Johannesburg - Talented musician Lebo Mathosa has been laid to rest.

"The service went well and hundreds of people attended," said her manager, Linzy Cowley, on Saturday.

Fans, family and friends gathered at the Benoni city hall to pay their final respects.

Lebo Mathosa, 29, was killed in an accident on the N3 near Germiston early on Monday, when her driver lost control of a Toyota Prado and crashed into a tree.

The 20-year-old driver was uninjured and has made an affidavit to the police about the event.

A memorial service at the Sandton Convention Centre on Thursday saw scores of friends and family paying their last respects to Mathosa.

Mathosa shot to fame in 1994 as a member of kwaito group Boom Shaka and released her first solo album in 2000. She has appeared in a number of South African soapies and has won numerous awards.
