Musician and actress Candy Tsa Mandebele has put to rest rumours that she has died. This is after musician and actress Tumi Masemola posted a collage on her Twitter account of women who recently passed that inspired her.

In the post which has since been deleted, Tumi mistook this with former Muvhango actress Candy Moloi. This got fans wondering if the Candy Tsa Mandebele singer has passed on.

Candy assured everyone that’s she’s still alive and kicking.

“I AM #STILLHERE WELL AND ALIVE GUYS #KEYAPHILA ???? Twitted by @tumifromthegang”

Tumi, who recently joined the cast of The River, later realised her mistake and apologised to fans and Candy.

“My sincere apologies for my grave error. I am completely embarrassed and wish I could dig a hole. Le ntshwareleng for posting incorrect image. CandyTsamaNdebele is very much alive,” she posted.

Candy told DRUM that she’s in good health after she recently scored a new gig on the SABC1 local drama series, Skeem Saam.
