Cape Town - The family of Neyi Zimu are asking South Africans to pray for the gospel artist after he was diagnosed with skin cancer.
At a recent gospel concert in Polokwane where Neyi was scheduled to perform, his brother finally broke the silence and told fans what was happening. "Neyi has a very rare skin cancer, we thought it was something small until the diagnosis," Silas Zimu said.
"The good news is that he is in good hands, specialists and doctors are looking after him 24 hours [a day]. Hence, as a family, we said he needs to be grounded just to get rid of this disease so that he can come back healthier."
Later during the concert, Pastor Solly Mahlangu and his fans prayed for his healing.
After months of keeping his illness private, other gospel artists are now asking for South Africans to unite in prayer for his healing.
