Manager Xolani Majozi says the multi-Grammy award-winning group’s founder has not been well since December .

“He was admitted in hospital in December in Durban. He was then transferred to another hospital in Gauteng. He’s not been feeling well and we plead with the community and all the South Africans to pray for the family of Ladysmith Black Mambazo and the Shabalala family as they are facing this situation. He was referred early in the month around the 3rd of January.”
