Only hours after learning of the rapper’s passing, Costa Titch’s family paid tribute to the 28-year-old. His real name was Constantinos Tsobanoglou. On Saturday, March 12, 2023, while performing at the Ultra Music Festival, Costa Titch passed away after collapsing on stage.

Costa, a singer and dancer, was born in 1995 in Nelspruit, Mpumalanga, and is well known for his songs Nkalakatha and Activate. He has received numerous tributes, including from members of the music community.


The rapper and dancer’s family briefly state their sorrow over his demise and thank South Africans for their support.

“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”. We find ourselves having to acknowledge his passing at this time with deep pain. We are thankful for the emergency responders and all those who were present in his last hours on this earth. As a family, we are faced with a difficult time as we try to make sense of what has befallen us and ask that we be afforded the time and space to gather ourselves,” the family said.
