The police told us he lost control.”The details of the accident, as recounted by Isack, are both tragic and perplexing. “My brother was a responsible driver who has never driven a car very fast.

His speed was always below 100 km/h,” he said, his voice filled with disbelief. “To find his car so badly damaged and to know he was killed while driving on a smooth road with no potholes, left us with many questions that no one will answer.”Another family member shared with Celeb Gossip News their suspicions of foul play, noting that Papi was a very responsible driver.Just four months ago, Papi Lethoba embraced his calling as a prophet and healer.

Papi Lethoba who died from the accident

In February, Lethoba spoke to Sedibeng Ster about his journey, detailing how popular producer and actor Nyembezi Kunene played a pivotal role in his career. “Acting has always been part of me, and since primary school, I was always a stage and attention person.

I started professionally acting for theatre plays and on-screen acting after my matric when I got to the Vaal and landed in the hands of Nyembezi Kunene through his agency, Dramatic Zone. I played several cameo roles for popular TV shows and some leads,” he said. Lethoba, born in the Free State, was also a prophet at Saint Moses Faith Healing Apostolic Church. He said he was more widely known for his spiritual work in his hometown than for his acting. “Growing up, I always loved attention. When there were prayer sessions at our school, funerals in our township, or church-related events, I was your go-to guy, little did I know this was a gift.

The day I took into consideration that I had a gift was when I had a spiritual epiphany at church. Since that day, I knew one day I would have to undertake initiation as a prophet,” he said, not knowing he was serving the last days of his life.Papi’s sudden passing has left a void in the Mzansi entertainment scene.

Sergeant Peter, Free State police spokesman, confirmed the accident. “On Sunday morning at R57 road near the R59 off-ramp, a vehicle lost control, and a 47-year-old male deceased was found next to the vehicle. Sasolburg police are investigating a culpable homicide case,” he said.The news of Papi’s death has sent shockwaves through the entertainment industry, with tributes pouring in from fellow actors, directors, and producers.

Many have taken to social media to express their grief and share memories of the talented actor.”Papi was a true professional, always bringing his A-game to every project,” said one director who worked with Papi on several productions. “He was a joy to work with, always positive and supportive.

He will be deeply missed.”Another actor, who shared the screen with Papi on multiple occasions, described him as a “kind and generous soul.” “He was always willing to help anyone in need, and he had a contagious laugh that could brighten anyone’s day,” he said. “He was a true friend and a great colleague.
