ALL OF A SUDDEN
South African rapper Costa Titch passed away after collapsing on stage during a performance this past Saturday. He was performing at the Ultra Music Festival in South Africa and had everybody pumped up. As usual, he walked from one side of the stage to the other and he literally dropped to the ground. He was lifted by a person and stood up for a few seconds but was too weak to stay up and collapsed again.
His family issued a statement via Instagram. “It is with deep pain that we find ourselves having to acknowledge his passing at this time. We are thankful for those emergency responders and all those present in his last hours on this earth,” said his family. A cause of death hasn’t been revealed. The family did not share a cause of death.
HE WAS ONLY 28 YEARS OLD
The rapper, whose real name is Constantinos Tsobanoglou, was only 28 years old. Video of his set circulated on social media, showing him appearing to fall onstage. “We're thankful for the emergency responders and all those present in his last hours on this earth. As a family we are faced with a difficult time as we try to make sense of what has befallen us and ask that we be afforded the time and space to gather ourselves,” the statement said. “The Tsobanoglou family thanks you for the love and support you have given to our son and may you continue to uplift him even in spirit,” the tribute continued. “Please keep us in your prayers and uplifted in the Lord.” The festival gave a statement saying “We are devastated by the sudden loss of the beloved South African artist Costa Titch, who tragically passed away this weekend.”
