Lundi Tyamara: Dead.

South African popular gospel artist Lundi Tyamara has died at the age of 38.

Tyamara’s family says he passed away just after midnight at the Edenvale Hospital​.

He was being treated for abdominal Tuberculosis (TB) and a liver condition.

As family members and supporters of the gospel artist reflect on his life, he’s been hailed as a special person who was always a light in the dark tunnel.

An emotional family spokesperson Anele Hlazo says, “Lundi was like a light in the room. When he comes in, you know…”

On Monday, Tyamara was moved to High Care as his condition worsened.

Messages of condolences have also been posted on social media on Friday morning, including from Johannesburg Mayor Herman Mashaba. – EYE WITNESS NEWS

  8. We Malawians are absolutely different from other nationals. We think we’re better off yet we’re perfect Zeros, we’re so JELOUSY that when someone among ourselves has access to a breaking news, we feel agitated, angry that it would have been us to break that news. Jelousy Malawians makes us rude yet we need more to ask from our friends. Thumbs Up Malawi 24 for your breaking news. He really passed on in the wee hours of today. Jelousy, Attitude, Rudeness, Envy won’t help us please Malawians!!!

  9. Hambakahle mzalwane siyakhumbula nje umthandazo wakho..kule ngoma uthi..letha okukhanya empilwen yam kodwa umnyama uyikhohlile..lala kahle ndoda
