South African music legend and former Stimela frontman Ray Phiri has died at the age of 70.

Phiri's family has confirmed the news on Wednesday morning.

He had been battling lung cancer and was being treated at a Nelspruit hospital when he passed away in the early hours of this morning.

Family spokesperson Paul Nkanyane says they're devastated.

"He has been bad for the past few days. I spoke to him on Monday and he was struggling but unfortunately, there was nothing we could have done. The doctors say they tried all that they could to help him out."

    Hey there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with
    hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up
    losing a few months of hard work due to no backup. Do you have
    any solutions to prevent hackers?

    Hey there would you mind letting me know which web host you're working with?

    I've loaded your blog in 3 completely different web browsers and I must say this blog loads a
    lot quicker then most. Can you suggest a good internet hosting provider at
    a fair price? Cheers, I appreciate it!
