Johannesburg- The Soil's Buhle Mda is currently mourning the death of her brother.
The sad announcement was made by the group on Instagram on Thursday night.
The Acapella Group have apologised to fans, as they will not be able to make their performances that were inititially scheduled for this weekend.
They have asked for fans to bear with them and respect to Buhle in this difficult time.
Our thoughts are with you, Buhle.
We, The Soil, are heartbroken that we will not be able to honour our commitment to perform at this weekend festival in UMthatha. This is as a result of Buhle's having lost a family and someone very close to her. We understand the disappointment we may have caused to our family - The Soil Family - and a great inconvenience to the promoter who badly wanted us to grace his festival. We will be with Buhle during this difficult time as we pay our last respect to her brother. We hope you will find in our hearts to forgive us. We love you The Soil Fam!!!
