GOSPEL legend Sipho “Big Fish” Makhabane is finally out of hospital.
Although some people were claiming that the singer died after being involved in a car accident, the founder of Big Fish Music is recovering in an undisclosed place.
He was discharged from Life Midmed Hospital in Middelburg, Mpumalanga yesterday.
His wife Grace told Daily Sun the family was very happy.
“He is not home yet but is resting peacefully in a quiet place where he can regain his strength,” she said.
“We are happy that he is getting better.”
Grace said she didn’t want to reveal her husband’s whereabouts but said she would tell him the People’s Paper wished him well.
Johan Sibiya, the family spokesman, said previously that Big Fish would start seeing a therapist to recover from the serious head injuries he sustained during a car crash on his way to Delmas two weeks ago.
Johan said although Big Fish had a long road to recovery, everyone was very thankful that his skull was not fractured.
“He was discharged from hospital and is recovering well.
“We want to thank everyone who stood by the family’s side by calling and sending messages and wishing him a speedy recovery,” the spokesman said.
“Their support and prayers were always wonderful and gave us the hope we needed during this very difficult time.”
He asked fans to be patient and said more information would be released in a few days’ time.
Big Fish has discovered some of Mzansi’s top gospel stars, including Hlengiwe Mhlaba, Thobekile Mkhwanazi and Tshepiso Motaung.
