Durban based gqom sensation Biggie, was finally laid to rest yesterday in Kwamashu. The star died in hospital last week, after suffering from a chronic heart condition.
Videos of his funeral service have gone viral on social media, and with the lockdown restrictions underway, it is no surprise that peeps are accused of breaking the regulations.
On the videos, it seems as if social distancing, and the wearing of masks became a thing of the past at the funeral, as people can be seen without their masks, whilst turning up.
Biggie’s friend Dladla Mshunqisi, can be seen entertaining the crowd which is seemingly more than 50.

Here are the videos below.
