The late Jabulani Thamsanqa “Jigga Money” Zama, owner of the Eyadini Lounge, was honored by the Wololo singer on her social media platforms. Jabulani’s family released a statement on Sunday morning confirming the businessman’s loss and praising him as “an amazing soul, full of love, joy.” He passed away from a stroke, and his family has begged for privacy as they grieve. Eyadini will be temporarily shuttered till further notice, the family announced.
Friends and coworkers have experienced the grief of losing a loved one together. Babes Wodumo expressed her sorrow on social media saying “RIP Baba wami. Eyadini Lounge iPhone lapho ku Mnyeni wami (send my greetings to my husband).”
She also tells afromambo that her career highlights were performing at his establishment, Eyadini. “My career began at places like Eyadini because of ubaba. He supported Durban and KZN artists and took care of us as though we were his family.” Babes says she has lost people close to her and she is learning to cope. “Losing people close to you is not easy, and I am still coming to terms with all these deaths.”

Other friends remember the businessman as kind and giving. DJ Happygal Ndlovu writes on social media, “RIP Mphathi. ubuthanda ukuba hands-on kwi business lakho (You loved being hands-on in your business).” Close friends and photographer, Sandile Makhoba says, “Thank you Jigga Money” for ithuba nemfundiso (opportunities and lessons).” Sandile goes to say that he and Jabulani spent years working together. “He was like a brother to me. We travelled together and did amazing projects. He was kind, generous and gave people many opportunities. He created employment for thousands of people and his legacy will not be forgotten.”
Jabulani was hospitalized last year for gout, a complicated form of arthritis characterized by frequent spells of excruciating pain, swelling, redness, and tenderness in one or more joints, most frequently the big toe. Obesity, high blood pressure, and/or diabetes are the usual culprits. It is frequently brought on by a poor diet. Despite being one of the richest businessmen in Durban, the meat king occasionally struggled with money and had to put his opulent Rolls-Royce Phantom and Mercedes-Benz AMG GLE 63 up for auction. He sold these in order to pay off his debt; they were estimated to be worth at least R8 million. He acknowledged owing millions of Rands to SA Revenue Service (Sars) and had made arrangements to settle the debt.
