The Rich Gang boss, who has been on life support at Steve Biko Hospital in Pretoria is said to have breathed his last in the wee hours of Thursday morning.
Ivan suffered a stroke about 2 weeks ago that left him paralyzed. He underwent surgery to remove a blood clot on his brain but it was not enough to save his life.
He was eulogised by his baby mama and ex-wife, Zari Hassan, who revealed that he was a charming person. She said, “God loves those that are special and that’s exactly who you were & I guess that’s why he wanted you to himself. You have touched and helped thousands, you did wonders and I remember you telling me “life is too short let me live it to the fullest”, this very dark hour it makes sense why you always said those words to me. To your sons, you were a hero-some kind of superman. Anyone who has ever been in your presence knows what a charming person you were. You will be missed and remembered in so many ways. You were IVAN THE GREAT!“
Ivan who was famous for his flashy lifestyle died aged 39 and is survived by three sons.
