Bongani Fassie On How He Wasted R4 Million On Drugs. Bongani Fassie, Brenda Fassie‘s son, is still occasionally mentioned in the press for his life and how he used the money his mother left him before she passed away.
Upon her passing, the music icon reportedly left Bongani tens of millions. The bequest was held in a trust for him to inherit when he reached adulthood because he was still a young child at the time. Now that the youngster is grown up, the wealth has virtually been spent.
Where did the money go?
That is a question that has persisted for as long as anyone can recall. It is well known that Bongani struggled with drug abuse. But the singer provided some perspective for it all in a recent episode of his reality show “I Blew It.”
He did, in fact, blow it. He once spent R4 million on drugs at some point in his life. Yup. That was his own admission. It might be challenging to break a drug habit, for one thing. You continually finding yourself returning to the habit’s orbit.
Son of the late Brenda Fassie, a renowned South African pop singer, Bongani Fassie is a musician from South Africa also known as Bongani Fassie-Ndlovu. As a singer, songwriter, and producer, Bongani Fassie rose to prominence in the late 1990s and early 2000s.
In order to pursue a career in music, Bongani Fassie did as his mother did. His 2005 first album, “Sgubu Se Zion,” garnered favorable reviews and yielded a number of popular songs. Kwaito, Afro-pop, and dance music are all present in his compositions.
In addition to his solo career, Bongani Fassie has worked with other South African musicians, appearing on songs by Mandoza and DJ Cleo, among others. He has a devoted following and has played at numerous music festivals and events in South Africa.
Even if Bongani Fassie’s notoriety has declined lately, his involvement with South Africa’s music scene and his link to his mother’s history are still very important.
