Because of the Covid-19 Lockdown, fans and friends could not properly say goodbye to their most loved actor. All the lockdown regulations during the funeral proceedings of popular the Skeem Saam actor and Thobela FM’s Mahlakung radio drama, Charles Maja were observed.
He was popularly known as Big Boy on the hit series Skeem Saam and we will definitely miss him…. The bad part is we as fans couldn’t say our goodbyes properly.
The funeral took place at his home in Kopermyn village, Ga-Maja outside Polokwane in Limpopo this morning. Police vans including a security company were outside to make sure that not more than 50 people attended. Villagers were also sanitised as they come in.
Big Boy was described as a man of many talents and a legend in the media industry. Limpopo Artist Movement chairman Mphoza Mashabela said they lost Maja on 9 April, the day they were celebrating the fourth anniversary of the movement.
Our celebration quickly turned into sorrow. We are very heartbroken because he was our pillar of strength. We call upon the Limpopo government to name either a street or building under him to honour him, said Mashabela.
Everyone was touched by his funeral and they were all sad. They said he put their village on the map and that they will never forget him. May his soul rest in peace, we are definitely going to miss him.
