was renting in Mondeor, Johannesburg’s south. Lundi sent a WhatsApp message to a female friend after he was kicked out, pleading with her to lend him R950 to pay a storage fee for his furniture at an unidentified storage facility.
