Dhewa, as Moyo is affectionately known in music circles, made the statement last week at St Annes Hospital where he is recovering.

"I did not give myself enough rest after overworking. I think that strained my health because I worked harder than I was supposed to," he said.

"I am feeling much better now. I will be back on my feet again and I will definitely take a rest the whole of this month," he added.

Moyo thanked Webster Shamu, who is the patron of the Zimbabwe Union of Musicians, and well-wishers for their steadfast support during his time of need.

Donations are pouring in for the ailing artist with US$11 000 having been raised so far towards Dhewa's treatment.

Said Shamu: "The money raised so far should make a big difference in Dhewa's health."

Stakeholders who have donated towards assisting Dhewa include Premier Services Medical Investments who donated $2 800, Mutare businessman Isau Mupfumi ($2 000), Harare businessman Philip Chiyangwa and his wife ($1 000) among other donors.
