PASTOR NEYI ZIMU DEAD of a rare blood disorder that affected his skin, THE Jehova Re Tshepile Wena hitmaker

Well-known gospel musician and pastor Neyi Zimu has passed on after a long illness.
Zimu died on Wednesday at Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital’s Zakithi Nkosi Haematology Centre for Excellence, where he had been undergoing chemotherapy for mycosis fungiodes – a rare blood disorder affecting his skin.
The gospel artist pass on after he was diagnosed with skin cancer.It has been a tough few months for family and friends of the Jehova Re Tshepile Wena hitmaker. Earlier in the year his skin started showing changes and he’d appear in public and onstage wearing gloves.
The changes soon started to show on his face too, but he kept on performing even as his condition worsened.
His album The Waiting is Over and an album he did with Omega Khunou, Friends in Praise Volume 1, was doing well. But as his health further deteriorated, he wasn’t able to honour all bookings.
