Late maskandi musician Mtshengiseni “Indidane” Gcwensa was known for having a unique style.
And with the unveiling of his tombstone on Sunday, it became apparent that even in death he hasn’t lost it.
The tombstone that was revealed at his homestead in Msinga, KZN impressed his fans with its glass sides and door. The impressive tombstone was donated by his long-time friend Vezokuhle Nala, who owns Amathole Funerals.
The event started with a cleansing ceremony to unite Indidane with his ancestors.
His brother Mlindeni Gcwensa said he had never seen a tombstone like Indidane’s before.
“He was stylish and unique. I’ve never seen a tombstone with a door at the front.”
Mlindeni thanked Vezokuhle for organising the event.
“He covered all the expenses, including the cow. We will never forget him. He’s part of the family now,” said Mlindeni.
Vezokuhle told the SunTeam that Indidane asked him to take care of his family before he died.
“We were close friends and he used to tell me everything. I used to hire him for all the events my company hosted,” he said.
He said he paid for the ceremony with the money he made from a maskandi festival in March. The unveiling cost a total of R85 000.
