Mzansi has been thrown into mourning once again as reports confirmed that Gospel singer Sfiso Ncwane died in Johannesburg on Monday morning.
The family’s spokesperson Sipho Makhabane confirmed the sad news, saying;
“Yes, I can confirmed that he passed this morning at about 09:00 at the hospital, they’re still investigating, but it looks like kidney failure.” It was also confirmed that Sfiso was rushed to hospital on Sunday night.
“His wife called the paramedics. He was feeling weak and he was admitted to hospital at 7.30pm,” Makhabane added.
However, it wasn’t up to 24 hours after the health crisis that the gospel star gave up the the ghost. That’s one shocker to end the year with.
“His family is travelling from KwaZulu-Natal to Joburg at the moment. Everyone is in shock,” Makhabane said.
According to Move, the Ku Lungile Baba hit maker was vomiting blood on Sunday night. And now he’s no more. The news of the singer’s passing started spreading on social media after Twitter user Mmatona Ntuane tweeted it. According to her social media profiles, she works for the KwaZulu-Natal department of health.
Earlier this year, his fans told fans on social media to pray for the singer who was admitted to hospital due to Malaria.
“As you sleep tonight please put @sfisoncwane in your prayers, he caught malaria while he traveled to Musina a week ago… We are trusting the great physician Doctor Jesus for healing,” his wife Ayanda Ncwane said.
Subsequently, gospel singer Sfiso Ncwane also shared the news with fans, asking for their prayers.
“Please put me in Prayers I’m not well,” he wrote.
At the age of 37, the singer has produced award-winning hits including Phakama Nkosi yeZulu and Kulungile Baba. He recently released a track titled Hands Up which fans say is more like hip-hop.
May his singing soul rest with Lord.
