Mandoza’s wife has confirmed he will be one of the acts lined up to perform at an SABC concert in Soweto on Saturday.

“He will be at the concert at Orlando Stadium on Saturday. A hundred artists are involved,” said Mpho.

Yesterday, a statement was released by Mpho pointing out that Mandoza, real name Mduduzi Tshabalala, had suffered from cancer, and after receiving treatment, it had returned to his brain in the form of a tumour.

“His condition is serious. He is getting treatment at home. He doesn’t want to do any interviews, but he is okay. I’ve been getting support and prayers from Mandoza’s fans and the nation,” Mpho said.
