According to an elderly relative referred to as uncle Thabo Tyamara in family circles,who recently made headlines after he revealed what really took place during the moment Lundi passed on. Lundi had a vision on his deathbed 3 days before he died.
”I’m so heart-broken about everything as far as Lundi’s death is concerned. It was on a Tuesday,just 3 days before he died that he was closing his eyes on his deathbed and whispered that he is ‘seeing his longtime friends’ who passed away, Mandoza (real name Mduduzi Tshabalala) and Sfiso Ncwane calling him, by that time I was so confused and I didn’t know how to answer him back, I knew he was not joking and his mind was up-straight”, uncle Tyamara was quoted.
Sources close to the musician confirmed he died in an Edenvale hospital in the early hours of Friday last week. The Ndixolele hit maker was moved to ICU on Monday after his condition took a turn for the worse.
