Curtains have closed on 67-year-old legendary soukous pop-star Aurlus Mabele after he got infected with coronavirus yet his immunity had been paralyzed by cancer.

Journalist Robert Brazza and Mabele’s nephew confirmed the death of Mabele in a Facebook post he made from Paris France paying his tribute to the Pop Star Icon.

“Hey, Uncle Aurlus! The young wolf I used to be will not forget your wise advice: “stay yourself little… and enjoy! ” Journalist Brazza posted.

“My sadness is great tonight but my gratitude is more. You were the pace, you were joy, you were the kindness. Forever. Go in peace Aurlus Mabelle. I know auntie Nzambi has already welcomed you in her great mercy,” the Journalist wrote.

Mabele is one of the 371 people who have now succumbed following the outbreak of the Covid-19 in France.

Mabele has been fighting throat cancer for the last almost fifteen years, a situation that made his immune system weak and unable to fight the coronavirus infection he got leading to his death.

France’s number of coronavirus infections is now reported to be at 10,995 from a previous 9,134 according to health agency director Jerome Salomon in the last 24 hours.

Coronavirus began in China in a state called Wuhan and has now spread to over half the Globe with Africa currently reporting over 700 deaths.

The World Health Organization (WHO) still expresses doubt in the manner in which Africa is responding to the crisis with a clear feeling the coronavirus is not being taken with the seriousness it ought to.

Mabele, one of the founders of the legendary supergroup Loketo (hips) band, was the first Paris-based soukous stars. Mabele will be remembered for his hit songs Liste Rouge, Embargo among many others.

Mabele is famed for his brand of soukous hits that traversed borders. He has sold more than 10 million albums worldwide. May the soul of Aurlus Mabele find eternal peace.
