Johannesburg, South Africa
It is barely months since the passing of Kwaito legend Mshoza and Amapiano star GeeSixFive and already another artist has fallen, Pastor Israel Linda Mosehla, who passed on last night.
Though circumstances surrounding his death are not yet known, news of his passing came to light in the early hours of this morning.
His strong religious and musical background come from his parents, who were both preachers and musicians.
The family released three albums with Gallo in the ‘80s. In 1985 the star, together with his brother Isaiah Mosehla and two friends Bongani Matsobane and Jabu Nkabinde, formed a dynamic gospel Group called G-Effect.
The group released two albums produced by the legendary Sizwe Zako.
In addition, between 2003 and 2005, Mosehla and the G-Effect toured the US, Europe and Brazil.
The group also toured other countries including Zambia, Botswana, Swaziland, Lesotho, Senegal and Zimbabwe.
Mosehla later went solo, in 2007, Mosehla launched his own record label, Kgabo Music Productions, and released the album Endaweni Ephakeme during that period he worked with renowned artists such as Sipho Makhabane, Ringo Mkhari, Musa Malinga, Mxolisi and Musa Mngwenya.
As a solo singer he has released albums such as Worthy of My praise, Crown Him King, Live-Turning Point, God’s Sovereignty and Mopholosi Oaka Oaphela.
Gospel singer Nosipho Daniels, who once managed Mosehla, praised the late star for his exceptional talent of being able to touch people through his music.
““I met Israel around 2002 and at that time he was part of G-Effect. He has always been humble and soft spoken. He was just exceptionally talented when it comes to worshipping. He was one of the few artists who would worship God and manage to get me on my feet and I end up on my knees. See you in the morning, soldier,” said Daniels.
