Mosehla leaves his wife in a state of a nervous breakdown after his death
Millicent Mosehla has opened about the loss of her husband, the late and great gospel icon Israel Mosehla.
The gospel star’s death was confirmed to TshisaLIVE by Millicent on Monday morning.
According to SowetanLIVE, the Ke Utlwa Lerato hitmaker gave up the ghost at the age of fifty after “battling hypertension that eventually causes heart failure”.
Taking to Instagram, Millicent shared her distress about his death.
Posting a photograph of herself together with her late hubby, she said she has been left shattered by the loss.
“You left me shattered,” wrote Millicent.
The Sowetan-born icon came from a family of worshippers, with both his parent’s musicians and pastors. His family released three gospel albums with Gallo Records.
In 1985, Israel was also a part of the dynamic group G. Effect with brother Isaiah and friends Bongani Matsobane and Jabu Nkabinde before branching off into a successful solo gospel career.
Millicent and Israel had been married for 29 years. The couple has six children: Lesego, Tshegofatso, Katlego, Kagiso, Keitumetse, and Gontse.
In 2016 in an interview with Move!, the musician opened about being a fanatical husband.
“I believe I even have the responsibility to show my children the difference between right and wrong. it’s important for a family to measure and base everything they are doing on Biblical principles,” said Israel.
