It's a hard time for the Masilela family, who are dealing with a double whammy - the death of both popular actor Dumi Masilela (31), who died this morning following a hijacking, and the sudden death of his aunt.

"They've taken the rhythm out of Rhythm City, secondly to the industry, how many more should we lose?"

According to NYDA Executive Chairperson, Sifiso Mtsweni "The passing of Dumi Masilela has shocked all of us, as we were excited after receiving his confirmation to be part of our inaugural youth in the arts dialogue".

Suspects who shot and killed actor Dumi Masilela were driving a Jeep Wrangler hijacked in Daveyton that same Wednesday evening, the Kempton Express reported.

"They tried to drive off but the black jeep followed and the occupants opened fire".

Masilela was driving in the auto with a friend at the time of the incident.
