Musician Dr Malinga has bid his final farewell to fallen counterparts Lundi and Sfiso with an emotional musical tribute that can melt every heart.
Gospel star Lundi Tyamara’s memorial service is underway and friends and family are getting set to honour him this afternoon.
And while we are getting ready for the memorial, Malinga dedicated a heart-touching tribute to him and another gospel icon Sfiso Ncwane who died late last year.
In the musical tribute posted on Instagram, musician Dr Malinga emitted a sense of sadness and a wave of emotion. South Africa will forever miss those two.
Lundi died last Friday after a prolonged sickness. A statement released by the family confirmed that he died at Edenvale hospital in the early hours of Friday morning after a long battle with stomach TB worsened by liver complications. He was 38 years old.
Meanwhile, a public memorial service will take place in honour of the gospel star at Grace Bible Church, Soweto on Tuesday afternoon from 2 pm.
Lundi’s manager and family spokesperson, Anele Hlazo urged South Africans to avail themselves of this opportunity to mourn the late gospel singer. In addition, it will be the best time to show support for Lundi’s family at a difficult time like this.
“This is the time to honour the memory of our great and beloved Lundi.
“It would bring the family and friends so much comfort to see South Africans remember what he was about and all he stood for, everyone is invited,” Hlazo said.
Following his death, fans, celebrities and high-profile personalities already flooded social media with touching tributes to the fallen star and condolences to the family. Some of his celebrity friends also remembered the way Lundi touched the lives of thousands of people through his good music.
The burial arrangements will be announced soon
