Constantinos Tsobanoglou known famously as Costa Titch was a famous South African rapper who tragically died at 28.
Costa was onstage performing, and suddenly he had a seizure (because of strobing lights), fell off the stage, and get rushed to a nearby hospital and that’s where he was pronounced dead.
This happens when South Africans and the globe, in general, mourn the loss of Kiernan Jarryd Forbes also known as AKA who was fatally shot earlier this year.
