An urgent call for prayer has gone out from Jerusalem for South African actor and cast member of Daniel The Musical, Andile Gumbi, 36, who is currently in a critical condition in hospital after he fell ill suddenly yesterday.

According to a press release from the team staging the musical in the Jerusalem Theatre, Gumbi’s condition deteriorated early this morning and he suffered a cardiac arrest but the medical personnel at Shaare Zedek Medical Centre managed to successfully resuscitate him.

All performances of Daniel The Musical, which received a standing ovation at its opening last Thursday, have been suspended until further notice.

“It is comforting to know that Andile is receiving the best medical care in the world as he is fighting for his life and the medical professionals are trying to determine the cause of his condition. We further ask that people pray for his speedy and full recovery,” says the production team.

“Our main priority now is to get Andile’s wife to him from South Africa and to ensure that we support him to the best of our ability.

“Thank you to all those who have supported us with prayers, words of encouragement. We came here to be a blessing to Israel and now find ourselves being blessed by Israel.

“We want to thank the deputy director-general of the Shaare Zedek Medical Centre, Dr Ofer Merin and his dedicated staff for the great care they are giving Andile. We are deeply indebted to you.”

Gumbi is the lead singer in Daniel The Musical and plays the role of King Nebuchadnezzar. He is a talented and experienced performer who played the part of Simba in both the Broadway and West End productions of The Lion King.

From its conception by SA singer/songwriter Joe Niemand, Daniel the Musical hafaced — and miraculously overcome — a series of obstacles. Andile’s sudden illness is viewed by the show’s team as a spiritual attack that must be faced with fervent prayer. Please share this article and call to prayer.

  1. We pray for speedy recovery of Andile. This obviously is an attack from Satan.We know that Issiah 54 vs 17. Declares that no weapon formed against him shall prosper. He is in safe hands of doctors in Israel. These are men and woman with God given ability. They are the best in the world. Is there anything to hard for the lord. I thank God that Joe Niemand took this show to the Holy Land. Romans 8 vs 28.

  3. In the Mighty Name of The Father,Jesus The Son,and the Blessed Power of The Holy Spirit,all believers rebuke this sudden illness and claim complete healing, that The Father may be glorified,and the eyes of doubters be opened to His universal dominion over His creation. To this may we all say Amen.
