However, the record label released a statement last night after reports emerged that the Ngeke hitmaker is admitted to King Edward Hospital in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal.

The star’s family has pleaded for prayers as he recovers and asked for privacy during this difficult time. “The family asks that the public and media respect their privacy during this difficult time. We ask that you keep him in your prayers. Afrotainment wishes him a speedy recovery and we cannot wait to see him rock our stages again,” Afrotainment further said.
