South African artists rally for support for Mapaputsi amid health concerns


South African kwaito music icon Mapaputsi is reportedly facing a serious health setback that has left him bedridden. Concerns have been mounting within the industry as colleagues express difficulty in reaching him, citing his parents’ preference for keeping his illness private.

Mapaputsi, known for his proactive stance on the well-being of fellow musicians, has been noted for his support during their times of need. However, according to sources close to him speaking to TshisaLIVE, there seems to be a noticeable lack of reciprocal support now that he is the one in need.

“When other artists were struggling, Mapaputsi was the first to offer words of encouragement and solidarity. But now, the response seems delayed,” said one source.

An anonymous artist shared their struggles in attempting to visit Mapaputsi, who is currently under the care of his elderly parents, especially his wheelchair-bound mother. “As artists, we want to show our support, but we respect the family’s wish for privacy,” they explained.

Jarius from Trompies admitted being uninformed about Mapaputsi’s condition, as attempts to contact him have gone unanswered. Similarly, Sbu “AmaLawyer” Ntshangase expressed his readiness to visit once permitted by the family, respecting their wishes during this challenging time.

Former manager Busi Kunene voiced concern not only for Mapaputsi but also for his elderly parents, suggesting the possibility of organizing a benefit concert to support them financially. The situation underscores a community’s desire to rally around Mapaputsi during his illness while respecting his family’s wishes for privacy.
