Former Big Brother Mzansi housemate Rethabile ‘Dinky Bliss‘ Potsane will reportedly be cremated. Her friend and entertainment commentator Phil Mphela made this announcement on his Twitter account saying her funeral service will be taking place on November 23rd at her paternal home in the Vaal, Gauteng. While many others speculate that she committed suicide, Phil debunked this and said she died of unnatural causes.

Dinkybliss passed away on November 14 at the Hillbrow Clinic. It was public knowledge that she was struggling with depression however she did not commit suicide.

According to Zimoja, her manager revealed that she was taken to the clinic after complaining about a fever.

“This happened so suddenly. She was fine and only complained of a fever. On Friday Dinky had a mild fever. Saturday, it became worse until her neighbours suggested they take her to the doctor. She was with her two-year-old son in her apartment in Kempton Park. We didn’t think it was anything serious, it was like any other fever with coughing and headaches. The neighbours also have kids, so they took him and he was playing with other kids, and they distracted him while taking her to the clinic,” said Bukhosi Heshu.

Heshu said it would be difficult to break the news to her son, “This is indeed a loss for her family and the entertainment industry. The son would visit the grandmother. Breaking the news to him will be very difficult. The family is still coming to terms with everything that’s happened, and we need to give them time,” Heshu concluded. The late Metro FM and Daily Thetha anchor Pearl Shongwe had a memorial service just recently. She died a few days before Dinkybliss and her death was confirmed by the South African Broadcasting Commission (SABC).

Pearl Shongwe died in her sleep at her Polo Fields home in Johannesburg.

“The SABC has learned through the family of Pearl Shongwe that she has sadly passed away. The SABC extends its heartfelt condolences to the Shongwe Family.”

“Words cannot explain how great a loss it is for Metro FM of this beautiful, vibrant, and intelligent woman. It was a privilege to work with Pearl and for those who had the opportunity to meet her. She was a rising star, and still had a lot to offer in the industry. We wish to send our condolences to the family, her colleagues, our listeners, and everyone who was close to her. She may be gone from our sight, but never from our hearts.”
