Veteran gospel musician Deborah Fraser has revealed that she can’t walk and that she uses a wheelchair to move around.

The Umsamaria hitmaker also said that she has been sick and that she had to be hospitalised for close to two months between February and March.

Fraser added that it all began when she started vomiting uncontrollably. That led her to lose strength and finally she could not walk.

All these revelations came after a video of her performing while sitted on a wheelchair chair surfaced on social media.


Some of her followers thought she was acting, thus forcing the KwaZuluNatal born musician to narrate her story.

Deborah said her diabetes was the cause of all these problems. She still has hopes of walking again as she is doing physiotherapy.

Her popular album Abanye Bayombona sold over a million copies.
