Ladysmith Black Mambazo founder, Joseph Shabalala’s memorial is to hold at the Standard Bank Arena at Ellis Park, Johannesburg on Thursday.

The memorial in Johannesburg will be followed by an official state funeral service at AG Magubane stadium on Saturday in his hometown, Ladysmith.


The iconic singer was confirmed dead on Tuesday last week at Life Eugene Marais Hospital in Tshwane at the age of 78, after a long illness.

After a memorial at Ladysmith Indoor Sports Centre on Tuesday, a service was held on Wednesday at the Durban Playhouse in KwaZulu-Natal.

Speaking at the memorial, Joseph’s daughter revealed that he was a disciplinarian, who was also loving to his children.
