Hip-hop artist ProKid dies

Hip-hop artist Linda Mkhize died on Wednesday night in Johannesburg after suffering a severe seizure at the age of 37.

His family released a statement confirming his death saying that he suffered seizures while visiting friends.

Setswana Hip-hop artist HHP paid tribute to Mkhize saying that he was selfless, ever willing to share his skills with other artists.

He was very much about upliftment, pushing younger artists. He wasn't so much focused on recording his own material and making a come back like everyone was really anticipating. He was all about helping younger artists getting themselves out there.

He was doing a lot of ghostwriting jobs which I found very odd because most artists are very stingy with their work they will never share with anybody else.

HHP, SA rapper

For him to write music for other rappers shows that he was a very empathetic person.
