South African Rapper, 28, Dies after Collapsing on Stage - WATCH

A South African rapper Costa Titch died over the weekend after collapsing on stage at a music festival.

Costa Titch, real name Constantinos Tsobanoglou, was just 28 years old.

The rapper was performing a set at the Ultra South Africa on Saturday when horrified fans witnessed him collapsing on stage.

The musician’s family issued a statement following their son’s death:

“Death has tragically knocked at our door. Robbing us of our beloved son, brother and grandson, Constantinos Tsobanoglou (28), who South Africa had come to love and idolize under his stage name ‘Costa Titch.’ It is with deep pain that we find ourselves having to acknowledge his passing at this time.

We are thankful for the emergency responders and all those present in his last hours on this earth.”

As a family we are faced with a difficult time as we try to make sense of what has befallen us and ask that we be afforded the time and space to gather ourselves.

The Tsobanoglou family thanks you for the love and support you have given to our son and may you continue to uplift him even in spirit. Please keep us in your prayers and uplifted in the Lord,” the statement concluded.

The authenticity of the videos circulating of the rapper’s collapse was confirmed by USA Today.

CNN added that Costa Titch enjoyed success across his country with his song “Big Flexa,” which was a hit on TikTok.

Ultra South Africa released a statement following the rapper’s death:

“We are devastated by the sudden loss of the beloved South African artist Costa Titch, who tragically passed away this weekend.”

“Costa was a galvanizing voice amongst South Africa’s amapiano scene – a talented rapper, dancer, songwriter, collaborator, and friend to the festival,” the statement said.

“Our deepest thoughts and most sincere sympathies are with his family, friends, and our entire community who are together mourning this heartbreaking loss.”

Throughout 2022, reports of singers collapsing on stage or canceling tours have become more common. Last year, The Daily Fetched documented a list of performers who have died because of health-related issues.
