The life of Bacardi music pioneer Vusi Ma R5, real name Itumeleng Mosoeu, will be honoured at a memorial service on Thursday.
The 34-year-old was killed in the early hours of Monday.
His manager Mothusi Mokhwazo said the Matenase hitmaker’s all-black-themed memorial service would be at the Indoor Sports Centre in Mabopane, north of Pretoria.
“The service will start at noon,” he added.
Vusi Ma R5 will then be laid to rest on Sunday.
“The service will start at 06:00 at his residence in Block A, Mabopane,” Mokhwazo said.
