PIC: Gospel star involved in a car accident

Musicians from around Cape Town visited gospel singer Thumeka Lothe to show her support. This was after Thumeka was involved in a car accident in the Eastern Cape, which left her bedridden and in pain.

Gospel artists such as Kholekile Hlubi Qongqo and Nokhaya Baba Mahelu prayed with her and brought some groceries.

Thumeka was thankful for the visit, which she said gave her renewed hope.

Kholekile said when Thumeka came to live in Cape Town from Joburg a few years ago, he worked with her doing street performances.

“We heard she was involved in an accident together with her husband while coming from the Eastern Cape where they were performing and promoting their music.

“They were driving their bakkie carrying their instruments and equipment. Their equipment was destroyed and she was injured. She has been bedridden for three months. As friends and artists, we are here to say we are with you and we feel for you and will support you,” said Kholekile.

Kholekile said Nokhaya came up with the idea that they contribute towards Thumeka.

Speaking to the publication, Nokhaya said she visited Thumeka after she heard about the accident.

“I saw that she was not fine and needed us. I spoke to her husband Eric and told him we wanted to do something for Thumeka and he agreed.

“I inboxed some artists and told them about it and some agreed to help. Today we managed to gather what we could to support our fellow artist,” she said.

Thandi Thoba from a prayer group called Thandazeka Thixo said: “We’re here to support Thumeka and we want to see her back on her feet again.”

Bongani Matenjwa, a radio presenter on Radio Zibonele, said: “I’m here to support Thumeka as her fan. I love her music and I wish her a speedy recovery.”

Thumeka thanked the group. “I’m very grateful for the support. I sometimes lose hope but knowing that my fellow artists are there for me makes me very positive,” she said.
