The Shabangu family has conveyed that a public memorial carrier will be held for thespian Mncedisi Shabangu at the Alliance Church of South Africa, KaNyamazane, Mpumalanga, on Thursday, July 28.
In an announcement issued on social media, the family announced that the funeral for the Rhythm City actor’s body would be viewed at the same venue on Saturday, July 30. The multifaceted actor died on July 24, at the age of 54.
The Shabangu family confirmed his sudden loss of life in an announcement: “It is with great unhappiness that the Shabangu Family informs you of the sudden passing of Mncedisi Stanley Baldwin Shabangu. “He lost his life in the early hours of the morning, July 24.” According to the household statement, a second memorial carrier will be held at the Market Theatre on Wednesday, August 3.
Tributes are still pouring in for Shabangu. Mncedisi was once one of the most talented humans to ever work in theatre.
He used to be a mentor for so many people, on and off stage, which is something that he sincerely caught with many of his fans. He was and still is a mentor and concept for many people and a wonderful person. Aspiring actors usually looked up to him. There are very few humans coming from that facet of the world that enter the arts, that make it big. And he was once a huge notion for many humans coming from Mbombela, Nelspruit.
Shabangu will forever be remembered for his fierce, resilient spirit and willpower to succeed. From a young age and background like that to where he had come, his persistence speaks for itself. He was once just an actual human; now, not a single character he has worked with has anything awful to say about him. When Mncedisi’s title got up, people’s faces lit up – he had that effect on people.
In his long career, Shabangu worked with pinnacle administrators like Lara Foot, James Ngcobo, Paul Grootboom, Malcolm Purkey, and Aubrey Sekhabi.
