South Africa mourns opera diva, 50

There has been an outpouring of tributes for Pinkie Mtshali, a singer and impresario who has died at 50 of an unknown cause.

Trained as an opera singer, she formed the Durban Divas, a group which looked after all aspects of stage production. She also starred at the Durban International Film festival, where she played several characters in the movie ‘The Sunflower.’ She won national awards for her role as Mrs Matshinga in ABBA MANIACS, a show that toured South Africa for three years.
