A post by Jojwayo Mrwebi, aptly titled:
could not have been written at a better time, like it was a premonition of Vuyo Mbuli‘s passing almost a month after it (the post) was published. Vuyo, the veteran broadcaster who died at his prime 8 days ago now, grew his following by a further 8K posthumously.
In Joji’s post, he advises on what netizens must do to ensure their online personal brands are taken care of after they die.
