He told the publication that he struggled to even turn to his faith and prayer began to feel like a chore to him. The only thing he could bring himself to do was sing and listen to music. He said:
"One of the reasons I broke down the way I did was that my mom was my everything. The reason I wanted to succeed was because of her. She was a single parent [and] she raised me the best way she could so I wanted to do right by her. When I lost her I kind of lost purpose because she was my purpose. I had to really find another reason to look forward to life."
After receiving plenty of support from friends and family, he was able to remind himself of his path and that was destined to focus on God.

Briefly News reported that gospel artist Sbu Noah has penned a touching letter to his "resilient" mom on her birthday.
The Ewe Getsemane hitmaker took to social media to tell his fans how grateful he is to have Thembisile Mthembu as his mother. The star said his mother's faith "makes my faith look like it's nothing".
"When I tell the story of this woman I call mom; people think I'm talking about a movie I've watched or book I've read! Hers is a story of faith, resilience and hope. Her faith makes my faith look like its nothing... her resilience, she has survived so much yet handles tough situations with so much grace only God can give... hope, my goodness, I've never met someone who, no matter how hard things are but somehow finds a way to believe that things will get better!"
