Much loved gospel star and pastor Israel Mosehla has died at the age of 50-years-old on Monday 11 January, his family has confirmed.
Details surrounding the ‘Ke Utlwa Lerato’ hitmaker’s death are thus far not clear. Tributes have been pouring in online for the gospel legend after the news of his death hit social media.
On Monday, Mosehla’s wife, Millicient Mosehla, said that a family spokesperson will soon be appointed to share further details on the tragic death, but confirmed that her husband had indeed passed on.
“Yes, Israel has passed on,” Millicent said.
Born in Soweto in 1970 to a family of worshippers, Mosehla was fated to a life of music and praise. He and his family released a series of albums in the 80’s with record label Gallow, before he formed a dynamic gospel group called G. Effect with his brother, Isaiah Mosehla, and two friends — Bongani Matsobane and Jabu Nkabinde.
As a solo artist, Mosehla won several awards, including Best Praise Album for Praise and Worship Encounter with Israel Mosehla at the Crown Gospel Music Awards.
Many within the gospel community are in mourning following the news, with SAfm presenter Khanyi Magubane saying that “the gospel industry will never be the same again”.
“I will always fondly remember the interviews I did with you many times on SAfm and you were always passionate about your calling and ministry. Thank you for the rich legacy of music you’ve left us with, she tweeted.
