Johannesburg – Prayers and well wishes have poured in for kwaito star Mandoza after reports emerged that he has been diagnosed with a brain tumor. 

Speaking to YOU magazine, the artist’s wife, Mpho, explained what led to the diagnosis, saying that they had decided to seek medical attention when the star complained of severe headaches as well as a problem with his eye.

It was like a repeat of events for the family as the Nkalakatha singer had battled a type of skin cancer just last year. 

After undergoing an MRI scan, the couple were informed that the cancer was back and it had developed into a brain tumor. 

About the physical state of her husband, Mpho says that he is still able to complete everyday tasks, disproving reports that he is in a critical state.

Admitting that it does place strain on her sometimes, she remains positive, asking that the public continue to pray for her husband.  

Mandoza is still set to perform at the SABC's concert at Orlando Stadium on 24 September.
