Cape Town - Local rapper and former YoTV presenter Luther Yakanawa Cohen, known as Crazy Lu died on 8 November.

Crazy Lu first burst onto the entertainment scene when he hosted a popular kids programme X-Attitude, and he later became a member of rap group Jozi, with Bongani Fassie, Ishmael and Da Les.

The former TV personality died from an apparent asthma attack in Cambodia - where he has been residing for several years.

Speaking to Channel24 on Wednesday, Luther's brother, Marvin Cohen said that the former TV personality was cremated in Cambodia on Tuesday during a Buddhist ceremony and the family will be returning to South Africa with his ashes on Thursday.
