Lvovo Derrango, a musician, has been admitted to hospital after suffering a stroke during a performance in Ndwedwe, KwaZulu-Natal. On Saturday, his record label, Derrango Records, confirmed this.
“This is a public notification to media, events promoters, fans, and all relevant stakeholders by Derrango Records on behalf of its multi-award winning artist by the name of Thokozani Sphamandla Ndlovu also known as ‘Lvovo Derrango’.
“Lvovo Derrango suffered a minor stroke during his performance at Indwedwe on [Friday]. He is admitted at the hospital for medical attention and he is responding very well.
“We kindly ask that you keep him in your prayers and we’re confident that he will come out of this difficult situation stronger. The family kindly ask for public and media to respect their privacy during this difficult time,” read the statement.
The Durban-born musician was involved in a car accident on May 10.
He was returning home from an event in his hometown of Newcastle when he was involved in a head-on collision, according to him. A tipper truck hit his VW Polo 30 kilometers from his mother’s house.
“This experience has taught me to live life to the fullest, appreciate life, take care of my body, be grateful for those who love me and always tell them you love them because you don’t know when the time is time.”
While recuperating at home in June, the kwaito star took to Instagram to express his gratitude for his fans’ kindness and for wonderful people.
“I want to take this moment to let you know how much you are appreciated. You are all true angels to me, and I’m more grateful to you than words can express,” he wrote.
He later shared that he was able to walk without the aid of crutches after recovering from the car accident.
