Recently on one of his twitter tirades, he admits that he is no longer fit to do music as his career is obstinately rusting. So does this mean he is establishing a twitter career?

Another health scare

For those who have been wondering why Derrango has veiled on a career switch, I guess it is now evident. A second health scare hits poor Derrango around as he goes into overdrive. Live performances and record sales keep the bag rolling in but if one is not fit like L’Vovo, over working becomes a death trap.

The artist was recently admitted to a medical facility for fatigue as he was always on the road, performing every other weekend. ”Since the Durban July, I have been busy performing all over the country every weekend. It is not gout but fatigue and being drained,” Derrango speaks out.


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 shames 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!!


What is L’Vovo Derrango Net worth

In 2014, the Award-winning kwaito star, L’vovo leases a house in Durban’s Manor Gardens and sells a Mercedes Benz ML worth R1,3million, a C200 Sports and a Hyundai H1. This causes a stir and people comment, “The guy is in deep financial trouble. We don’t know what’s happening because he spends most of his time with his friends who are not in the music industry. I think he might have overspent the money he received when he signed up with Afrotainment,” said the source.

L’vovo’s manager, Thobela Dlamini, confirmed that they have sold the cars but denied that L’vovo is in financial trouble. “I can tell you now L’vovo is financially stable. He owns a house in Durban. He drives an expensive VW R32 which you can’t even afford. People just love spreading rumours,” Thobela said.


Recently, he has been driving around in a Mercedes Benz SUV till he got himself this gorgeous BMW ride. Although L’Vovo Derrango’s net worth is a mystery, he has enough money to flash around which comes from live performances, endorsement deals and album sales.
