Simphiew Dana's family is praying for the speedy recovery of their matriarch.

The singer revealed on Instagram that her mother has been diagnosed with COVID-19. Simphiwe revealed that the retired nurse returned to the frontlines of the pandemic to lend a helping hand. 

"My mother, seen here dancing with her little cancer patients, has been diagnosed with the corona virus. She is now a retired nurse who went back to work for an old age home because nursing to her is a calling," the 'Fireband' hitmaker wrote on Instagram.

Simphiwe added that her mother has diabetes - which puts her in one of the high-risk groups. 

"She is recovering at home and seems to be ok. She has diabetes. Still, I have faith she will pull through."
