In the clip, L’vovo’s is seen struggling to move around as he would freely move on stage in the past. As he sings, it is also evident that he is struggling to enunciate his words properly.

Speaking to ZiMoja, an attendee at the concert said that they enjoyed the musician’s performance.

“He tried. We enjoyed the show. He was with Tzozo and he made him a bit lively. His voice is still the same, but the body has been affected,” said the fan.

The music artist suffered a stroke he had just days after his friend, Mandla “Mampintsha” Maphumulo succumbed to the same illness on Christmas Eve that year. Days later, there was rumours that L’vovo had also passed, however, his record label (Derrango Records) moved swiftly to dispell them on social media.

This also came after he was hospitalised due to a head-on collision involving a truck and his VW Polo, 30km from his mother’s home in May 2022, TshisaLIVE reported.

“I watch what I eat, where I go, I get rest and I take care of myself. I have been receiving a lot of support from close friends who have been there for me since day one.”
