L”Vovo Derrango health scare
A near death experience in 2019 has the singer change his eating habits and aim at being fit. The loud music reverberates and everyone on the dance floor is dropping it like it’s hot to L’Vovo’s Iyavaya. He can feel the pain in his chest but he ignores it. Maybe if i brush it off it will stop, he thinks to himself. He has to make the bag right. Suddenly he can’t breathe and he can see his soul leaving his frail body. Is this the end? “I was very scared and was in so much trouble I had to stop performing. I decided then and there I wasn’t going to give up.” His associates suggest taking him to hospital but L’vovo refuses as hospitals scare the crap out of him.
Another health scare

It is not gout but fatigue and being drained,” Derrango speaks out.
Fact Durban Rocks
Who is L’Vovo’s girlfriend?
There is nothing as embarrassing than a grown man facing public rejection after sending flirt signals. L’Vovo could have saved himself the embarrassment by sliding into the DM, isn’t it what inboxes are for? Thick Leeyonce had to hang the poor man out to dry and let the whole world see. She side-splittingly responds to Derrango’s tweets telling him to stop making moves on her. The model debases Lvovo by uncle-zoning him. Was it a stunt to expose their huge age difference or she simply was hinting she is taken? Single ladies please come save Uncle Derrango!!
L’Vovo’s advice on fake friends and social distancing.
Ever heard of the term squad goals? Well squad friendship isn’t goals. It’s the fakest type of friendship ever and L’Vovo agrees with me. Covid -19 had Mzansi on a beer thirst movement for two months and when the ban gets lifted every drunkard is in a frenzy. L’Vovo takes this chance to warn his fans. “Don’t drink with friends that will send you to go and buy whatever they need, because they are loaded with cash, those people are not genuine friends,” he warns.
Lvovo presages his fans that their friends may send them to go to buy things for them in front of their girlfriends. He told them to be careful of such friends. He also commented on a video of people singing in the queues at Makro posted by DJ Tira on Twitter. “Imagine you can order the same alcohol online. All these people have smartphones. Ayi kusakude phambili” (There’s still a long way to go)” he wrote. Social distancing please!!!
