According to DRUM, who can confirmed that sources close to Lundi Tyamara, says that he’s been in a Johannesburg hospital for a month.

“He is not looking well at all but we are praying that he beats this. He is suffering from abdominal tuberculosis, chest pains and he has had a liver problem for a while now,” the first source, who visited him recently in hospital, said.

He apparently spent his birthday (16 December), Christmas and New Year in hospital, and is still there “fighting for his life”.

“I don’t think he will be able to perform for a while after being released. It is important that people, especially artists, start taking a good care of themselves and their health. Let’s all put him in our prayers as we cannot afford to lose another gospel star like we did end of last year with Sfiso Ncwane,” the source, who is a close friend of Lundi’s, said.
