Moments after Namibian Kwaito sensation won the Channel O Music Award on Saturday in South Africa, one of his dancers; Elton Mulisa was overrun by his bandmate Lisweni Simasiku in a celebration that went out of control.
Mulisa popularly known as Brox died this evening at a local hospital where he has been fighting for his life since Saturday.
 Ees real name Eric Sell defeated top South African artists Kabelo, Big Nuz and compatriot The Dogg for the coveted African award with the song ‘Ayoba’ which he collaborated with South African kwaito legend Mandoza.
As they celebrated across Windhoek, Mulisa and Simasiku got embroiled in an argument over “something to do with the awards, to the extent that they started fighting,” The Villager was informed by a family member.
The scuffle occurred out Windhoek’s Central Hospital. It is alleged that Mulisa threw a brick that smashed the windscreen of the vehicle they were driving in, and in a moment of fury, Simasiku drove straight onto his bandmate who is also his cousin.
He was admitted in the ICU until today (Wednesday) when he passed on, this evening.
It could not be ascertained whether both were intoxicated but Simasiku, stage name, Zux is currently in police custody, charged with driving under the influence and attempted murder.
Ees left for his Germany base on Tuesday but is now expected to return to Namibia for the burial.
Mulisa and Simasiku are part of the five member dancing group recruited by Ees in 2009 when his stars began shining brighter, the same year that he won the MTV Award for Best Listeners’ Choice.
Both dancers stayed at the same house in Rocky Crest where mourners are gathered.
