It has been two years since the kwaito star Mduduzi Tshabala aka Mandoza was diagnosed with brain tumour. On Tuesday morning, his wife Mpho Tshabalala told eNCA the artist complained of a headache a few weeks ago. The family says it would like to stress the fact that musician is not in hospital and is waiting for additional medication from abroad.


Tshabalala has called on South Africans to keep the artist in their thoughts and prayers. She’s also asked the family be given space.

For now, Mandoza has cancelled all international gigs – but can still be seen on local stages, including this weekend at Orlando Stadium.
