Taking to her @NkhosiLa Twitter account on Tuesday morning, Dlamini tweeted that she'd arrived in the Asian country and thanked Saffas for their continued support.

Dlamini gives followers worrisome health update

In related news previously reported by Briefly News, the story of Dlamini is one of hope and perseverance in the face of the greatest adversity.

The lung transplant and cystic fibrosis patient was the beneficiary of a generous R150 000 donation from rapper Cassper Nyovest towards her life-saving treatment.

The excitement for the ailing social media influencer was palpable across Mzansi as Cassper's timely intervention meant the way to regaining her health could now be paved.

Dlamini, whose courage has been an inspiration to many, has had her down moments, which was amplified by her previous tweets detailing how she'd lost all hope.

But Mzansi has continued to egg her on, with individuals such as the faceless Good Samaritan BI Phakathi also stepping in a few months ago after meeting with Dlamini in Cape Town.
