Gaaratwe said that Joe would be missed on the show and paid tribute to his professionalism.
“He really looked after his craft. He would stay up until three in the morning studying his scripts and would then report only a few short hours later on set. He never complained and there were no diva moments with him. He was our elder and we are realising now how unique he was.
“We are so grateful to have witnessed his professionalism and are sad to have lost him at a time when his star was not only still shining but was very much on the rise,” Gaaratwe added.
Joe died in a car accident in Johannesburg on Saturday night. News of his death sent shockwaves across the country.
