The singer and minister has offered his late mother several tributes on Twitter, with others including Economic Freedom Fighters spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi offering social media tributes to the late pastor and singer.
In December, Benjamin tweeted that he was looking after his mom at her home in Meadowlands, Soweto, after she took ill.
“I thank God and my family members for her recuperation,” he said at the time.
Dube’s cause of death is not yet clear.
When the Holy Spirit ????????????????was in the move at High Praise Centre-Crossover last year, she came on to the pulpit and put her arms around me,and didn’t want to leave….I felt the Blessing right there just like Jesus who said “who touched me?”. . Thanks MOM❤️ pic.twitter.com/khiuc8o9E2
