Lulu Dikana, singer and sister of songbird Zonke Dikana reportedly passed away last night.

Dikana was the only local musician who was chosen to accompany John Legend on his All of Me tour.

Her label, Sony confirmed her passing saying they'll soon release a statement.



Dikana, who was 35 at the time of her passing, told The Times in a previous interview that she suffered from an oesophageal perforation which occurs when there is a hole in the oesophagus.



"Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine it would be as serious as that," said Dikana. At the time, she speculated that it could have been aggravated by passive smoke during her time at the Barnyard Theatre in 2007 and 2008, working on the Hot Chocolate production.

"We had spent two weeks in Port Elizabeth, where we buried my dad. On my way back to Johannesburg I fell so ill that I had to be carried in a wheelchair straight from the plane to hospital.

"I was so grief-stricken and had my guard down, which I never allow. I remember trying to drink and eat something and choking. I could speak, but I coughed a lot," said Dikana.

The details of her death are still not clear.

Their sister Busisiwe died last year in May and their father Viva Dikana died in 2009.

Lulu recently released her third album titled I Came To Love.
