Johannesburg born comedian, actor and TV/Radio personalty is reported to have been sick for a while now, one that gave him no choice but to back out as the event host since the infection affected both his auditory and respiratory parts and have seized to get better.
To all my fans and everyone who makes what I do possible. I’ve been fighting a severe upper respiratory and ear infection this week and despite tons of medication the infection has gotten the better of me.
Due to the infection and strain on my vocal chords the doctor has ordered me to rest my voice and recover my health. I desperately wish I could dismiss the doctor but the added risk of flying means that decision would be highly irresponsible and may cause further damage. I love the Mama’s and more importantly I love performing in my country. Myself and MTV Africa have been trying to make the Mamas a reality for a few years and I was so excited because this was finally the year where the pieces fell into place and the date was one I could do.
I push myself as hard as I can all the time because I appreciate every opportunity I am afforded in life. Unfortunately there comes a day like today when it all catches up and my body cannot do what my mind wishes I could.
I’m so sorry if I’ve disappointed you but please know that I love performing more than anything in life and so having to cancel any show, breaks my heart. Sorry isn’t enough of a word to convey how I feel and again to all my fans I will do my utmost to make it up to you.
With the event set to hold tomorrow being October 22nd, the organizers, on the other hand, have no choice but to find a perfect replacement immediately and there emerged one of South African Media Personality, Bonang Matheba.
The event will be aired live on MTV Base (DStv Channel 322) and MTV (DStv Channel 130) tomorrow being Saturday, 22 October, at exactly 21:00 CAT, as it takes host on same day at the Ticketpro Dome in Johannesburg.
