Tshabalala died from an epileptic seizure on Monday. He was 45 years old.
In an interview with News24, Tshabalala's sister, Kutloano, said her older brother's epileptic seizures stemmed from a severe brain injury he sustained in his 2001 car accident.
Tshabalala, Mabalane and Zwai Bala rose to fame in the 1990s after forming the iconic TKZee and releasing the group's first album Halloween in 1998.
