Cape Town - Mduduzi Tshabalala, better known as Mandoza, is doing much better after a cancer scare last year.

The Kwaito singer’s wife, Mpho, told TMG Entertainment this week that he’s doing better after a tough battle with cancer last year.

Mpho said that they found out that Mandoza had cancer in May last year already but wanted to keep the news out of the press.

Back in July 2015 the Sowetan reported that Mandoza was admitted to hospital after having an issue with his eye, which the singer claimed was due to sinus problems.

Back then the family attributed Mandoza’s hospital visits to “sinus problems” whilst he was actually battling cancer.

Mpho told TMG Entertainment that they wanted to focus on Mandoza getting better. She added that the cancer was detected early and the singer was able to go for treatment immediately.

“He has officially been declared cancer free‚ which is amazing,” Mpho said.

According to reports by the Sunday Sun, Mandoza confirmed that he had skin cancer and added: "Yes, I had cancer but now I’m cancer free."
