Saddening news and a big loss for music industry peers and supporters as Pheko Kgengoe loses his life to Covid-19. Pheko was an industry player that worked at Sony as well as at Raplyf. Records. The announcement of his passing was confirmed this morning after suffering from shortness of breath and flu-like symptoms a week ago. If you don't see the seriousness of this virus, I suggest you do so now and take the necessary precautions to keep safe, it could happen to anyone.
Rest in Power Pheko Kgengoe! Tributes are pouring in on social media;
Wow! I am so saddened. Man you had such go after leaving Sony and going on your own, you blossomed and realized so much of your potential. Am so sad because you are leaving behind such a young child.

The last message that Pheko shared with us was that we need to take the necessary precaution. He sent us the message on Saturday evening. This morning we learn about his passing. #RIPPheko— Sechaba (@Sechaba_K) June 30, 2020
Pheko was such an amazing amazing elite human being. The most cheerful and always supportive kind of person you literally don’t find those kind of folks a lot anymore. How wife and kid were his world ????— Kea Motlokwa (@KeaMotlokwa) June 30, 2020
