Fam,I’m touched at the passing of Sibusiso Radebe. Y’all would remember him as Vusi from Backstage. One of the greatest ‘child stars’ to have emerged in SA and a legend at his craft. You inspired many including myself & fought a good fight. Rest easy my King😢#RIPSibusisoRadebe pic.twitter.com/6ZsMFo4aVm
