TODAY Mzansi bids farewell to gospel star, Lundi Tyamara.
Scores of celebrities are expected to pay their last respects to their fallen colleague.
The likes of Rebecca Malope, Deborah Fraser, Sechaba and Jaziel Brothers took time off to fly down to Worcester, in the Western Cape.
That’s where the late star will be buried today, in the presence of many mourners from showbiz.
Lundi’s manager Anele Hlazo said the singer’s body was flown down to his hometown on Wednesday.
Lundi died on 27 January after battling a long illness. 
Anele said the service would start around 7.30am at Lundi’s house, before heading to the stadium at 9am.
Anele said Lundi would be laid to rest at the Zwelithemba cemetery.
“The only disappointment is that there are some people who are trying to tarnish Lundi’s reputation, even when he is no more.
“I’m still appealing to them to leave the family to mourn and bury him in peace – instead of focusing on negative issues,” said Anele.
Sechaba said he arrived early in Cape Town so he could attend the memorial service in Lundi’s hometown. 
“I know many artists are arriving later because there was an accom-modation shortage when I arrived.
“Many places were fully booked on Friday and I couldn’t get myself a car because rentals had ran out of cars at the airport,” he said.
Sechaba said he was impressed by the attendance at the memorial service in Worcester.
“It was packed, just like in Joburg. The community came out in large numbers – which shows they loved Lundi,” said Sechaba.
But he said there were not too many celebrities at Lundi’s memorial service in Worcester.
