On her Instagram, Nina compiled moments she shared with Kuli in a video, and admitted the song choice might not have impressed the star if she were alive to witness it.

"I love you, Kuli. Your weird understood my weird. Your heart was as big as your bloody filing cabinets. You probably would have hated this song, and been like "Babe, come on. Where’s the Jennifer Rush?'

I love you Kuli," wrote Nina .Pabi hailed Kuli as a "fierce defender" and said she was "exceptional mother".

"My sister. Fierce defender. Thank you for the memories. Thank you for embodying true Ubuntu. I keep hearing your voice saying 'Mtana se khaya we are family'. Heaven is richer. You lived! I feel fortunate to have been in your orbit. I love you," wrote Pabi. TimesLIVE
