He was shot dead in Lentegeur, Cape Town, on Wednesday night.

According to Western Cape police spokesperson Siyabulela Malo, Ceeh was reportedly dropping off passengers when the incident occurred.

“It is apparent that the victim was about to drop passengers in the area when three unknown men approached his vehicle and fired one shot to his neck and he totally lost the control of his vehicle,” said police spokesperson Siyabulela Malo as quoted by News24.

Hailing from Zimbabwe – and having changed his surname Chifamba to his stage name – Ceeh was in his early 30s. He was Durham Studios in Woodstock and before that Deen Channel.

Deen Channel CEO Faizel Sayed says staff are devastated by his death.


“I have no words to explain what my staff and I are currently going through. I cannot imagine what is going through his mom’s mind right now. We had so many good times with Ray. I just don’t know what to say,” said an emotional Sayed.

Circumstances leading to his death are currently being investigated by the police and no arrest has been made at this stage.

He was 32.

The motive for the murder is not known and investigations are under way.
