SABC3 and Top Billing are mourning the loss of beloved presenter Simba Mhere.

Simba died in a car crash in Joburg on Saturday Januray 31.

'He had a disarming ability to win over a star or strangers he had never met'

"Simba was an exceptional person and a hugely, talented presenter," the channel and lifestyle show said in a joint statement. "He had a disarming ability to win over a star or strangers he had never met, as if they were a personal friend."

His warm heart, generous spirit, and wonderful sense of humour, has touched the lives of so many. He was an asset to Top Billing, and we feel privileged to have shared in his journey."

Top Billing will air a tribute to the 26-year-old, on Thursday February 5 at 8.30pm.

There will also be a memorial service and funeral held this week, which will be open to the public.

Many thanks to the many friends, viewers and associates who have expressed their condolences.
