It’s really a sad day for South African hip hop and music holistically. Today we woke up to the passing of the legendary emcee PRO.
According the rappers family statement, PRO died yesterday after suffering a seizure attack while paying some friends a visit.
On the outcry of losing this icon, most South African rappers have taken it to social media to express their sarrow in mourning PRO.
Check out some Tweets from AKA, Maggz, A-Reece, Cassper Nyovest and more.
REST IN PEACE TO ONE OF THE GREATEST TO EVER DO IT. Gave me my break as a producer, gave me my break as an artist … There will never be another PRO. ❤️ … shocking.

Rest In Peace 2 the greatest to ever do it. You gave us a voice! Your genius was well received at your prime but we failed to preserve&appreciate your legacy while you were still with us. It took your passing to remind me how much of an inspiration you were to me. #RipPro #Legend pic.twitter.com/8LkYP5wMkP

Praying the news is not true, but If it is then my brother I wish you safe passage into heaven. You were indeed a pioneer, a legend and one incredible Emcee. For the record I never considered you a ProKid but rather a ProKing! #RIPProKid #RipPRO #RIPLindaMkhize 🙏🏾 pic.twitter.com/XgG9GzixFv
