News of Sfiso Ncwane’s death in Johannesburg early last week sent shock waves through the South African entertainment community and the country at large. The family’s spokesperson Sipho Makhabane confirmed the sad news, saying;
“Yes, I can confirmed (sic) that he passed this morning at about 09:00 at the hospital, they’re still investigating, but it looks like kidney failure.”
The award-winning singer was rushed to the hospital following a health scare at his home in Johannesburg. However, it wasn’t up to 24 hours after the health crisis that the gospel star gave up the the ghost.
Subsequently, we were able to confirm from the family that Sfiso Ncwane’s death was caused by kidney failure. After two befitting memorial services held in honour of the fallen star, family‚ some high-profile personalities and well-wishers including thousands of fans gathered at Moses Mabhida Stadium‚ Durban‚ on Saturday for Sfiso Ncwane’s funeral.
It was an opportunity to pay their final respects to the gospel star whose life was cut short. Thus, everyone saw the need to endure the unfriendly weather to witness the event. The singer used his music to effect a positive change in the lives of many and it was the least they could do.
