Robbie Malinga Funeral Pics and Tombstone

Legendary South African Afro-pop producer Robbie Malinga was on Tuesday hailed for mastering the business side of the music industry and avoiding the stigma of dying poor despite having been a successful artist.

One of Malinga’s mentees, Sbusiso ‘Dj Sbu’ Leope, said Malinga had been a smart musician and had established the publishing company of his music, meaning he owned the whole catalogue of his music.

In 2015, Malinga started his own record company Robbie Malinga Entertainment, which houses artists such as Musa Sukwene, Sammisto and Maxi. Before then, Malinga was a producer and writer and also held the position of artists and repertoire at Universal Music South Africa.

Hundreds gathered at at the Rhema Bible Church to bid farewell to Africa’s greatest music producers.

Malinga invested and contributed immensely in the South African music industry having done albums such Insimbi, Second Hand, Lobola, Meadowlands and Lilizela.
