Popular South African TV presenter, whose real name was Vinolia Mashego died on Monday.
The 56-year-old star, who was a presenter on Jam Alley, was allegedly found dead in her home in Mamelodi, Tshwane, by her father.
The whole family was said to have been trying to reach her since Sunday with no luck.
Thabo Mashego, the deceased’s brother who broke the sad news said family members thought she was busy shooting.
“Our father then decided to go check up on her at her place as she still was not returning our calls’, said Mashego
“When our father arrived, there was no answer and he had to forcibly gain access into the house. After gaining entry, that is when he discovered my sister had passed on at her home”.
The cause of her death is still unknown.
At the time of her death, Vinolia had just landed a gig on Moja Love’s prank show, ‘Bheka Sikubambile’ as a presenter.
