DEATH OF ALFRED SHAZI (article first published : 2001-10-16)

The BAT Centre has announced the passing of valued team member Alfred Gugulethu Shazi on October 9, 2001. He leaves behind a young son, Wonder Boy Shazi.

A self-taught sound technician, Alfred's skills and dedication became widely known throughout Durban music circles since he joined the BAT Centre in 1997. Through working on the technical production of hundreds of BAT Centre, Bandwagon Africa, Gearhouse and Sound Crew concerts, Alfred gained extensive knowledge of all aspects and scenes within both the Durban and wider South African music scene. He was well-known to musicians, promoters and audience alike.

"The passing away of Alfred represents a huge loss for the BAT Centre. One that we will feel for quite a while. He was extremely dedicated to his work and indeed to the Centre. Anyone who has ever worked at the Centre will say that Alfred could always be relied upon," said Nise Malange, Managing Trustee of the BAT Centre.

A memorial service will be held at BAT Hall on October 18 at 17h00. The funeral will be held on October 20 in Riverdene. More information from the BAT Centre on (031) 332-0451.
