Nothing wrong with Judith
The singer says she is as healthy as ever and is excited about her upcoming TV show
AWARD-WINNING jazz and gospel singer Judith Sephuma did not hold back when she made it known that news of her being in the Intensive Care Unit are bogus and ‘crazy’. The mother of five says she is at her healthiest, rubbishing claims that she is in a health battle of some sort. In a recent newspaper article, she is quoted saying, “I thought I was going to die”, something that has angered her.
JUDITH DISMISSES REPORTS
She responded on social media by saying, “Almost four years ago, I did get a health scare. But not now or anytime recent. I am ok. I am not in any danger and I am definitely not in ICU.”
Reports about this alleged health battle prompted the singer, who often prefers keeping her personal life private, to let us in on her extra-mural activities when she is not on stage.
She wrote on social media, “A few weeks ago, I decided to take on a swimming class because I love water and I got tired of not being able to swim. I am so excited about my swimming lesson. I posted a video on Instagram after my first lesson which inspired so many people who want to learn how to swim.”
Judith has actually burnt some calories, looking slim and trim. She credits this to her training and healthy diet.
“I have been healthy so much so that training has become part of my lifestyle. I've added swimming now,” she wrote.
When she is not indulging in her new hobby, she is preparing for her new exciting role in the entertainment industry. She has added one accolade to her journey as a host of a television show. Her new show called, The Flair, is set to air on GauTV (DStv channel 265) in October.
GauTV has expressed its delight at having an artist of Judith’s calibre joining the television channel. Viewers can expect to see Judith engage in captivating conversations with fellow South African artists.
OVERCOMING HARD TIMES
Judith has remained successful despite challenges she faced in her life over the past few years, matters that could have broken her but didn’t.
Judith was married to her first husband, jazz musician Selaelo Selota, and they have three children together.
She got married again and in 2016 divorced from her second husband, Siphiwe Mhlambi, whom she has two children with. In 2014 the couple sadly lost their three-month-old baby girl.
As if the woes in her personal life were not enough, in 2013, Judith was also involved in an accident where an elderly woman passed away, something Judith says affected her and broke her heart.
Fast forward to 2017, Judith has a lot to look forward to. Her second gospel album titled, The Worship, is out. She officially launched it in her home province, Limpopo, recently.
Judith Sephuma is working hard to put her painful past behind her and focus on the future
