Months after his wife Babes Wodumo was reported to have fallen very ill.
It looks like Big Nuz member Mampintsha has had his health go down the drain after he was admitted to a hospital.
The musician according to tabloid publication The Daily Sun, he suffered a stroke and was rushed to hospital.
The Kwaito star is currently admitted at King Edward Hospital in Durban, KZN. He was later on transferred to Durdoc Hospital in Durban Central.
This news was confirmed by his sister, Pinki Gumede who revealed that he was not in good health.
She said Shimora really looked sick and his speech was highly affected he couldn’t speak anymore.
Pinki said, Mampintsha revealed to her that the issue started after he visited a Sangoma. “He told us that he consulted with isangoma and was told he needs to do (amagobongo) traditional ceremony,” said Pinki.
“He asked us to buy a goat and get impepho so he could perform the ritual. We went back home and did exactly that. But he never arrived.
Instead, he phoned and told us to perform the ritual without him. We were surprised by this but couldn’t do anything. As a result, we slaughtered the goat and ate it. But we didn’t burn impepho.”
It’s is currently not known if he is getting better or not.
Mampintsha rose to fame in the early years of Kwaito together with his fellow group members of Big Nuz.
He made massive shock waves with hit songs such as Umlilo and made the famous hashing trend #FactDurbanRocks.
He then moved to be a solo artist and married fellow musician Babes Wodumo. The two became a power couple as they ventured their record label.
They opened record label WestInk, which saw the creation of many other Gqom hit songs.
