In a media statement issued by on behalf of Lulu’s family, Sony Music Entertainment Africa and Sound African Recordings said: “The Dikana family wish to thank all friends, fans and fellow musicians for their heartfelt support and words of comfort at this time of deep sorrow.

"As a young girl under her father’s guidance, the late Viva Dikana, Lulu learnt the art of perfection in her craft and approached her work with meticulous standards, with an intricacy often beyond the casual listener.”

Her last live performances were three opening dates for John Legend’s Johannesburg leg of 'The All of Me Tour' in November 2014.

A month earlier, Lulu had released her album ‘I Came To Love’ (06 Oct 2014) which documents some powerful life lessons.

The musical direction for the album was inspired by the sudden death and loss of her elder sister in 2013 and her Faith and personal relationship with God.
