Award-winning gospel star Lundi Tyamara's turbulent past may have hogged headlines over the years, but he will be remembered for the way he turned his life around after facing many challenges.
In April last year the late gospel star appeared on SABC News ahead of his live DVD recording at the Lyric Theatre in Golf Reef City.
The live recording of his best hits launched Lundi's highly-anticipated come back to the industry.
The Mphefumlo Wam hitmaker died during the early hours of Friday morning spending the past six weeks in and out of hospital where he was being treated for stomach TB and liver complications since December.
Thousands of condolence messages have flooded social media ever since news of Lundi's death broke. Judging by the outpouring of tributes one thing that is evident - Lundi has touched the lives of people across the country.
