South African gospel star Lundi Tymara passed away of the age of 38 after a short illness.
His manager announced the sad news saying: “Lundi put up a gallant fight against his illness, but God’s will prevailed. We ask that his fans,supporters and followers join us in celebrating his life”.
Lundi, who was dubbed as the “bad boy” of the gospel industry spoke openly about his struggles with drugs and alcohol.
He died on Friday 27th January after being hospitalised in December with stomach TB and liver complications. A public memorial service was held in his honour on 31st January.
Meanwhile, the gospel star’s friend has apparently urged fans to remember Lundi’s contribution to the industry rather than his past.
“I saw on social media people saying he was a drug addict…he used to drink. All these things they are saying were in the past. This is affecting his family badly as they are already broken over his loss,” a close friend Nkululeko Khanyi told bjrlivefm.com.South African Gospel star Lundi Tymara dies at 38 Click To Tweet
