Member of the etvScandal passed away. Njoli passed away on Sunday around 11 in the morning due to health problems.
The Cape Town resident, who was now 52 years old and hails from the neighborhood of Langa, has had brief stints at radio stations such as UCT Radio, GoodhopeFM, Heart 104.9fm, and Magic 828 AM.
However, he was best recognized for lending his voice to the advertisements broadcast on e.tv. Who among us has forgotten that recognizable voice saying things like “Tonight on e” and “Friday action night,” among other catchphrases?
Sharon Lause Mrawuli, who had been Njoli’s partner for the past 21 years, stated that he is survived by his daughter Tembisa Bavuma, who is 24 years old.
Mrawuli stated in an interview with IOL Entertainment that in recent years, Njoli has been “forgotten.”
She continued by saying, “I will miss his voice, of course, as well as his smile. He was the only friend I had, and we spent a lot of time together hanging out and listening to his old music. Because he was so humble, he was not the type of person to nurse grudges. It was clear to see when he was in love.
“His mother is still alive, and she is 92 years old; things are not going well with the family.”
“It seems that most people, including e.tv, had forgotten about him.”
According to a statement made by one of Njoli’s former coworkers, “For approximately 17 years, he served as the official voice of e.tv.
People really enjoyed his TV commercials. Then, in the most recent few years, he had a lot of trouble finding work, radio stations stopped working with him, and he was in a desperate situation.
I convinced him to participate in the new television program that we are producing at UWC called UWC On Air, and he was just as brilliant and polished as he had been in the past. He thought it was wonderful.
When we were recording voice-over sessions, I picked him up in Langa and dropped him off at home, so we had a lot of time to talk to each other.
“Only a month ago, we had a conversation about how challenging things were for him. He appeared weak and elderly, like a mere shadow of the man I once knew.
On social media, Njoli’s former coworkers and friends in the industry shared their fondest memories of him.
