The Tozeza Baba hitmaker did not stage any local or international shows during the festive season as is often the norm with big names in music.
Although Tuku is diabetic, close family sources yesterday said the music legend has been in and out of hospital since November due to a heart ailment.
At one time, he had water drained from his heart at a local health facility.
“It is sad to have someone close to you under the weather as in the case with Nzou (Tuku), who has not been feeling well for some time now. He has not been well such that at one point he failed to travel for his concert outside the country. Let’s keep him in our prayers,” said the sources who declined to be named
