Death has once again robbed us of a major South African artist in rap kingpin Linda "Prokid" Mkhize.
He was the pioneer of kasie rap, making delivery of lines in vernacular fashionable.
Prokid, without a doubt, can claim credit for being in the forefront of this rap movement, and giving a host of young rappers the freedom to perform in their mother tongue.
Despite having a successful music career and achieving a lot in such a short space of time, he remained smart, kind and humble, with a great sense of humour.
I would have told him all these things if he were still alive today.
You are gone but will not be forgotten Pro (as he was to be known as later in his career), as we'll always have your music to thank you for your contribution to SA's popular culture.
