LISTEN: Mentor recalls Lundi Tyamara's fighting spirit

Founder of Zuzmuzi Music, Tshepo Nzimande, says he met Lundi Tyamara when he came to Johannesburg to sing with Rebecca Malope in 1995.

Nzimande says he recorded Tyamara's first album soon after discovering his talent.

He recalls that Malope and late Vuyo Mokoena were the popular gospel singers at the time.

We started the album, it was on Wednesday. The following week on Wednesday, we finished it.

Nzimande says he will remember Tyamara for his moves on stage and someone who did not give up.

I will remember Lundi as one of the toughest gospel artists I have ever seen.

He went through a lot in his time, in such a way that there was a time where I thought he would give up.
