DR DEBORAH FRASER IN A WHEELCHAIR
56-year-old gospel singer – Dr Deborah Fraser has revealed why she is in a wheelchair and can’t walk.
The star stated in an interview with Daily Sun: “It all began when I started vomiting uncontrollably and I lost my strength.”
“Ever since then, I haven’t been able to walk.”
She says her movement coordination does not function well because when she wants to go right, she goes left instead.
The Abanye Bayombona hitmaker added that she’s been sick and was hospitalised earlier this year in February and March.
She also told the publication that things haven’t been easy for her and she’d hoped her fans wouldn’t see her in such as stated and added that the performance in the video was ages ago.
She had to honour her commitment and perform even in a wheelchair.
‘I CAN’T WALK BUT MY VOICE WORKS’
The KwaMashu-born singer reassures her fans that her voice still works perfectly even though she can’t walk.
She also told the People’s Paper that she is diabetic and that she’s now in high spirits and is receiving all the help she needs.
“I am hopeful that I will walk again. I am seeing a therapist and I am due for physiotherapy next week.”
Fraser says she’s doing way better and that’s why she can do interviews.
Her fans responded to the video and have wished her well on social media:
@lebm_t: “Shocking that she is on a wheelchair and lost so much weight…may God heal you – our legend – our queen and our mom.”
