A well-known funeral parlour has reportedly confirmed that it did not hand over Oupa “DJ Sumbody” Sefoka’s death certificate to Kagiso Setsetse as per alleged 28s gang leader Ralph Stanfield’s claims.


Sunday World reports that the funeral parlour confirmed through a letter.

“In line with our internal burial process, death certificate are normally issued to the ‘informant’ (meaning individuals who initiated the burial process, normally the decease’s family and or close relatives). In this case we confirm that the death certificate was issued to Mr Koketso Sefoka on the 19th January 2023,” read the letter.

DJ Sumbody was gunned down along with one of his bodyguards in a hail of bullets in Woodmead, Johannesburg, while on their way to a gig on 20 November 2022.

According to Stanfield, who is at loggerheads with Setsetse over Ayepyep Lifestyle Cape Town, the businessman had taken out a R15 million life cover policy in DJ Sumbody’s name.

Setsetse and DJ Sumbody co-founded the popular Ayepyep Lifestyle lounges in Pretoria and Cape Town.

Further responding to Setsetse’s claims that he has highjacked the Cape Town establishment from him, Stanfield alleged that the entrepreneur obtained the death certificate without consent.

The late artist’s mother confirmed the death certificate was obtained without their permission.

Setsetse did not deny Stanfield’s allegations about the life cover. However, he said that it was an agreement he had made with his late friend.

“Me and Oupa had what we call a buy and sell insurance. So basically it is to cover a director in terms of death and the money is to be paid out to the family for the shares of the business. In other words, if I don’t wake up tomorrow, insurance will cover my shares and it will pay to my wife instead of her saying she is coming to work at Ayepyep,” Setsetse explain.

Investopedia describes business life insurance or “key person insurance” as a life insurance policy that a company purchases on the life of an owner, a top executive, or another individual considered critical to the business. The insurance offers a financial cushion if the sudden loss of a certain individual would profoundly negatively affect the company’s operations.
