DJ Sumbody’s mother wrote a moving tribute to her son who was slain on Sunday morning. DJ Sumbody, real name Oupa John Sefoka was killed along with his bodyguard. It read:
“I don’t know where to begin. I had told myself that our road is long. I had hoped to see you married so I can be like other women who play with their grandchildren. God has a purpose for you my son. I felt an indescribable pain. I’m still shocked. We spent a long time together. I never imagined that I would be called with such disgusting news. I thank the time God and the Sefoka ancestors gave us. You made me proud and gave your family dignity.
I thought the things you were doing were just hobbies only to find that that was a gift from God. You were a light to your siblings. You showed that you can be someone in life even when you start with nothing. From being a taxi driver to a person who was always carrying heavy speakers and a back full of vynils, you knew what you were doing. You did well. Even though the heart is hurt at the fact you left too soon, the one with eyes sees that you did your part. Rest in peace. The lightning struck you dead but it is okay.”
