AKA, Proverb & More React To The Passing Of Prokid! Prokid is one of the few people who played an important role in a number of rappers careers today.
A lot of the South African rappers had a personal bond with Prokid especially those in his generation whilst some were rappers he helped in their come up like AKA and Gigi Lamayne. Although a lot of rappers knew Pro on a personal level, there were some who only knew him as fans of his music since he was a pioneer of the genre.
“From Le Club to Slaghuis to YFM to Soweto to Loxion Kulture to Backpack Rap to Gallo to IV League to TS Records to Dankie San to Rap Battles to the Charts to Superstardom to one of the best to ever do it. I am leaving a lot out. Horrible news.
#RIPProKid,” tweeted Stogie T.

Praying the news is not true, but If it is then my brother I wish you safe passage into heaven. You were indeed a pioneer, a legend and one incredible Emcee. For the record I never considered you a ProKid but rather a ProKing! #RIPProKid #RipPRO #RIPLindaMkhize ?? pic.twitter.com/XgG9GzixFv
