Music sensation Candy Tsa Mandebele rely on government food parcel to survive due to this

Candy Tsa Mandebele comes from a musical family, as his mother was the leader of the Khekhapa traditional musical community. The Khekhapa community was founded to use music and dance to educate and instill cultural values. Tsa Mandebele is Mandebele's most popular album, which won Metro FM Song of the Year in 2003.

For millions of South Africans, times are tough, and one of them is music sensation Candy Tsa Mandebele, who has taken the difficult decision to return home.

Many people have lost their jobs and livelihoods as a result of the national lockdown imposed by the global pandemic. Candy Tsa Mandebele had been severely harmed when the new normal began. Many artists' primary source of revenue, which was playing on stages and in clubs, was shut down as a result of the pandemic, putting a strain on their finances.

Candy had to rely on R600 from her elderly mother to buy groceries at one point because she couldn't afford them. "I applied for assistance from the Department of Recreation, Arts, and Culture but have yet to hear back. “It's difficult,” she said at the time to TshisaLive.

She posted a note on Facebook explaining why she wanted to relocate. "Packing my belongings after 25 years in Gauteng due to COVID-19 was not easy but I had to," she wrote in a separate post about having to leave Johannesburg after living there for 25 years.
