When the news of Clicks closing down its Musica stores we all got really nostalgic. It's the end of an era for many South Africans who reflected on all the time we spent listening to albums at the store through those headphones that everyone shared - an act that we all can't fathom these days.

Zweli, Mantsoe, and Shan shared the news and it sparked a major nostalgic journey throughout the city.

Clicks has announced that it is closing its Musica entertainment outlets at the end of May.

Nineteen Musica stores have been shut since the start of the group's current financial year and the remaining 59 will close as their leases come to end in the coming months.

Musica managed to outlive most of its rivals but couldn't win the fight against the growing popularity of online music and entertainment platforms, including the likes of Apple Music, Spotify and Netflix.
