The rumours that were circulating about how he died from a fatal gunshot wound are not true. Prokid died from a severe seizure
ProKid was a 37-year-old musical genius from Soweto. His tongue-twisting lyrical delivery and his punchlines were a staple of his brand.
ProKid brought a different type of freshness that had never been seen before. A kid from Soweto that went against the grain and rapped in vernacular. His dialect was fresh, his lyricism was on point, and he had a relatable kasi look.
Times Live disclosed that ProKid’s family released a statement early Thursday morning, their first since he passed on.
An excerpt of the statement reads:
The legendary SA hip-hop artist affectionately known as ProKid … passed away on Wednesday. He suffered a severe seizure attack while visiting friends and paramedics were called in to assist.
