The day that the entire nation has been dreading has arrived.
Friends, family, fans and the entertainment world will gather today to pay their last respects and bid farewell to one of SA's most loved personalities.
Funeral proceedings are expected to start at 9am until 11am, at Rhema Bible Church. Thereafter Simba will be laid to rest at Hero's Acre at Westpark Cemetery.
Simba will definitely be remembered for his larger than life personality, his unconditional love for people, his zest for life and ofcourse that infectious smile that could light up a room.
In his own words, he was: "Half man, half amazing."
May his soul rest in peace.
