Sources close to the musician confirmed he died in an Edenvale hospital in the early hours of this morning. The Ndixolele hitmaker was moved to ICU on Monday after his condition took a turn for the worse. Insiders confirmed that the singer was placed on oxygen machines as his liver “had practically stopped working”
Despite the dire situation his family remained hopeful that “God’s intervention” would help get him through the ordeal and called on the nation to pray for him. Lundi was first admitted to hospital in December after returning from a trip to China.
A vigil was held in the Central Methodist Church in Johannesburg last night and friends close to the gospel star told TshisaLIVE that while Lundi’s condition was serious, they believed in the power of prayer.
“We got the call just after one am this morning. We are all shocked. We never expected this to happen. The family is taking it very hard,” said his manager Anele Hlazo.
The Ndixolele hitmaker has been in and out of hospital since December after being diagnosed with stomach TB and liver complictions. His condition took a turn for the worse on Monday and he was moved to ICU and put on life support.
Despite this, friends close to the star have told TshisaLIVE they were convinced he would pull through. “We are all shocked. He is a fighter. He fought this thing so hard. We thought he would win,” said the insider.
