Details of actress and comedian Lebohang Mpyana, famously known as ‘Khelina’ from Mzansi Magic’s ‘DiepCity,’ memorial service have been released. The actress died after a short illness which her family confirmed in a statement.
“Lebo died after a short illness. We ask that you keep us in your thoughts and prayers in this time of bereavement. Memorial service and funeral service details will follow,” read the statement.
Her family announced that her life will be celebrated at a memorial service in her hometown at the Library Gardens Auditorium in Polokwane on Wednesday, November 8.
“Through her art, she touched many souls and left an ineffaceable mark. Her creativity will live on in the beauty she left behind… Let’s come together to commemorate a life well lived.”
Mpyana’s memory will also be celebrated in Johannesburg by the Black Brain family. “Together, we will pay tribute to Lebohang’s beautiful spirit that enriched our lives.
“Let’s pause to remember her infectious laughter, genuine kindness, and the profound impact she had on each of us. Join us in embracing her legacy and reminiscing the joyous moments we shared.
“It will be a time to unite, providing solace for one another and find comfort in remembering the extraordinary person Lebohang was.”
Both venues have limited seating, with the Polokwane memorial being streamed on Mahuma Group Facebook page. Mpyana rose to fame with her funny online videos and her role on ‘DiepCity’ as Khelina put her on the main stage.
