In May this year Fredi Nest was admitted to hospital after showing signs of a stroke. According to Maroela Media, Fredi was admitted to the Steve Biko Academic Hospital for treatment, where tests confirmed that he had not one but two brain tumors. Fredi bravely battled the cancer but finally lost the fight on Friday July 3rd, 2015
The 56-year-old singer, who has released 14 studio albums and is best known for his hit songs recorded in Afrikaans Getoor, Sê My, Meer En Meer, Hey DJ and Bly Net Naby My. Fredi’s songs were all very commercial and well liked by his fans.
Fredi’s Music Company Select Music released the following statement:
“We learned with great sadness of the death of our beloved Fredi Nest this morning. He was a giant in the music industry: a singer, songwriter and an inspiration to all of us. Fredi we will miss you, your fire will always burn in our hearts.”
Fredi was a singer of songs, a man of integrity, and above all loved his fans. Prayers go out to his wife and family, his colleagues and his fellow musicians. Fredi will never be forgotten and will live on in our homes and hearts through his music. He believed in writing songs that were easy to understand and easy to listen and dance too. Now there will be no more pain and suffering.
Since the news of Fredi’s death broke, friends and fans throughout the country have taken to Twitter to pay tribute to him. His songs will live forever and so will Fredi Nest.
Rejoicing in Me can protect you from the temptation to complain. When your circumstances are stressful, it is easy for you to become irritable. But I want you to demonstrate gentleness-not irritability. This is possible to the extent that you find Joy in Me. Since I am the same yesterday, today, and forever, there is always much for you to rejoice about.
You can be joyful in the knowledge that I am near. When a man and a woman are deeply in love, they often bring out the best in each other. Just being near the beloved can soothe irritations and increase happiness. I am the Lover who is always nearby-unseen yet tenderly present. I can soothe your frustrations and fill you with Joy as you tune in to My loving Presence. One way to do this is to thank Me for My continual Presence and My constant Love. When circumstances are getting you down, turn your attention to Me and consider the great Love I have for you. Rejoice!
“Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. -Philippians 4:4-5”
