Dr Tumi said he was working on releasing an album this weekend, but since the Covid-19 outbreak he decided to put the album on hold. The singer has also been volunteering his services as a doctor at Tembisa Hospital’s specialised Covid-19 unit.
“Being at home doesn’t mean you can’t have church. There are multiple streaming platforms to tune in to for church at home. Find activities to do as a family, like praying and worshipping together during this difficult period”, he said.
Gospel star and professional medical practitioner Dr Tumi plans to take church to people this Easter weekend, revealing he has several online performances in the pipeline.

He said he spends five hours a day in the hospital to relieve the doctors under pressure, and to give back since the entire world is affected by the pandemic. I think it’s important to take all safety measures to protect oneself. I’m not worried about contracting the virus”.
