Forget people spreading malicious rumours about me & appreciate this stunning work by @YoungCreatorSA I hear he’s a self-taught artist. Thank you, I’m honoured
On May 26 2020 released, Menzi’s family released a statement on reports spreading on social media that the actor is critically ill.
The Family of Menzi Ngubane notes with concern the recent spread of social media reports that our father and husband, Menzi Ngubane is critically ill.
The Family is also aware that due to the spread of this inaccurate and unverified news, his fans have even gone as far as sending their messages of his speedy recovery on social media, spawning an unwarranted social media panic. We understand their concerns and support for Menzi, but as the family, we appeal to South Africans to refrain from spreading news that have not been verified and confirmed by the family.
“I would like to confirm that my husband is recovering from support and recuperating after doctors were concerned about his health” said Skie Ngubane.
We are aware that South Africans are concerned about his health and would like to thank them for their prayers and appeal to them to respect hospital/doctor patient confidentiality. Menzi wishes to take this opportunity to fully recover and get back to work as soon as possible.
