KHUZANI “King Khuba” Mpungose was the first maskandi artist to fill up the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban last year.

He became the first maskandi artist last month to introduce a cellphone app.

He launched the Khuzani Funeral Plan on Monday!

He said he was planning to introduce the funeral plan to fans on social networks due to lockdown rules.

Khuzani, nominated for a Best Maskandi Album Sama, said he wanted to put a stop to the myth that you die early if you have a funeral plan.

Khuzani told Daily Sun it always hurt him to hear someone had died yet the family couldn’t afford a burial.

“I think this affordable funeral plan will be a solution,” he said.

Khuzani, whose fans call themselves the Blue Nation, always wins two thirds of votes when maskandi fans have to vote for their favourite artist at big festivals.

“I know many black people still believe in the myth that they’ll die early if they have a policy, and this should stop,” he said.

My funeral plan is affordable and allows a person to include six people on it while paying the same amount.”

Khuzani said he was working with funeral plan company 3Sixty Life, and more information was available on social networks. His fan leaders were ready to help on WhatsApp groups.

“I want to put my fans first, and I ask that they make use of this opportunity so they’re ready when death comes.

This plan comes with many benefits like R200 electricity, R200 in airtime and a courtesy car for three days.”
