CLUB wheel-spinner Paddington “DJ Bounty” Companier who died in South Africa on May 5 was buried yesterday at Mbudzi cemetery in Harare.
DJ Bounty is said to have succumbed to a lung cancer and he was 30.
One of DJ Bounty’s companions Tinashe “Fadiga” Alfonso of Mbare Boyz Entertainment said financial impediments caused them to take more than a fortnight to make burial arrangements.
He, however, said he is grateful for everyone who chipped in to help the burial arrangements.
“The burial was delayed because there wasn’t enough money to repatriate the body of DJ Bounty to Zimbabwe.
“I am thankful to those who helped the burial to be possible, such as people in Kempton Park, Mbare Boyz Entertainment, Gracious Givers Foundation, Boss Vhusi, people from church, friends and family like his uncle Cliff.
“They all contributed with what they can to make it possible.
“Rest In Peace DJ Bounty you will be forever missed,” said Fadiga.
DJ Bounty will be remembered for playing a role to spread the Zimbabwean culture and music across the Limpopo.
According to Fadiga, DJ Bounty is one of the first wheelspinners to promote Zim dancehall on the streets of Johannesburg with the likes of Eman Empire, Sister Emma, Elder Wonder, Big Father among others.
DJ Bounty survived by his wife Sharleen Mushangazhike and two children Tanaka and Kelly.
