Twenty-nine-year-old R&B singer Lebo Mathosa has died in a road accident in Germiston in the early hours of this morning. Mathosa’s manager, Linzy Cowley, confirmed that it was in fact Mathosa who had died, after speculation this morning as to which female singing star it was.

Police say Mathosa’s driver lost control of the vehicle at the Heidelberg off-ramp shortly after midnight. Mathosa star died at the scene. Her driver sustained light injuries.

Mathosa shot to fame in 1994 as front vocalist and dancer for the multi-Platinum, Boom Shaka. She released her debut album Dream in mid-2000. In 2001 she won two South African Music Awards.

Four weeks after the launch of Dream, the album went gold and Mathosa won Best Dance Album for Dream, Best Dance Single for Intro and Best Female Vocalist at the coveted SAMA awards. In 2001 she performed at the South African edition of the North Sea Jazz Festival in Cape Town, the Celebrate South Africa concert in London's Trafalgar Square, on tour in Malaysia and Singapore and for the Malaysian queen.

Two years ago, Mathosa told journalists: “You can’t deny death, you can’t fear it. I’m sure God has a better place for us, if you’re a believer.”

Journey on Drama Queen - we will remember u alwayz

This was a beautiful woman inside-out. I had never spoken to her but had seen her at certain function I attended and this woman would really put masses to their knees. I am saddened by her death a feel that this is a great loss to us as a continent, we have really lost a talented star and there will never be anyone like her.

My message to her family is, thank you for having brought this beautiful soul to walk the lands of Africa. I hope that you will be comforted by the fact your daughter was loved and will continue to be loved and remembered throughout time. She graced this earth and used her talent to move us and we are greateful to have had her as our Diva.

May her soul rest in peace…we love you and will remember you always Drama Queen.
