Well known entertainer, Taliep Petersen, was killed in his home in Athlone, late on saturday night. His murder is related to what appears to be an armed robbery attempt during which his safe was emptied and several electronic devices were stolen.


Petersen, aged 56, was buried on Sunday in accordance with Muslim rites while tributes to his life continued to pour in from all quarters.

The perpetrators escaped in an unidentified vehicle and are still at large.

Petersen, along with fellow artist David Kramer wrote several internationally acclaimed musicals including District Six: The Musical ; Kat and the Kings ; and Ghoema. Many of his other works have also gone on to achieve award-winning status.

His death leaves the community and the music industry in a state of shock.
