Biggie’s friend Dladla Mshunqisi, took to Instagram this morning to express his shock and pay tribute to him.
“I’ve seen people losing friends but never in my wildest dreams did I think I’d ever loose you. Heaven has called you and I know that you’ve answered, but how can death not think how am I to carry on?”
“Since the frantic call came in telling me you are no more, my world came to a standstill, how was I supposed to go on knowing my journey has ended with you?” he wrote.
