Neyi Zimu is enduring a difficult time, currently undergoing chemotherapy for a rare skin disease in Soweto.
TimesLIVE reports that the All Nation Revival Ministries pastor is admitted at the Chris Hani Baragwanath Academic Hospital for the condition known as mycosis.
His wife, Nelisiwe Sibisi-Zimu explains that the problem started two years back with a rash, escalating to the point where it is today:
"Last year, he was on a light therapy and we realised that it was not giving us results. We decided to involve oncology and he has just started chemotherapy. The higher stage treatment of the disease is chemotherapy."

After Economic Freedom Fighter leader Julius Malema visited the 49-year-old in hospital, fans have been flooding him with prayers for a swift recovery.
"It is hard but his situation has brought us together. It has made us to be more aware of each other's needs and brought us closer to God."
The gospel artist has now opted to take a break from both music and church events to focus on his health, set to only return next year if all goes according to plan.
