However they add that his condition is not as critical as being reported on social media.

Gabriel Gaby Le Roux, his  friend said the star’s condition was ‘serious but not critical’. He cannot see but he can move around easily when guided.

Mandoza’s wife Mpho said he would appear at the 100 Artists for R100 Event at Orlando Stadium this Saturday. She further appealed for prayers from his friends and fans.

Mandoza rose to prominence with massive singles like Nkalakatha, Godoba, Tsotsi Yase Zola, 50 50  and Sgelekeqe among many making him one of South Africa’s most celebrated artists. He also suffered from a debilitating drug addiction.

Our thoughts are with him.
