Kwaito Star Brown Dash Dead At 33

Brown Dash, real name Simphiwe Mpamile, died on Wednesday at the Chris Hani-Baragwanath Academic Hospital in Soweto where he was admitted on Monday.

Brown Dash rose to fame alongside then stable-mate at TS Records Mzekezeke in 2002 with a smash hit Phans’komthumzi welanga.

Brown Dash has been in and out of hospital since 2010 when he was diagnosed with pneumonia. Two weeks ago, Dash performed at the 18th Samas in Sun City and it was evident his health had drastically deteriorated.

At the turn of the millennium Kwaito was rocking in Zimbabwe and the music of artists like Brown Dash made most house parties rock.

Thank you for the memories and R.I.P Dash.
