full blast in the background at the memorial service of Noxolo Maqashalala

Jub Jub’s hit song Ndikhokhele was on full blast within the background at the memorial service of Noxolo “Noxee” Maqashalala this afternoon. Several speakers at the Market Theatre in Newtown, Jozi, shared fond memories of their encounters with Noxee, describing her as a lady who loved God and other people. Her friend Zoy Binedell said: “She and that i were very close, and each time we spoke we did so for hours on end. “I’d even forget what I’d initially wanted to speak about. She was bubbly and filled with life. “Whenever I had a drag she always gave me a Bible scripture because she was a believer of God.” Zoy addressed talk that her family wasn’t there for her: she was discovered five days after her death. “She sent an SMS to her favourite pastor and me, saying she was fine and needed time to be with God. “When I acknowledged she’d died i used to be angry with myself and God because, maybe, I could’ve insisted on seeing her.” Pastor Khabo Nyikiza, who spoke on behalf of Noxee’s family, told mourners: “We were saddened by people that asked where her family was. “There was nothing wrong between Noxee and her family as she loved her space. “She was a toddler of God. As her family, we were very pleased with her, especially once we saw her on TV. “She also appeared on Jam Alley. at some point she asked me to concentrate to how she sang and that i asked if there wasn’t anything she could try besides singing.” The pastor said Noxee loved laughter and uplifted her people within the Eastern Cape. “There was a time when she left South Africa for Ireland to review psychology for five years. “But when she came back she went straight into acting and that we supported her. She wasn’t isolated from her family.” Renowned TV producer Rolie Nikiwe recalled a time when he was within the preproduction of SABC1’s Tsha Tsha, battling a Xhosa word and Noxee helped him. That sparked his interest in working together with her. “I fell crazy together with her as an ingenious person. She was 27 once I met her, and gifted,” said Rolie. He said he understood how unstable the show business is and felt she was short-changed. “I don’t think she got the popularity she deserved as an actress because she was gifted. “I don’t skills we grew apart. But once I called her sometimes she didn’t answer my calls. “I acknowledged she’d been isolating from people. psychological state is real and that we should mention it. The EC government should help their own.” Actress Baby Cele Maloka was among industry peers who paid tribute to her via video. Singer Zolani Mahola was attending. Noxee was buried last Friday within the Eastern Cape. -daily sun
