Rapper Costa Titch dies at 28 on stage.

Saturday evening, we lost a very talented artist and inspiration to many all over; Costa Titch, who passed away after collapsing on stage while he was performing at the Ultra South Africa Concert in Johannesburg. His family confirmed it on Instagram with a post that quotes. “Death has tragically knocked at our door. Robbing us of our beloved son, brother, and grandson, Constantinos Tsobanoglou (28), who South Africa had come to love and idolize under his stage name “Costa Titch”. It is with deep pain that we find ourselves having to acknowledge his passing at this time.” 

There is no current confirmation that says what took Costa Titch so soon. However, many people have suspicions after what happened to his friend and coworker, AKA passing last month, after being shot in a restaurant in Durban, South Africa. 

Costa Titch was born in Nelspruit, South Africa, where he started performing as a backup dancer before he found his way into rap music. Costa Titch has been known and loved for intertwining traditional South African culture with trap beats and jazzy flairs. One of his most famous songs was “Big Flexa,” Which went viral on TikTok in 2021.

Costa Titch made a significant mark on many people worldwide at the age of 28, and the world was not ready to let go of him.

Titch and AKA released an album in 2021 called “You’re Welcome.”  The album contains eight songs, with a total of 25 minutes, including one of my favorite songs, “Sugar.”
