He stated:

"The 2018 episode [heart attack] is something that I will reveal more in the book because it was never a heart attack. It was a threat on my life. People said it was a heart attack, and I was okay with that. I rode along, I didn't argue... they wrote that it was a heart attack. I've only had two heart attacks."

"People are very quick to bash their keyboards that I've had another heart attack. They didn't even know what hospital I was in, which was great, but I was in a hospital that no one would have thought. They would have probably rushed to a Sunninghill or some private hospital. I wasn't in one of those institutions."

For context, the entire interview can be heard here.

In 2008, the-then 35-year-old Marawa was struck by a heart attack after a gym session, as per Eye Witness News. He also said that while experiencing his second instance of a heart issue, he drove himself to the hospital.
