On Wednesday morning, South
Africans woke up to the sad news of the passing of The Real Housewives of
Johannesburg star, Naledi Willers. The 30-year-old passed away in hospital
on Tuesday evening.
Speaking to TRUELOVE, family spokesperson and former Big Brother Africa contestant, Oneal Madumo says that before her passing, Naledi was being cared for by her family at home.
“She was sick and was being cared for at home, but when she passed away on Tuesday night, she was at the Netcare Linksfield Hospital after experiencing complications,” he says.
Although the model and businesswoman had a long battle with cancer, Oneal says that the postmortem results would determine the cause of her passing.
“Naledi was a breast cancer survivor and although that could have been a contributing factor, only the postmortem results, which we are still waiting for, will determine the cause of her death,” he tells us, before disclosing that the funeral and memorial details will be communicated soon.
“The family in Botswana is very heartbroken and they are still arranging the details for the funeral. The details will be shared in due course,” he concludes.
Naledi was born in Botswana where she became the 2nd princess of the Miss Botswana pageant in 2009. She got married to radio personality, Quinton “The Naked DJ” Masina, in 2017 and they divorced two years later. She was a law graduate and was recently adored by fans for her participation in season one of the popular reality TV series, The Real Housewives of Johannesburg.
Since the news of her passing broke, tributes have been pouring in from heartbroken fans and colleagues.
