The late partner of Yendmanuel Gonzale, also known as Manu G who died tragically earlier this week, has started a GoFundMe page in order to pay for costs and repatriate his body back to Venezuela to be reunited with his family.
“Any help is more than welcome.”
Earlier this week, Gonzale fell three storeys to his death into a private courtyard. He was taken to Mater Dei where he eventually succumbed to his injuries. The autopsy is still underway.
Unfortunately, Manu had no life insurance and his family cannot afford to bring his body back home in order to bury him.
Within less than 24 hours, the GoFundMe page amassed almost all the money needed in order to repatriate Manu’s body back home, in order to give him the proper funeral he deserves and to reunite him with his family.
Manu G, which was his stage name, was a popular artist amongst the local community and often worked with different musicians in the scene.
The news was met with an outpour of grief and support. Friends and family posted on social media to express their shock at the news.
Local DJ and producer Cyprian Cassar took to Facebook to share his sadness and said that Manu was a good soul and was very passionate about making music, with a smile on his face throughout.
Another friend of his said, “Manu, you had a dream to fly high, to be a successful singer. Alone, without family in Malta, you fought for a better life, you were friendly, caring, thoughtful, open smile, optimistic, believe in yourself, but always put God first.”
