Khaya and her COVID-19 battle
Khaya was down with COVID-19 earlier this year. In July 2020, Khaya had written about her recovery process on her social media for her fans. She wrote:
“I’m living proof of beating Covid-19. 14 days of isolation have been a journey of introspection, new habits, and (the) return of some old ones.
“This journey has been an emotional and psychological battle. The day people understand the power of mind, the better. As soon as your mind tells your lungs you can’t breathe … you will not breathe. As soon as your mind tells your body you are dying … You will die.”
