TV PRESENTER, actor and producer Zola Hashatsi’s mourning the death of veteran actor Jamie Bartlett.

The childhood star shared the good times he had with the late actor, who was known as David Genaro on the canned e.TV soapie Rhythm City.

The actor died on Monday afternoon, 23 May, at the age of 55.

He left many Mzansi celebrities and citizens with broken hearts. Zola walked down memory lane as he recalled how good Jamie was to him.

He shared that he never thought that they would have so much in common and be a family.

“This was 14 years ago and I was a skinny ass, big-headed, stuns-wearing child star on Crazyetv and promoting our new soapie Rhythm City. I went and sat down with the real Jamie Bartlett who played David Genaro,” he wrote on Instagram.

The presenter also thanked his then production team and his industry friends for giving him the opportunity.

Zola said his wish was to see his industry colleagues give the late actor a beautiful send-off.
