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."

News of Phiri's ailing health was first reported this week.

    Its like you learn my thoughts! You appear to grasp so much approximately this, like you wrote
    the e book in it or something. I feel that you simply could do with
    some percent to power the message house a bit, however other
    than that, that is excellent blog. A great read.
    I will certainly be back. minecraft free download

    I've been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting
    article like yours. It's pretty worth enough for me.

    In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as
    you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever
    before. minecraft free download 2018
