The Dlamini family spokesperson Tlhogi Ngwato confirmed the news to Channel24, saying: "He passed peacefully at hospital, surrounded by the love of his family. In this time of grief, we ask for privacy and the opportunity to celebrate him."

The statement also confirmed reports that the 29-year-old suffered a ruptured brain aneurysm which placed him on life support for 23 days.
