The year 2021 has been tough for the media industry. In March we learned of the untimely passing of Sasa Klaas and many people were left devastated by the news. The rapper who was at the peak of her career at the time of her passing perished in a helicopter crash in the Central Kalahari Game Reserve (CKGR). The tragic incident took place in March 2021 leaving everyone heartbroken.
Sasa had a successful career working with numerous heavyweights in the Botswana music industry. She was described as a loving person by Nature Inger at her memorial service.
"Sasa was so loving and such a best friend to her mom that people often thought they were sisters that was the relationship she had, she was someone that reminded you to live and to love every single day, she was clingy as a friend and call you and be like "excuse me b**** you haven't told me you love me," she said.
