Thokozani “L’vovo Derrango” Ndlovu trended on social media this week when a video of him looking weak while staggering in his steps went viral.


Social media user @NalaThokozane shared a video of the musician L’vovo struggling to walk after his performance.


“Oh man, it is so sad to see L’vovo like this. Wishing him strength in his recovery journey,” she writes.

Bona reports that Ndlovu is delighted to be able to record music after a hiatus due to recovering from stroke.

The publication adds that his speech was affected by the stroke, and he had a slight facial droop.

Fans of the Durban-based star took to social media to send him well-wishes after watching the video.


L’vovo explains to Zimoja that he was attacked by a sharp pain in his left arm and lost sense on his left-hand side.

The stroke occurred while he was performing at Ndwendwe Music Festival on 23 December 2022. He was about to go on stage when he heard about Mampintsha’s death.

“I was about to go on stage and his death just triggered me. I performed but got the attack before my second last song. I couldn’t feel my left side and I asked them If I could rest for a bit. I have high blood pressure and I have not been taking my medication the way I was supposed to.”

“I know now not to rush to have too many gigs. I live better and take care of myself, especially with my condition. They gave me directions to avoid salty foods and a lot of meat. I was told which fruits to eat and what to avoid and obviously less alcohol.”

Ndlovu was hospitalised due to a stroke days after Mampintsha, who was laid to rest on 30 December 2022.


@Facts_For_SA: “It’s very important to exercise n keep yourself fit to avoid lot of sickness that comes with aging.”

@Proph_Budmon: “He had a stroke. This is probably as good as it gets for him. I love that he’s still performing and still gets to live his life.”

@Mamthi05: “His not bad, I believe he will recover soon. Looking at other stroke survivors he really not bad at all. Praying for his healing.”

@HouseofZwabbash: “Gents, please lift weights and do a little cardio. You don’t have to look like Hercules, but your body will appreciate it greatly. The stronger you are, the harder it is to kill you.”

@Ramaesela2011: “And they must stop eating crap. Why do men think it’s okay to wake up and eat a big bowl of pap and braai meat? Then wash it down with coke or beer.”
