The African National Congress (ANC) in the Eastern Cape received the news of the passing of radio personality and gospel artist , Bulelani Koyo with shock and sadness. We join the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) family, Umhlobo Wenene FM and the music industry in mourning the loss of this giant of the airwaves.
Renowned gospel artist and extra-ordinary communicator, Bulelani played an outstanding role in the education and development of both young and old through his radio work.
The date 4th July 2022 will be forever etched on the consciousness of South Africa. It is a day to which South Africans will forever refer and say what they were doing when they heard the news that Bulelani Koyo , a true son of the soil, was no more.
BK as he was affectionately known inspired all of us with his wit, charm and never-failing professionalism. He appealed to people of all ages and across the spectrum.
His untimely passing is a reminder that we have many wonderful gems in our public broadcaster whose presence we take for granted. Let us remember him and the many others who make our country the truly great nation it is. His work serves to inspire a generation of presenters.
As South Africans, let us honour his memory by being the best at what we do in making this country a truly great and prosperous nation.
The ANC sends its heartfelt condolences to his family, friends, Umhlobo Wenene FM, the entire SABC and the music industry. We hope they will find solace in the knowledge that the whole nation shares their grief. We wish them strength and fortitude during this difficult time.
Lala ngoxolo BK , Jwarha, Mtika, Mazaleni, Jotela, a committed son of South Africa.
