What Happened to Costa Titch?
Costa Titch, a South African rapper, died unexpectedly this weekend on 12 march 2023, according to BBC, his family said on Instagram, just hours after performing at a music event. Constantinos Tsobanoglou, the musician’s given name, died at the young age of 28.
His family posted the following on Instagram: “Death has tragically knocked at our door.” Social media posts appeared to show Tsobanoglou falling on stage and having to be helped up by an assistant. Tsobanoglou then stands for what seems like several seconds until he collapses.
“It is with deep pain that we find ourselves having to acknowledge his passing at this time,” Tsobanoglou’s family said in a post on his Instagram. “We are thankful for those emergency responders and all those present in his last hours.”

The reason for death was not specified in the announcement. Ultra South Africa, the festival where he was scheduled to perform, said it was “devastated” by the news of the young rapper’s death. “Costa was a galvanizing voice within South Africa’s amapiano scene — a talented rapper, dancer, singer, songwriter, collaborator, and friend to the festival,” the statement said.
Tsobanoglou was one of the biggest stars of amapiano, a South African genre known for its deep house, log-drum-driven basslines, and soulful piano melodies. He was quickly becoming a phenomenon there.
