This week, Mandoza’s wife, Mpho, told City Press that they were taking it one day at a time while her husband was being treated.

Asked how their children were coping, she said: “They seem to be fine with the grace of the Lord.”

Mpho told You magazine: “It was like history was repeating itself because it sounded very similar to the last time.”

Mandoza’s friend and producer Gabi le Roux broke the news on Facebook this week: “A great son of our Mzansi soil is in trouble. Mandoza ‘Nkalakatha’ is fighting for his life after having cancer treatment in 2015; it has unfortunately metastasised to his brain. Doctors and medical staff are trying whatever they can and we are not giving up hope for his recovery.”
