It was with shock and sadness that the family of Vuyisa Ngomane (36), fondly known as Viv Bozack, confirmed that he suffered a sudden haemorrhagic stroke during the late morning of Sunday 20 October 2013.
He was alone at the time and was immediately taken to hospital when his family arrived home from church to find him collapsed on the floor.
Viv was stabilised before being rushed to hospital by emergency medical services and at the hospital immediately put on a respirator. Early MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) tests indicated that he experienced a considerable haemorrhagic stroke, which was later confirmed by a specialist.
Currently, Viv is in a stable, but critical condition.
Doctors have indicated that recovery is an individual journey and on this basis the family is imploring all Viv’s wide and loving group of friends and colleagues to pray for him and his recovery. Quick response to treatment within three days of a stroke means greater chance of recovery, according to doctors, and at the moment the family is focused on this medical information and is positive about the outlook until such a time as doctors advise differently.
We encourage all to continue to pray and send thoughts and well wishes to Viv, his partner and his two-year-old son as they negotiate this difficult and emotional time. We also ask that people respect the privacy of the family and that of his close friends.
We have issued this update – and will continue to do so periodically as developments arise – in full knowledge of the fact that Viv is loved by so many, but we also ask that the public and well-wishers allow us the private time to deal with the shock and to start planning for Viv’s recovery.
Viv has had a significant impact on the Eastern Cape music and entertainment industry both through his work at Algoa FM as midday to 3pm presenter and in his personal capacity as an MC, where he has driven the sustained growth of the hip hop, music and entertainment industry.
We are hopeful that he will return to health again in the near future, so he can continue to be the amazing father, partner, brother and son he has always been and so he can remain on his journey making a difference to lives across the Eastern Cape. This is dependent on the thoughts, love and support he receives from all of us who care so deeply for him and your on-going support will remain invaluable to his recovery.
